The dad took his young daughter to the movies. He occupied a seat near the middle of the theater, while the young lady went down to the front row to sit with her friends. The news reel was showing about the raging forest fires in California, which evidently frightened the little girl as she came back to take a seat next to dad.
"What's the matter?" he asked. "Did the fire frighten you?"
"Oh, no," she replied, "the smoke was getting in my eyes."
A father came home from a long business trip to find his son riding a very fancy new 10 speed bike.
''Where did you get the money for the bike? It must have cost $300.''
''Easy, Dad,'' the boy replied. ''I earned it hiking.''
''Come on,'' the father said, ''tell me the truth?''
''That is the truth,'' the boy replied. ''Every night you were gone, Mr. Reynolds from the grocery store would come over to see Mom. He'd give me a $20 bill and tell me to take a hike!''
