Danger - Old Man

An older, white haired man walked into a jewelry store one Friday evening
with a beautiful young gal at his side. He told the jeweler he was looking
for a special ring for his girlfriend. The jeweler looked through his stock
and brought out a $5,000 ring and showed it to him.

The old man said, "I don't think you understand, I want something VERY
special." At that statement, the jeweler went to his special stock and
brought another ring over.

"Here's a stunning ring at only $40,000," the jeweler said. The young
lady's eyes sparkled and her whole body trembled with excitement. The old
man, seeing this said, "We'll take it." The jeweler asked how payment
would be made and the old man stated, by check. "I know you need to make
sure my check is good, so I'll write it now and you can call the bank Monday
to verify the funds and I'll pick the ring up Monday afternoon," he said.

Monday morning, a very teed-off jeweler phoned the old man.

"There's no money in that account."

"I know," said the old man, "but can you imagine the weekend I had?"

Some seniors still have a very sharp mind.....I know a couple....smile.
