So I sent her a remarkable parrot that recites the great and well known Classics. It took a whole School of Teaches 12 years to teach him. He’s one of a kind. Mom just has to name the Book and page, and the parrot recites it.”
Soon thereafter, Mom sent out her letters of thanks:
“Dear Milton,” she wrote one son, Thank you for your thoughtfulness but the house you built is too huge. I live in only one room, but I have to keep the whole house clean!”
“Dear Gerald,” she wrote to another, Thank you for thinking of me but I am too old to travel.
“Dearest Donald,” she wrote to her third son, “You have the good sense to know what your Mother likes.
The Chicken was Dee-licious!”
