Toto, back in Kansas

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

A Kansas farm wife called the local phone company to report her telephone failed to ring when her friends called - and that on the few occasions, when it did ring, her dog always moaned right before the phone rang.

The telephone repairman proceeded to the scene, curious to see this psychic dog or senile lady. He climbed a telephone pole, hooked in his test set, and dialed the subscriber's house.

The phone didn't ring right away, but then the dog

moaned and the telephone began to ring.

Climbing down from the pole, the telephone repairman found:

1. The dog was tied to the telephone system's

ground wire with a steel chain and collar.

2. The wire connection to the ground rod was loose.

3. The dog was receiving 90 volts of signaling

current when the number was called.

4. After a couple of jolts, the dog would start moaning and then urinate.

5. The wet ground would complete the circuit , thus causing the phone to ring.

Which demonstrates that some problems CAN be fixed by pissing and moaning. Thought you'd like to know

Actually this Toto will be leaving this weekend for a b2b out of New Orleans on the Vision.  Pippin on the other hand will not be happy with us when we drop her off and the boarding kennel.

Enjoy!  And please come back and tell us how it went; I have been looking at sailing out of New Orleans (love that city,) and also wondering how the Vision is faring.  I have sailed Royal many times, but never the Vision.  Let us know!!

Hopefully, there won’t be any “pissing and moaning” from Pippin!😁 Enjoy your B2B and don’t be a stranger!🙂
