    a woman that doesn't shop!!

    I was walking down the street when I was accosted by a particularly dirty
    and shabby-looking homeless woman who asked me for a couple of dollars for
    dinner.*
    *
    I took out my wallet, got out ten dollars and asked, 'If I give you this
    money, will you buy wine with it instead of dinner?'*
    *

    'No, I had to stop drinking years ago', the homeless woman told me.

    'Will you use it to go shopping instead of buying food?' I asked.

    'No, I don't waste time shopping,' the homeless woman said. 'I need to spend
    all my time trying to stay alive.'

    'Will you spend this on a beauty salon instead of food?' I asked.*
    *
    'Are you NUTS!' replied the homeless woman. I haven't had my hair done in 20
    years!'

    'Well, I said, 'I'm not going to give you the money. Instead, I'm going to
    take you out for dinner with my husband and me tonight.'

    The homeless Woman was shocked. 'Won't your husband be furious with you for
    doing that? I know I'm dirty, and I probably smell pretty disgusting.'

    I said, 'That's okay. It's important for him to see what a woman looks like
    after she has given up shopping, hair appointments, and wine.'**

    I just forwarded that to my wife at work! I'm sure she and her coworkers will appreciate it!

    Then my wife is a miracle...she does all three of those things and still looks like a homeless woman!
    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    Hopefully she hasn't seen that comment or you'd be dead by now.
    Best regards,
