WELCOME to FRIDAY MARCH 25, 2022
Here’s The Story…
Richard was a wise old man, he had retired and had bought a modest home near a junior high school. He spent the first few weeks of his retirement in peace, quiet and contentment. Then a new school year began. The very next afternoon three young boys, full of youthful, after-school enthusiasm, came down his street, beating merrily on every trash can they encountered.
beating every trash can. The crashing percussion continued day after day, until finally Richard decided it was time to take some action. The next afternoon, he walked out to meet the young ‘percussionists’ as they banged their way down the street. Stopping them, he said, ‘You kids are a lot of fun. I like to see you express your exuberance like that. In fact, I used to do the same thing when I was your age. Will you do me a favor? I’ll give you each a dollar if you’ll promise to come around every day and do your thing.’ The kids were elated and continued to do a bang-up job on the trashcans. After a few days, the old-timer greeted the kids again, but this time he had a sad smile on his face. ‘This recession is really putting a big dent in my income,’ he told them. ‘From now on, I’ll only be able to pay you 50 cents to beat on the cans.’ The noisemakers were obviously displeased, but they accepted his offer and they continued their afternoon ruckus. A few days later, Richard, the wily retiree, approached them again as they drummed their way down the street. ‘Look,’ he said, ‘I haven’t received my Social Security check yet, so I’m not going to be able to give you more than 25 cents. Will that be, okay?’ ‘Only a lousy quarter?’ the drum leader exclaimed. ‘If you think we’re going to waste our time, beating these cans around for a quarter, you’re nuts! No way, mister. We quit!’
Richard, the clever old man, enjoyed peace and tranquility for the rest of his days.

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
Larry’s barn burned down and his wife, Susan, called the insurance company.
Susan spoke to the insurance agent and said, “We had that barn insured for
fifty thousand, and I want my money.” The agent replied, “Whoa there, just a
minute. Insurance doesn’t work quite like that. An independent adjuster will
assess the value of what was insured, and then we’ll provide you with a new
barn of similar worth.” There was a long pause, and then Susan replied,
“If that’s how it works, then I want to cancel the life insurance policy on my husband.” 😳
