For dog lovers who forward jokes
« on: May 11, 2005, 10:27:00 am »
This is quite lovely, so I am forwarding it to my friends. This
>> explains why we 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 h*ll."
>>
>> "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 ...
