Beartown's old Blacksmith, Levine Butler, realized he was soon going to quit working so hard. He picked out a strong young man to become his apprentice.
The old fellow was crabby and exacting. "Don't
ask me a lot of questions," he told the boy.
"Just do whatever I tell you to do."
One day the old blacksmith took an iron out of
the forge and laid it on the anvil. "Get the
hammer over there," he said. "When I nod my head, hit it real good and hard."
Now Beartown is looking for a new blacksmith....
TREE WARDEN REPORT
I got a call from a rocket
scientist in April. Certified NASA retired rocket scientist,
Maxwell Smart, several years ago had designed and built the gorgeous
solar home on Pine Valley Road. He
had carefully calculated the height of the trees and
angle of winter sun so to know how far to
clear from the house site. Now, just a few years later he is shocked
to discover that the TREES GREW!!!
Was there something I could DO about that?
and Cecil were a couple of drinking buddies who worked as airplane
mechanics for Beartown Airlines. Following the regular scheduled
festivities for the celebration of Beartown Airlines receiving national
recognition for PASSENGER SATISFACTION they wished to continue their
drinking but were out of beverages.
BANK'S PHONE NUMBER is UNLISTED
As usual, your community newspaper goes out of its way to service the community. Since the announcement of the start of DAYLIGHT SAVINGS (this new business did not advertise with us) our complete staff has worked hard to inform you of the location and phone number of this new financial institution without any success. So we now call on you, the residents of Beartown, for help in locating and identifying this new BANK.
Did somebody say Beartown?
