The first car load of Boy Scouts had left my house minutes earlier, bound for our three day wilderness trip. As I backed my own van load of Scouts out of my garage, I noticed a pair of hiking boots on the back steps, so I stopped to retrieve them.
An hour later, we caught up with the first car, which was parked at a highway rest stop. Seeing me pull up, my assistant Scout leader rolled down his window. “Your wife just called on my cell phone,” he said. “She asked if you knew anything about the plumber’s boots that were on your back steps.”
Did you hear about the two guys who decided to try duck hunting? They bought new outfits and equipment and went out to a place in the woods where they heard the hunting was really good.
But after several hours of thrashing through the woods, one fellow said, “I don’t know about this. We’ve been out here all day and haven’t caught a single duck. Do you think we’re doing something wrong?”
“I don’t know,” replied the other. “Maybe we’re not throwing the dog high enough.”
I couldn’t find my luggage at the airport baggage area, so I went to the lost luggage office and told the woman there that my bags never showed up.
She smiled and told me not to worry, because she was a trained professional and I was in good hands.
“Now,” she asked me, “has your plane arrived yet?”
