Jack decided to go skiing with his buddy, Bob. So they loaded up Jack’s
mini van and headed north.
After driving for a few hours, they got caught in a terrible blizzard. So
they pulled into a nearby farm and asked the attractive lady who answered
the door if they could spend the night.
“I realize it’s terrible weather out there and I have this huge house all
to myself, but I’m recently widowed,” she explained. “I’m afraid the
neighbors will talk if I let you stay in my house.”
“Don’t worry,” Jack said. “We’ll be happy to sleep in the barn. And if the
weather breaks, we’ll be gone at first light.” The lady agreed, and the
two men found their way to the barn and settled
in for the night.
Come morning, the weather had cleared, and they got on their way. They
enjoyed a great weekend of skiing. But about nine months later, Jack got
an unexpected letter from an attorney. It took him a few minutes to figure
it out, but he finally determined that it was from the attorney of that
attractive widow he had met on the ski weekend.
He dropped in on his friend Bob and asked, “Bob, do you remember that
good-looking widow from the farm we stayed at on our ski holiday up North
about 9 months ago?” “Yes, I do.” said Bob.
“Did you, er, happen to get up in the middle of the night, go up to the
house and pay her a visit?”
“Well, um, yes,” Bob said, a little embarrassed about being found out. “I
have to admit that I did.”
“And did you happen to use my name instead of telling her your name?”
Bob’s face turned beet red and he said, “Yeah, look, I’m sorry, buddy.
I’m afraid I did. Why do you ask?”
“She just died and left me everything.”
