"Thanks," I say and start to cloimb into the truck.
When Ed asks, "Ever tell you about how my Grampa Drollinger ownwed the first automobile in WeenerMan Township??"
"Actually, I’ve only heaqrd thaqt one a couple times," I admit.
"Good," Ed rubs his hands, "Well, Grandad owned the first auto-vehicle in the Township, it was electric, one of those electro-jobs they had out back then, said it was safer than the steam and more reliable than the gas-powered models available just then, but there was only one catch to it, the batteries would run out of juice before he could make it back from going to Burdock."
Drollinger pauses, "Go on," I tell him, it’s been awhile since I had heard it.
