A young woman following her wedding placed a footlocker at the foot of the bed and locked it. The husband asked many times “What’s the footlocker for?” and she refused to answer, saying that he would be told, “… all in good time.” After fifty years of marriage a couple decided to go to the first hotel room they stayed at on their wedding night some fifty years earlier.
The husband was a little surprised when the bell man was taking the luggage from the back of their SUV, he saw that his wife had loaded the footlocker from the foot of their bed and had loaded it into the SUV. He asked why and she replied “Later Dear! I’ll explain later.”
After dinner they retired to their room, the same one that they had been in some fifty years earlier. The chest had been placed at the foot of the bed and the wife removed a key from a locket between her breasts and said, “OK, you can open the chest.”
Inside, the husband found two ears of corn and a about $25,000.00 in cash.
He asked “Why the two ears of corn?”
He said “Twice in fifty years, that does hurt but I guess I can understand because I did travel a lot in the early years.”
He asked “Why the $25,000.00 in cash?”
She said “Each time I got a bushel, I sold it.”
