The youngest child of seven was the only boy in the family. He often heard people saying how grown up his sisters were getting so he asked his mother when he was going to be a grown up.
She smiled, stooped down, and hugged him saying, "My sweet boy, one day you'll be a responsible adult but please know, since you're a guy you'll never actually grow up."
Farmers Brown & Jones had adjoining farms for years and didn't get along at all.
One night after supper, Farmer Brown knocked on Farmer Jones's door. When Farmer Jones answered the door, Farmer Brown said, "I know we don't talk often, but I wanted you to know that our mule just died today."
Farmer Jones replied, "I'm certainly sorry to hear that, but I am wondering why you came over here to tell me?"
"Because," Farmer Brown said, "you're always supposed to notify the next of kin."
