    Ten Dollars
    ============

    Fred and his wife Edna went to the state fair every year.
    Every year Fred would say, "Edna, I'd like to ride in that there airplane." And every year Edna would say, "I know Fred, but that airplane ride costs ten dollars, and ten dollars is ten dollars."

    One year Fred and Edna went to the fair and Fred said, "Edna, I'm 71 years old. If I don't ride that airplane this year I may never get another chance."

    Edna replied, "Fred that there airplane ride costs ten dollars, and ten dollars is ten dollars."

    The pilot overheard them and said, "Folks, I'll make you a deal. I'll take you both up for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and not say one word, I won't charge you, but if you say one word it's ten dollars."

    Fred and Edna agree and up they go. The pilot does all kinds of twists and turns, rolls and dives, but not a word is heard.
    He does all his tricks over again, but still not a word.

    They land and the pilot turns to Fred, "By golly, I did everything I could think of to get you to yell out, but you didn't."

    Fred replied, "Well, I was going to say something when Edna fell out, but ten dollars is ten dollars."

    For you and hotshot , remember to hide notes, chicken bones or beer cans in the stud cavities for the next remodeler to find.

    I am partial to the folks who hide plastic skeletons in dead spaces under stairs, etc.

    Celtic knot-shamrock cross
    by Ennobee
    My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....

    Hi Jim.
    glad to hear back from you. I have been absent almost just as long, but that was just because my 9-5 morphed into a 12-hour a day job due to... Something with the economy I guess. So yes. Good luck with your house. How come I have the feeling that after all this work you'll end up living...
