Today Marvin shares a story about an Ed & Norma , an elderly couple wanting to take a helicopter ride
for one of the things left on their bucket list...enjoy!
Ed and Norma
Ed and his wife Norma go to the state fair every year,
And every year Ed would say,
" Norma, I'd like to ride in that helicopter "
Norma always replied, "I know Ed,
but that helicopter ride is fifty bucks,
And fifty bucks is fifty bucks!"
One year Ed and Norma went to
the fair, and Ed said,
"Norma, I'm 75 years old.
If I don't ride that helicopter, I might never get
To this, Norma replied,
" Ed, that helicopter ride is fifty bucks,
and fifty bucks is fifty bucks"
The pilot overheard the couple and said,
" Folks I'll make you a deal. I'll take the both of
you for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and
don't say a word I won't charge you a penny!
But if you say one word its fifty dollars."
Ed and Norma agreed and up they went.
The pilot did all kinds of fancy
maneuvers, but not a word was heard.
He did his daredevil tricks over and over again,
But still not a word...
When they landed, the pilot turned to Ed and
said, "By golly, I did everything I could to get you
to yell out, but you didn't. I'm impressed! "
" Well, to tell you the truth I almost said something when Norma fell out,
But you know, Fifty bucks is fifty bucks! "
