Two elderly ladies meet at the market after not seeing each other for some time. One asked how the other's husband was doing.

"Oh, Rodger died last week..." she explained, "He went out to the garden to dig up a cabbage for dinner, had a heart attack and dropped dead right there in the vegetable patch."

"Oh dear, I'm so sorry," replied her friend, "What on earth did you do?"

"Opened a can of peas instead."
