09-15-02: Dad and the Plow

Mischevious Dad

Mother and Dad had recently moved to town. To till the new garden Dad had bought a Push Plow to replace his horse-drawn tool always used in the country.

As he displayed his new equipment Mother asked, "What's gonna pull it?"

Dad explained, "I'll guide while you pull."

With much feeling, Mother replied, "I'll tell you right now, Blakely, you're not gonna plow me to death."

We still ue the phrase when someone makes a little too strong request of us.
