Gone Fishing

Joke of the Day

The minister came to see me the other day. He said that at my age I should be thinking about the Hereafter.

I told him, "Oh I do, all the time! No matter where I am, in the parlor, upstairs, in the kitchen, or down in the basement, I ask myself: now what am I here after.”


If a man can do at 50 what he did at 25; and I'll show you a man that didn't do much at 25
