Thanks, outwhere. Smile

Hiking Money

A father came home from a long business trip to find his young son riding a brand new bike.

"Where did you get the money for that?" he asked. "It must have cost over 300 dollars!"

"I earned it hiking," replied the boy.

"Hiking??? Come on son, tell your Dad the truth. Nobody can make that sort of money hiking. Where did you Really get the cash from?"

"It's like I say, Dad. Every night when you were gone, Mr. Johnson from the bank would come over to see Mom. He'd give me a 20 dollar bill and tell me to take a hike"

One day a blond is hiking in the woods. She follows the trail until she comes upon a river. As she is thinking how she can get across the river; another blond appears on the opposite side.

The blond yells to the other blond "How do I get to the other side?"

The other blond looks up and then down the river and yells back: "You are on the other side!"

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson went on a camping trip. After a good meal and a bottle of wine, they lay down for the night and went to sleep. Some hours later, Holmes awoke and nudged his faithful friend.
   "Watson, look up and tell me what you see."
   Watson replied, "I see millions and millions of stars."
   "What does that tell you?", Holmes asked,
   Watson pondered for a minute. "Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo. Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful and that we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. Why, what does it tell YOU?"
   Holmes was silent for a moment, then spoke. "No, Watson, you're missing the whole point.  Someone has stolen our tent!"

A loaded mini van pulled in to the only remaining campsite.
    Four children leaped from the vehicle and began feverishly unloading gear and setting up the tent.  The boys rushed to gather firewood, while the girls and their Mother set up the camp stove and cooking utensils.
    A nearby camper marveled at the youngsters.  He then told the Father, "That, sir, is some display of teamwork."
    The father replied, "I have a system; no one goes to the bathroom until the camp is set up."
