~ Anybody Kin Run A Ford ~
Louise at the wheel, Walter and Edna in the rear seat, - everything
going well - enjoyable time we three are having. Says Walter, “If I had
a100 bucks to blow I’d take you girls to the Sunset Club and show you a
gay time. Louise, confronted with a dream, sees many things. A moment
later, - Walter o top of the Ford (top being turned next the ground)
Louise and Edna with a fence rail apiece (thank goodness we didn’t have
more to drink) manage to raise the Ford sufficiently so that Walter can
dig his way out. “Now ‘ain’t’ you glad you are a poor man,” says Edna.
Walter, “Why”, Edna, “Well if you were a man with lots of ‘doe’ you
would own a Pierce Arrow, and think of the weight you would have had to
hold.” Another party heard from, - Louises, “I’m glad too, Walter that
you are a poor man, a Ford is heavy enough for me to raise. - Keep this
to yourself, - Louise and Edna each got a new dress, and Walter
eventually, will get a new side.
