Everyone has a price

Last night we had the in-laws over for dinner. My father-in-law asks my son if he'll sell him his prized, worn, must have in order to sleep lovey bear blanket. The boy looks at him as if he's nuts when he asks. I'll buy it for 50 cents. No? Two dollars? No? Then he takes out a $100 bill and lets my son hold it. Then he asks, $100? The boy answers do you want the brown one or the white one (he has two)?

No, my father-in-law likes to tease.

Grandparents can teach important lessons. Once at a family gathering, somebody asked me what I wanted for Christmas and I told them I didn't know.

My great grandmother told me, "Never say something like that, if you can't think of anything else, tell them you would like a million dollars."
