WELCOME to THURSDAY JULY 22, 2021
Here’s The Story….
An American businessman was at a pier in a small coastal Mexican village when a small boat with just one fisherman docked. Inside the small boat were several large yellow-fin tuna. The American complimented the Mexican on the quality of his fish and asked how long it took to catch them.
The Mexican replied only a little while.
The American then asked why didn’t he stay out longer and catch more fish?
The Mexican said he had enough to support his family’s immediate needs. The American then asked the Mexican how he spent the rest of his time.
The Mexican fisherman said, “I sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, take siesta with my wife, Maria, stroll into the village each evening where I sip wine and play guitar with my amigos. I have a full and busy life, senor.”
The American scoffed, “I am a Harvard MBA and could help you. You should spend more time fishing and, with the proceeds, buy a bigger boat. With the proceeds from the bigger boat, you could buy several boats, eventually you would have a fleet of fishing boats. Instead of selling your catch to a middleman you would sell directly to the processor, eventually opening your own cannery. You would control the product, processing and distribution.
“You would need to leave this small coastal fishing village and move to Mexico City, then LA and eventually NYC where you will run your expanding enterprise.”
The Mexican fisherman asked, “But senor, how long will this all take?”
The American replied, “15-20 years.”
“But what then, senor?” asked the Mexican.
The American laughed, and said, “That’s the best part! When the time is right, you would announce an IPO and sell your company stock to the public. You’ll become very rich, you would make millions!”
“Millions, senor?” replied the Mexican. “Then what?”
The American said, “Then you would retire. Move to a small coastal fishing village where you would sleep late, fish a little, play with your kids, take siesta with your wife, stroll to the village in the evenings where you could sip wine and play your guitar with your amigos.”
That’s my story and I’m sticking too it! Have a GREAT THURSDAY! people, stay safe, and
whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman! 😁

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
My friend asked his father-in-law, a crop duster, how his day had gone.
“I had just the worst day,” replied the man. “This morning I was up in my plane dusting a field when
I nicked a power line and damaged the wing on the plane. When I got back to the office, my boss
chewed me out. Then the guy from the FAA chewed me out.
“On my way home, I stopped at a bar and was handed a warm beer. So I yelled at the bartender,
‘Don’t you have any cold beer?!’ “The bartender said, ‘Sorry, but we’ve been out of electricity all day
ever since some idiot crop-duster hit a power line down the road.'”
Wednesdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Sanka! You dead?”
Answer: Cool Runnings!
“Cool Runnings” is based on the true story of Jamaica’s first ever bobsled team and their bid to compete in the winter Olympics.
Derice Bannock is an Olympic hopeful, training for the 100 meters sprint. Sanka Coffie is his best friend, who is the reigning pushcart derby champion. When Sanka crashes his cart into a stall, after winning his seventh derby, Derice rushes up and asks: “Sanka! You dead?” Sanka replies “No man”.
We hear this exchange several more times in the movie, after they crash the practice sled into a Jamaican police car and again after they crash in practice at the tryouts.
The team make it into the Olympics but are ostracized by officials and other sledders alike, who don’t think they are serious about the sport. Despite a very poor start, the intrepid Jamaicans win the public over, but crash during the final Olympic race.
In the most poignant scene of the movie, the four teammates carry their sled over the finish line and in the process finally win approval by their peers.
