** A cowgirl, who is visiting Texas from Arkansas, walks into a
bar*and orders three mugs of Bud. She sits in the back of the
room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn. When she finishes
them, she comes back to the bar and orders three more.

**The bartender approaches and tells the cowgirl, "You know, a
mug*goes flat after I draw it. It would taste better if you
bought*one at a time."

**The cowgirl replies, "Well, you see, I have two sisters. One
is*in Australia, the other is in Dublin. When we all left our home
in*Arkansas, we promised that we'd drink this way to remember
the*days when we drank together. So I'm drinking one beer for
each*of my sisters and one for myself."

**The bartender admits that this is a nice custom, and leaves it
there. The cowgirl becomes a regular in the bar, and always
drinks the same way. She orders three mugs and drinks them in
turn. One day, she comes in and only orders two mugs. All the
regulars take notice and fall silent. When she comes back to the
bar for the second round, the bartender says, "I don't want to
intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my condolences on
your loss."

*The cowgirl looks quite puzzled for a moment, then a light dawns
in her eyes and she laughs.**"Oh, no, everybody's just fine," she
explains, "It's just that my husband and I joined the Baptist Church and
I had to quit drinking."

**"Hasn't affected my sisters though."
