Old Age and Cunning
An old farmer in Outback Australia had owned a large cattle station for many years. He had a large natural rock pool out the back, fixed up nicely; picnic tables, horseshoe courts, shade areas, parking etc.
The pool was set in natural rock and was always inviting for travellers and backpackers who happened to pass by. One evening the old farmer decided to go down to the pool, as he hadn't been there for a while, and look it over.
As he neared the pool, he heard voices shouting and laughing.
As he came closer he saw it was a bunch of young women skinny dipping in his pool. He made the women aware of his presence and they all rushed to the deep end of the pool.
One of the women shouted to him, "We're not coming out until you leave!"
The old man replied, "I didn't come down here to watch you ladies swim or make you get out of the pool naked. I'm just here to feed the crocodile."
Moral: Old age and cunning will triumph over youth and enthusiasm every time...
