Interested buyer!!

The artist asks the gallery owner, "Has there been any
interest in my paintings?"

"I have good news and bad news. The good news is that a
gentleman inquired about your work and asked if it would
appreciate in value after your death. When I told him it
would, he bought all of your paintings."

"That's wonderful!! But what's the bad news?"

"The guy was your doctor."

As he changed the tire, I talked with him. "You remember me," he said. "Mike Sinn. You visited me in the hospital."

It occurred to me that this was probably the first time that Grace was saved by Sinn.

"Yes, ma'am. But none to point out while I'm driving this bus
