: Funny story, funny to me anyway. I saw an
: amateur handler put his dog in front of him
: on his horse and carry the dog across a
: fairly large water hazard, Doc Flanagan was
: judging and he told the handler to pick his
: dog up. "Why," the handler asked
: and Doc explained. The handler's response
: was, "Dave Grubb does that all the
: time." Doc's reply was, "You
: ain't Dave Grubb!" as he wheeled his
: horse and rode away.
: Doc's "response" was couched in my
: language. I'm pretty sure that Doc said,
: "You're not Dave Grubb". For some
: unknown reason I've always liked using
: "ain't". And I've never yet
: fallen into that bucket of paint!
: You know the old rhyme, taught to me over 75
: years ago - "There was a little boy who
: said ain't, who fell in a bucket of paint.
: When he got out he said with a shout, isn't
: and aren't NOT ain't!" Harry
