A hunter and his friend were quail hunting near Highway 281 in Russell, KS early one cold opening morning. Suddenly, the dogs pointed out a large covey. Moving quickly toward the dogs, he removed the safety from his shotgun. As he was about to bust the covey, his friend alerted him to a funeral procession passing slowly down Hwy 281. The hunter quickly turned on his safety, set the shotgun down, took off his hat, bowed his head and then closed his eyes in prayer. His friend was stunned. "Wow, that is the most thoughtful and touching thing I have ever seen you do. You are indeed the kindest man I have ever known, and I feel lucky to call you a friend." The hunter shrugged. "Yeah,........ well......, we were married for 35 years."
