Dewey heard that his father, grandfather and great-grandfather had all walked on water on their 21st birthdays.
So, on his 21st birthday, Dewey and his big brother Damon, headed out to the lake. “If they did it, I can too!” he insisted.
When Dewey and Damon arrived at the lake, they rented a canoe and began paddling. When they got to the middle of the lake, Dewey stepped off of the side of the boat… and nearly drowned.
Furious and somewhat embarrassed, he and Damon headed for home.
When Dewey arrived back at the family home, he asked his grandmother for an explanation. “Grandma, why can’t I walk on water like my father, and his father, and his father before him?”
His sweet old grandmother took Dewey by the hand, looked into his eyes, and explained, “That’s because your father, grandfather, and great-grandfather were born in January, You were born in June, dear.”

I’d heard a different version years ago where the old-timers show the young one where the stepping stones that are just beneath the surface are.
Thank you, Daniel.

LOL! I like jokes that make me think a moment to get the punchline.
