My Ass

  One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The
animal cried piteously  for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.
Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be
covered up anyway;  it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey.
He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They
grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At
first, the donkey
realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to
every one's
amazement he quieted down.
A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the
well. He was
astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit
his back, the
donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off
and take a step up.

As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of
the  animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon,
everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge
of the well and happily trotted off!

Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to
getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of
our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just
by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.
Remember the five simple rules to be happy:
1. Free your heart from hatred - Forgive.

2. Free your mind from worries - Most never happen.

3. Live simply and appreciate what you have.

4. Give more.
5. Expect less

NOW --------

Enough of that crap . . .

The donkey later came back and bit the shit out of the
farmer who had  tried to bury him. The gash from the bite got infected, and
the farmer eventually died in agony from septic shock.


When you do something wrong and try to cover your ass,
- it always comes back to bite you. Ed
