One day, a man journeyed to his 90-year-old grandfather’s remote rural home in their home state. After a night’s stay, his grandfather rustled up a breakfast of eggs and bacon. As he peered at his plate, he spotted a filmy residue and inquired, “Are these plates really clean?”

Grandpa assured him, “These plates are as spotless as a crystal-clear stream. Go ahead, enjoy your meal.”

That afternoon, while eating the hamburgers his grandfather made for lunch, he noticed tiny specks around the edge of his plate and a substance that looked like dried egg yokes, so he asked again, “Are you sure these plates are clean”? without looking up from his hamburger, the grandfather says,

“I told you before; those rings are as old as a gentle mountain stream can be. Let’s not ride them anymore!” In the afternoon he left for a nearby town to pick up dinner.“

As he tried to leave, his grandfather’s dog began to growl, blocking his path. He exclaimed, “Grandpa, your dog won’t let me through!” Grandpa, engrossed in a football game on TV, hollered back, “Cold Water, lie down!”
