“Who’ve you been going around with lately?”
Asked whenever the car you are driving/riding in goes in a circular path.

“What do you have on under there? Under where?”
Usually the youngest fall for this ploy which is just a way to cause belly laughs I think.

“Have I told you the story of Squaw Berry Shortcut? (Reminder: Squaw bury Short Cut.)”
Joke story told whenever strawberry shortcake is served for dessert.

“222 Spring Prairie”
Dad’s State Patrol call number. We’d hear him say this when signing in and out in the squad car.

“It’s the first time I sat down all day.”
Said to indicate a very busy day.

“Let’s go hang out at the jail.”
No kidding, if we didn’t have anything in particular to do, Dad would take us over to hang out at the police station.

“I used to go to school with a girl/boy named.”
See “Names” post.

“Are you up for all day?”
Question asked upon rising in the morning.

“Moehrke residence, Ralph the butler speaking.”
Dad like to answer calls this way.

Word combinations that amuse Dad:
Tight slacks
Pretty ugly
Soft rock
Terribly pleased
Almost exactly
Butt head
Anarchy rules
Good grief
