The Bottle of Wine and the Old Navajo Indian Woman
Contributed by Bill Mack, The Midnight Cowboy, The Texas Hall of Fame WBAP Fort Worth country music all night DJ which you can hear again on Willies Place on Sirius Satellite Radio.
The weary traveling saleslady was on the return leg of her weary lonely trip across the Arizona Desert returning to the West Texas town of Waco. The land was bare, dusty, hot, and unforgiving. Up ahead she spotted a speck on the horizon. As she got closer she noticed it was an old ancient Navajo Indian woman sitting cross legged on the side of the road. The saleslady noticed the temperature on the dashboard. It was 103 in the shade, but there was not any shade. She felt sorry for the old Navajo woman and stopped the car beside her.
The old Navajo woman smiled, nodded, opened the passenger door and sat down without saying a single word. She looked intensely out the window at the desert floor. Then she looked closely at everything inside the car. She noticed a brown paper bag on the seat between her and the driver. "What is in the brown paper bag?" she asked.
The saleslady smiled and replied, "It is a bottle of wine. I got it for my husband."
The 911 CALL
Desperately the elderly woman dialed 911 on her cell phone.
"This is 911, do you wish to report an emergency?"
"Someone broke into my car here at Wal-mart. They have stolen my steering wheel, stereo, and my air conditioner."
Four minutes later the police radio announces, "Never mind- she was sitting in the back seat again."
