Do I have any green houses For Sale?

I got this call today, and right away I knew it

was a prank, but, I played along.


I responded...I am sorry I do not, but I do have a couple that YOU could repaint green.


"I don't like to paint." was the response.

That is Ok, YOU can hire it done, so when should we look?




I wonder where my caller went.


A good use of green for today

Hi William -- some people obviously have way too much time on their hands. Yikes!

    Those are the people who call the Tobacco store and ask, "Do you have Prince Albert in the can?"  When the clerk says, "Yes", the prankster says "Well, let him out!"

We used to make calls like that when we were kids.  It was easier then as there was no caller ID

Sounds more like an April Fools joke.  Didn't know they made those calls on St. Pat's Day.

It sounds like some one had been drinking too many green ones, before picking up the phone to dial.

A large number of the Congress will be looking for a new day in November.

Good luck and success.

Good morning William.  I'm with you on the recycle project.  I've told my wife I should run just once.  Think about it, a retirement check free medical and all the other perks...  The best part, its all paid by the poor schmucks  who pays their taxes.

WEll, you rolled with the punches in that one.  No use getting upset, I wish I had thought of that!
