A Good Story

A group of Americans, retired teachers, recently went to France on a tour.

Among them was Robert Whiting, an elderly gentleman of 83.

When he arrived in Paris by plane and took a few minutes to locate his passport in his carry on at French Customs, the customs officer asked sarcastically, "You have been to France before, monsieur?"

Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France previously. "Then you should know enough to have your passport ready."

The American replied, "The last time I was here, I didn't have to show it."

"Impossible. Americans always have to show your passports on arrival in

The American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look. Then he
quietly explained.

"Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day in '44 to help liberate
this country, I couldn't find any Frenchmen to show it to."

This is a true story, 'Nuff SAID.
