By Mary Nella McLaughlin • August 2, 2014

An older Scottish woman lay dying in her bedroom as she called her husband to her side.

"Dear, there is a tin box on the dresser drawers. The contents are for you."

Taking down the box, the elderly man opens it to find two doilies and a stack of cash.

"What are these doilies about?"

"Well, when we first married my mother told me the key to a happy marriage was to knit doilies whenever I felt unhappy, angry, or disappointed in you."

"For all the doilies I sold!"
