Pa Sleeps Naked
« on: October 24, 2009, 04:17:46 PM »
'Late again,' the third-grade teacher said to little Sammy.

'It ain't my fault this time, Miss Crabtree. You can blame this'un on
my Daddy. The reason I'm three hours late is my Daddy sleeps naked!'

Now, Miss Crabtree had taught grammar school for thirty-some-odd
years.  Despite her mounting fears, she asked little Sammy what he meant by
that.

Full of grins and mischief, and in the flower of his youth, little
Sammy and trouble were old friends, but he always told her the truth.

'You see, Miss Crabtree, out at the ranch we got this here low down
coyote. The last few nights, he done ate six hens and killed Ma's best
milk goat. Last night, when Daddy heard a noise out in the chicken pen,
he grabbed his shot gun and said to Ma, 'That coyote's back again, I'm
a gonna git him!''

'Stay back, he whispered to all us kids!'

'He was naked as a jaybird, no boots, no pants, no shirt! To the hen
house he crawled, just like an Injun on the snoop. Then, he stuck that
double barreled 12 gauge shot gun through the window of the coop.'

'As he stared into the darkness, with coyotes on his mind, our old
hound dog, Zeke, had done woke up and comes sneaking' up behind Daddy.
Then, as we all looked on, plumb helpless, old Zeke stuck his cold nose
in Daddy's crack and both barrels of his shotgun went off!'

'Miss Crabtree, we all been cleanin' chickens since three o'clock
this mornin'!'
