Fred was driving home from one of his business trips, in Northern
Arizona, when he saw an elderly Navajo man walking on the side of
the road.

As the trip was a long and quiet one, he stopped the car and asked
the Navajo man if he would like a ride.

With a silent nod of thanks, the Indian got into the car.

Resuming the journey, Fred tried - in vain - to make a bit of small
talk with the Navajo man.  The old man just sat silently, looking
intently at everything he saw, studying every little detail, until
he noticed a brown bag on the seat next to Fred.

"What in bag?"- asked the old man.

Fred looked down at the brown bag and said: -"It's a bottle of wine.
 I got it for my wife."

The Navajo man was silent for another moment or two.  Then, speaking
with the quiet wisdom of an elder, he said: - "Good trade!"
Best wishes,

Duncan
