A tough old cowboy from South Texas counseled his grandson that if he
wanted to live a long life, the secret was to sprinkle a pinch of gun
powder on his oatmeal every morning.
The grandson did this religiously to the age of 103 when he died.
He left behind 14 children, 30 grandchildren, 45 great-grandchildren, 25
great-great-grandchildren, and a 15-foot crater where the crematorium
used to be.
