The geezer doesn’t spend much time reading a weekly electronic edition of my hometown newspaper. Members of my immediate family are long gone. Even my interest in the obituaries is declining as fewer and fewer familiar names show up.
A visit to the want ad section is extremely rare. Yet something drew my eye there in the April 17 edition of the Tomahawk Leader. I found this entry:
WANTED: Double-barrel shotgun. Also: A girlfriend. Each need not be real pretty but proper functioning is important (Need not be a single transaction). 715-612-1680.
At least one north woods denizen hasn’t lost the somewhat quirky sense of humor long associated with the area. If you’ve got the goods and want to make a deal with him, call the number.
