An elderly lady from a remote little town went to one of Philadelphia’s most fashionable suburbs to visit her niece and husband.
Nearby was a very well known golf course.
On the second afternoon of her visit, the elderly lady went for a stroll.
Upon her return, the young niece asked,
“Well, Auntie, did you enjoy yourself?”
“Oh, yes, indeed,” said Auntie, beaming.
“Before I had walked very far,” she continued,
“I came to some beautiful rolling fields. There seemed to be a number of people about, mostly men. Some of them kept shouting at me in a very eccentric manner, but I took no notice. There were four men who followed me for some time, uttering curious excited barking sounds. Naturally, I ignored them, too.”
“Oh, by the way,” she added, as she held out her hands,
“I found a number of these curious little round white balls, so I picked them all up and brought them home hoping you could explain what they’re for.”
