95th Birthday Gifts


Four brothers left home for college, and they became successful
doctors and lawyers.

One evening, they chatted after having dinner together. They discussed
the 95th birthday gifts

they were able to give their elderly mother who moved to Florida.

The first said, "You know I had a big house built for Mama."

The second said, "And I had a large theater built in the house."

The third said, "And I had my Mercedes dealer deliver an SL600 to her."

The fourth said, "You know how Mama loved reading the Bible and you know

she can't read anymore because she can't see very well. I met this

preacher who told me about a parrot who could recite the entire Bible.
It took

ten preachers almost 8 years to teach him. I had to pledge to contribute

$50,000 a year for five years to the church, but it was worth it.

Mama only has to name the chapter and verse, and the parrot will recite it."

The other brothers were impressed. After the celebration Mama sent out

her "Thank You" notes.

She wrote: Milton , the house you built is so huge that I live in only one

room, but I have to clean the whole house. Thanks anyway."

"Marvin, I am too old to travel. I stay home; I have my groceries

delivered, so I never use the Mercedes. The thought was good. Thanks."

"Michael, you gave me an expensive theater with Dolby sound and it can

hold 50 people, but all of my friends are dead, I've lost my hearing,

and I'm nearly blind. I'll never use it. Thank you for the gesture just the


"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 so
