Thinking About Drier Places...

A rainy day in Waterloo gave me a much "drier" idea.

Two camels were slowly marching through a large, dry desert. Time only inched forward, and the camels often found themselves extremely bored. They were tired of simply basking in the they decided to look for something new.

One early morning, something caught their eye. Through the dense air, they could see someone playing a game, but they didn't know what it was. As they approached, the image appeared to be fading. The first camel said "We must be hallucinating!" -- yet his friend refused to agree. They approached further, and further. Eventually the image faded. What was this game?

The camels contemplated for days, but found no clues. They were beginning to lose hope.

Then, all of a sudden, the image came back. They could see it quite clearly in the distance, but still couldn't make out what it was. The camels moved quickly towards it, despite weakness in their legs from a long haul the previous day. They pushed on and on. Finally, they reached it...a small table and two men....playing a game they called "chess". be continued!!!
