Water, water, everywhere!





John went to visit his 90 year old grandfather in a very secluded, rural area of Georgia.



After spending a great evening chatting the night away, John's grandfather prepared breakfast of bacon, eggs and toast. However, John noticed a film like substance on his plate, and questioned his grandfather asking, "Are these plates clean?"




His grandfather replied, "They're as clean as cold water can get them. Just you go ahead and finish your meal, Sonny!"




For lunch the old man made hamburgers. Again, John was concerned about the plates as his appeared to have tiny specks around the edge that looked like dried egg and asked, "Are you sure these plates are clean?"




Without looking up the old man said, "I told you before, Sonny, those dishes are as clean as cold water can get them. Now don't you fret, I don't want to hear another word about it!"




Later that afternoon, John was on his way to a nearby town and as he was leaving, his grandfather' s dog started to growl, and wouldn't let him pass. John yelled and said, "Grandfather, your dog won't let me get to my car"




Without diverting his attention from the football game he was watching on TV, the old man shouted...




"COLDWATER, GO LAY DOWN!!!"

Rachelle said...

the first time I read that joke, I guffawed for a good long time. Poor guy didn't know the dog's name?

We've wanted to hit the hose just like this gal all weekend. 100 degrees is a cool day, lately. But we can't complain, we're home and with family and have AC.

Anita Johnson said...

OK, true confession. I have looked at a plate and thought, "dogs or the dishwasher, which one was it?" Perfect water shot for the temps we are all experiencing!
