…9 months after the flight
Gunny decided to go flying with his buddy, Gordon. So they loaded up Gunny’s Cub and headed north.
After flying for a coupl’a hours, they got caught in a terrible storm. So they landed on a nearby farm and asked the attractive lady who answered the door if they could spend the night.
'I realize it's terrible out there and I‘m all alone in this huge house, 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,' Gunny 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 took off & flew back home.
But about nine months later, Gunny 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 farm that weekend.
He dropped in on his friend Gordon and asked, ‘Geezer, do you remember that good-looking widow from the farm we stayed at on our flight up north about 9 months ago?'
'Yes, I do.' Said Gordon.
'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!' Gordon said, a little embarrassed about being found out, 'I have to admit that I did.'
'And did you happen to give her my name instead of telling her your name?'
Gordon'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.’
