When Sis retired from Milliken at Monarch, she opened a little store next to the house. It was called “Jotem Down Store.” Anyway, one day this salesman came by and asked Sis if she needed any salt. Sis told the nice salesman, “Look, I have lots of salt, every shelf is full,” and told him to come look in the basement. When they looked in the basement of the store, every shelf was full of salt. The salesman told Sis, “Ma’am, you must sell lots of salt.” Sis said “No, I hardly ever sell any salt, but the salesman that sold me this says he sells a world of salt!”

Went to her cupboard,
To get her poor daughter a dress,
When she got there,
The cupboard was bare,
So is the daughter, I guess.
