Just Plain Funny

I was talking to one of the doctors here at work today and he was telling me about his grandfather. He never actually got to know his grandfather because he died long before my friend was born. He was fortunate because his family had a deep love for his grandfather and passed down the stories and gave him a sense of heritage. The man must have been truly remarkable. My friend was telling me that he used to see his grandfather's picture hanging in the business that he helped start. He stopped to study it often. Over the years the demographics of the neighborhood where the business was located changed. One day my friend was in the area and he stopped by to see if that picture was still hanging on the wall. Imagine his surprise when he saw that his grandfather was several shades darker than he had ever been in real life! My friend just laughed and said, "anything to make a buck I guess."
