    A man owned a small farm in the Annapolis valley. The Labour Board claimed he was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent to interview him.
    "You must give me a list pf your employees and tell me how much you pay them".
    "Alright" said the farmer. "I have a hired man who's been with me for three years. I pay him $600 a week, plus room and board. I have a cook, she's been here six months. She gets $500 a week plus room and board".
    "Anybody else?" asked the agent as he scribbled on a note pad.
    "Yeah" the farmer said. "This guy is none too bright. Works about eighteen hours a day. I pay him ten dollars a week and give him chewing tobacco."
    "AHA!" the agent roared. "I want to talk to that man!"
    "Speaking" said the farmer.

    I can relate to the farmer (without the chewing tobacco),my wife gives me room and board, but a whole $10.00 a week would be out of the question.:roll: I only tolerate this job because she's a good cook. :lol: Jack
