4 Brothers left home from College,& they became successful Doctors Lawyers & prospered.
Some years later they chatted after Dinner together & discussed their gifts for the Holidays they were able to give to their Elderly Mother who lived far away in another City.
The First Said 'I had a big house built for Mama'
The Second Said 'I Had a hundred Thousand Theatre built in the house'
The Third Said 'I had me Mercedes Dealer deliver an SL600 to her'
The Fourth Said ' You know how Mama loved to read the Bible, & you know that she can't read any more because she can't see very well. I met a Preacher who told me about a Parrot that can recite the Whole Bible. It took 20 Preachers 12 years to teach him. I had to pledge $100,000 a year for 20 years to the Church, but it was worth it.Mama just has to name the Chapter & Verse & the Parrot will recite it.
The Other Brothers were Impressed.
After the Holidays Mom sent out her Thank You notes. She wrote:
'Milton, the House you built is so Large. I only live in One Room, but I have to Clean the Whole House, But Thank You anyway'
'Marvin,I am too old to travel,I stay at home I have my Groceries delivered, so I never use the Mercedes. The Thought was good. Thanks'.
'Michael, You gave me an expensive Theatre with Dolby Sound,It could hold 50 people, but all my Friends are dead, I've lost my Hearing & I'm nearly blind. I'll never use it. Thank you for the gesture anyway'
Dearest Melvin 'You were the only son to have the good sense to give a little thought to your Gift'.
'The Chicken was delicious.Thank You'
