    When Kit Carson wasn't out exploring, he lived on a small farm. One day, the famous frontiersman decided to surprise his wife with eggs and fish for breakfast. Arising early, he went down to the henhouse and collected some fresh eggs. There were only six.
    On the way back, he stopped at the pond and landed a magnificent large-mouth bass. He wasn't sure how to carry everything---then he had an idea. He carefully dropped the eggs inside the fish and started for home. Suddenly, the Western hero found himself confronted by a mean, hungry looking wolf. Fearing that he might become a meal for the canine, he threw the bass aside and hurried up a nearby tree. From there, he watched as the wolf grabbed his fish, eggs and all, and ran off.
    When Carson got back home empty handed, he related the adventure to Mrs. Carson, who responded, saying, "You shouldn't have put all your eggs in one bass, Kit."

    ^When you retire, once you get used to not getting up to go to work, you'll find you have a bunch of time - and you'll want something to keep your mind active. In my case, it's playing tournament bridge, doing sudokus, and finding good shaggy dog stories. If you're thinking about retiring, get with your financial advisor - as soon as you're convinced you have a workable financial plan, pull the plug! Until you're there, you can't imagine how good retirement is! :)

    Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
    Humpty Dumpty had a great fall,
    All the kings horses and all the kings men,
    Said "Screw him, he's only an egg!"

    A Rabbi was stationed on a small island as a missionary to a tribe called Trids. The Trids were friendly and peaceful and the Rabbi came to love them dearly. The only problem was a Cyclops who would come down from the local mountain and kill the Trids by kicking them. The Rabbi tried reasoning with the Cyclops to no avail.

    One night, the Trids threw a great party which angered the Cyclops. So much so, that the Cyclops came down from the mountain and killed every Trid by kicking them. The distraught Rabbi went to the Cyclops and asked, “Why would you do this terrible thing to these peaceful Trids?”

    The Cyclops replied, “Silly Rabbi, Kicks are for Trids!”

    Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little, which made him rather frail, and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath. This made him…

    A sailor was caught AWOL as he tried to sneak on board his ship at about 3 am. The chief petty officer spied him and ordered the sailor to stop. Upon hearing the sailor's lame explanation for his tardiness, the officer ordered the sailor, "Take this broom and sweep every link on this anchor chain by morning or it's the brig for you!"

    The sailor began to pick up the broom and commence performing his charge. As he began to sweep, a tern landed on the broom handle. The sailor yelled at the bird to leave, but it didn't. The lad picked the tern off the broom handle, and tossed it out of his way. The bird left, only to return and light once again on the broom handle, and was once again tossed overboard. The sailor went through the same routine all over again, with the same result. He couldn't get any cleaning done because he can only sweep at the chain once or twice before the blasted bird returns.

    When morning came, so did the chief petty officer, to check up on his wayward sailor. "What in the heck have you been doing all night? This chain is no cleaner than when you started! What have you to say for yourself, sailor?" barked the chief. "Honest, Chief," came the reply, "I tossed a tern all night and couldn't sweep a link!"

    The blonde responded, “Bulova and Timex.”
    The brunette stated, “What peculiar names for dogs! How did you arrive at those names?”
    The blonde answered, “DUH! They’re watch dogs!”
