  • Down and out

    A man was walking down the street when he was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless man who asked him for a couple of dollars for dinner.

    The man took out his wallet, extracted ten dollars and asked, "If I give you this money, will you buy some beer with it instead?"

    "No, I had to stop drinking years ago," the homeless man replied.

    "Will you use it to gamble instead of buying food?" the man asked.

    "No, I don't gamble," the homeless man said. "I need everything I can get just to stay alive."

    "Will you spend it on greens fees at a golf course instead of food?" the man asked.

    "Are you NUTS!" replied the homeless man "I haven't played golf in 20 years!"

    "Will you spend the money on a woman in the red light district instead of food?" the man asked.

    "What disease would I get for ten lousy bucks?!!" exclaimed the home less man.

    "Well," said the man, "I'm not going to give you the money. Instead, I'm going to take you home for a terrific dinner cooked by my wife."

    The homeless man was astounded. "Won't your wife be furious with you for doing that? I know I'm dirty, and I probably smell pretty disgusting."

    The man replied, "That's okay. I just want her to see what a man looks like who's given up beer, gambling, golf, and sex. "
    Every great thing that has ever happened since the beginning of time has started as a single thought in someones mind.
    So if you are capable of thought then you are capable of great things
    Good luck and stay well.
