Now let me tell ya a story about when I was just a pup. One hot summer’s day I was swimmin’ with my cousins Little Lester and Big Billy Bob.
We was jumpin’in the water and feelin’ good. Then along comes this catfish ‘bout the size of a house. Well, alright, maybe a little smaller than that. Little Lester starts to thinkin’ it’s goin’ to eat him sure ’nough. Man, you shoulda seen him! He got outta the water fast as lightning and climbed up a tree.
Big Billy Bob and I just laughed and laughed. To this day, Lester won’t go near that place. Hello, everyone, I am Buford’s teacher, Jane, from British. Perhaps you didn’t quite understand everything Buford said. He said that he lives in Houston, a city in Texas.
He wants everyone to know that he doesn’t believe Texas is a state in USA but a different country. Buford says that he would like to tell you a story about him when he was a small child. One hot summer’s day he was swimmin with Big Billy Bob and Lester.
