Pecans in the Cemetary.........
On the outskirts of a small town, there was a big, old pecan tree just inside the cemetary fence. One day, two boys filled up a bucketful of nuts and sat down by the tree, out of sight, and began dividing the nuts.
'One for you, one for me, one for you, one for me, 'said one boy. Several of the nuts fell and rolled down to the fence.
Another boy came riding along the road on his bicycle. As he passed, he thought he heard voices from inside the cemetary. He slowed down to investigate. Sure enough, he heard, 'One for you, one for me, one for you, one for me....'
He just for sure knew what it was. He jumped back on his bike and rode off. Just around the bend he met an old man with a cane, hobbling along.
'Come here quick,' said the boy, 'you won't beleive what i heard! Satan and the Lord are down at the cemetary, dividing up the souls!
The old Man said, 'Beat it Kid, can't you see it's hard for me to walk' When the boy insisted though, the old man hobbled slowly to the cemetary.
Standing by the fence they heard, 'One for you, one for me, one for you, one for me.
The Old man whispered, 'Boy, you've been telling the truth. Let's see if we can see the Lord...?
Shaking with fear, they peered through the fence...yet were still unable to see anything. The old man and the boy gripped the wrought iron bars of the fence tighter and tighter as they tried to get a glimpse of the Lord.
As they heard, 'One for you, one for me. That's all. Now let's go get those nuts down by the fence and we'll be done....
They say the old man had the lead for a good half mile before the kid on the bike passed him.
