One for you, one for me. Oldie but goodie.
« on: September 01, 2019, 09:58:53 pm »
On the outskirts of a small town, there was a big, old pecan
tree just inside the cemetery fence.  One day, two boys filled up a
bucketful of nuts and sat down by the tree, out of sight, and began
dividing the nuts. "One for you, one for me.  One for you, one for me,"
said one boy.  Several dropped and rolled down toward the fence.

Another boy came riding along the road on his bicycle.  As he passed, he thought he heard voices from inside the cemetery. He slowed down to investigate.

Sure enough, he heard, "One for you, one for me.  One for you, one for
me." He just knew what it was.  He jumped back on his bike and rode
off.

Just around the bend he met an old man with a cane, hobbling along.
"Come here quick," said the boy, "you won't believe what I heard!  Satan
and the Lord are down at the cemetery dividing up the souls." The man
said, "Beat it kid, can't you see it's hard for me to walk."  When the
boy insisted though, the man hobbled to the cemetery.  Standing by the
fence they heard, "One for you, one for me.  One for you, one for me..."

The old man whispered, "Boy, you've been tellin' the truth. Let's see if
we can see the Lord."  Shaking with fear, they peered through the fence,
yet were still unable to see anything. The old man and the boy gripped
the wrought iron bars of the fence tighter and tighter as they tried to
get a glimpse of the Lord.

At last they heard, "One for you, one for me.
That's all. Now let's go get those nuts by the fence and we'll be done."
They say the old man made it back to town a full 5 minutes ahead  of the
boy on the bike.

HAHAHA!  :cheesy:
I come from under the hill, and under the hills and over the hills my paths led.  And through the air, I am she that walks unseen.
