North Canton, Ohio.
Four brothers left home for college. They became
successful doctors, and lawyers and prospered.
Some years later, they chatted after having
dinner together. They discussed the gifts that 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 dollar
theater built in the house."
The third said, "I had my Mercedes dealer deliver
her an SL600 with chauffeur."
The fourth said, "Listen to this. You know how Mama
loved reading the Bible.
And you know, too, she can't read anymore because
she can't see very well.
I met this Rabbi who told me about a parrot that can
recite the entire Old Testament.
It took twenty rabbis 12 years to teach him. I had
to pledge to contribute $100,000 a year for twenty years
to his temple. Let me tell you...it was worth it.
All Mama has to do is name a chapter and verse and
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 huge. 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...and the driver you
hired is a Nazi. The thought was good. Thanks.

Menachim, You give me an expensive theater with
Dolby sound, it could hold 50 people, but all 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 same.

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.
