Neighbors of ours had a terrible disagreement over a patio they wanted for their
backyard. The wife had rather grand ideas, while the husband wanted costs kept to
a minimum. The wife won out, and the construction bill climbed higher and higher.
I dropped by one day, when the patio was near completion, and was surprised to
find the husband smiling from ear to ear as the workmen smoothed over the surface.
I remarked how nice it was to see a grin replace the frown he had been wearing lately.
“You see where they’re smoothing that cement?” he replied.
“I just threw my wife’s credit cards in there.” 😐😁😎

left him nothing except one thing. It was a note that read:
Dear my only son,
Thhaenrge! Tmhoe Bnaecykiyarsd
After he read the note, he finally got a smile on his face. What did his mom tell him in the note?
