    Its been hotter than Hades the past few days here in Arizona.

    The other day I saw a bird using a potholder to pull a worm out of the ground.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    The king wanted to go fishing, and he asked the royal weather
    forecaster the forecast for the next few hours. The palace
    meteorologist assured him that there was no chance of rain.

    So the king and the queen went fishing. On the way he met a
    man with a fishing pole riding on a donkey, and he asked the
    man if the fish were biting.

    The fisherman said, “Your Majesty, you should return to the
    palace! In just a short time I expect a huge rain storm.”

    The king replied: "I hold the palace meteorologist in high regard.
    He is an educated and experienced professional. Besides, I
    pay him very high wages. He gave me a very different forecast.
    I trust him.”

    So the king continued on his way. However, in a short time a
    torrential rain fell from the sky. The King and Queen were totally
    soaked.

    Furious, the king returned to the palace and gave the order to
    fire the meteorologist. Then he summoned the fisherman and
    offered him the prestigious position of royal forecaster.

    The fisherman said, “Your Majesty, I do not know anything about
    forecasting. I obtain my information from my donkey. If I see my
    donkey's ears drooping, it means with certainty that… it will rain.”

    So the king hired the donkey.

    And thus began the practice of hiring dumb asses to work in
    influential positions of government. The practice is unbroken to
    this date.

    Thus, the democrat party symbol was born!

    Hi Retread! Two things re above post.

    (1) Thought that "Weather Tales" was the best place to put it. Hope you didn't mind.

    (2) Also, I am really trying to bump the blinking thing, which I thought was amusing, re the Dem party!
