Greetings from the Pring Ranch

We got an interesting phone call from a neighbor the other day. The neighbor was driving up the gravel county road and passed by a vehicle going very slowly with a driver that looked a little lost and out of place. Hoping to help out they slowed and rolled down their window.
"What's up? Can we help you?" they asked.
"Yea," came the reply. "Do you know the Prings?"
Our neighbors paused and then responded, "Can't say that we do. Are you sure they live around here?"
"Yep. You know where this road forks on up ahead. Well, you go to the right and then you come to the Pring place. It's real pretty. They have a tree farm."
To which our neighbors explained that it was The Ranch on Salmon Creek and it didn't belong to any Prings.
At this point the unknown driver got a little pesky and replied," Of course it is the Prings, they have a white board and I saw that they were welcoming home Happy."
Remembering what was really on the white board, they then asked the driver, "What do you think would happen if you put an S in front of the Pring?" At this point they all had a good laugh.

Perhaps we need to update our board a little more often, especially when letters get erased!

Now for another case of mistaken identity due to faulty reading you definitely need to check out this link to a really funny video. It is well worth the time. Really.


  1. Funny that you don't mention just who that lost visitor was....you're so nice to leave out their identity in such a possibly embarrassing moment!

  2. Cute story.

    Thanks for another sweet shout out.

    Love ya guys! :)

    Oh, and I'll tell Max about the turkey, turkey!

  3. Oh my gosh! That's hilarious!
    Wow...I really don't know what to say.

    But I do want to comment on the comment Mark left on my blog: I love you Mark! You're so great. I miss our "father-daughter" talks. You probably didn't even know we had those did ya?

  4. That made me giggle...people can be so dopey sometimes! At least the lost visitor laughed about it too!


We love to hear what you have to say. Keep your comments coming! Thanks.
