"Ed and Norma..." 'Marvin Gross' (Source)

Marvin Gross is a Financial consultant currently residing in Western N.Y.
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  

  another  chance"

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! "

Ed  replied, 

"  Well, to tell you the truth I almost said something  when Norma fell out, 

But you  know, Fifty bucks is fifty bucks!  "
