Saturday’s smiles

A mother took her four teenagers camping.

They pitched their tend, cooked dinner then settled down for the night and went to sleep.

A few hours later, the mother awoke, nudged her offspring and said, “Look up and tell me what you see”.

The elder daughter said, “I see a fantastic panorama of countless stars”.

The mother said, “And what does that tell you?”

The daughter pondered for a moment, then said: “Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo.

The middle daughter, not wanting to be outdone piped up and said, “Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three.

The third daughter added her piece, “Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful and that we are small and insignificant.”

The youngest daughter said, “Meteorologically, the clear sky signals we’ll have a beautiful day tomorrow. Why? – What does it tell you, Mum?”

The mother was quiet for a moment then said: “Someone has stolen our tent.”
