      I always know what you mean (even when you're asleep).

    Strange, I always considered YOU to be one of the professional question askers.

    You are too kind Shuhak.  I wish.  You'd think being Merlin I might be able to make that come true.  My magic is already inside YOU.  I gently nudge people reminding them they have their own. :) :)

    I have.  I think they stopped printing them in the 70s but they continued to circulate the ones already in the mix.  I haven't seen one in a long time.

    That is cool.  I've never seen one in real life. You are in the elite group who has!

    Ever hear this one about chicken wire, duct tape et al?

    TAKING THE BAIT

    An old farmer is sitting on his front porch watching the sunrise when he sees the neighbor's kid walk by carrying a spool of something metallic under his arm. "Hey boy, whatcha got there?"

    "Chicken wire."

    "What you gonna do with that?"

    "Gonna catch some chickens."

    "You damn fool! You can't catch chickens with chicken wire!" says the old man.

    The boy just laughs and keeps walking. That evening at sunset, the boy walks by, dragging behind him 30 chickens caught in the chicken wire.

    The next morning, the old man sees the boy walk by carrying a shiny roll of something. "Hey boy, whatcha got there?"

    "Duct tape."

    "What you gonna do with that?"

    "Gonna catch me some ducks."

    "You damn fool! You can't catch ducks with duct tape!"

    The boy just laughs and keeps walking. That evening at sunset, the boy walks by, trailing behind him 30 ducks caught in a long trail of duct tape.

    The next morning, the old man sees the boy walking by carrying a branch behind him. "Hey boy, whatcha got there?"

    "It's a pussy willow."

    "Wait up," says the old man. "I'll get my hat!"

    I have only seen one. I don't use cash...I barter with beaver pelts and moose hide.

    Way back then that might have been a good call.  Maybe 500 dollar bills were made from pelts.  If you were traveling with Danielle Boone, you two could have made a killing! This post was edited by Merlin at August 20, 2018 9:55 PM MDT

     I was thinking her name was  Sacagawea .   It's a good thing you are around Stu Bee.  I was never good at history.  I can tell you about Frank Lloyd  Wright.  I love this man :) :)
