    Ladies: Want to go and sew by the river?

    This is one for the ladies. I rarely pass on jokes, but I think this might appeal to some of us costumers...

    One day when a seamstress was sewing while sitting next to a river, her thimble fell into the river. When she cried out, the Lord appeared and asked, "My dear child, why are you crying?"?

    The seamstress replied that her thimble had fallen into the water and that she needed it to help her husband in making a living for their family.

    The Lord dipped His hand into the water and pulled up a golden thimble ringed with pearls.
    "Is this your thimble?" the Lord asked.

    The seamstress replied, "No."

    The Lord again dipped into the river again. He held out a silver thimble ringed with sapphires.
    "Is this your thimble?" the Lord asked.

    Again, the seamstress replied, "No."

    The Lord reached down again and came up with a leather thimble.
    "Is this your thimble?" the Lord asked.

    The seamstress replied, "Yes."

    The Lord was pleased with the woman's honesty and gave her all three thimbles to keep, and the seamstress went home happy.

    Some years later, the seamstress was walking with her husband along the riverbank, and her husband fell into the river and disappeared under the water. When she cried out, the Lord again appeared and asked her, "Why are you crying?"

    "Oh Lord, my husband has fallen into the river!"

    The Lord went down into the water and came up with Antonio Banderas.
    "Is this your husband?" the Lord asked.

    "Yes," cried the seamstress.

    The Lord was furious. "You lied! That is an untruth!"

    The seamstress replied, "Oh, forgive me, my Lord. It is a misunderstanding. You see, if I had said 'no' to Antonio Banderas, then you would have come up with Colin Farrell. And if I said 'no' to him, you would have come up with my husband. Had I then said 'yes,' you would have given me all three. Lord, I'm not in the best of health and would not be able to take care of all three husbands, so THAT'S why I said 'yes' to Antonio Banderas!"

    The moral of this story is: Whenever a woman lies, it's for a good and honorable reason, and in the best interest of others.
