I met one of my nephews yesterday for lunch. He was visiting the outer banks and kitty hawk, down from Wisconsin. We met 1/2 way which required i skirt the SE corner of Raleigh.
Raleigh has become a boom town and i avoid it but yesterday was not bad.
As i was leaving the metro area i pulled off for gas and right there next to the convenience store was the Kioti plant. I heard they had a plant in Raleigh but now i can confirm that. Wasn't nearly as big as i would have expected unless i didn't see it all.
A magician was working on a cruise ship in the Caribbean. The audience would be different each week, so the magician allowed himself to do the same tricks over and over again. There was only one problem: The captain’s parrot saw the shows each week and began to understand how the magician did every trick. Once he understood he started shouting in the middle of the show:
“Look, it’s not the same hat.”
“Look, he is hiding the flowers under the table.”
“Hey, why are all the cards the Ace of Spades?”
The magician was furious but couldn’t do anything; it was, after all, the captain’s parrot.
One day the ship had an accident and sank. The magician found himself floating on a piece of wood in the middle of the ocean with the parrot, of course.
They stared at each other with hate, but did not utter a word. This went on for a day and another and another. After a week the parrot said: “OK, I give up. Where’s the boat?”
