    When you're an old married couple

    Sitting on the deck yesterday evening with Jo Anne.
    I was drinking beer, she was drinking Dr Pepper, when I said:
    "I love you so much, I don't know how I could ever live without you."
    She asked "Is that you, or the beer talking?"
    "It's me" I said, "talking to the beer."

    Had a similar conversation with Barb one evening.

    Barb: YOU DRINK BEER?

    Rich: YES

    Barb: HOW MANY BEERS A DAY?

    Rich: USUALLY ABOUT THREE

    Barb: HOW MUCH DO YOU PAY PER BEER?

    Rich: $5.00

    Barb: AND HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DRINKING?

    Rich: ABOUT 50 YEARS, I SUPPOSE

    Barb: SO A BEER COSTS $5 AND YOU HAVE THREE BEERS A DAY WHICH PUTS YOUR SPENDING EACH MONTH AT $450. IN ONE YEAR, IT WOULD BE APPROXIMATELY $5400 CORRECT?

    Rich: CORRECT

    Barb: IF IN 1 YEAR YOU SPEND $5400, NOT ACCOUNTING FOR INFLATION, THE PAST 50 YEARS PUTS YOUR SPENDING AT $270,000 CORRECT?

    Rich: CORRECT

    Barb: DO YOU KNOW THAT IF YOU DIDN’T DRINK SO MUCH BEER, THAT MONEY COULD HAVE BEEN PUT IN A STEP-UP INTEREST SAVINGS ACCOUNT AND AFTER ACCOUNTING FOR COMPOUND INTEREST FOR THE PAST 50 YEARS, YOU COULD HAVE NOW BOUGHT AN AIRPLANE?

    Rich: DO YOU DRINK BEER?

    Barb: NO.

    Rich: WHERE IS YOUR AIRPLANE?

    (I've heard both of them already....).

    Marriage is like a deck of playing cards.

    In the beginning it's all HEARTS and DIAMONDS...and in the end you wish you had a CLUB and a SPADE...
