In the old days, farm widows had to be real careful with money, since most farmers didn't have much, if any, life insurance.
One savvy new widow, already well known for her "thrifty" ways was asked how she wanted the death notice to be printed. Knowing they charged by the word, she said "Just print: 'Mr. Musgrove died'."
The funeral director, somewhat taken aback by the brevity, said that he could get a few more words at the same price during a special the newspaper was offering.
She thought a minute, then said, "Mr. Musgrove died. Ford Pickup for sale."
