A man and a friend are playing golf one day at their local golf course. One of the guys is about to chip onto the green when he sees a long funeral procession on the road next to the course. He stops in mid-swing, takes off his golf cap, closes his eyes, and bows down in prayer.

"Wow," his friend says, "that is the most thoughtful and touching thing I have ever seen. You truly are a kind man."

The man then replies: "Yeah, well, we were married 35 years."
