    Thought Charlie might like this one:

    Four brothers left home for college, and became
    successful as a doctor,sales rep, lawyer, and insurance salesman andprospered. Some years
    later, they chatted after having dinner together. They discussed the
    gifts that they were able to give to their elderly mother who lived far
    away in another city.

    The first said, "I had a big house built for Mama."

    The second said, "I had a hundred thousand dollar
    theater built in the

    The third said, "I had my Mercedes dealer deliver
    her an SL600."

    The fourth said, "Listen to this. You know how Mama
    loved reading the Bible and you know she can't read it anymore because
    she can't see very well. I met this priest who told me about a parrot
    that can recite the entire Bible. It took twenty priests 12 years to teach him.
    I had to pledge to contribute $100,000 a year for twenty years to the
    church, but it was worth it. Mama just has to name the chapter and
    verse and the parrot will recite it."

    The other brothers were impressed.

    After the holidays Mom sent out her thank you notes.
    She wrote:

    "Milton, the house you built is so huge. I live in
    only one room, but I
    have to clean the whole house. Thanks anyway."

    "Marvin, I am too old to travel. I stay home, I have
    my groceries
    delivered, so I never use the Mercedes. The
    thought was good. Thanks."

    "Michael, you give me an expensive theater with
    Dolby sound, it could
    hold 50 people, but all my friends are dead, I've
    lost my hearing and
    I'm nearly blind. I'll never use it. Thank you for
    the gesture just the

    "Dearest Melvin, you were the only son to have the
    good sense to give a
    little thought to your gift. The chicken was
    delicious. Thank you."
