A fishy story....
Good morning you all! I think most of you have already heard of my friend Narda, who always sends me good jokes, which I have often shared here. She has been on holiday in Florida for some weeks, and today I wanted to share some photos she sent me. And although it is April 1st, this is a true story.
The first one shows Narda being *surprised* by a Pelican....
The other three show her fishing, and holding a fish she pulled out. Here's what she wrote about it;
Look what I caught! A 75 lb Goliath Grouper. Bout kicked my butt but I got him in all by my self!
What a battle! Talk about an adrenalin rush!!!!!!! It's considered one of the best fish to eat but I had to throw it back. It's illegal to keep Giant Grouper because they are considered endangered. Everyone says they should be removed from the list because they have recovered and are eating everything else on the reefs. Even if it had been a Red, Gray or Gag Grouper we would have had to throw it back, the season for Grouper other than Goliath doesn't come in until Apr 1st. Last year we came in Jan & Feb and it came in March 1st. So we booked Feb & March this year and the stupid people changed it to Apr. Can't win for losing!!! Sure is a fishing trip I will remember!!!!
Now, Narda is a small lady, and I do not know how she managed to pull that monster fish out of the water - great work! And before I close, another joke from her:
Two young businessmen in Florida were sitting down for a break in their soon-to-be new store in the shopping mall. As yet, the store wasn'tready, with only a few shelves and display racks set up.
One said to the other, "I'll bet that any minute now some old person is
going to walk by, put his face to the window, and ask what we're selling."
Sure enough, just a moment later, a curious senior gentleman walked up to
the window, looked around intensely and rapped on the glass. Then in a
loud voice asked, "What are you sellin' here?"
One of the men replied sarcastically, "We're selling ass-holes."
Without skipping a beat, the old timer said, "You must be doing well. Only
Seniors -- don't mess with them. They didn't get old by being stupid.
Have a great Sunday you all, take care, and thanks for visiting!
