[Found over at Read My Lips...]

An elderly married couple who were childhood sweethearts and had settled down in their old neighborhood, were celebrating their fiftieth wedding anniversary. They walked down the street to their old school. There, they held hands as they found the old desk they'd shared and where he had carved, "I love you, Sally."

On their way back home, an armored car drove by and a bag of money fell out of the back, practically at their feet! Sally quickly picked it up, but they didn't know what they should do with it so they took it home. They counted all the money, and found it was fifty thousand dollars. The husband says, "We've got to give it back."

But Sally said, "No, we've worked hard all our lives for precious little. Besides, they'll be covered by insurance - so, finders keepers." And she put the money back in the bag and hid it up in their attic.

The next day, two FBI men are going door-to-door in the neighborhood looking for the money and show up at their home. They say, "Pardon me, but did either of you find any money that fell out of an armored car yesterday?"

She says, "No."

The husband says, "She's lying. She hid it up in the attic."

She says, "Don't believe him, he's getting senile."

But the agents sit the man down and begin to question him. One says, "Tell us the story from the beginning."

The old man says, "Well, when Sally and I were walking home from school yesterday..."

The FBI guy looks at his partner and says, "Let's get out of here."
