An elderly man living in Texas calls his son in New York and says: “I hate to ruin your day, but your mother and I are divorcing.”
The son crys out, “Dad, what are you talking about? You can’t divorce Mom after all these years. That’s crazy. You love her.”
“It may be crazy, says the old man, but I am going to tell her this Thursday, on Thanksgiving Day. It will be the last one we spend together.”
Frantically, the son calls his sister and she explodes. “They are not getting a divorce! You and I are flying to Texas tomorrow to talk sense into Dad! I don’t care if it is Thanksgiving week.”
Next the sister calls her father and demands, “Don’t you dare tell Mom a thing until we get there tomorrow.”
The old man agrees, then hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. “OK,” he says with a smile. “They are coming for Thanksgiving, and paying their own way. Now what do we tell them for Christmas?”
