|Government surveyors came to Ole’s farm in the fall and asked if they could do some surveying. Ole agreed and Lena even served them a nice meal at noon time.
The next spring, the two surveyors stopped by and told Ole, "Because you were so kind to us, we wanted to give you this bad news in person instead of by letter".
Ole replied, "What’s the bad news?
The surveyors stated, "Well, after our work we discovered your farm is not in Kentucky, but is actually in Tennessee!"
Ole looked at Lena and said," That’s the best news I have heard in a long time, why I just told Lena this morning, I don’t think I can take another winter in Kentucky."
