pot o' gold

I wonder if you can help me with this whole "pot of gold" thing. The legend is that the leprechauns hide a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, right? Okay, so I found the end of a rainbow. But before I dive into chilly waters and risk a reprimand from the park district... which end of the rainbow has the gold? Plus, is it any rainbow, or do leprechauns stay in Ireland? Please... if you have a leprechaun friend, try to get this information for me, so that we can abscond this legendary loot.


But if you can't help me with that, I'll be fine. This weekend's marriage conference reminded me that I received a gift from God 22 years ago. (That gift is the fine lady we refer to as "Mrs. Craver.") My wife and I had a great time these past three days, and when we got back to the kids Sunday afternoon, we all took a walk to the park.


The dog in the photo belongs to my sister-in-law. As you can see, she likes to "hug." To do that, she'll nuzzle up to a person, and lean on them hard, and stay there. I am not really a big lover of dogs, but when my s.i.l. needed a new home for her dear pet, I was happy to oblige as a way to demonstrate how much I care for Mrs. Craver's little sister. I think they said this dog is a Shepherd/Grayhound mix, and she is 15 years old. I'm glad that "old girl" is happy in our home. Speaking of German Shepherds...


Two guys were walking their dogs-one had a German Shepherd and the other had a Chihuahua. The man with the Shepherd suggested going into a bar for a drink. The other man said, "They're not going to let dogs into the bar."


The first guy said, "No? Watch this."


So he put on some dark glasses, acted like the German Shepherd was a seeing-eye dog, walked into the bar, and ordered a drink. And no one said anything. So the second guy took out some dark glasses, slipped them on, and walked his Chihuahua into the bar.


The bartender said, "Sorry, we don't allow dogs in here."


And the man said, "It's okay. It's my seeing-eye dog."


The bartender laughed and said, "This Chihuahua is your seeing-eye dog?"


And the guy said, "They gave me a Chihuahua?"

I think those Leprechauns are a little tricky, so if you do find one be careful, they hate parting with that pot of gold. How wonderful that you've been married for 22 years, and so lovely that you count your blessings. Your s-in-l's dog is a beautiful animal and I'm glad you took him in because I know he found a loving home.

Last but not least, that joke was a hoot.

You sure have a dilemma as far as the pot of gold is concerned Craver and I want to know the answers to these questions myself. Tell you what, whoever finds out tells the other and then we will share the gold. How’s that for being a good friend? 

I see, Mr. Dave. That must be how you purchased your snazzy, new camera. Good for you!

Good to hear from you, ESI. I'm laughing right now, because I really need to work on delivery. Often, I butcher good jokes by forgetting parts or placing the emPHAsis on the wrong sylLAble.

Right, Denise. But I need to know if they're bound to the Emerald Isle. If not, and I encounter a creature, what is it, and am I bound by the same moral code that applies to humans? Can I whack it over the head and take its gold?

Mrs. Craver and I went for a walk last night... just because. It was nice.

If I DID find a pot of gold Joan, I'd hop on a plane and visit you and a few other blogging friends, that's for sure!
