    My 73 yr old NC Mama sent this to cheer me up and make me laugh cause she believes laughter is good medicine and I am proud to say I was laughing before I got to the last sentence! Hope y'all enjoy just as much! And I do have game "wardner" friends in streams and forest!

    This is a hoot!
    Some of you who have never fished or have never been stopped by a Game Warden may not get this on your first read, but this is a true story:

    A man was stopped by a game-warden in the North Carolina Mountains recently with two buckets of fish leaving a lake well known for its fishing.

    The game warden asked the man, "Do you have a license to catch
    those fish?"

    The man replied to the game warden, "No, sir. These are my pet
    fish."

    "Pet fish?!" the warden replied.

    "Yes, sir. Every night I take these here fish down to the lake and
    let them swim around for a while. I whistle and they jump back into their buckets, and I take em home."

    "That's a bunch of hooey! Fish can't do that!"

    The man looked at the game warden for a moment, and then said,
    "Here, I'll show you. It really works."

    "O.K. I've GOT to see this!" The game warden was curious now.

    The man poured the fish in to the river and stood and waited.

    After several minutes, the game warden turned to the man and said,
    "Well."

    "Well, What?" the man responded.

    "When are you going to call them back?" the game warden prompted.

    "Call who back?" the man asked.

    "The FISH."

    "What fish?" The man asked.
