I am going through the house this weekend trying to stow things that are in the way of retiling the floors here. Think of it, everything that is on the floor of your house has to be picked up and moved to one side, then back.
I did find my girl Lettie's cremains, and her urn. However, it's nothing like Benny's Genie.
A young man named Benny was a real party animal.
He lived for the good times of wine, women, and song. He wished he could continue his life style forever.
A genie suddenly appeared before him and made him the following wish: Benny would remain forever young if he would never shave.
If he were ever to shave the genie would return and transform him into an urn.
For several hundred years Benny partied every night.
Needless to say, Benny's beard became quite long and cumbersome.
After a while Benny thought that enough time had elapsed and the genie had certainly forgotten about the bargain.
So one evening before heading off to another party, Benny shaved off his beard.
Instantly the genie appeared and transformed into an urn.
The moral of this story: A Benny shaved is a Benny urned.........
