On the same theme...
« on: January 14, 2017, 04:16:31 pm »
The banker saw his old friend Tom, an 80-year old rancher, in town.

Tom had lost his wife a year or so before and rumour had it that he
was marrying a ‘mail order’ bride.

Being a good friend, the banker asked Tom if the rumour was true.

Tom confirmed that it was so.

The banker then asked Tom the age of his new bride to be.

Tom proudly said, ‘She’ll be 21 in November.’

Now the banker, being the wise man that he was, could see that the
appetite of a young woman could not be satisfied by an 80-year- old
man.

Wanting his old friend’s remaining years to be happy the banker
tactfully suggested that Tom should consider getting a hired hand to
help him out on the ranch, knowing nature would take its own course.

Tom thought this was a good idea and said he would look for one that
afternoon.

About four months later, the banker ran into Tom in town again.

‘How’s the new wife?’, asked the banker.

Tom proudly said, ‘Good – she’s pregnant.’

The banker, happy that his sage advice had worked out, continued,
‘And how’s the hired hand?’

Without hesitating, Tom said, ‘She’s pregnant too.’

Moral of the story. Don’t you ever underestimate old guys.
Best wishes,

Duncan
