Mary Benny: Diamond Jockey

Jack Benny's wife Mary once lost a beautiful diamond ring during a robbery in a New York hotel. When Benny, in Pittsburgh at the time, learned of the theft (from a reporter), he tried to call Mary several times but was told that she was "out."

When he finally managed to get through to Mary, he asked her where on earth she had been. "At the jeweler's," she replied, "looking for another ring." "What! At a time like this you're out shopping for a diamond?" "Sure. It's like when you fall off a horse," Mary explained. "If you don't get right back on, you never ride again!"
