The Grimm family were seated around a table in the offices of Paul Dregson, the family solicitor, to hear a reading of the will of Garston Grimm.
His two children and their mother were surprised to see the attractive blonde-headed secretary of Garston Grimm’s pickle factory.
The lawyer began.
‘I leave my entire debt-ridden estate to my secretary, Betsy Carpenter, except for the enclosed envelope the contents of which I bequeath to my wife and children.’
The envelope contained a single winning jackpot lottery ticket.
