Fifty Bucks is Fifty Bucks

Buddy and his wife Edna went to the state fair every year,
And every year Buddy would say,
'Edna,I'd like to ride in that helicopter.'
Edna always replied,
'I know Buddy, but that helicopter ride is fifty bucks,
And fifty bucks is fifty bucks'

One year Buddy and Edna went to the fair, and Buddy said,
'Edna, I'm 85 years old...
If I don't ride that helicopter, I might never get another chance....'
To this, Edna replied,
"Buddy that helicopter ride is fifty bucks, and fifty bucks is fifty bucks.''

The pilot overheard the couple and said,
'Folks I'll make you a deal. I'll take the both of you for a ride. If you can stay quiet for
the entire ride and don't say a word I won't charge you a penny!
But if you say one word it's fifty dollars.'

Buddy and Edna agreed and up they went.
The pilot did all kinds of fancy maneuvers, but not a word was heard.

He did his daredevil tricks over and over again,
But still not a word.

When they landed, the pilot turned to Buddy and said,
'By golly, I did everything I could to get you to yell out, but you didn't.
I'm impressed!'

Buddy replied,
'Well, to tell you the truth,
I almost said something when Edna fell out,
But you know,

"Fifty bucks is fifty bucks!'

Fifty Bucks!!! LOL, back before Uncle Sam intervened I was flying, taking impromptu lessons and having a ball with two buddies, playing the red baron in the sagebrush with a Cessna 150 being chased by a Cessna 170, I preferred the dragger. One day I got a wild hair, drove out to the farm and got my mother in law to go up with us, we flew all over the valley then flew out to the farm, there was my father in law plowing in the south 40, long neat rows, we buzzed him, he jumped off the moving tractor, jumping up and down shaking his fist at us then went running to get back on the tractor, jeeze what crooked row that was. Once back home he was pissed, what a story he told about some madman trying to kill him. We never let on it was us but it was worth every second, she never told him either. I pulled a similar stunt with the old gal, I set up a chopper flight then we showed up 'for lunch' at the 'restaurant', she was saying oh no, oh no, until we took off then she joined us in the thrill of flight, what a sport.
