IJMC The Gift That Kept On Giving

                   IJMC - The Gift That Kept On Giving

Well now, I wouldn't expect Hallmark to ever make a card out of this one. 
However, a friend of mine was in an auto accident tonight so it seems 
appropriate. Don't worry though, no one was hurt (at least not much... 
just enough for a little sympathy or so.).                          -dave

      There was a married couple who were in a terrible accident.  The 
      woman's face was burned severely. The doctor told the husband they
      couldn't graft any skin from her body because she was so skinny. The
      husband then donated some of his skin...however, the only place 
      suitable to the doctor was from his buttocks.

      The husband requested that no one be told of this, because after all
      this was a very delicate matter!

      After the surgery was completed, everyone was astounded at the
      woman's new beauty.  She looked more beautiful than she ever did 
      before! All her friends and relatives just ranted and raved at her
      youthful beauty!

      She was alone with her husband one day & she wanted to thank him for
      what he did.  She said, "Dear, I just want to thank you for
      everything you did for me!  There is no way I could ever repay you!!!

      He replied, "Oh don't worry, Honey, I get plenty thanks enough every
      time your mother comes over and kisses you on your cheek!!
