A Texas billionaire had fallen ill. Doctors consulted did not seem to understand what ailed him. The billionaire let it be known that any doctor who could heal him could have whatever he desired. A country doctor was finally able to cure him and as the doctor was leaving after a week's stay, the Texan said, "Doc! I am a man of my word. You name it and if it is humanly possible, I'll get it for you." "Well," said the doctor, "I love to play golf, so if I could have a matching set of golf clubs that would be fine." With that the doctor left. The doctor didn't hear from the Texan billionaire for some months. Then one day he got a phone call from the billionaire. "Doc, I bet you thought that I had gone back on my word. I have your matching set of golf clubs. The reason it took so long is that two of them didn't have swimming pools and I didn't think they were good enough for ya. So I had pools installed and they're all ready for you now!"
