A woman offers a brand-new car for sale for a price of ten dollars.
A man answers the ad, but he's slightly disbelieving. "What's the catch?" he inquires.
"No catch," the woman answers. "My husband died, and in his will he asked that the car be sold and the money go to his secretary."
Little Mikey and his family were having Sunday dinner at his grandmother's house. Everyone was seated around the table as the food was being served. When Little Mikey received his plate, he started eating right away.
"Mikey! Please wait until we say our prayer," said his mother.
"I don't need to," the boy replied.
"Of course, you do," his mother insisted through gritted teeth. "We always say a prayer before eating at our house."
"That's at our house," Mikey explained. "But this is Grandma's house and she knows how to cook."
I didn't know if my granddaughter had learned her colors yet, so I decided to test her. I would point out something and ask what color it was. She would tell me, and always she was correct. But it was fun for me, so I continued.
At last, she headed for the door, saying sagely, "Grandma, I think you should try to figure out some of these yourself!"
