This happen many years back.' My mom and I had been selling comb honey from Dad's apiary,' We finished and sat down on a bench where Dad was supposed to pick us up. A pleasant fellow sat down beside my mom,. They struck up a conversation my mom talking about honey and selling it.The man started talking ab'out how he sold canned beef.My mom misunderstood and thought he too was selling honey,. I was getting more and more amused \as each one thought the other was talking' about beef and honey. Finally my mom ' told about selling honey in 60 pound cans. ' The man sat up,''How can you sell beef in such large containers Ma'am?" My mom laughed." I was talking about honey,I think we got each other mixed up." My dad had just pulled up so we got in and started home from Belle Fourche to our' farm outside Newell South Dakota One original post and graphic by P Hatley copyrighted 2016

The language barrier is fun at times. When it isn't frustrating.
