Doilies

 

LOL bubble

There was once a man and woman who were married for more than 60 years. They shared everything. They talked about everything. They kept no  secrets from each other except that the little old woman had a shoebox in the top of her closet. She cautioned her husband never to open or ask her about.

For all of these years, he never thought about the box, but one day the little old woman got very sick and the doctor said she would not
recover. In trying to sort out their affairs, the little old man took down the shoe box and took it to his wife's bedside. She agreed that it was time that he should know what was in the box.

When he opened it, he found two crocheted doilies and a stack of money totaling $50,000. He asked her about the contents. "When we were to be
married," she said, "my grandmother told me the secret of a happy marriage was to never argue. She told me that if I ever got angry with you, I
should just keep quiet and crochet a doily."

The little old man was so moved, he had to fight back tears. Only two precious doilies 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.

"Honey," he said, "that explains the doilies, but what about all of  this money? Where did it come from?"

"Oh," she said, "that's the money I made from selling the doilies."
