* My Three Sons!

Hopefully we are done with these hurricanes…

Enjoy the cute story below- and let’s get back to finding new joints to stuff our faces at…

A father told each of his 3 sons when he sent them off to college, “I feel it’s my duty to provide you with the best possible education, and you do not owe me anything for that. However, I want you to appreciate it. As a token, please each put $1,000 into my coffin when I die.”
And so it happened. His sons became a doctor, a lawyer and a financial planner, each very successful financially. When their father’s time had come, and they saw their father in the coffin, they remembered his wish.
First, the doctor put 10 newly printed crisp $100 bills onto the chest of the deceased.
Then, the financial planner also put $1,000 there in 20 newly printed crisp $50 bills.
Finally, it was the heartbroken lawyer’s turn. He reached into his pocket, took out his checkbook, wrote a check for $3,000, put it into his father’s coffin, and took the $2,000 cash.
The lawyer is now running for Congress.

      The series originally featured William Frawley as the boys’ live-in maternal grandfather, William Michael Francis “Bub” O’Casey. William Demarest, playing Bub’s brother, “Charley”, replaced Frawley in 1965 due to Frawley’s illness. In September 1965, eldest son Mike married, and his character was written out of the show. To keep the emphasis on “three sons”, a new son named Ernie was adopted. In the program’s final years, Steven Douglas remarried and adopted his new wife’s young daughter Dorothy (“Dodie”).

      The series was a cornerstone of the ABC and CBS lineups in the 1960s. With 380 episodes produced, it is second only to The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet (14 seasons, 1952-1966, 434 episodes) and tied with It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (12 seasons) as television’s longest-running live-action sitcom. Disney producer Bill Walsh often mused on whether the concept of the show was inspired by the movie The Shaggy Dog, as in his view they shared “the same dog, the same kids, and Fred MacMurray”.[1]
