Here is my favorite Flood Joke:

The Hand of God

There is a joke that has been around a long time about a man who gets stranded by a flood. As the waters began to surround his house, a man in a row boat came by. He told the man to get in and he'd save him, but the man said, no, he had faith in God and would wait for God to save him. The flood waters kept rising and the man had to go to the second floor of his house. This time a man in a motor boat came by to rescue him, but again the man said ‘no.’ He was going to wait for God to save him. The flood waters kept rising. By now the man was out on the roof. A helicopter then came by and lowered a rope, but the man refused help again. He had faith. He had such faith, he was sure that God would rescue him. Of course, the water kept rising and the man drowned.

When he got to heaven, he asked God where he went wrong. He had complete faith in God, but God had let him drown. "What more do you want from me?" asked God. "I sent you two boats and a helicopter."

Sam and Aunt Bea shut down all the electronics for a while and I did up all the golf score cards on the laptop. I had enough lightning strikes up here for 3 lifetimes. I do love a good thunderstorm though.

Aha...so we were right. Sam hooked up w/Aunt Bea. Man, that didn't take long. She chased you like a coon dog.

Oscar always wants to go outside in the chicken barn, where he sits there trembling. Don't understand him at all. We try to sit by him and he just wants out.

Not bad.....it was a home made, hand delivered meal while I was working. Complete with hot coffee. Hooked me in like a fish. Can't say the rest. Aunt Bea would blush.

No I did not. That one appears to be in Florida, but it's like the one that hit my house. WHILE I HAD THE FAUCET RUNNING AND GETTING A DRINK OF WATER!!! BIG BLUE STREAK!!! Ain't been right since. Maybe thats why I need glasses now.

Can you still play the trumpet since the lightning struck, Samuel?

I've never been able to play the trumpet since it struck my place.

Most certainly I can still play. I'm starting up again with the Stobie Band next week. Why can't you play? Did the lightning melt your horn? Go get it, or another one and limber up the chops. You can join Uncle Sam's Moonshine Jazz Band.

Samuel,Do you think it might be because I couldn't play the trumpet before the lightning strike?

The north side is the upper class rednecks. Indoor plumbing and no marrying cousins.

Sorry, Samuel! It's an old joke, somewhat altered:

"Doctor, will I be able to play the organ after the operation"
"Yes, sure"
"Good! I've always wanted to play the organ!"

Seriously, I'm sorry you weren't in PY to play last Wednesday. Let us know of any future gig near here!
