It was autumn, and the native on the remote reservation asked
their new Chief if the winter was going to be cold or mild.

Since he was an native Chief in a modern society, he had never
been taught the old secrets, and when he looked at the sky, he
couldn't tell what the heck the weather was going to be.

Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he replied to his tribe
that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members
of the village should collect wood so they would be prepared for
it.

But also being a practical leader, after several days he got an
idea.

He went to the phone booth, called the National Weather Service
and asked, "Is the coming winter going to be cold?"

"It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold indeed,"
the Meteorologist at the weather service responded.

So the Chief went back to his people and told them to collect
even more wood in order to be prepared.

One week later he called the National Weather Service again. "Is
it going to be a very cold winter?" he asked.

"Yes," the man at National Weather Service again replied, "it's
going to be a very cold winter."

The Chief again went back to his people and ordered them to
collect every scrap of wood they could find.

Two weeks later he called the National Weather Service again.

"Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very
cold?"

"Absolutely," the man replied. "It looks like it's going to be
one of the coldest winters ever."

"How can you be so sure?" the Chief asked.

The weatherman replied, "The natives are collecting firewood
like crazy."

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant. Mary Ann LaPensee
