    When I was little I remember believing in the tall tales I heard. My father had little patience with these tales, but if I got the chases I would listen in wonder. We had an old Mexican man that would tell me stories on his lunch breaks. Of course he was a farmer so his tales were about farming. These Pixtures remind me of his tall tales.

    That reminds me of my grandfather's tales. I loved them all but looking back maybe some werent so true. He was a little mischief maker.

    @Ina I. Wonder, these are great! You're reminding me of my father trying to tell me about tomatoes growing so big near a place called The Big Rock Candy Mountain it took a flat car on a train to transport one. He drew me a picture of it on the flat car! I was enthralled until my mother told him to "stop that".

    Your name is Chuck Jones. When I heard his tale of a pig and a cat...being abducted by aliens, from Jupiter....back in 1955, my reaction was: "Jumpin' Jupiter"!:eek:;):rolleyes:

    Your name is "Finney", or perhaps moreso, Tim Burton, director of Batman, Edward Scissorhands, and this one…"Big Fish":

    :D:D:D….That was more like standup comedy
    than what I've always imagined of Toastmasters.
    But a Tall Tale for sure!
