A little old lady was walking down the street dragging two large plastic garbage bags behind her. One of the bags was ripped and every once in a while a $20 fell out onto the sidewalk.
Noticing this, a policeman stopped her, and said, “Ma’am, there are $20 bills falling out of that bag.”
“Oh, really? Darn it!” said the little old lady. “I’d better go back and see if I can find them. Thanks for telling me officer.”
“Well, now, not so fast,” said the cop. “Where did you get all that money? You didn’t steal it, did you?”
“Oh, no, no”, said the old lady. “You see, my back yard is right next to a Golf course.”
“A lot of Golfers come and pee through a knot hole in my fence, right into my flower garden. It used to really tick me off. Kills the flowers, you know.”
“Then I thought, why not make the best of it?”
“So, now, I stand behind the fence by the knot hole, real quiet, with my hedge clippers. Every time some guy sticks his thing through my fence, I surprise him, grab hold of it and say, O.K., buddy! Give me $20, or off it comes.”
“Well, that seems only fair,” said the cop, laughing.
“OK. Good luck!”
“Oh, by the way, what’s in the other bag?”
“Not everybody pays.”

I wasn’t born then to remember the Ross sisters. The clip below was taken in 1944 for the movie ” Broadway Rhythm”. They were acrobatics and contortionists were also able to sing. Ross sisters from Texas were popular in the nineteen forties. They definitely had gifts to show the public not like the current so-called celebrities who are raking money for not having anything to rave about.
If they would have lived in this century Ross sisters would have been household names.
