    Just in case you missed this one.

    An elderly man in Florida had
    > owned a large farm for several years. He had a large pond in the
    > back, fixed up for family get together:
    > Picnic tables,
    > horseshoe court, a volleyball court, and some apple and peach trees.
    >
    > The pond was shaped and fixed up for swimming.
    > One evening the farmer decided to go down to the pond and look it
    > over, as he hadn't been there in awhile. He grabbed a five-gallon
    > bucket to bring back some fruit.
    >
    > As he neared the pond, he heard voices shouting and laughing with
    > glee. As he came closer, he saw it was a bunch of young women
    > skinny-dipping in his pond. He made the women aware of his presence
    > and they all went to the deeper end.
    >
    > One of the women shouted to him, 'We're not coming out until you
    > leave!'
    >
    > The old man frowned, 'I didn't come down here to watch you ladies swim
    > naked or make you get out of the pond naked.'
    >
    > Holding the bucket up he said, 'I'm here to feed the alligators'
    >
    > Some old men can still think fast.

    LETTER FROM AN IOWA FARM KID

    (NOW AT San Diego MARINE CORPS RECRUIT TRAINING)

    Dear Ma and Pa,

    I am well. Hope you are. Tell Brother Walt and Brother Elmer the Marine Corps beats working for old man Minch by a mile. Tell them to join up quick before all of the places are filled.

    I was restless at first because you got to stay in bed till nearly 6 a.m. but I am getting so I like to sleep late. Tell Walt and Elmer all you do before breakfast is smooth your cot, and shine some things. No hogs to slop, feed to pitch, mash to mix, wood to split, fire to lay. Practically nothing.

    Men got to shave but it is not so bad, there's warm water. Breakfast is strong on trimmings like fruit juice, cereal, eggs, bacon, etc., but kind of weak on chops, potatoes, ham, steak, fried eggplant, pie and other regular food, but tell Walt and Elmer you can always sit by the two city boys that live on coffee. Their food,
    plus yours, holds you until noon when you get fed again. It's no wonder these city boys can't walk much.

    We go on 'route marches,' which the platoon sergeant says are long walks to harden us. If he thinks so, it's not my place to tell him different. A 'route march' is about as far as to our mailbox at home. Then the city guys get sore feet and we all ride back in trucks.

    The country is nice but awful flat The sergeant is like a school teacher. He nags a lot. The captain is like the school board. Majors and colonels just ride around and frown. They don't bother you none.

    This next will kill Walt and Elmer with laughing. I keep getting medals for shooting. I don't know why. The bulls-eye is near as big as a chipmunk head and don't move, and it ain't shooting at you like the Higgett boys at home. All you got to do is lie there all comfortable and hit it. You don't even load your own cartridges. They come in boxes.

    Then we have what they call hand-to-hand combat training. You get to wrestle with them city boys. I have to be real careful though, they break real easy. It ain't like fighting with that ole bull at home. I'm about the best they got in this except for that Tug Jordan from over in Silver Lake . I only beat him once. He joined up the same time as me, but I'm only 5'6' and 130 pounds and he's 6'8' and near 300 pounds dry.

    Be sure to tell Walt and Elmer to hurry and join before other fellers get onto this setup and come stampeding in.

    Your loving daughter,


    Alice

    I used my red crayon this time instead of the spy pen!

    Re: Good for a chuckle

    But the real question is, is it compatible with your "secret decoder ring" and "optional X-ray specs???"

    Gee, fellas, I've always wanted to see girls' underclothes....
