Ann's Bosnia joke

Susan died after a long illness and arrived at the Gates of Heaven. As she waited for Saint Peter to receive her, she peeked through the Gates and saw her parents and friends who had died before her sitting at a banquet table. They called out to her, “Susan, we've been waiting for you!''

When Saint Peter came by, Susan said, ''This is such a wonderful place! How do I get in?''

''You have to spell a word.''

''Which word?'' Susan asked.

''Love,'' Saint Peter said.

Susan correctly spelled the word and Saint Peter welcomed her into Heaven.

A year later, asked to be on temporary duty at the Gates of Heaven for the day, Susan saw her husband approach.

''How have you been?'' she pleasantly asked.

''I've been doing pretty well. I married Kate, the pretty young nurse who took care of you when you were ill. Then I won the lottery. I sold the house we lived in and bought a large mansion. Kate and I traveled round the world. We were skiing today when I fell and hit my head, and here I am. How do I get in?''

''You have to spell a word'', the woman told him.

''Which word?'' her husband asked.
