Older men

I was looking back to entries I made 13 years ago and this one popped up. I apologise to any Australians who might be offended - I think the ethnicity is unimportant.

My apologies if you have read this before – I thought it might elicit a wry grin – or do I mean groan?

An elderly Australian man owned a large property through which a stream ran. He had built a dam some years before to create a pool for swimming. 

One evening he strolled down to check that all was well and took with him a bucket to collect apples from the trees that grew nearby.

As he approached the pool he heard voices shouting and laughing and when he drew closer he saw that a number of young women were skinny-dipping in the water. When the bathers saw him they moved into deeper water and called out, 'We're not coming out until you leave!'

The old man frowned. 'I didn't come down here to watch you girls,' he said. Holding up the bucket he continued, 'I've come to feed the crocodile.'

The moral of this tale is that older men may walk slowly but they can still think fast!
