Romantic Dinner

A man and woman were having dinner in a

fine restaurant.  They were gazing lovingly

at each other and holding hands.

Their waitress, taking another order at a table

a few steps away, suddenly noticed the man slowly

sliding down his chair and under the table, but the

woman acted unconcerned.

The waitress watched as the man slid all the

way down his chair and out of sight under the table.

Still, the woman appeared calm and unruffled,

apparently unaware her dining companion

had disappeared.

The waitress went over to the table and said

to the woman, "Pardon me, ma'am, but I think

your husband just slid under the table."

The woman calmly looked up at her and said,

"No, he didn't. He just walked in."

The Dog and the Panther

An old German Shepherd starts chasing rabbits and before

long, discovers that he's lost. Wandering about, he notices a panther

heading rapidly in his direction with the intention of having


The old German Shepherd thinks, "Oh, oh! I'm in deep now!" Noticing

some bones on the ground close by, he immediately settles down to chew

on the bones with his back to the approaching cat. Just as the panther

is about to leap, the old German Shepherd exclaims loudly, "Boy,

that was one delicious panther! I wonder, if there are any more around


Hearing this, the young panther halts his attack in mid-strike,

a look of terror comes over him and he slinks away into the trees.

"Whew!," says the panther, "That was close! That old German

Shepherd nearly had me!"

Meanwhile, a squirrel who had been watching the whole scene

from a nearby tree, figures he can put this knowledge to

good use and trade it for protection from the panther.

So, off he goes. The squirrel soon catches up with the

panther, spills the beans and strikes a deal for himself with the panther. 

The young panther is furious at being made a fool of and says,

"Here, squirrel, hop on my back and see what's going to

happen to that conniving canine!"

Now, the old German Shepherd sees the panther coming

with the squirrel on his back and thinks, "What am I going to

do now?," but instead of running, the dog sits down with his

back to his attackers, pretending he hasn't seen them yet, and

just when they get close enough to hear, the old German

Shepherd says, "Where's that squirrel? I sent him off an hour

ago to bring me another panther!"

Moral of this story:

Don't mess with the old dogs.  Age and experience count.
