    Five whole dollars? He must have finally sold his Studebaker stock.

    Burl: last of the big spenders.

    Oh wow, a mystery…….

    A card that says “to my wife…”

    signed “your husband Burl.”


    _Of course she’s not sure who sent it.

    It could be anybody.
    A girl can’t be too careful.


    But she’ll cash the check… I mean, careful is one thing but let’s not be stupid.

    One thing I love…. and actually, I’ve seen couples do this in real life…..


    Her birthday gift is a check….
    drawn on THEIR joint checking account.
    Oooh thanks.


    If she wants to spend $5 on herself some other time, is she supposed to ask him if it’s all right?
    Or wait till her next birthday?

    A floor-length flannel teddy. We wouldn’t want to get Burl all hot ‘n’ bothered now would we? He might have a heart attack and that would be the end of the $5 cheques, a significant revenue stream.
    And in Burl’s case to (terribly) paraphrase Everett Dirksen, $5 here, $5 there and pretty soon you’re talking about real money.

    Her BD is 9 days after Valentine’s Day……..Cha Ching….ding…ding ding……..Burl hits the jackpot with 90% off VD merchandise for her. And some of the money he saves goes to her monetary gift!
    .
    And that card says it all: “I have little else to give”.
    .
    Ain’t that the truth.

    What makes the LEAST sense today is the Rhyme, which (as she read it) requires the inclusion of her sister’s name (not hers). I won’t say anything about the nightwear (as that IS what I would expect Joy to wear and . . . .)

    And did HE come up with the heart shaped cookies and the little bouquet? or did she buy them, or were they artificial flowers stored in the garage?

    Now he can watch her BAKE cookies in her sexy floor length teddy… Maybe she’ll use the 5$ toward it.

    The warning on the big heart on the wall says it all. I think the M.I.T. has finally graduated. I notice the envelope is addressed to Mrs. Burl Penny. I have no doubt he used an old envelope addressed to her. No way would he spring for a stamp unless he stole it from his workplace.

    The check will bounce.

    Watch the reaction at the bank when Joy tries to deposit the check back into the account it’s drawn on … they’ll never be able to explain to her why she can’t do that!
