    A fifteen year-old boy came home with a Porsche and his parents began to yell and scream,

    "Where did you get that car?"

    He calmly told them, "I bought it today."

    "With what money?" demanded his parents.

    We know what a Porsche costs.."

    "Well," said the! boy, "this one cost me fifteen dollars."

    So the parents began to yell even louder. "Who would sell a car like that for fifteen dollars?" they asked.

    "It was the lady up the street," said the boy. don't know her name-they just moved in. She saw me ride past on my bike and asked me if I wanted to buy a Porsche for fifteen dollars."

    "Oh my Goodness!," moaned the mother, "she must be a child abuser. Who knows what she will do next? John, you go right up there and see what's going on."

    So the boy's father walked up the street to the house where the lady lived and found her out in the yard calmly planting petunias! He introduced himself as the father of the boy to whom she had sold a Porsche for fifteen dollars and demanded to know why she did it.

    "Well," she said, "this morning I got a phone call from my husband. I thought he was on a business trip, but learned from a friend he has run off to Hawaii with his secretary and really doesn't intend to come back. He claimed he was stranded and asked me to sell his new Porsche and send him the money. So I did."

    (Are women good or what?)

    my sister did something very similar with her ex's powertools. True story. He ran off with another woman, and told sis to sell the tools and send him the money. She sold the whole shop of woodworking tools for something like $200! And felt she got at least a little revenge.

    Best wishes,

    My exhusband's would have had something worth selling! I'll have to remember this for next time... oh what, I'm never getting married again. 2 husbands = 3 marriages and 3 divorces. I'm done with that!!!

    Funny story. Teaches us all a lesson.

    You can decide for yourself what the lesson is. The way I see it, the thing to do when you move to a new house is plant peturnias.

    Hubby #1 (marriages 1 and 2) always said he knew when I was going to leave, I planted a garden or flower bed. So I don't know if petunia's are a good idea!

    Ever since watching Jimmy Stewart in "Rear Window" I've been a bit suspicious about flower beds.
