It's Funday ~ AM

A  man and woman had been married for more than 60 years. They had shared  everything. They had talked about everything. They had kept no secrets  from each other except that the little old woman had a shoe box in the  top of her closet that she had cautioned her husband never to open or  ask her about.

For all of these years, he had never thought about  the box, but one day the little old woman got very sick and the doctor  said she would not recover.

In trying to sort out their affairs,  the little old man took down the shoe box and took it to his wife's  bedside. She agreed that it was time that he should know what was in the  box. When he opened it, he found two crocheted dolls and a stack of  money totaling $95,000.

He asked her about the contents.

"When  we were to be married,' she said, ' my grandmother told me the secret  of a happy marriage was to never argue. She told me that if I ever got  angry with you, I should just keep quiet and crochet a doll.'

The  little old man was so moved; he had to fight back tears. Only two  precious dolls were in the box. She had only been angry with him two times in all those years of living and loving. He almost burst with happiness.

'Honey,' he said, 'that explains the dolls, but what about all of this money? Where did it come from?'

'Oh,' she said, 'that's the money I made from selling the dolls.
