An old coondog man sent this to me this morning.  It think it is cute downhome humor and I’ll share it with you. My hound customers should watch for some really cool specials on my  Shiny new website.  Tri-tronics Razor LED lights are on special at an unheard of $50 OFF! And I got lots more hound and beagle stuff on coming Closeout specials! If you don’t get the weekly email with these closeouts and specials you need to sign up. It’s easy to sign up on the new website or just call 800-6625202 and someone will be glad to hook you up. Have a good weekend. Make sure to spend some time with your dogs.….” Buck”


Lawrence, Kansas, December 12, 2008
A Kansas farm wife called the local phone company to report her telephone failed to ring when her friends called – and that on the few occasions, when it did ring, her dog always moaned right before the phone rang.

The telephone repairman proceeded to the scene, curious to see this psychic dog or senile lady. He climbed a telephone pole, hooked in his test set, and dialed the subscriber’s house.

The phone didn’t ring right away, but then the dog moaned and the telephone began to ring.

Climbing down from the pole, the telephone repairman found:

1 . The dog was tied to the telephone system’s ground wire with a steel chain and collar.

2. The wire connection to the ground rod was loose.

3. The dog was receiving 90 volts of signaling current when the number was called.

4.. After a couple of jolts, the dog would start moaning and then urinate.

5. The wet ground would complete the circuit, thus causing the phone to ring.

Which demonstrates that some problems CAN be fixed by
pissing and moaning..

Thought you’d like to know.

    John, Darn funny story, but would like to piss and moan to you about your LCDays event. Have not heard of the date and was wondering if you plan to have it this year? Suzanne and I enjoyed ourselves so much sitting with you and even despite the rain it was a good and fun day. Hope you are still planning this educational weekend, even though I did not believe you were the owner and CEO of the place! Dixie really enjoys your products and so do we! Have a great day and see you in the fields! JRDawkins
