Other - Ole's Birthday
All of his life Ole had heard stories of an amazing family tradition. It seems that his father, grandfather & great-grandfather had all been able to walk on water on their 21st birthday. On that day, they'd walk across the lake to the boat club for their first legal drink.
So when Ole's 21st birthday came around, he and his
pal Sven took a boat out to the middle of the lake.
Ole stepped out of the boat and nearly drowned!
Sven just managed to pull him to safety.
Furious and confused, Ole went to see his grandmother.
"Grandma, it's my 21st birthday, so why can't I walk
across the lake like my father, his father, and his
father before him?"
Granny looked into Ole's eyes and said,
"Because, light of my life but few-watts-short-of- a 25 watt bulb,-- your father, grandfather & great grandfather were born in January, you were born in July."
