Will you Marry Me?

There were these two elderly people living in a Florida old age home.
He was a widower and she a widow. They had known one another for
a number of years.
Now, one evening, there was a community supper in the big activity center.
These two were at the same table, across from one another. As the meal
went on, he made a few admiring glances at her and finally gathered up his
courage to ask her, "Will you marry me?"
After some 'careful consideration,' she answered, "Yes, I will."
The meal ended and with a few more pleasant exchanges, they went to their
respective rooms. Next morning, he was troubled. "Did she say 'yes' or did
she say 'no'?" He couldn't remember. Try as he would, he just could not
recall. Not even a faint memory. When he tried to see her, he found that
she
had gone to visit her daughter. With trepidation, he went to the telephone
and called her. First, he explained to her that his memory was not as good
as it used to be. Then he reviewed the lovely evening past. As he gained a
little more courage, he then inquired of her, "When I asked if you would
marry me, did you say 'Yes' or did you say 'No'?"
He was delighted to hear her say, "Why, I said, 'Yes, I will' and I meant
it with all my heart." Then she continued, "And I am so glad that you
called, because I couldn't remember who had asked me." !!!
