    **Saw this one earlier and stole it (yep, I stole it)***

    On the outskirts of a small town, just inside the cemetery fence, stood a big pecan tree. One day, two boys filled up a bucketful of pecans. They climbed up into the tree, out of sight, and began dividing the nuts between them.

    "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me," said one boy. Several pecans dropped and rolled down toward the fence.

    Another boy came riding along the road on his bicycle. As he passed, he thought he heard voices from inside the cemetery. He slowed down to investigate. Sure enough, from up above, he heard, "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me." Scared, he jumped back on his bike and rode off.

    Just around the bend he met an old man with a cane, hobbling along. "Come here quick," said the boy. "You won't believe what I heard! Satan and the Lord are over at the old pecan tree at the cemetery dividing up the souls."

    The man said, "Beat it kid, can't you see it's hard for me to walk." When the boy insisted though, the man hobbled to the cemetery. Standing by the fence they heard, "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me..."

    The old man whispered, "Boy, you've been tellin' the truth. Let's see if we can see the Lord."

    Shaking with fear, they peered through the fence, yet were still unable to see anything. The old man and the boy gripped the wrought iron bars of the fence tighter and tighter as they tried to get a glimpse of the Lord.

    At last, they heard, "One for you, one for me. That's all. Now let's go get those nuts by the fence and we'll be done."

    They say the old man made it back to town a full 5 minutes ahead of the boy on the bike.
