Ole and Lena had a farm right on the border between Minnesota and Iowa.
One day a surveyor came to Ole and Lena's farm and, after he finished, the surveyor met with the couple and said, "I
surveyed your property, but I found a problem. All these years you thought your
farm was in Minnesota, but my results show your farm is in Iowa."
surveyor looked at Ole and Lena for a response, but instead of them being upset,
they looked pleased.
"I thought you would be upset," said the surveyor.
"Why do you both look so happy?"
"Well," said Ole, "I'm so glad now. I
didn't think we could stand another of those terrible Minnesota winters!"
