Vhy didn't you yust give me some money?'. Ole replied, 'Vell, I didn't vant to send you out dere vit any money ven I vasn't sure how tick the ice vas.'

I was suspecting he didn't send her with money because he didn't expect her to come back or such! LOL

Thanks for a blast from the past, Linda! I lived in Grand Forks, North Dakota for 5 years, and that was where I was first introduced to Ole and Lena jokes. I've never heard them anywhere else, until here! :)

LOL - that's great. I'll have to share the story with my friend, Tom. He's from North Dakota and loves these stories.

Happy New year, my friend. Hope you have a terrific 2009!
