Cliff's day yesterday

Cliff's brother, Donald, came with his buddy yesterday and brought an old eyesore of an Oliver tractor.  Cliff is to enjoy the tractor for as long as he wants (he's always had a penchant for Olivers), see if he can get a few bugs worked out of it, and then try to sell it; anything it brings over $2,500 is his.  ::sighing::

Since Don was going to be here anyway, and does a lot of transmission work, Cliff's brother, Phil, came over and had him re-work the transmission for his pickup.

I fixed them cheeseburgers for lunch, and had some great fun:  I made one burger for everybody and was left with enough ground beef to make a tiny patty, about 1 1/2 inches across.  Everybody realizes how closely I monitor Cliff's food intake; so when they all gathered at the table, I put that tiny burger on Cliff's plate, saying, "Here's yours, Cliff."

Then I put the platter with the regular burgers in the middle of the table and told them to dig in.

I kid you not, Donald's mouth was agape, and when he finally found some words, he said, "Are you serious?"

I had warned Cliff in advance what I was going to do.

I couldn't keep up the farce long because I was laughing so hard.

It does sound like they feel sorry for Cliff and his diet, but I bet they don't look as slim and trim as Cliff does.  It 's always good to have some laughs !  'On Ya' - ma
