An elderly couple, married as childhood sweethearts, had recently moved back to the old neighbourhood.
Holding hands, they walked to their old school and found the old desk where Jerry had carved ‘I love Sally’.
On their way back home, a bag of money fell from an armoured car, landing at their feet. Sally picked it up and took it home. Once home, she counted $50,000.
Jerry said, “We’ve got to give it back.”
“Finders keepers!” Sally said, and put the money back in the bag and hid it in the attic.
The next day, police were canvassing the neighbourhood looking for the money and one knocked on their door. “Did you find a bag of money from an armoured car yesterday?”
“Nope,” replied Sally.
“She’s lying,” Jerry said. “She’s got it hid up in the attic, officer.”
“Oh, don’t mind him, he’s senile,” said Sally.
The officer turned to Jerry and said, “Why not tell me the story from the beginning.”
Jerry started, “Well, when Sally and I were walking home from school yesterday…”
Abruptly, the officer said, “Oh, gee, I’m really sorry to bother you, folks.”
