Gifts For Mother
Three sons left home, went out on their own and prospered. Getting back together they discussed gifts they were able to give their elderly mother.
The second said, "I sent her a Mercedes with a driver."
Soon thereafter, mom sent out her letters of thanks:
"Adam," she wrote one son,
"The house you built is so big. I live in only one room,
but I have to clean the whole house."
"Jon," she wrote to another,
"I am too old to travel and stay at home most of the time,
so I rarely use the Mercedes. And the driver is so rude!"
"Dearest Gerald," she wrote to her third son,
"You have the good sense to know what your mother likes.
The chicken was absolutely delicious..."
