The Shoe Box

 A man and a woman had been married for more than 60 years.  They had shared everything.  They had talked about everything.  They had kept no secrets from each other except that the little old woman had a shoe box in the top of her closet that she had cautioned her husband never to open or ask about.  

For all of these years, he had never thought about the box.  But one day, the little old woman got very sick and the doctor said she would not 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 that it was time that he should know what was in the box.  When he opened it, he found two crocheted dolls and a stack of money totaling $95,000! 

He asked her about the contents.  “When we were to be married,” she said, “My grandmother told me the secret of a happy marriage was to never argue.  She told me that if I ever got angry with you, I should just keep quiet and crochet a doll.”  

The little old man was so moved that he had to fight back the tears.  Only two precious dolls 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 happiness.  “Honey,” he said, “That explains the doll but what about all of this money?  Where did it come from?”  

“Oh,” she said, “That’s the money I made from selling the dolls”.

Inner Peace Award – YAY

I’m so pigstatic! My friend Melody at http://donkeywhispererfarm2010.wordpress.com gave me an award. Have I told you lately how much this little piggy loves awards? My tail is wagging so fast from being happy that I may take flight.  I’m especially ecstatic because I haven’t received this one yet – happy piggy dance!  Happy piggy dance!

You must go and check out Melody’s blog.  Do you know that she has donkeys?  Not just any donkeys but a mammoth donkey and a mini donkey.  They are so cool!  And, it looks like she has so much fun with them.  She is a “donkey whisperer” like mommy is a “oinker whisperer”.  Be sure to give her a visit and tell her that Bacon sent you 🙂

 

There is only one rule when accepting this award.  When you pass the award on, please share some kind words with that person.  Simple enough, right?  The only hard thing is just picking a few people.  If it was up to me, I would pick ALL of my friends because ALL of you have touched me and my family with your friendship.

Your blog states “All about our truly best friend” and it’s right.  You are truly a great and wonderful friend to this little oinker.  I love your sense of humor – it reminds me so much of my own.  We are two happening four legged guys out for a great time in making our humans smile and laugh.  I think we both succeed.  Love you Easy!

 

Not only is there a barky thing, there’s a purr thing here too!  Their mom is so funny and wonderful.  And, she is smart!  She guessed my new game show Name that Business/Product in like 15 seconds flat.  That’s fast!  What’s the best thing – she loves ANIMALS – all of them… even this spoiled little oinker.  Love ya’ll Caren, Dakota and Cody!

 

WOW!  Sharon is super awesome.  She does what is called aussiegurumi.  That’s a big word for this little piggy so I’m going to tell you in my language what she does.  She does awestruck magic!  This past weekend she posted a 1/2 inch high picnic basket full of apples and a banana that she crocheted!  And she even included an ant because you know what picnic is without ants, right?  She is totally amazing.  And, rumor is she might be working on something to resemble this little rotten pig… just a rumor 🙂  Love you Sharon!
