Glad to see that you are still in fine form.

A small country in Africa relied on tourism for its livelihood. Tourists would come from all over the world for safaris and pay high fees to hunt. One day the king of the country died and his son assumed the throne. His first act was to outlaw hunting because of the brutality.
Soon, the once wealthy country was broke. Wild animals began to overrun the villages. After a while, the people had had enough and overthrew the king. They legalized hunting again, and prosperity returned. It was also the first time that a reign was canceled on account of the game.

Susie knew she had hit the jackpot when she found a four-leaf clover. Everything began going right for her. She found a great boyfriend. She got a great job. It hardly ever rained. Then one day, she left the clover in clothes that went to the dry cleaner. It was still there when she retrieved the clothes, but it had been flattened. Her luck immediately turned for the worse. She lost her boyfriend and the job. She was caught in one storm after another. Finally, she complained to her dad. "It's like I always tell you," he said. "Never press your luck!"

Warning...this one's a bad one...

A prison inmate was assigned to learn carpentry and soon became the best carpenter in the prison. The warden heard about the inmate's work. So, when it was time to remodel his kitchen, he approached the inmate. But the inmate refused to fit a countertop for the warden's kitchen. The inmate said, "I'd love to help, but it was counterfeiting that got me into here in the first place."

I had to read it twice. My mind had wandered with
the last season of the TV show "Prison Break" which
had Scofield doing carpentry work for the warden.
Counterfeiting: pathetic, I love it.

Re-reading it, I see is is actually quite good. A play on
words that makes you think. You have to pay attention,
and that is someting I don't always do. "It's really not
a "bad one".

The leader of a small village was sick and called for the doctor. After examining the leader, the doctor produced a long, thin leather strip. He instructed the leader to bite off an inch of it every day and chew it. A month later, the leader called for the doctor again. He said to the doctor, "The thong is ended, but the malady lingers on."

I like it. Now when a pun is taken in a context like a joke
of this nature, i can appreciate it. Thanks for it.

So the doctor wrote some notes and produced another thong. It was a little chewn, with a soft cord at the end.

No. I'd be fine any way, up on a hill, although one of my creeks and a spring got kinda large for a bit.

It was like the clouds parted at our county and went around. Flooding all around, but not here. For an example of how much rain it was, my brother-in-law's farm about 60 miles from here got 14.1 inches in about 17 hours, and 21 inches in 48 hours. That's a lot of rain.

A new composer! I like it--not too flat nor sharp--well measured and upbeat!
