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 time that he should know what was in the box.

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 .

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