The Elderly Couple

An elderly couple were on a cruise and it was really stormy.
They were standing on the back of the boat watching the moon, when a wave came up and washed the old woman overboard.

They searched for days and couldn’t find her, so the captain sent the old man back to shore with the promise that he would notify him as soon as they found something.

Three weeks went by and finally the old man got a fax from the boat. It read: “Sir, sorry to inform you, we found your wife dead at the bottom of the ocean We hauled her up to the deck and attached to her butt was an oyster and in it was a pearl worth $50,000 . . please advise.”

The old man faxed back: “Send me the pearl and re-bait the trap.”

😯 Have a great weekend 😯

    This is eloquent story- well written definition of today: “cost of love” was defined clearly here, yet such truth frightens – forces to search for a shelter in the fairy tales, where morality remains above the pearls till now.

    I bet when the News Media asked the old guy about the pearl, he clammed up.

    After 6 weeks, the old man started to think, “Maybe the oysters need a fresher butt now.”

    Thanks a lot for making me blog of the week. I really appreciate it.
