A motorist driving by a Texas ranch hit and
killed a calf that was crossing the road. The
driver went to the owner of the calf and
explained what had happened. He then
asked what the animal was worth.
"Oh, about $200 today," said the Cowboy.
"But in six years it would have been worth
$900. So $900 is what I'm out."
The motorist sat down and wrote out a check
and handed it to the Cowboy.
"Here," he said, "is the check for $900. It's
postdated six years from now."
