An elderly, successful farmer had owned and developed a large farm over a period of many years. He had a large pond in the back, picnic tables, horseshoe courts, basketball court , etc. The pond was properly shaped and fixed up for swimming. One evening the old farmer decided to go down to the pond, as he hadn't been down to check it out for a few days. As he neared the pond, he heard voices, shouting and laughing with glee. As he came closer he saw it was a group of young women skinny dipping in his pond. He made the women aware of his presence and they all went to the deep end of the pond. One of the women shouted to him “We're not coming out until you leave!” The old man replied, “I didn't come here to watch you ladies swim, or to make you get out of the pond. I only came to feed the alligator.”

The Moral of the Story

Old age and treachery
will triumph over youth
and skill every time.
