    Now here's a real Wyoming cowboy story.....


    > A cowboy, who just moved to Wyoming from Texas , walks into a bar and

    > orders

    > three mugs of Bud. He sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of

    > each one in turn. When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and

    > orders

    > three more.

    > The bartender approaches and tells the cowboy, "You know, a mug goes flat

    > after I draw it. It would taste better if you bought one at a time."

    > The cowboy replies, "Well, you see, I have two brothers. One is in Arizona

    > ,

    > the other is in Colorado . When we all left our home in Texas , we

    > promised

    > that we'd drink this way to remember the days when we drank together. So

    > I'm

    > drinking one beer for each of my brothers and one for myself."

    > The bartender admits that this is a nice custom, and leaves it there.

    > The cowboy becomes a regular in the bar, and always drinks the same way.

    > He

    > orders three mugs and drinks them in turn.

    > One day, he comes in and only orders two mugs. All the regulars take

    > The cowboy looks quite puzzled for a moment, then a light dawns in his

    > and he laughs.

    > "Oh, no, everybody's just fine," he explains, "It's just that my wife and

    > "Hasn't affected my brothers though."

    Reminds me of something Jim Stafford, comedian-singer-songwriter (Spiders & Snakes, My Girl Bill) said when he had a summer TV show in the mid-70's (before most of you were born), "Baptists are like cats. You know they're doing it, you just can't catch them at it." :grin:

    That's funny! :rolling:

    I've always heard that the difference between Baptists and Methodists is that a Methodist will say hello to you in the liquor store. :D

    tecumseh:
    in another life I lived in a very Baptist community that was dry (no alcohol). I had a buddy (much older than myself) who owned a package store just 100 feet beyond the parrish (that county in most places) line. he had a drive in window and he told me you could identify the Baptist by the ones who sunk so far down in their seat that the baptist doing exactly the same thing in the car behind couldn't recognize them.
