Three men were hiking through a forest…

when they came upon a large raging, violent river

Needing to get to the other side,
the first man prayed:

’ God, please give me the strength to cross the river. Poof!!! God gave him big arms and strong legs…

and he was able to swim across in about 2 hours, having almost drowned twice. After witnessing that, the second man prayed:

‘God, please give me strength and the tools to cross the river’ Poof!!! God gave him a rowboat and strong arms and strong legs…

and he was able to row across
in about an hour
after almost capsizing once.
Seeing what happened
to the first two men,
the third man prayed:

‘God, please give me the strength, the tools and the intelligence to cross the river’ Poof!!! HE WAS TURNED INTO A WOMAN!!! She checked the map, hiked one hundred yards upstream…

and walked across the bridge.
Guys, if at first you don’t succeed,
do it the way your wife told you!

How true, how true. I always give my wife credit, where credit is do. I am man enough to admit when I am wrong. You can never go wrong listening to your best friend.

It would be just like my wife to let me swim across then walk upstream and cross the bridge, of course she had already told me about the bridge but was I listening NOOOOO!

HA HA HA! Good on Topa. Been married 32 years. Learned early on that if we disagreed on something, 9 times out of 10, she was right and I was wrong. So for the past 25 years, I have been taking her side on the issue so we are both right! Thanks for sharing. Great joke.
