Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Two elderly people were living in an Old Folk's Home he was a widower and she a widow, and they had known each other

    for a number of years.

    One evening there was a community supper in the big activity center.

    The two were at the same table, across from one another.

    As the meal went on, he took a few admiring glances at her and finally

    gathered the courage to ask her, "Will you marry me?"

    After about six seconds of 'careful consideration', she answered

    "Yes. Yes, I will."

    The meal ended and, with a few more pleasant exchanges, they went to

    their respective places.

    Next morning, he was troubled. "Did she say 'yes' or did she say 'no'?"

    He couldn't remember. Try as he might, he just could not recall.

    Not even a faint memory. With trepidation, he went to the telephone

    and called her. First, he explained that he didn't remember as well as
    he

    used to. Then he reviewed the lovely evening past.

    As he gained a little more courage, he inquired, "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, yes I will' and I
    meant it

    with all my heart." Then she continued, "I am so glad that you called,
    because

    I couldn't remember who had asked me."
