Hope is a funny thing. It comes so easy to some people--maybe too easy. Milton Berle told a story about those kinds of people, about how hope can triumph over good sense.



Four widows were playing cards in the retirement home they lived in. A good-looking older fellow walks in, bags under each arm. "What’s a good-looking man like you doing here?" one asks.



"I’m moving in," he says. "Oh," says another. "Where ya from?"



"I’ve been in the can the last fifteen years. "



"The can?" they ask.



"Yeah, the can, the clink, the slammer, the state penitentiary."



"Oh," says one. "What did you do?"



"I murdered my wife. I cut her up and buried her in the back yard." There follows a long pause, and then one of them pipes up:



"Oh, so you’re single!"


We must be careful not to put our hope in the wrong thing.
