How do you know if your fence is goat tight? Throw a bucket of water at it. If a drop slips through then it ain’t goat tight.
That was the joke I overheard while waiting to see Urinetown at the Fort Robinson Post Playhouse. It was told by one rancher to another. Both of them looked like they knew what they were talking about.
The only other conversational tidbit worth sharing was the man who approached me while I was pumping gas in O’Neill, NE. He told me that I must be happy to be anywhere other than Illinois. When I pushed back a bit he laughed and handed me a business card. Only instead of listing a business it showed a picture of a rabbit in distress saying “What a harebrained idea.” I laughed. No one does humor like Nebraska.
