An elderly couple were celebrating their 60th anniversary. They had married as childhood sweethearts and moved back to their old neighbourhood after they retired.
Holding hands, they walked back to their old school. It was not locked, so they entered and found the old desk they’d shared, where Jerry had carved the words ‘I love you, Sally’.
On their way back home, a bag of money fell out of an armoured car, practically landing at their feet. Sally quickly picked it up and, not sure what to do with it, they took it home. There, she counted the money and found that it was $50,000!
Jerry said: “We’ve got to give it back.” But Sally put the money back in the bag, hid it in their attic and said: “Finders keepers.”
The next day, two police officers were canvassing the neighbourhood looking for the money and knocked on their door. The officer said: “Pardon me, did either of you find a bag that fell out of an armoured car yesterday?”
Sally shook her head. Jerry said: “She’s lying. She hid it up in the attic.”
Sally said: “Don’t believe him, he’s getting senile.”
The agents turned to Jerry and began to question him. One said: “Tell us the story from the beginning.”
Jerry said: “Well, when Sally and I were walking home from school yesterday.”
The first police officer turned to his partner and said: “We’re outta here!”
