An elderly couple

An elderly couple are sitting around one evening and the man says to his wife, "Marsha, we are about to celebrate our 60th wedding anniversary. We've had a wonderful life together, full of contentment and blessings. But there is something I've always wondered about. Tell me the truth. Have you ever been unfaithful to me?"

She hesitates a moment, then says, "Yes, three times, Sidney."

"Three times? How could that happen?" Sidney asks.

The wife begins recalling slowly, "Well, do you remember right after we were married and we were so broke, and the bank was going to foreclose on our little house?"

"Yes, dear, that was really a terrible time," replies the man.

Marsha continued, "And remember when I went to see the banker one night and the next day the bank extended our loan?"

"That's hard to take" the man says, "But I guess it really was for us, so I can forgive you. What was the second time?"

"Well," she continued, "Do you remember years later when you almost died from the heart problem because we couldn't afford the operation?

"Yes, of course" the man replies.

"Then you will remember that right after I went to see the doctor, he did your operation at no cost?" she explained.

"That's true" Sidney nodded. "That shocks me, Marsha, but I do understand that you did it out of love for me, and I forgive you. So, what was the third time?"

Marsha lowers her head and says, "Sidney, do you remember when you ran for Country Club President and you needed 62 more votes...?"
