Hughie: Do you remember the time we were flyin' to Boston? Allan: You went to sleep. You don't remember noth? ing. It's me that got the fright of my life. Hughie: I remember going in the aerial plane. And you know, Allan, I hates being up there 25,000 feet in an airplane. Allan: I'd hate to be up 25,000 feet without an airplane. Hughie: But there were three seats. And I got on the end. And you got in the centre and there was a great big fellow there with about 4 feet across the shoulders, sittin' by the window. Sound asleep. Allan: Yes, and you don't know what happened • me and that big fellow. Hughie: What happened? Allan: Well, I got sick as usual on the airplane. And when I felt her coming • and I went for the window. And them windows doesn't open on airplanes. Hu? ghie: Doesn't they? Allan: No. And I lost it all over his good suit. Hughie: No. Allan: Him sound asleep. There was me wondering what am I gonna do when he wakes up. Hughie: How true. Allan: Well, I start figuring, boy. And as soon as he opened his eyes, I give him a dig in the ribs. Hu? ghie: Yeah. Allan: I said, "Are you feeling better now, Mister?" [Laughter and clapping.) Allan: And he was nice about it. Hughie: Yeah. Al? lan: I'm still here. Hughie: You're still here. ':0&i;%.. ?,';%:1 :,'''!' So we upped with the overalls and the old hats. You know, some old guys, I remember old fellows when I was growing up, you see them, and you see them twenty years later and they had the same old hat on pulled down over their ears, eh. And the suit they got married in, they got buried in it. 'Cause they never wore them. You know, go to a little party once in awhile, to a dance. Go to church on Sunday. But they al? ways put the overall on 'cause they had to hitch up the horse. So Lloyd said, "How about coming?" to me.
