During a very cold Minneapolis winter a couple decided to go to Florida for a short warm weather holiday. They planned to stay at the same hotel where they had spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier.

They were both very busy so the husband left Minnesota and flew down to Florida on Thursday, it was planned that  his wife would arrive the next day.

The husband checked into the hotel. There was a computer in the room, so he decided to send an e-mail to his wife.

However, he typed the wrong e-mail address so the e-mail was sent to a woman in Houston.

In Houston, a widow had just returned from her husband’s funeral.

The widow decided to check her e-mails, hoping to find messages from friends and relatives.

After reading the first message, she screamed and fainted. The widow’s son saw the computer screen which read:


To: My Loving Wife

Subject: I’ve arrived

Date: October 16, 2004

I know you’re surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and you are allowed to send e-mails to your loved ones. I’ve just arrived and have been checked in. I see that everything is ready for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then. Have a safe journey.

P.s. It is very, very hot down here!
