Daddy was A big lover of hamburgers especially Burger King whoppers. One time him and my husband took a trip to Memphis,Tn and on the way home they seen a Burger King that had burgers 10/ $10.00 Daddy got 10 to take home with him and before they got home Seen another store and he got 10 more, and a couple of days they were all gone.
My son Joey always loved to tease him by saying " Paw I stopped and got me and you a whopper but I ate yours before I got home. Joey would always eat something out of a bag of stuff that was bought for him apples, oranges, or a box of moon pies Joey would, would always get one and say "Paw I ate one"
IT seems that Daddy knew only one joke like story to tell because every time the family got together and start telling stories and jokes
daddy would tell the same one every time, and mama would tell him "J.D. you have told that enough," but daddy would keep on telling it like it was the first time he ever told it and laugh so hard he couldn't hardly talk .
