A Family Tradition

All of his life Roger, from Brainerd, Minnesota, had heard stories of an amazing family tradition. It seems that his father, grandfather and great-grandfather had all been able to walk on water on their 21st birthday. On that day, they'd walk across the lake to the boat club for their first legal drink.

So when Roger's 21st birthday came around, he and his pal Herman took a boat out to the middle of the lake. Roger stepped out of the boat and nearly drowned! Herman just managed to pull him to safety.

Furious and confused, Roger went to see his grandmother. "Grandma, it's my 21st birthday, so why can't I walk across the lake like my father, his father, and his father before him?"

Granny looked into Roger's eyes and said, "Well Roger, it's because your father, grandfather and great grandfather were born in January, you were born in July."

I have always been jealous of those who have family traditions. My family never did. We just kept doing the same things over and over again.

sort of like the time a priest and a minister decided to take the local rabbi fishing. They rowed out into the lake and dropped the anchor.Suddenly the priest got up and said we forgot the drinks , stepped out the left side of the boat and walked ashore and came back with drinks .After a while the minister said I think we need more bait, stepped out the left side of the boat and walked ashore and came back with bait.Not to be outdone the rabbi gets up announcing he will go get more sandwiches and steps off the right side. He sinks to the bottom.You think we should have told him about the sunken stone wall on the left?
