Monday Merriment

THE BOTTLE OF WINE

 For all of us who are married, were married, wish
 you were married, or wish you weren't married, this
 is something to smile about the next time you see a
 bottle of wine:
 
 Sally was driving home from one of her business
 trips in Northern Arizona when she saw an elderly
 Navajo woman walking on the side of the road.
 
 As the trip was a long and quiet one, she stopped
 the car and asked the Navajo woman if she would like
 a ride.
 
 With a silent nod of thanks, the woman got into
 the car.
 
 Resuming the journey, Sally tried in vain to make
 a bit of small talk with the Navajo woman. The old
 woman just sat silently, looking intently at
 everything she saw, studying every little detail,
 until she noticed a brown bag on the seat next to
 Sally.
 
 'What in bag?' asked the old woman.
 
 Sally looked down at the brown bag and said, 'It's
 a bottle of wine. I got it for my husband.'
 
 The Navajo woman was silent for another moment or
 two. Then speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder,
 she said:
 
 'Good trade.....'
