Do You Speak Canadian?

A Saskatchewan farmer and his wife, on their way back home in January, are at the airport in Florida awaiting their flight.

They are dressed in heavy boots, parka, scarf, mittens, etc, ready for the Canadian winter.

An older couple standing nearby is intrigued by their manner of dress.

The wife says to her husband: "Look at that couple. I wonder where they're from?"

He replies: "How would I know?"

She counters: "You could go and ask them."

He says: "I don't really care. You want to know, you go and ask them."

She decides to do just that and walks over to the couple and asks, "Excuse me. Looking at your dress, I wondered where you're from.

The farmer replies: "Saskatoon , Saskatchewan ".

The woman returns to her husband who asks: "So, where are they from?"

She replies: "I don't know. They don't speak English…".

My mom's a hooker ...

My mom gets a kick out of telling people she's "a hooker"!  She hooked this too cute sheep pin ... it's 3" high (not including the legs) and 2 1/2 " wide.
This one is a wall hanging ... I love the Colors!
