Joke of The Day

Unable to attend the funeral after his father died, a son
who lived far away called his brother and told him, "Do
something nice for Dad and send me the bill."
Later, he got a bill for $200.00, which he paid. The next
month, he got another bill for $200.00, which he also paid,
figuring it was some incidental expense.
Bills for $200.00 kept arriving every month, and finally
the man called his brother again to find out what was going on.
"Well," said the other brother, "you said to do something
nice for Dad. So I rented him a tuxedo." 

Quote of The Day

"Learn to appreciate the things you have before time makes you appreciate the things you had."
