Telephone problems...

Telephone Problems

An Indiana 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 pet dog always moaned right before
the phone rang. The telephone repairman proceeded to the scene,
curious to see this psychic dog or senile elderly lady.

He climbed a nearby 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 loudly 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 via 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 phone number was called.

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

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.

Build memories, take a kid out doors and teach them about nature by interacting with it, hunting and fishing.
