Retired, with a job....
I've often been asked,
'What do you old folks do now that you're retired?'
Well...I'm fortunate to have a few friends
who have chemical engineering backgrounds,
and one of the things we enjoy most is
turning beer, wine, rye, rum, and all other liquids into urine.
And, we're pretty damn good at it too!!'
When I retired, I could hardly wait to spend time enjoying my favorite pastime
-- bass fishing. I got my own little fishing boat and tried to get my wife to
join me, but she just never liked fishing. Finally, one day at the Bait & Tackle
Shop, I got to talking to Sam the shop owner who it turned out loves bass
fishing as much as I do. We quickly became fishing buddies.
As I said the wife doesn't care about
fishing. She not only refuses to join us she always complains that I spend too
much time fishing. A few weeks ago Sam and I had the best fishing trip ever. Not
only did I catch the most beautiful bass you've ever seen, only a few minutes
later Sam must have caught his twin brother! So I took a picture of Sam holding
up the two nice bass that we caught and showed the picture to the wife hoping
that maybe she'd get interested.
Instead she says she doesn't want me to
go fishing at all anymore! And she wants me to sell the boat! I think she just
doesn't like to see me enjoying myself.
What would you do? Tell the wife to
forget it and continue my hobby or quit fishing and sell the boat as she
P.S. Enclosed is a picture of Sam with
the two bass we caught
Get rid of that narrow minded wife.
That's a nice pair of bass!
