Honesty is the best policy

Jack decided to go skiing with his buddy, Bob. So they loaded up Jack’s minivan and  headed north.
After driving for a  few hours, they got  caught in a terrible  blizzard. So they  pulled into a nearby farm and  asked the attractive lady who answered the door if they could spend the night.
‘I realize it’s terrible weather out there and I have this huge house all to myself, but I’m recently widowed,’   she explained. ‘I’m afraid the neighbors will talk if I let you stay in my house.’
‘Don’t worry,’ Jack said.. ‘We’ll be happy to sleep in the barn. And if the  weather breaks, we’ll be gone at  first light.’
The lady  agreed, and the  two men found  their way to the  barn and settled in  for the night.
Come morning, the weather had cleared, and they were on their way.  They enjoyed a  great weekend of  skiing.
But about nine  months later, Jack got an unexpected  letter from an attorney. It took him a few minutes  to figure it out, but he finally determined that it was from the attorney of that attractive widow he had met on the ski weekend and had slept in her barn.
He dropped in on his friend Bob and  asked, “Bob, do you remember that good-looking widow from the farm we stayed at on our ski holiday up north about 9 months ago?”
“Yes, I do.” Said Bob
“Did you, happen to get up in  the middle of the night, go up to the  house and pay her a visit?”
“Well, um, yes!,”    Bob said, a little embarrassed about being found out,  ‘I have to admit that I  did.”
“And did you happen to give her  my name instead  of  yours?”
Bob’s face turned  beet red and he said, “Yeah, look,   I’m sorry, buddy.  I’m afraid that I did.’     ‘Why do you ask?”
“She just died and  left me everything.”
