IMG_2095An 80 year old Texas rancher went to the doctor for a check-up.

The doctor runs a number of tests on the old rancher and finds him in perfect health. So he asks, “How do you stay in such great physical condition?”

“In my spare time I like to hunt and fish” says the old rancher, “and that’s why I’m in such good shape. I’m up well before daylight riding herd and mending fences and when I’m not doing that, I’m out hunting or fishing. In the evening, I have a beer, a shot of whiskey and all is well.”

The doctor is getting frustrated at this point, “So, I guess he went hunting with you this morning too?”

“No, Grandpa couldn’t go this morning because he’s getting married today.”
