Puddle Fishing January 2, 2016

220px-OldBeggar1It was raining hard and a big puddle had formed in front of the little Irish pub.  An old man sat beside the puddle holding a stick with a string on the end and jiggled it up and down in the water.

A curious gentleman asked what he was doing.

“Puddle fishing,” replied the old man.

“Poor old fool,” thought the gentleman, so he invited the old man to have a drink in the pub.

Feeling he should start some conversation while they were sipping their pints, the gentleman asked :

“And how many have you caught today?”

“You’re the seventh.”

Aah . . . that’s better!

Haha – a good one! No puddle fishing here…this morning it looked like we’d get puddles, but it’s all blue skies now.

nrhatch - January 2, 2016

We had rain . . . and now gray skies with sun peaking out. 😎

Good one. I saw this one coming for a change.

Yay! I like to “see ’em coming” . . . but I tend to laugh louder when the punch line catches me unawares. It’s a win either way. :mrgreen:

Happy New Year, Nicki.

Give a man a fish . . . and he eats for a day.
Teach a man to fish for drinks . . . and he imbibes for life!
