Three old friends went to lunch just to forget their woes. When they saw a neighbor and her daughter at a near-by table they all wished Happy Holidays. When the ladies told their waiter they wanted separate checks, the waiter told them - with a big smile - that a gentle- man had paid their bill. The ladies were very sur- prised and shed a few tears and gave hugs in thanks. It was a very nice "Merry Christmas". Thank You Bill Maske...
