This Too Shall Pass…..

Do you remember Jerry Clower? I thought about one of his jokes today….Well, our covid-19 is no joking matter but we do need to smile at ourselves ever once in a while. Anyway, back to his joke. Seems as though him and one of his cousins were out coon hunting one night and the dogs treed one, they thought. They caught up with the dogs and could not get the coon to jump out of the tree. One of them got the notion to climb the tree and throw the coon out. Well, when he got up to the top of t he tree he discovered  it was not a coon but an old bob cat, and the bob cat was madder than an old hornet. He hollered down to his cousin to shoot him, to which the cousin replied, I’m afraid to shoot cause I might hit you…He hollered back, “that’s ok, go ahead and shoot. One of us gotta have some relief. ….So, relief would also be welcomed now-a-days also…but don’t shoot just yet.
