Bonnie  Howard  Luck WI  is the winner of the Quilt

 

 

 

A wife says to her husband, there's trouble with the tractor. It has water in the carburettor. Water in the carburettor? That's ridiculous replies the husband. " I tell you the tractor has water in the carburettor". She said again. You don't even know were the carburettor is, so how would you know if it has water in it, but I'll check it out. Where is the tractor? Her husband asked.

In the pond. She replies.
