I couldn't have held another bite."

- Hello, Ken.

- Howdy, Ken.

Well, I hope I'm not

disturbing you boys.

Oh, no. Just looking over the stuff

you wrote for next week's column.

- Mmm. There's plenty of truth in this one too, Ken.

- What?

At 20, we don't care

what the world thinks of us.

At 30, we worry about

what it thinks of us.

At 40, we're sure

it doesn't think of us."

That's hittin'the nail on the head.

You boys oughta be good critics. I hope

the payin' subscribers like it that well.

He means you!

Say, here's one.

Let's see if this hits

the nail on the head.

You don't have to send

the sheets to the laundry."

Come on.

With all that fur on your face...

you're beginning to look

like a badger anyhow.

Yeah. Them concrete houses

are gonna give you-

- Hello, Kenesaw.

- Well!

If It aint Tom Cotton. I aint seen ya

since the cows come home.

Well, I thought I'd bring in my subscription,

Kenesaw, while I was able.

You ain't thinkin'

about dyin' again, are you?

Well, none of us knows

when the call's comin'.

I'm hopin' to be prepared.

That's all.

Well, you come to the wrong fella

to talk about dying.
