The story is told of 2 old friends who bumped into one another on the street one day. One of them looked forlorn, almost on the verge of tears. His friend asked, “What has the world done to you, my old friend?” The sad fellow said, “Let me tell you. Three weeks ago, my uncle died and left me $40,000.

That’s a pot of money.

But, two weeks ago, a cousin I never even knew died, and left me $85,000 free and clear.

Sounds like you’ve been blessed.

“You don’t understand. He interrupted. Last week my great aunt passed away and I inherited a quarter and a million.

Now he was really confused. Then why do you look so glum.

“This week. . ..nothing.”
