A woman decided to have her portrait painted.
She told the artist, ”Paint me with diamond earrings, a diamond necklace, emerald bracelets, a ruby brooch, and gold Rolex.”
“But you’re not wearing any of those things,” replied the artist.
“I know,” she said. “It’s in case I should die before my husband. I am sure he will remarry right away, and I want his new wife to go crazy looking for the jewellery.”
Thanks to Tilly for this sparkly number.
Wonderful FUN! Thanks, GM. And Tilly!
Nancy, Tilly and I often share a good story!
Gm, Speaking of second marriages, here’s one for you!
A man walked out to the street and caught a taxi just going by. He got into the taxi, and the cabbie said, “Perfect timing. You’re just like “Brian!
Cabbie: “Brian Sullivan. He’s a guy who did everything right all the time. Like my coming along when you needed a cab, things happen like that to Brian Sullivan, every single time.”
Passenger: “There are always a few clouds over everybody.”
Cabbie: “Not Brian Sullivan. He was a terrific athlete. He could have won the Grand Slam at tennis. He could golf with the pros. He sang
like an opera baritone and danced like a Broadway star and you should have heard him play the piano. He was an amazing guy.”
Passenger: “Sounds like he was something really special.”
Cabbie: “There’s more. He had a memory like a computer. He remembered everybody’s birthday. He knew all about wine, which foods to order and which fork to eat them with. He could fix anything. Not like me. I change a fuse, and the whole street blacks out. But Brian Sullivan, he could do everything right.”
Passenger: “Wow. Some guy then.”
Cabbie: “He always knew the quickest way to go in traffic and avoid traffic jams. Not like me, I always seem to get stuck in them. But Brian, he never made a mistake, and he really knew how to treat a woman and make her feel good. He would never answer her back even if she was in the wrong; and his clothing was always immaculate, shoes highly polished too. He was the perfect man! He never made a mistake. No one could ever measure up to Brian Sullivan.”
Passenger: “An amazing fellow. How did you meet him?”
Cabbie: “Well, I never actually met Brian. He died. I’m married to his widow.”
Ha ha 🙂 Brilliant!
Nancy L, you must have a treasure chest full of stories, This is another brilliant one!
Love this one, plus Nancy’s!
Barbara, yes, they are both good ones.
You forgot the priceless Cezanne hanging on the wall behind her….
They did, didn’t they, Nick.
Wonderful mid-Christmas belly laughs!
kate, a day without laughter is a day wasted!
What a wonderfully nasty plan!
Col, a real sneaky one!
I suppose he could always claim she was cremated with the jewellery on! LOL. Hope you’re enjoying the season, Grannymar. Happy new year.
Thank you Maria, and the same to you and yours!
A woman with a plan! I like that! 🙂
Debra, a plan yes, but a nasty one!
Funny, but most of all I like your new header. Snow is beautiful from here. Dianne
Dianne, that header photo is from a couple of years ago. Thankfully we have none of the white stuff. In my book the only place for snow is on Christmas cards and pictures.
