The doctor asked him how he was feeling, and the 86-year-old said ,'Things are great and I've never felt better.'I now have a 20 year-old bride who is pregnant with my child. 'So what do you think about that Doc ?'
The doctor considered his question for a minute and then began to tell a story.
I have an older friend , much like you, who is an avid hunter and never misses a season. One day he was setting off to go hunting. In a bit of a hurry, he accidentally picked up his walking cane instead of his gun. As he neared a lake , he came across a very large male beaver sitting at the water's edge.
He realized he'd left his gun at home and so he couldn't shoot the magnificent creature. Out of habit he raised his cane , aimed it at the animal as if it were his favourite hunting rifle and went 'bang, bang'. Miraculously , two shots rang out and the beaver fell over dead.
Now, what do you think of that ? asked the doctor.
The 86-year-old said , Logic would strongly suggest that somebody else pumped a couple of rounds into that beaver.
The doctor replied , My point exactly.
Thanks Misty, I'm happy you're happy. x
But wait there's more. Ron at Vent gave me the same award too! He said
"every time I visit your blog, I smile at the JOY that comes from you, in your wit and passion at which you blog. Thank you!"
Thank you Ron you're a pal. Head over to Ron's place if you want cheering up - he's the best.
And there's more..........
I got another one of these from CG (The Compulsive Worrier)
You make my day CG! - you should check out her photos!
Now you know I love you all, and you all cheer me up and make my day everytime you comment here so, as there doesn't seem to be a rule about how many people I can pass them on to (not that I abide by all the rules anyway), I'd like everyone who comments on this post to take the awards for themselves for cheering me up. It's up to you whether or not you pass them on.
