Iowa Coyote

My neighbor to the east called. He lives on the banks of the Missouri River. He said he saw an animal of some kind that was behaving strangely. It was on property we farm just south of him. This land is also along the river. He walked the quarter of a mile down to the animal and discovered that it was a coyote, that had one of his feet caught in an old trap. The trap was probably left there by someone who came on shore from the river. My neighbor related that it was easy to see that the coyote was from Iowa. I asked the obvious question. "How could you tell the coyote was from Iowa". He replied, "He had chewed off three of his legs, and was still caught".

I told that to my buddy from Iowa. He didn't get it.

Good one, Cliff. I guess every state has it's neighbor that it jokes about. In Indiana, they tell Kentucky jokes.

The Iowa, Minnesota jokes abound. No one usually even bothers with Nebraska.

Did you see they recently discovered a coyote in Central Park ?! Good one, Cliff.

My favorite Nebraska joke is that the N on their football helmets stands for knowledge. Haven't heard that one before, have you Cliff.

That is one DUMB coyote! But, he's tough!!

I hate to admit this, but I run slower than pond water too. My dad always told me that when I run, there's a lot of action going on, but no movement. Legs & arms going full force, but my bod just mosies along, in no hurry.

We had a whirlwind of a weekend. The 50th anniversary for my inlaws went wonderfully. It was a lot of work, and Courtney's media presentation she made for them made everyone at the dinner party cry. There were about 125 people who attended and we had to set up and then clean up afterwards. Lots of work! But worth it.
Courtney is doing well. She had sinus surgery yesterday. She is home with a drippy, bloody nose, and popping pain pills. She's a trooper, and will be fully recovered in about ten days.
I'm busy visiting all my blog friends, and I have some catching up to do. I will have a new post at my place on Wednesday.
