There was an engineer who had an outstanding ability to fix everything mechanical. Subsequent to serving his company dependably for more than three decades, he decided to retire.

After many years, the company reached him concerning a critical issue they were having with one of their multimillion-dollar machines.

They had tried everything to get the machine to work, but they failed. In distress, they approached the retired engineer who had solved so many of their problems before.

The engineer involuntarily took the challenge. He went through a day analyzing the massive machine. He marked a small "x" in chalk on a specific part of the machine and expressed, "This is where your problem is."

The part was repaired, and the machine worked superbly again. The company got a bill for $50,000 from the engineer for his service.

They requested an itemized accounting of his charges. The engineer answered quickly: "One chalk mark $1. Knowing where to put it $49,999."

"Sure you can," he replied.

As she sat on her grandfather's lap, she stated, "Grandpa, can you make a sound like a frog?"

The older man was intrigued by his granddaughter's question. He stared at her face so intently.

"A sound like a frog?" he asked. "Well, sure, Grandpa can make a sound like a frog."

"Really, Grandpa?" said the thrilled little girl.

Her grandfather just smiled at her in response. A moment later, the girl spoke again.

"Grandpa, will you please, please make a sound like a frog?"

Puzzled, her grandfather said, "Sweetheart, for what reason do you need me to make a sound like a frog?"
