George: Well, Gracie, any news from home?
Gracie: Yes. I got a letter from my little niece, Jean.
George: What did she say?
Gracie: She didn’t say anything. She didn’t phone. It was a letter, and she wrote it.
George: I mean what did she write?
Gracie: It’s Spring again, and my family is putting on a backyard circus, just like we did when I was a kid.
George: Every Spring you kids used to put on your own circus?
Gracie: Yes. Of course, admission was free, but that was only for the people who could afford it.
