(F.F.F. Website Story)
My neighbor Jack was a Chief in the U.S. Navy. A lifer, Jack retired, lived on a small farm and passed away in his sleep.
Jack’s lawyer informed me that I inherited Jack’s beloved pet parrot, and left the bird on my porch.
While feeding the bird cashews, I asked if Polly wanted a cracker. The bird immediately responded with a string of profanities; including where I could stick the cracker.
Days later, three people promoting their religion arrived at my door. The elderly woman in the trio handed me a pamphlet and jokingly asked, “Does Polly want a cracker?”
