The Secret To A Happy Marriage

I thought this was a cute joke :slight_smile:

[LEFT][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=2]A man and woman had been married for more than 65 years. They had shared everything. They had talked about everything. They had kept no secrets from each other except that the little old woman had a shoe box in the top of her closet that she had cautioned her husband never to open or ask her about.[/SIZE][/FONT][/LEFT]
[LEFT]
[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=2]For all of these years, he had never thought about the box, but one day the little old woman got very sick and the doctor said she would not recover.[/SIZE][/FONT][/LEFT]
[LEFT]
[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=2]In trying to sort out their affairs, the little old man took down the shoe box and took it to his wife’s bedside.[/SIZE][/FONT][/LEFT]
[LEFT][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=2]She agreed that it was time that he should know what was in the box. When he opened it, he found two crocheted dolls and a stack of money totaling $95,000. He asked her about the contents.

She told me that if I ever got angry with you, I should[/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=2]just keep quiet and crochet a doll.”[/SIZE][/FONT][/LEFT]

[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=2]The little old man was so moved; he had to fight back tears. Only two precious dolls were in the box. She had only been angry with him two times in all those years of living and loving. He almost burst with happiness.[/SIZE][/FONT][/LEFT]

[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=2]“Honey,” he said, “that explains the doll, but what about all of this money? Where did it come from?”[/SIZE][/FONT][/LEFT]
[LEFT]
[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=2]“Oh,” she said, “that’s the money I made from selling the dolls.”[/SIZE][/FONT][/LEFT]

LOL, that’s funny!:yay:

I’m up days with the kids and Hubby has worked night shift thru’out our marriage—After almost 18 years together when someone asked how we manage to maintain a marriage while hardly ever seeing each other, the standard reply is, “We don’t have time to argue!” (Which isn’t true, but I’ve crotcheted one doll…looks like hubby and doubles as a pin cushion!):mrgreen:

Great joke … will have to send it to DH.

Too funny! I just sent it to my DMIL, DMOM, and my friend Mary. Thanks for the laugh!

Yes, I firmly believe that to be the truth, of course, I’ve not been online for most of the past year (health reasons, etc-but I’m okay, very, very blessed) and all of you newbies don’t know about the One and Only Lonnie…well, he’s the best husband in the world (the short & sweet version, LOL!) It’s late and I’ve not got the time for the entire story:heart:
