anecdote I received from my son this morning:

An old farmer in Florida had owned a large farm for many years. He had a 
large pond in the back, fixed up nice; picnic tables, horseshoe courts, and
apple and peach trees. The pond was properly shaped and fixed up for
when it was built.

the pond.
One of the women shouted to him, "We're not coming out until you leave!"
The old man frowned, "I didn't come down here to watch you ladies swim
