RAIN PROOF

TWO MAIDEN LADIES WENT TO A LIVERY STABLE AND TOLD THE
ATTENDANT THAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO GO FOR A RIDE AND
THAT THEY WOULD LIKE A TAME HORSE. THE ATTENDANT
HITCHED UP THE HORSE AND BUGGY AND ASSURED THEM THAT
THEY WOULD HAVE NO TROUBLE, BUT TOLD THEM, "BE SURE
AND KEEP THE REIN FROM UNDER THE TAIL." AFTER SOME
HOURS THEY RETURNED ALL SMILES, SAYING, "WE HAD A VERY
NICE RIDE, NO TROUBLE AND WE TOOK TURNS HOLDING
THE UMBRELLA OVER HIS TAIL."

Submitter comment: SISTER SAYS THAT SHE HEARD IT FIRST FROM A HOSPITAL
