A Work in Progress.

Not sure where this one is going but I know it has not arrived there yet. 

I am very fortunate in having a wonderful family around me and I am proud of them all. That of course does not stop me having a little gentle dig at them from time to time. 

My son is a lawyer and that speaks for itself. Lawyers are so often the butt of jokes about how uncaring they are and in the case of my son that is so many million miles away from reality.

But I did hear this little tale about an American lawyer that brought a smile to my face. 

One afternoon a lawyer was driving home  in his limousine when he saw two men along the roadside eating grass. Disturbed, he ordered his driver to stop and he got out to investigate.
He asked one man, "Why are you eating grass?"
"We don't have any money for food," the poor man replied. "We have to eat grass."
"Well, then, you can come with me to my house and I'll feed you," the lawyer said.
"But sir, I have a wife and two children with me. They are over there, under that tree."
"Bring them along," the lawyer replied.
Turning to the other poor man he stated, "You come with us, too."
The second man, in a pitiful voice, then said, "But sir, I also have a wife and SIX children with me!"
"Bring them along as well," the lawyer answered.
They all entered the car, which was no easy task, even for a car as large as the limousine was. Once underway, one of the poor fellows turned to the lawyer and said, "Sir, you are too kind. Thank you for taking all of us with you."
The lawyer replied, "Glad to do it. You'll really love my place.
The grass is almost a foot high."
Have a wonderful day.
