Enjoy! 2015-06-22-bw-beacham “Hey boys, how ’bout y’all makin’ yer Ma some wind chimes?”

He always hated it when his mother talked like that. After all she was a college graduate.

Now she was out in Santa Fe, New Mexico at some old style hippie ranch trying her best to fit in with the locals. She was claiming she was from small town in Mississippi when she was actually from Scarsdale.

He knew why is mother needed those wind chimes. It would serve as a notice to would be visitors that dinner was over and that she was getting ready to let go with a big wind of her own. “Look out boys, those wind chimes are about to start  a little dance of their own. Wee doggies that sure feels good. Everybody be better off getting up wind of me right now.” God he hated it when his mother talked like that.

    Sometimes you can take “trying to fit in with the locals” a bit too far 🙂
