Still Smiling: Last week at Longhorns almost all
had left when the Server came up to me and said,
Do you know Shirley? I said Yes. Well we don’t
have any money from her. Ugh! Ok! Here is my credit
card, use it. He came back and handed me a receipt.
Standing there PONDERING the situation I leaned over
to sign the ticket. Moved a napkin to make room and
Yikes! There under Shirley’s napkin was a pile of money!
We both started laughing! A happy ending!
