A couple was celebrating their golden wedding anniversary. Their
domestic tranquillity had long been the talk of the town.
"What a peaceful & loving couple!" A local newspaper reporter was
inquiring as to the secret of their long and happy marriage.
"Well, it dates back to our honeymoon," explained the man. "We visited
the Grand Canyon and took a trip down to the bottom on
the canyon by horse. We hadn't gone too far when my wife's horse stumbled.
My wife quietly said, 'That's once'."
"We proceeded a little further and the horse stumbled again.
Once more my wife quietly said, 'That's twice.' "We hadn't gone a
half-mile when the horse stumbled the third time. My wife quietly
removed a revolver from her purse and shot the horse dead.
"I started an angry protest over her treatment to the horse, while I
was shouting; She looked at me, and quietly said,
'That's once'. "
"And we lived happily ever after."
