Canadian Friday smile

By Bob in Calgary ·
An American decided to write a book about famous churches around the world. For his first chapter he decided to write about American churches. So he bought a plane ticket and took a trip to Orlando, thinking that he would work his way across the country from South to North. On his first day he was inside a church taking photographs when he noticed a golden telephone mounted on the wall with a sign that read $10,000.00 per call. The American, being intrigued, asked a priest who was strolling by what the telephone was used for. The priest replied that it was a direct line to Heaven and that for $10,000.00 one could talk to God. The American thanked the priest and went along his way.

Next stop was in Atlanta. There, at a very large cathedral, he saw the same golden telephone with the same sign under it. He wondered if this was the same kind of telephone he saw in Orlando and asked a nearby nun what its purpose was? She told him that it was a direct line to Heaven and that for $10,000.00 he could talk to God.

"O.K. , thanks" said the American.

He then traveled to Indianapolis, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Boston New-York., N. Dakota, and Montana In every church he saw the same golden telephone with the same $10,000.00 per call sign under it. Upon leaving Montana, the American saw a sign for CANADA and decided to see if Canadians had the same golden telephone. He arrived in Calgary Alberta and again there was the same golden telephone, but this time the sign under it read 25 cents per call. The American was surprised and intrigued so he asked the priest about the sign, "Father, I've traveled all over America and I've seen this same golden telephone in many churches. I'm told that it is a direct line to Heaven, but in every state the price was $10,000.00 per call.
Why is it so cheap here.?"

The priest smiled and answered: "You're in Canada now son, it's a local call."

This here's hillbilly country

by gbrownlee In reply to Exotics

I cleared about 25% of my quarter, the rest is native bush. Lots, and I mean lots of wildlife. One of the reasons I chose this spot. This area, N.E. of Leslieville, is called the blueberry hills.

The 40 or so acres that I cleared is improved pasture and I use it and the open bush to make a few $ boarding horses. People are willing to pay a whole lot more to pasture their pet horses than any farmer would be willing to pay for pasturing his cattle.

I work part-time on the farm, as you know, there's always something that needs doing. I also am a self-employed repair tech. I started doing this as a career, just last February. I find it utterly amazing at just how clueless some clients are with regards to operating a pc properly.

Good idea about the Llama's, I think they are too cute. The price was right too!
