Frank and Maybelle, an old couple who owned a small business, were enroute to Europe when their plane was forced to land because of engine problems. The plane lands safely on the island and everyone deplanes safely. After a while old Frank turns to his wife and say’s “This Island appears to be uncharted and desolate. The odds are that we will never be rescued and will have to live on the island for a very long time, if not for the rest of our lives! This is horrible, simply horrible!”

After a few minutes his wife Maybelle asks, “Did we pay our quarterly estimated Federal income tax yet?” “No. What a silly thing to ask now!” says Frank. She replies, “Did you remember to mail off our state estimated taxes before we left?” “No.” Maybelle begins to grin, “So what are you smiling about!?” an exasperated Frank asks. “They’ll find us!!” says Maybelle.

Thank you for sharing.
