STORIES


A three year-old boy went with his dad to see the new baby calves.  On returning home, he breathlessly informed his mother, "There were two boy calves and two girl calves."  "How did you know that ?" his mother asked. "Daddy picked up their leg and looked underneath," he replied. I think it's printed on the bottom.

A bull calf was getting out of the barn yard. The rancher becoming upset that the bull calf was getting out, raised the fence another foot. Next morning the bull calf was out again. The rancher become upset again, raised the fence another foot. Another bull calf asked the bull calf that was getting out, "How high do you think the rancher will raise the fence." The bull calf said, "About 10 more feet higher, unless somebody locks the gate at night."

A teacher was trying to get his seventh-grade history class to understand how the Indians must have felt when they first encountered the Spanish Explorers. "How would you feel,"  he asked, "if someone showed up on your doorstep who looked very different, spoke a strange language and wore unusual clothes?  Wouldn't you be a bit scared?"  " Nah," one boy answered, "I'd just figure it was my sister's date."

A Smile
Smiling is infectious. You catch it like the flu. When someone smiled at me today. I started smiling too.
I passed around the corner and someone saw my grin. When he smiled I realized I'd passed it on to him.
I thought about that smile then I realized its worth, a single smile like mine could travel around the earth.
So if you feel a smile begin don't leave it undetected. Let's start an epidemic quick, and get the world infected !
Keep this smile going, by passing it on to a friend. Because everyone needs a smile.

Going to the Vet
 A man takes his Rottweiler to the vet.
 " My dog's cross-eyed, is there anything you can do for him."
"Well", says the vet, "let's have a look at him?"
So the vet picked the dog up and examines his eyes, then checks his teeth.
Finally, the vet says, "I'm going to have to put him down."
The man says, " What ?,  because he's cross-eyed ?"
The vet says, " No, because he is really heavy."

My Arm
 A man went to visit his doctor.
"Doctor, my arm hurts. Can you check it out please?"
The doctor rolls up the man's sleeve and suddenly hears the arm whisper,
"Hey Doc, could you lend me twenty bucks? I'm desperate!"
The doctor says, "Aha!  I see the problem. Your arm is broke!"

Ain't Had No Fun
 The teacher wrote " Like I ain't had no fun in months " on the board and
then said, " Andrea, how should I correct that ?"
Andrea replied, " Maybe get a new boyfriend ?"

Dad's Trick
 The little boy greeted his grandmother with a hug and said,
"I'm so happy to see you, Grandma.
 Now maybe Daddy will do the trick he has been promising us."
The grandmother was curious.
"What trick is that, dear ?", she asked.
The little boy replied, "I heard Daddy tell Mommy
 that he would climb the walls if you came to visit us again !"

The Santa Gertrudis was the first breed developed in the Western Hemisphere.
Experimental crossbreeding of the Brahman and Shorthorn cattle
began on the Santa Gertrudis Division of the King Ranch.
In 1920 an outstanding bull calf called "Monkey" was produced. Highly potent,
he became the foundation sire of the Santa Gertrudis breed.
 Through many generations his descendant shave retained the rapid and efficient growth,
solid red color, hardiness, and good disposition for which "Monkey" was noted.
The United States Department of Agriculture recognized the Santa Gertrudis as a distinct breed in 1940.
