LW: Hi. I was wondering if you could tell me the road conditions between Fairview and Delta?
POP (person on phone): Who is this?
LW: Ummm ...well, I'm Lloyd Westenskow
POP: So whatcha callin' me for?
LW: Well, I didn't know who else to call.
POP: So you just picked the first number you come to, huh?
LW: Who's this?
POP: This is (so-and-so) in Roy, Utah.
Lloyd apologized. Apparently it's easy to mis-dial a prefix in the wee hours of a winter morning.
Story #2: One day, Lloyd was leaving the IPP plant on a very windy day. As he pulled his car keys from his pocket, some paper currency blew out. He started chasing it, but the wind blew it all over the place, and eventually across a large field that was bordered by another road. A truck pulled up, and a man got out and picked up the money. Then Lloyd was angry and thought “That #$*& is going to steal my money!” He was wrong. The man waited for Lloyd to run approximately a quarter mile, then handed him his windblown ONE DOLLAR BILL! Embarrassed, Lloyd walked back to his car, unlocked the door and just before getting in the car, his hat blew off his head and out to the field. Too funny!
I was visiting with some young granddaughters one day. We were discussing boyfriends. I said that grandpa was my boyfriend. They said “He's not your boyfriend, he's your husband.” I said, “And he's my boyfriend.” They said “Who's Andy?" (And-he) LOL!!!
Seriously, if you don't have a dad like him? You should consider adopting some crazy ol' coot!
