Default Why if forward jokes...

This explains why I forward jokes.




A man and his dog were walking along a road. The man was enjoying the scenery, when it suddenly occurred to him that he was dead.



He remembered dying, and that the dog walking beside him had been dead for years. He wondered where the road was leading them.



After a while, they came to a high, white stone wall along one side of the road. It looked like fine marble. At the top of a long hill, it was broken by a tall arch that glowed in the sunlight.


When he was standing before it he saw a magnificent gate in the arch that looked like mother-of-pearl, and the street that led to the gate looked like pure gold. He and the dog walked toward the gate, and as he got closer, he saw a man at a desk to one side.




When he was close enough, he called out, 'Excuse me, where are we?'



'This is Heaven, sir,' the man answered.




'Wow! Would you happen to have some water?' the man asked.



'Of course, sir. Come right in, and I'll have some ice water brought right up.'


The man gestured, and the gate began to open.





'Can my friend,' gesturing toward his dog, 'come in, too?' the traveler asked.





'I'm sorry, sir, but we don't accept pets.'







The man thought a moment and then turned back toward the road and continued the way he had been going with his dog.



After another long walk, and at the top of another long hill, he came to a dirt road leading through a farm gate that looked as if it had never been closed. There was no fence.



As he approached the gate, he saw a man inside, leaning against a tree and reading a book.


'Excuse me!' he called to the man. 'Do you have any water?'


'Yeah, sure, there's a pump over there, come on in.'




'How about my friend here?' the traveler gestured to the dog.



'There should be a bowl by the pump.'


They went through the gate, and sure enough, there was an old-fashioned hand pump with a bowl beside it.


The traveler filled the water bowl and took a long drink himself, then he gave some to the dog.



When they were full, he and the dog
walked back toward the man who was standing by the tree.

'What do you call this place?' the traveler asked.



'This is Heaven,' he answered.


'Well, that's confusing,' the traveler said. 'The man down the road said that was Heaven, too.'


'Oh, you mean the place with the gold street and pearly gates? Nope. That's hell.'


'Doesn't it make you mad for them to use your name like that?'


'No, we're just happy that they screen out the folks who would leave their best friends behind.'



Soooo ..


Sometimes, we wonder why friends keep forwarding jokes to us without writing a word.


Maybe this will explain.






When you are very busy, but still want to keep in touch, guess what you do? You forward jokes.



When you have nothing to say, but still want to keep contact, you forward jokes.



When you have something to say, but don't know what, and don't know how, you forward jokes.



Also to let you know that you are still remembered, you are still important, you are still loved, you are still cared for, guess what you get?






A forwarded joke.



So, next time if you get a joke, don't think that you've been sent just another forwarded joke, but that you've been thought of today and your friend on the other end of your computer wanted to send you a smile.



You are all welcome @ my water bowl anytime

Twilight Zone

The Hunt

Circa 1962


Synopsis:


Hyder Simpson lives with his wife and his hound Rip in the backwoods. Mrs. Simpson doesn't like having the dog indoors, but Rip saved Hyder's life once, and Hyder won't be parted from him. Mrs. Simpson has seen an omen and warns Hyder not to go hunting that night. When Rip dives into a pond after a raccoon, Hyder jumps in after him, but only the raccoon comes up out of the water. Next morning, Hyder and Rip wake up next to the pond. When they return home, Hyder finds that neither his wife, the preacher, nor the neighbors can hear him or see him—they seem to think that he and Rip are dead.

Walking along the road, he encounters a fence he doesn't recognize, and decides to follow it. Presently, both come to a gate. The gatekeeper explains that Simpson can enter the Elysian Fields, but Rip will have to stay outside, as dogs are not allowed in. Angrily, Simpson takes Rip and goes on down the "Eternity Road", where he meets an angel whose job is to bring them to Heaven, and who is looking specifically for "Hyder Simpson and his dog Rip." The angel explains that the gate was actually the entrance to Hell. Rip was not allowed in because, though a man can be fooled, Rip would have been able to smell the brimstone, and "even the Devil can't fool a dog!"

The angel also tells Hyder that there'll be a raccoon hunt in Heaven that night, "right after the square dance," and assures him that his wife, who will be coming shortly, won't have any trouble with the devil up the way.
