Casey sent this to me as a forward the other day. I couldn’t help but share it. I can promise you that sent he shared this, he’s quoted “50 bucks is 50 bucks” on a couple of occasions.
And every year Bill would say,
” Blanche, I’d like to ride in that helicopter “
Blanche always replied,
” I know, Bill, but that helicopter ride is fifty bucks,
and fifty bucks is fifty bucks! “
One year Bill and Blanche went to the fair, and Bill said,
” Blanche, I’m 75 years old.
If I don’t ride that helicopter, I might never get another chance “
To this, Blanche replied,
” Bill 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 it’s fifty dollars. “
Bill and Blanche agreed and up they went.
The pilot did all kinds of fancy maneuvers, but not a word was heard.
He did his daredevil tricks,
but still not a word…
When they landed, the pilot turned to Bill 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 Blanche fell out,
but you know,
Fifty bucks is fifty bucks! “
