John went to visit his 90 year old grandfather in a very secluded, rural area
of Alaska .

After spending a great evening chatting the night away, John's grandfather
prepared breakfast of bacon, eggs and toast.

However, John noticed a film like substance on his plate, and questioned his
grandfather asking, 'Are these plates clean?'

His grandfather replied, 'They're as clean as cold water can get em.

Just you go ahead and finish your meal, Sonny!' For lunch the old man made

Again, John was concerned about the plates as his appeared to have
tiny specks around the edge that looked like dried egg and asked,

'Are you sure these plates are clean?'

Without looking up the old man said,

'I told you before, Sonny, those dishes are as clean as cold water can get 'em.
I don't want to hear another word about it!'

Later that afternoon, John was on his way to a nearby town and as he was
leaving, his grandfather's dog started to growl, and wouldn't let him pass.

John yelled 'Grandfather, your dog won't let me get to my car'.
