**Last Christmas, Grandpa was feeling his age, and found that shopping for Christmas gifts had become too difficult.  So he decided to send checks to everyone instead.  In each card he wrote, “Buy your own present!”  and mailed them early.  He enjoyed the usual flurry of family festivities, and it was only after the holiday that he noticed that he had received very few cards in return.  Puzzled over this, he went into his study, intending to write a couple of his relatives and ask what had happened.  It was then, as he cleared off his cluttered desk that he got his answer.  Under a stack of papers, he was horrified to find the gift checks which he had forgotten to enclose with the cards.

** A couple were in a busy shopping center just before Christmas. The wife suddenly noticed that her husband was missing and as they had a lot to so, she call him on his mobile. The wife said, “Where are you, you know we have lots to do.” He said, “You remember the jewelers we went into about 10 years ago and you fell in love with that diamond necklace? I could not afford it at the time and I said that one day I would get it for you?” Little tears stared to flow down her cheek and she got all choked up… “Yes, I do remember that shop,” she replied. “Well, I am in the gun shop right next door to that.”
