2 Doilies

There once was a and a who had been married for more than 60 years. They talked about everything. They kept no secrets from each other… except that the old had a shoe box in the top of her closet that she cautioned her husband never to open it or ask her about it.

For all these years he had never thought about the box, but one day the little old woman got very sick and the said she would never 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 it was that he should know what was in the box.

When he opened it he found 2 beautifully crocheted doilies and a stack of totaling over $25,000. He asked her about the unusual contents.

“When we were 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 back . 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 and happiness.

“Sweetheart,” he said… “that explains the doilies, but what about all this money? Where did it all come from?”

Oh,” she said, ” that’s the money I made from selling the doilies.”
