Before we start, this is a warning to bethy not to read this in the library or with a cup of coffee close by! The Lone Ranger and Tonto went camping in the desert - or it could have been in the Redwoods! :) After they got their tent all set up, both men fell sound asleep. Some hours later, Tonto wakes the Lone Ranger and says, "Kemo Sabe, look towards sky, what you see? " The Lone Ranger replies, "I see millions of stars." "What that tell you?" asked Tonto. The Lone Ranger ponders for a minute then says, "Astronomically speaking, it tells me there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo. Time wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three in the morning. Theologically, the Lord is all-powerful and we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. " "Why, What does it tell you, Tonto?" "It tell Tonto that you dumber than buffalo trail. It mean someone stole the tent!"
chuckling my patented chuckle
Thanks for the laugh! In the redwoods, however, the sky may not have been visible.
And our diminutive sister beth may relate better to camping in a bog!
Thanks for the chuckle, 2G... but if Beth had been there, I know she would have noticed the tent gone first. -Basically, because knowing her, she would have probably brought a bunk bed... and as short as she is, she would have been on the top bunk!
Ah yes, had my tent been stolen I would have either drown or froze. Either way the stars would have been hidden behind a big black cloud no doubt.
And HOI!!!! SW.. i heard that!!!
I'm sure glad y'all enjoyed it! :)
I just couldn't help myself in sharing the laughter ;)
First, I think I saw Alan, the retired cowboy, holding the reigns of Silver while feeding him carrots to keep him quiet.
All the while Beth and Ted quietly lifted the tent and walked away with it. Beth wanted to make a a super large umbrella out of it for those (almost every day) rainy days in Ireland. And, who was Ted to argue with a little pip squeak like Beth?! She might kick him in the shins! And, especially when she told him it was a 'must have' when she goes the beach this summer in the U.S. "I might cook like a lobster. Now you wouldn't want that to happen now would you?" she said with that 'poor little 'ol me' look.
Art was the look out and all the while kept saying, "I don't think this is a good idea! You never know what's behind that mask of his!"
All Bill could do was watch as Alison rolled on the ground laughing hysterically. She couldn't believe Ted had fallen for Beth's line! Bill didn't have his hearing aids turned on, so he couldn't hear her. But he knew she must have found somethin' pretty funny. Because her face was turning red and she couldn't catch her breath.
Stay tuned for the next adventures of the CB gang!
Thank you, Buckeye, for bringing a smile to my face right now. I've been downhearted since the death of someone I know last week. He was 28 and committed suicide. It and other things have been on my mind. I've been camping before with my husband and kids. I learned that I don't like tents or sleeping bags. I am all about comfort!
