Two Doilies

There once was a man and a woman who had been married for more than 60 years. They talked about everything. They kept no secrets from each other... except that the old woman had a shoe box in the top of her closet that she cautioned her husband never to open it or ask her about it.

For all these years he had never thought about the box, but one day the little old woman got very sick and the doctor said she would never recover.

In trying to sort out their affairs the little old man took down the shoe box and took it to his wife's bedside. She agreed it was time that he should know what was in the box.

When he opened it, he found two beautifully crocheted doilies and a stack of money totaling over $25,000. He asked her about the unusual contents.

"When we were married," she said, "My grandmother told me the secret of a happy marriage was to never argue. She told me that if I ever got angry with you, I should just keep quiet and crochet a doily."

The little old man was so moved, he had to fight back tears. Only two precious doilies were in the box. She had only been angry with him two times in all those years of living and loving. He almost burst with joy and happiness. "Sweetheart," he said... "That explains the doilies, but what about all this money? Where did it all come from?"

Oh," she said, "That's the money I made from selling the doilies."

Puppies for Sale

A shop owner placed a sign above his door that said: "Puppies for Sale."

A young boy saw the sign and approached the owner. "How much do you want for the puppies?" he asked.

The store owner replied, "Anywhere from $30 to $50."

The little boy pulled some change out of his pocket. "I have $2.37," he said, "Can I please look at them?"

The shop owner smiled and whistled. Out of the kennel came Lady, who ran down the aisle of the shop followed by five teeny, tiny balls of fur. One puppy was lagging way behind the others.

Immediately the little boy singled out the lagging, limping puppy and said, "What's wrong with that little dog?"

The shop owner explained that the vet had examined the little puppy and discovered that he didn't have a hip socket. It would always limp, it would always be lame.

The little boy became excited. "That's the puppy I want to buy."

The shop owner said, "No, I can't really sell you that puppy. If you really want him, I'll just give him to you."

The little boy got quite upset. He looked straight into the store owner's eyes, pointed his finger and said: "I don't want you to give him to me. That little puppy is worth every bit as much as the other ones and I'll pay full price. In fact, I'll give you $2.37 now and 50 cents a week until I have him paid for."

The shop owner countered, "You really don't want to buy this little dog. He is never going to be able to run, jump and play like the other puppies."

To his surprise, the little boy reached down and rolled up his pant leg to reveal a badly twisted, crippled left leg supported by a big metal brace.

He looked up at the shop owner and softly replied, "Well, I don't run so well myself, and this little puppy will need someone who understands."

Dear Clients & Friends,

So many of us have pets that we love and cherish. On National Pet Day (today), we have an excuse to lavish attention on them and find ways to improve the lives of abandoned or mistreated animals.

When it comes to beloved and cherished human beings, there is a way to improve their lives too. It's called adequate insurance. When we take steps to plan for our loved ones in the event of disease, disability or death, we are showing that we care about them.

I would be happy to discuss your insurance needs with you. Let's get together and review your policies or determine what you need.

Today is National Pet Day!

Who doesn't love their pets? It must be human nature to surround ourselves with some of God's creatures. It helps us feel alive and, according to recent research, it helps us stay healthy.

It's natural to care for our pets, but on National Pet Day, it's time to look after animals that have not received the kind of tender care they deserve.

What can you do to recognize this important holiday? Obviously, if you're looking for a pet, make sure you check out the pet shelter near you for an opportunity to adopt one. (Check out the video below for tips on getting the right dog for you and your family).

But what if you've already got your hands full with a pet or pets in your home? You can take supplies to the pet shelter. Let those who work with animals know you too are concerned with their welfare. Call the shelter to ask what supplies are most needed.

New Medicare ID Numbers

In order to prevent fraud and identity theft, the federal government has passed a law requiring the removal of SSN's from all Medicare cards by April of 2019. A new Medicare Beneficiary Number (MBI) will replace the SSN-based claim number. This change is designed to protect all Medicare card holders.

As a result, current Medicare Beneficiaries will be receiving new cards beginning this month. The new cards have an 11-character, randomly assigned number. The card is still red, white and blue, but it no longer includes a Social Security number, gender, signature or other personal information that could compromise a Medicare beneficiary's identity.

If you live in Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia, you are scheduled to receive your new Medicare ID card between April and June. Those living in most other states (including Georgia) will start receiving their new cards after June 2018.
