I have a riddle for you:

     If a country girl should come to town with one leg up and one leg down, what would you do about the matter to keep the folks from laughing at her?

Anyone?????


My grandfather, Tom Ed, told me this riddle when I was a little girl.  I was the only one that knew the answer and he swore me to secrecy for years.  Finally, just a few years ago, he let me tell the answer.  Some of you may know it, but it kept my family guessing for a LONG time!

The answer (thanks, by the way) is:
take the girl off her bicycle. Stacy remembered the riddle too!

I thought about keeping it to myself since it was something so special between me and my grandfather, but it's too good, he would have wanted me to share it!
