Young naval student

Stormy Weather...

A young naval student was being put through the paces by an old sea captain.

"What would you do if a sudden storm sprang up on the starboard?" asked the captain.

"Throw out an anchor, sir." replied the naval student.

"What would you do if another storm sprang up aft?" asked the captain.

"Throw out another anchor, sir." answered the student.

"And if another terrific storm sprang up forward, what would you do?" asked the captain.

"Throw out another anchor." replied the student.

"Hold on," said the Captain. "Where are you getting all your anchors from?"

The naval student replied, "From the same place you're getting all of your storms, sir."
Have a great Thursday

Hoping you have a wonderful Saturday also, or Thursday! What is today anyway?

Loved the joke, I'm still smiling.

Gramma Ann, sorry about that, I think I had this ready to post on a Saturday and found I had posted something else to show up on the same day, so I went in just now and changed it to Thursday.
