Brighton Rotary News Jan 31 2020
Members: 7
Guests: Inbound Exchange Student Daniella from the Faro Islands
Smile: blush
A man had three sons. Murray became a teacher, Jeff a car salesman and Dan became a lawyer. The father raised the boys and paid for their education. Therefore, he asked each of his sons to show their appreciation for all he had done for them, that on his passing, each son was to put $1,000 in his casket. When the time came, Murray placed 10 crisp $100 bills in his father's casket. Jeff place 20 crisp $50 bills in the casket. Dan then put an envelop in the casket and quickly retrieved the $2,000 laying in the casket. When asked what he was doing, Dan explained that the envelop contained a cheque to their father for $3,000 and he was collecting his change.
