Two old men sat in a boat on the river casting their lines as they the day carried on.

Late in the evening the men noticed a funeral procession passing by on the road in the distance. Without a word, one old man stood up, took off his hat, and bowed his head in a moment of silence.

When he put his hat on and sat back down his friend looked at him and said.

"That was a real nice thing for you to do."

The other old man sighed and said.

"Felt I had to, after all I was married to her for thirty years."
