The Ballad of Three Rivers

Ol' Sourdough Pete was sitting down to eat, when a stranger came long.
"Hello!" says he, if you don't mind my company, them bacon and beans smell mighty tempting."

"Why sure," says Pete. "There's plenty to eat, sit yourself down and welcome!"

"Now that we're done with this fine meal I guess I'll help you with these dishes," says the stranger.

"I'll have you know," says Pete, "These dishes are cleaned by Three Rivers !!"

And with that Pete sets them out and shouts, "Here Three Rivers !!"

Well... The bushes start shaking and out bounds the biggest dog you ever did see!!

Without missing a beat he's going for his treat, and licks them dishes sparkling clean!!

The moral of my story, goes like this: Don't eat with a man that's tamed Three Rivers.....
Unless you're REALLY HUNGRY!!!
