There was a family who decided to move to the country.

They bought a ranch and made plans to raise cattle.

They completed the relocation process and set about building their ranch, and about six months later some friends came to see them.

They wanted to see the ranch and the cattle.

The friend said to the owner of the ranch, "What do you call the ranch?"

The owner of the ranch said, "I wanted to call it the ‘Flying W.’ My wife wanted to name it the ‘Suzie Q.’ My oldest son wanted to call it the ‘Bar J.’ And my youngest son wanted to call it the ‘Lazy Y.’

So the friend asked, "Well, what did you call it?"

"Well, we call it ‘The Flying W, Suzie Q, Bar J, Lazy Y Ranch,’" he said.

"OK," the friend said, "but where are the cattle?"

The owner replied, "Well, we don’t have any. None of them survived the branding."
