25 cents a question about Jeep




Paul lives right beside highway 268, right in downtown Ferguson, so he has to put up with a lot of traffic, and sometimes that traffic stops and he has visitors. I pass his place as I go home to Leatherwood every day, and one day I noticed he had put up a sign that said, "NOTICE, 25 cents a question about Jeep."

I stopped at Eller's Store to get gas and who should be there but the "mayor" of Ferguson, Randy Grose. I asked Randy about the sign, and he said "Yeah, I saw that sign, and I gave Paul 50 cents so I could ask him a couple of questions."

"So, what did he say about it?" says I.

"You'll have to go give him 50 cents and find out," says Randy.

So, the next day as I was coming home, I stopped to see Paul. He said "I had an old Jeep sitting out there and everybody that came by stopped and asked ‘Where'd you get it? What did you pay for it? Who'd you get it from? Does it run good? What would you take for it?' "I got tired of answering all those questions, so I put up the sign!"
