Every now and then a little nugget of Joy comes your way that simply has to be shown to others, and so it is I offer you, like, I see others before me, the following nugget that dropped into my email box yesterday. The sender is an….well you never tell a ladies age, but rest assured that she has sworn, quite rightly, to do her own thing and embrace her longevity disgracefully
So all I can say is enjoy the video’s and the passage below.
What am I going to do when I grow old….Well, what do you think
Get another beer… sit on the porch… and, grabbing my trusty megaphone, yell at every passer by about the youth of today, and just how good things were when “I were a boy”!
Anyone fancy joining me, anyone for a beer!
On the first day, God created the dog and said, “Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years.
The dog said, “That’s a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I’ll give you back the other ten?”
And God saw it was good.
On the second day, God created the monkey and said, “Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I’ll give you a twenty-year life span.”
The monkey said, “Monkey tricks for twenty years? That’s a pretty long time to perform How about I give you back ten like the dog did?”
And God, again saw it was good.
On the third day, God created the cow and said, “You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer’s family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years.”
The cow said, “That’s kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I’ll give back the other forty?”
And God agreed it was good.
On the fourth day, God created humans and said, “Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I’ll give you twenty years.”
But the human said, “Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?”
“Okay,” said God, “You asked for it.”
So that is why for our first twenty years, we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years, we slave in the sun to support our family. For the next ten years, we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren. And for the last ten years, we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.
Life has now been explained to you.
There is no need to thank me for this valuable information. I’m doing it as a public service.
If you are looking for me I will be on the front porch,
So long folks, speak to you soon, but why not join me in a little song!….Now…what are the words, and where are my false teeth, my hearing aid, and my glasses? At least I’ve still got my beer…CHEERS!
