An American farmer was on holiday in Wales.  He could not resist exploring the hill farms north of Aberystwyth.  At lunch time he dropped into a pub and fell into easy conversation with a Welsh farmer.

“How big is your spread?” asked the American.  

“Well look you, it’s about twenty acres,” the Welshman said.

“Only twenty acres?” the American responded.  “Back in Texas I can get up at sunrise, saddle my horse and ride all day; when I return at supper time, I’ll be lucky to cover half my farm.”

“Sure, sure,” said the Welshman.  “I once had a horse like that, but I sent him to the knackers’ yard.”

    Heard an Irish variation of that one many years ago, but cannot remember the punch line. 😦

    I so enjoy the periodic jokes I don’t understand. I didn’t get this one…and I think it’s a simple translation problem. I don’tknow the word “knackers.” I’ll look it up later! Ha! We speak a different English sometimes, don’t we? I find that kind of fun! Debra


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
