Condolences

Wife lost in kayaking accident in Maine

The day after his wife disappeared in a kayaking accident, a Bar Harbor
man answered his door to find two grim-faced Maine State Troopers.

"We're sorry Mr. Wilkins, but we have some information about your wife", said one of the troopers."

"Tell me! Did you find her?" Wilkins exclaimed.

The troopers looked at each other. One said, "We have some bad news,
some good news, and some really great news. Which would you like to hear first?"

Fearing the worst, Wilkins said, "Give me the bad news first."

The trooper said, "I'm sorry to tell you, sir, but this morning we found your wife's body in the bay."

"Oh my God!" exclaimed Wilkins. Swallowing hard, he asked, "What's the good
news?" The trooper continued, "When we pulled her up, she had 12 of the best looking Maine lobsters that you have ever seen and 60 good-sized rockfish clinging to her. Haven't seen lobsters like that since the '60s and we feel you are entitled to share in the catch."

Stunned, Wilkins demanded, "If that's the good news, then what's the great news?"

The trooper replied, "We're gonna pull her up again tomorrow."

Got to give credit to my good friend and former ceo, Paul J who sent it to me from Maine. Even my 90 year old mom thought it funny. About my wife, well . . .
