Old Dogs
 
>
>Old Dogs
>
>An old dog gets lost in a jungle. Wandering about, he notices a young
>Leopard heading in his direction, with the intention of having lunch.
The
>old dog
>thinks, "Oh, oh! Here comes trouble!" Spotting some bones on the
ground
>close by, he quickly sits down to chew on a bone, with his back to
the
>approaching cat.
>
>Just as the leopard is about to leap, the dog exclaims loudly, "Boy,
that
>was
>one delicious leopard! I wonder if there are any more around here?"
>
>Hearing this, the leopard aborts his attack, practically in
mid-strike.
>With
>a
>look of terror he slinks away into the trees. "Whew!", he says, That
was
>close!
>That old dog nearly had me!"
>
>Meanwhile, a monkey who had been watching the whole scene from a
nearby
>tree
>figures he can trade this knowledge for protection from the leopard.
So
>off
>he goes, but the old dog sees him heading after the leopard, and
figures
>that
>something must be up. The monkey soon catches up with the leopard,
spills
>the beans, and strikes a deal for himself.
>
>The young leopard is furious at being made a fool of and says, "Here,
>monkey, hop on my back and see what's going to happen to that
conniving
>canine!"
>
>The old dog sees the leopard coming, with the monkey on his back. But
>instead of running, he sits down again with his back to his
attackers,
>pretending
>he hasn't seen them yet. Just when they get close enough to hear the
old
>rascal loudly says: "Where's that darn monkey? I sent him off an hour
ago
>to bring
>me another leopard!"
>
>
>
>Moral(s) of this story:
>
>1.) Age and treachery will always overcome youth, skill and idealism.
>
>2.) Bull and brilliance only come with age and experience.
>
>3.) Don't mess with senior citizens.

By saying "Bless her heart" she can get away with anything she wants..LOL Happy Birthday to her. I'll be 72 in Dec. so I'll just enjoy being 71 awhile longer. My body knows that but I can't believe it. I don't feel any different than I did 100 years ago.
