Two elderly women were
eating breakfast in a restaurant one morning. Ethel noticed something
funny about Mabel's ear and she said, "Mabel, did you know you've
got a suppository in your left ear?" Mabel answered, "I
have? A suppository?" She pulled it out & stared at it. Then
she said, "Ethel, I'm glad you saw this thing. Now I think I
know where my hearing aid is."
A funeral service is being
held for a woman who has just passed away. At the end of the service,
the pall bearers are carrying the casket out when they accidentally
bump into a wall, jarring the casket.
They hear a faint moan! They
open the casket and find that the woman is actually alive! She lives
for ten more years, and then dies. Once again, a ceremony is held,
and at the end of it, the pall bearers are again carrying out the
casket. As they carry the casket towards the door, the husband cries
out: "Watch that wall!"
A man once counselled
his son that if he wanted to live a long life, the secret was to sprinkle
a little gunpowder on his corn-flakes every morning.
The son did this religiously,
and he lived to the age of 93. When he died, he left 14 children,
28 grandchildren, 35 great-grandchildren, and a 15 foot hole in the
wall of the crematorium.
Three more helpful retirement jokes
- The question isn't at what age I want to retire, it's at what income. George Foreman
- There is an enormous number of managers who have retired on the job. Peter F. Drucker
- I have never liked working. To me a job is an invasion of privacy. Danny McGoorty, Irish Pool Player
There was a man who had worked all
of his life, had saved all of his money, and was a real miser when
it came to his money. Just before he died, he said to his wife,
"When I die, I want you to take all my money and put it in
the casket with me. I want to take my money to the afterlife with
And so he got his wife to promise him
with all of her heart that when he died, she would put all of the
money in the casket with him. Well, he died. He was stretched out
in the casket, his wife was sitting there in black, and her friend
was sitting next to her. When they finished the ceremony, just before
the undertakers got ready to close the casket, the wife said, "Wait
just a minute!"
She had a box with her, she came over
with the box and put it in the casket. Then the undertakers locked
the casket down, and they rolled it away. So her friend said, "Girl,
I know you weren't fool enough to put all that money in there with
The loyal wife replied," Listen,
I'm a Christian, I can't go back on my word. I promised him that
I was going to put that money in that casket with him."
Her friend asked, "You mean to
tell me you actually put that money in the casket with him!!!!?"
"I sure did," said the wife.
"I got it all together, put it into my account and wrote him
a cheque. If he can cash it, he can spend it."
Miss Beatrice, the church
organist, was in her eighties. She was admired for her sweetness
and kindness to all. One afternoon the pastor came to call on her
and she showed him into her quaint sitting room. She invited him
to have a seat while she prepared tea.
As he sat facing her old
Hammond organ, the young minister noticed a cut-glass bowl sitting
on top of it. The bowl was filled with water, and in the water floated,
of all things, a condom! When she returned with tea and scones,
they began to chat.
The pastor tried to stifle
his curiosity about the bowl of water and its strange floater, but
soon it got the better of him and He could no longer resist. "Miss
Beatrice", he said, "I wonder if you would tell me about
this?" pointing to the bowl.
"Oh, yes," she
replied, "Isn't it wonderful? I was walking through the Park
a few months ago and I found this little package on the ground.
The directions said to place it on the organ, keep it wet and that
it would prevent the spread of disease. Do you know I haven't had
the flu all winter?"
in his late 50's is out for a blast on the first fine day in spring.
He's on his new R1 and is really enjoying
the ride. He gets to a long straight and decides to see "what
it'll do" and opens it up......
120, 130, 140, 150 flash across the clock.
"This is brilliant", he thinks
to himself and clicks up into top and opens it wide...160, 170,
then he starts to think maybe this isn't too clever and
starts to slow down.
When he hits 90, he looks in his mirrors
he sees a police car behind him, blue lights flashing and siren
blaring. "I can get away from him - no problem!"
and flies back up to 110mph, then 120, then 130mph.
Suddenly, he thinks, "What on earth
am I doing? I'm too old for this nonsense!"
So he pulls over to the side of the
road and waited for the police car to catch up with him.
Pulling in behind him, the police officer walked up to the bike,
looked at his watch and said, "Sir, my shift ends in 10 minutes.
Today is Friday and I'm taking off for the weekend. If you can give
me a reason why you were speeding that I've never heard before,
I'll let you go."
The man looked very seriously at the policeman, and replied, "Years
ago, my wife ran off with a policeman. I thought you were bringing

came home from the pub late one Friday evening stinko drunk, as he
often did, and crept into bed beside his wife, who was already asleep.
He gave a peck on the cheek and fell asleep. When he awoke he found
a strange man standing at the end of his bed wearing a long flowing
white robe. "Who the hell are you?" Demanded Kenny, "and
what are you doing in my bedroom?".
The mysterious Man answered "This isn't your bedroom and I'm
Kenny was stunned "You mean I'm dead!!! That can't be, I have
so much to live for, I haven't said goodbye to my family.... you've
got to send me back straight away". St Peter replied "Yes
you can be reincarnated but there is a catch. We can only send you
back as a dog or a hen." Kenny was devastated, but knowing there
was a farm not far from his house, he asked to be sent back as a hen.
A flash of light later, he was covered in feathers and clucking around
pecking the ground. "This ain't so bad" he thought until
he felt this strange feeling welling up inside him. The farmyard rooster
strolled over and said "So you're the new hen, how are you enjoying
your first day here?" "It's not so bad" replies Kenny,
"but I have this strange feeling inside like I'm about to explode".
explained the rooster, "don't tell me you've never laid an egg
"Never" replies Kenny "Well just relax and let it happen"
And so he did and after a few uncomfortable seconds later, an egg
pops out from under his tail. An immense feeling of relief swept over
him and his emotions got the better of him as he experienced motherhood
for the first time. When he laid his second egg, the feeling of happiness
was overwhelming and he knew that being reincarnated as a hen was
the best thing that ever happened to him...
ever!!! The joy kept coming and as he was just about to lay his third
egg he felt an enormous smack on the back of his head and heard his
wife shouting "Kenny, wake up you drunken git, you're s****ing
couple had been dating for some time and decided it was finally time
to marry. Before the wedding, they had a long conversation regarding
how their marriage might work.
They discussed finances, living arrangements and so on. Finally the
old man decided it was time to broach the subject of their physical
"How do you feel about
sex?" he asked, rather hopefully.
"Well, I'd have to say I like it infrequently," she responded.
The old guy paused .... then he asked, "Was that one word or
Paula are getting ready for bed.
Paula is standing in front of her full-length
mirror, taking a long, hard look at herself.
"You know, Jeff," she comments. "I stare into this
mirror and I see an ancient creature. My face is all wrinkled, my
boobs sag so much that they dangle to my waist, my arms and legs are
as flabby as popped balloons, and...my butt looks like a sad, deflated
version of the Hindenberg!" My body has just gone to hell in
a hand basket! She turns to face her husband and says, "Dear,
please tell me just one positive thing about my body so I can feel
better about myself."
Jeff studies Paula critically for a moment
and then says in a soft, thoughtful voice, "Well, there's nothing
wrong with your eyesight."
IF MY BODY WERE A CAR
If my body were a car, this is the time I would be thinking about
trading it in for a newer model. I've got bumps and dents and
scratches in my finish and my paint job is getting a little dull,
but that's not the worst of it.
My headlights are out of focus and it's especially hard to see
things up close. My traction is not as graceful as it once was.
I slip and slide and skid and bump into things even in the best of
My whitewalls are stained with varicose veins. It takes me hours to
reach my maximum speed. My fuel rate burns inefficiently.
But here's the worst of it -- Almost every time I sneeze, cough or
either my radiator leaks or my exhaust backfires!
A woman came home to find her retired
husband waving a rolled up newspaper round his head.
'What are you doing dear?'
'Swatting flies - I got 3 males and 2 females' 'How do you know what
sex they were?'
'Easy - 3 were on the beer and 2 were on the phone'
An elderly couple decide
to go for a meal on their anniversary and after some deliberation
decide on their local Chinese restaurant. They peruse the menu and
finally agree to share the chef's special chicken surprise.
The waiter brings over the meal, served in a lidded cast iron pot.
Just as the wife is about to start in on the meal, the lid of the
pot rises a tiny amount and she briefly sees two beady little eyes
looking around before the lid slams back down.
'Did you see that?' she asks her husband.
He hasn't so she asks him to look in the pot.
He reaches for it and again the lid rises, and again he sees two beady
little eyes looking around before it firmly slams back down. Rather
perturbed he calls the waiter over, says what is happening and demands
'Well sir', says the waiter, 'What did you order?'
We both chose the same', he replies, 'the chicken surprise'
Oh I do apologize, this is my fault' says the waiter.....
'I've brought you the Peking duck'
An elderly couple, Ray
and Bessie, are "snowbirds" in Texas. Ray always wanted
a pair of authentic cowboy boots. Seeing some on sale one day, he
buys them and wears them home, walking proudly.
He walks into the house and says to his wife,
"Notice anything different about me?"
Bessie looks him over, "Nope."
Frustrated, Ray storms off into the bathroom, undresses, and walks
back into the room completely naked except for the boots. Again, he
asks, a little louder this time, "Notice anything different now??"
Bessie looks up and says, "Ray, what's different? It's hanging
down today, it was hanging down yesterday, it'll be hanging down again
tomorrow." Furious, Ray yells, "AND DO YOU KNOW WHY IT IS
HANGING DOWN, BESSIE? IT'S HANGING DOWN BECAUSE IT'S LOOKING AT MY
NEW BOOTS!!!!!!" To which Bessie replies, "Shoulda bought
a hat, Ray. Shoulda bought a hat."
Old Age Memory
A husband and wife, both
in their 80's, visit their doctor and complain of short-term memory
loss. After listening, the doctor suggests that they may want to write
down the things they would like to remember. The couple agree that
this would be a good idea.
A few days go by and the
husband and wife are in bed late one evening when the wife says she
could go for a bowl of ice cream. The husband volunteers to go down
to the kitchen and dish it up.
"Do you think you
should write it down like the doctor said?" the wife asks.
"No, I think I can
remember a bowl of ice cream," replies the husband, as he heads
After a few minutes the
husband comes through the door and presents his wife with a platter
of bacon and eggs.
"I knew this would
happen!" she exclaimed. "You forgot my toast!"
gentleman went to apply for Social Security.
After waiting in line for quite a long time he arrived at the
counter. The woman behind the counter asked him for his
identification to verify his age. He looked in his pockets and
realised he had left his wallet at home. He told the woman that he
seemed to have left his wallet at home. "Will I have to go home
and come back now?" he asks.
The woman says, "Unbutton your shirt."
He opens his shirt revealing lots of curly silver hair.
She says, "That silver hair on your chest is proof enough for

the water was coming over the porch and into the house.

was still sitting there when a rescue boat came and the people on
board said, "You can't stay here you have to come with us."
The old man
replied, "No, God will save me." So the boat left. A little
while later the water was up to the second floor, and another rescue
boat came, and again told the old man he had to come with them.
The old man
again replied, "God will save me." So the boat left him
An hour later
the water was up to the roof and a third rescue boat approached the
old man, and tried to get him to come with them.
old man refused to leave stating that, "God will save him."
So the boat left him again.
the man drowns and goes to heaven, and when he sees God he asks him,
"Why didn't you save me?"
"You idiot, I tried. I sent three boats after you!!"
A mother decided one Christmas that she wasn't going to remind her
kids any longer of their need to write thank-you notes.
The result of this was
that their Grandad never received any thank-yous for the very generous
cheques he'd written to the kids. However, the following year, things
"All the Kids came

And they ask, "Why do we have to wait until the baby cries?"
The new mother says, "because I forgot

A man is having a few drinks
at a bar when he looks over and notices an old drunk guy passed out
at a table nearby. The bartender tells him the drunk is Mr. Murphy
and asks the man if he could drive Mr. Murphy home. Being a good Samaritan,
the man agrees. The bartender writes down the address and gives it
The man walks over and tries to wake Mr.
Murphy but Mr. Murphy is groggy and quite drunk. The man helps Mr.
Murphy to his feet and Mr. Murphy falls to the floor in a heap.
"Jeez," the man says wondering
how anyone could drink so much. He takes Murphy by the arm and practically
drags him out to the car. Once there he leans him against the side
of his car while he looks for his keys. Mr.
Murphy slides down to the ground. The man finds his keys and manages
to get Murphy positioned in the car.
He then drives to the address the bartender
gave him. He opens the passenger door and helps Mr. Murphy out and
the guy falls to the ground.
Cursing softly, now, the man helps him to his feet and practically
drags him to the front door. He lets go of Mr. Murphy to knock on
the door and the guy falls down again. He helps him to his feet as
Mrs. Murphy answers the door.
"Hi, Mrs. Murphy, Your husband had
a little too much to drink tonight so I gave him a ride home."
"That was nice of you," she
says, looking around...
"But where's his wheelchair?"
Two elderly ladies had
been friends for many decades. Over the years they had shared all
kinds of activities and adventures. Lately, their activities had been
limited to meeting a few times a week to play cards. One day they
were playing cards when one looked at the other and said, "Now
don't get mad at me.....I know we've been friends for a long time.....but
I just can't think of your name! I've thought and thought, but I can't
remember it. Please tell me what your name is. Her friend glared at
her. For at least three minutes she just stared and glared at her.
Finally she said, "How soon do you need to know?
Percy , an 82 year-old
man, went to the doctor to get a physical.
A few days later the doctor
saw Percy walking down the street with a
gorgeous young lady on his arm.
A couple of days later
the doctor spoke to Percy and said, ' You're
really doing great, aren't you? '
Percy replied, 'Just doing
what you said, Doctor: Get a hot mamma and
The doctor said, 'I didn't
say that. I said, You got a heart murmur.
A man decided to have
a face lift for his birthday. He spends £5,000 and feels really
great about the result. On his way home he stops at a shop and buys
a paper. Before leaving he says to the shop assistant , "I hope
you don't mind me asking, but how old do you think I am?" "About
35," was the reply.
"I'm actually 47,"
the man says, feeling really happy.
After that he goes into
McDonalds for lunch, and asks the order taker the same question, to
which the reply is, "Oh you look about 29".
"I am actually 47!"
This makes him feel really good.
While standing at the
bus stop he asks an old woman the same question. She replies, "I
am 85 years old and my eyesight is going. But when I was young there
was a sure way of telling a mans age. If I put my hand down your pants
for ten minutes I will be able to tell your exact age."
As there was no one around,
the man thought what the hell and let her slip her hand down his pants.
Ten minutes later the old lady says, "OK, it's done. You are
Stunned the man says,
"That was brilliant! How did you do that?"
The old lady replies,
"I was in line behind you at McDonalds."
A couple goes out to dinner
to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. On the way home, she
notices a tear in his eye and asks if he's getting sentimental because
they're celebrating 50 wonderful years together. He replies, "No,
I was thinking about the time before we got married. Your father threatened
me with a shotgun and said he'd have me thrown in jail for 50 years
if I didn't marry you. Tomorrow I would've been a free man!"
Why I fired my Secretary on
Last week was my retirement
and I didn't feel very well
waking up on that morning.
I went downstairs for breakfast
hoping my wife would be pleasant and say,
and possibly have a small present for me.
As it turned out,
she barely said good morning,
" Happy retirement."
that's marriage for you,
but the kids....
They will remember.
My kids came bounding down stairs to
and didn't say a word.
So when I left for the office,
I felt pretty low
and somewhat despondent.
As I walked into my office,
my secretary Jane said,
"Good Morning Boss,
and by the way
It felt a little better
that at least someone had remembered.
I worked until one o'clock ,
when Jane knocked on my door
and said, "You know,
It's such a beautiful day outside,
and it is your retirement,
what do you say we go out to lunch,
just you and me."
I said, "Thanks, Jane,
that's the greatest thing
I've heard all day.
Let's go !"
We went to lunch.
But we didn't go
where we normally would go.
She chose instead at a quiet bistro
with a private table.
We had two martinis each
and I enjoyed the meal tremendously.
On the way back to the office,
Jane said, "You know,
It's such a beautiful day...
We don't need to go straight back to the office,
Do We ?"
"I guess not.
What do you have in mind ?"
"Let's drop by my apartment,
it's just around the corner."
After arriving at her apartment,
Jane turned to me and said,
" Boss, if you don't mind,
I'm going to step into the bedroom
for just a moment.
I'll be right back."
"Ok." I nervously replied.
She went into the bedroom and,
after a couple of minutes,
she came out
carrying a huge retirement cake
by my wife,
and dozens of my friends
all shouting " Happy retirement!"
And I just sat there...
On the couch...
Claude and Maude...
They met at the singles
club meeting and discovered over time that they Enjoyed each others
company. After several weeks of meeting for coffee, Claude asked
Maude out for dinner and, much to his delight, she accepted. They
had a lovely evening. They dined at the most romantic restaurant
Despite his age, they ended at his place
for an after-dinner drink. Things continued along a natural course
and age being no inhibitor, Maude soon joined Claude for a most
enjoyable roll in the hay.
As they were basking in the glow of
the magic moments they'd shared, each was lost for a time in their
Claude was thinking: "If I'd known
she was a virgin, I'd have been gentler."
Maude was thinking: "If I'd known he could still do it, I'd
have taken off my tights. "
You will surely understand that I have certain needs that you with
54-year-old body can no longer supply. However, I am very happy with
you and I value you as a good wife. Therefore, after reading this
letter, I hope that you will not wrongly interpret the fact that I
be spending the evening with my 18-year old secretary at the Comfort
Please don't be perturbed, I shall be back home before midnight.
When the husband came home,
he found a letter on the dining Room table:
My dearest husband,
I received your letter and
thank you for your honesty. I would like to
take this opportunity to remind you that you are also 54 years old.
the same time, I would like to inform you that while you are reading
this, I will be at the Ritz Carleton with Michael, my tennis coach,
like your secretary, also is 18. As a successful businessman and with
your excellent knowledge of maths, you will understand that we are

more times than
54 goes into 18. Therefore, I will not be back until lunchtime tomorrow
An 80-year old man goes to
the doctor for a checkup. The doctor is amazed
at what good shape the guy is in and asks, "How do you stay in
I'm a golfer," says
the old guy, "and that's why I'm in such good shape.
I'm up well before daylight and out golfing up and down the fairways."
Well," says the doctor,
"I'm sure that helps, but there's got to be more to
it. How old was your dad when he died?"
"Who said my dad's dead?"
The doctor is amazed. "You mean you're 80 years old and your
alive. How old is he?"
"He's 100 years old,"
says the old golfer. "In fact he golfed with me this
morning, and that's why he's still alive. He's a golfer too."
"Well," the doctor
says, "that's great, but I'm sure there's more to it
than that. How about your dad's dad? How old was he when he died?"
"Who said my grandpa's
Stunned, the doctor asks, "You mean you're 80 years old and your
grandfather is still living! Incredible, how old is he?"
"He's 118 years old,"
says the old golfer.
The doctor is getting frustrated at this point, "So, I guess
golfing with you this morning too?"
"No. Grandpa couldn't
go this morning because he's getting married today."
At this point the doctor is close to losing it. "Getting married!!
would a 118 year-old guy want to get married?"

Life Is Soooooo Boring
Two little old ladies were
sitting on a park bench outside the local town hall where a flower
show was in progress.
The thin one leaned over and said, "Life is so darned boring.
We never have any fun anymore. For $5.00, I'd take my clothes off
and streak through that stupid flower show!"
"You're on!" said the other old lady, holding up a $5.00
The first little old lady slowly fumbled her way out of her clothes
and, completely naked, streaked (as fast as an old lady can) through
the front door of the flower show.
Waiting outside, her friend soon heard a huge commotion inside the
hall, followed by loud applause and shrill whistling.
The smiling and naked old lady came through the exit door surrounded
by a cheering crowd.
"What happened?" asked her waiting friend.
"I won 1st prize as Best Dried Arrangement"
Keep 'Em Dry
One day a man and woman were
standing outside the nursing home casually having a drink and a smoke.
After being outside for a while it started to rain on them. Suddenly,
the man took out a condom, cut off the tip, and slipped it over his
The lady asked, "What's that for?" He replied, "It's
to keep my cigarette dry when I'm outside smoking and it starts to
rain." The lady said, "That's a pretty nifty idea."
The following day the old lady went to the drugstore to get some condoms.
She walked in and told the clerk, "I'd like some condoms please."
The clerk looked at the old lady, rather baffled at why she would
need condoms. However, he asked, "What brand would you like,
The old lady smiled and replied,
"I don't care what brand you give me, as long as it fits a Camel."
meets Pope Benedict XVI at the airport.
After getting all of the Pope's luggage loaded into the limo, (and
he doesn't travel light), the driver notices that the Pope is still
standing on the curb.
"Excuse me, Your Holiness," says the driver. "Would
you please take your seat so we can leave?"
"Well, to tell you the truth," says the Pope, "they
never let me drive at the Vatican, and I'd really like to drive today."
"I'm sorry but I cannot let you do that. I'd lose my job! And
supposing something should happen?" protests the driver, wishing
that he'd never gone to work that morning.
"There might be something extra in it for you," says the
Reluctantly, the driver gets in the back as the Pope climbs in behind
The driver quickly regrets his decision when, after exiting the airport,
the Pontiff floors it, accelerating the limo to 105 mph.
"Please slow down, Your Holiness!!!" pleads the worried
driver, but the Pope keeps the pedal to the metal until they hear
"Oh, dear God, I'm gonna lose my license," moans the driver.
The Pope pulls over and rolls down the window as the cop approaches,
but the cop takes one look at him, goes back to his motorcycle, and
gets on the radio.
"I need to talk to the Chief," he says to the dispatcher.
The Chief gets on the radio and the cop tells him that he's stopped
a limo going a hundred and five.
"So bust him," says the Chief. "I don't think we want
to do that, he's really important," said the cop.
The Chief exclaimed," All the more reason!" "No, I
mean really important," said the cop.
The Chief then asked, "Who ya got there, the Mayor?"
"Well," said the Chief, "Who is it?"
Cop: "I think it's God!"
Chief: "What makes you think it's God?"
Cop: "He's got the bl**dy Pope as a chauffeur!!"
Aunt Mildred was a 93-year-old woman who was particularly despondent
over the recent death of her husband. She decided that she would just
kill herself and join him in death. Thinking that it would be best
to get it over with quickly, she took out his old Army pistol and
made the decision to shoot herself in the heart, since it was badly
broken in the first place. Not wanting to miss the vital organ and
become a vegetable and a burden to someone, she called her doctor's
office to inquire as to just exactly where the heart would be on a
woman. The doctor said, "Your heart would be just below your

I said, "Well, then
why are you crying?"
She said, "He makes
me homemade soup for lunch and my favorite
brownies and then makes love to me for half the afternoon."
I said, "Well, why
are you crying?"
She said, "For dinner
he makes me a gourmet meal with wine and my
favorite dessert and then makes love to me until 2:00 a.m."
I said, "Well, why
in the world would you be crying?"
She said, "I can't
remember where I live."
- An old woman was arrested for shoplifting at a grocery store. When she appeared before the judge, the judge asked what she had taken. The lady replied, "A can of peaches." The judge then asked why she had done it. She replied, "I was hungry and forgot to bring any cash to the store." The judge asked how many peaches were in the can. She replied, "Nine." The judge said, "Well then, I'm going to give you nine days in jail--one day for each peach." As the judge was about to drop his gavel, the lady's husband raised his hand and asked if he might speak. The judge said, "Yes, what do you have to add?" The husband said, "Your honor, she also stole a can of peas."
- Two elderly ladies were discussing the upcoming dance at the country club. "We're supposed to wear something that matches our husband's hair, so I'm wearing black," said Mrs. Smith. "Oh my," said Mrs. Jones, "I'd better not go."
- Three old ladies were discussing the trials and tribulations of getting older. One said, "Sometimes I catch myself with a jar of mayonnaise in my hand while standing in front of the refrigerator, and I can't remember whether I need to put it away or start making a sandwich." The second lady chimed in with, "Yes, sometimes I find myself on the landing of the stairs and can't remember whether I was on my way up or on my way down." The third one responded, "Well, ladies, I'm glad I don't have that problem, knock on wood," as she rapped her knuckles on the table and then said, "That must be the door, I'll get it!"
- Two elderly women were out driving in a large car. Both could barely see over the dashboard. As they were cruising along, they came to an intersection. The stoplight was red, but they just went on through. The woman in the passenger seat thought to herself, "I must be losing it. I could have sworn we just went through a red light." After a few more minutes, they came to another intersection, and the light was red again. They went right though it. This time, the woman in the passenger seat was almost sure that the light had been red and was really concerned that she was losing it. She was getting nervous and decided to pay very close attention to the road and the next intersection to see what was going on. At the next intersection, the light was definitely red, and sure enough, they went right through again. She turned to the other woman and said, "Mildred! Did you know we just ran through three red lights in a row? You could have killed us!" Mildred turned to her and said, "Oh my, am I driving?"
- An old fellow fell in love with a lady. He got down on his knees and told her there were two things he would like to ask her. She replied, "OK." He said, "Will you marry me?" She replied, "Yes," then asked what his second question was. He replied, "Will you help me up?"
- You're over the hill when your back goes out more than you do.
- Reporter: "So you are 100 years old. How did you manage to live so long?" Old man: "Well, son, I got married when I was 21. The wife and I decided that if we had arguments, the loser would take a long walk to get over being mad. I suppose I have been benefitted most by 79 years of fresh air."

Recently, I was diagnosed
with A. A. A. D. D. Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder.
This is how it manifests itself:
I decide to water my garden.
As I turn on the hose in the driveway, I look over at my car and decide my car
As I start toward the garage, I notice that there is mail on the porch table that I brought up from the mail box earlier.
I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.
lay my car keys down on the table, put the junk mail in the rubbish bin under the table, and notice that the bin is full.
So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the rubbish first.
But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox when I take out the garbage anyway, I may as well pay the bills first.
I take my chequebook off the table, and see that there is only one cheque
left. My extra cheques are in my desk in the study, so I go inside the house to my desk where I find the can of coke that I had been drinking.
I'm going to look for my cheques, but first I need to push
the coke aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over. I see that the coke is getting warm, and I decide I should put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.
As I head toward the kitchen with
the coke, a vase of flowers on the counter catches my eye: they need to be watered.
I place the coke down on the work surface, and I discover my reading glasses that I've been searching for all
I decide I better put them back on my desk, but first I'm going to water the flowers.
I set the glasses back down on the work top, fill a container with water and suddenly I spot the TV
remote. Someone has left it on the kitchen table.
I realise that tonight when we go to watch TV, I will be looking for the remote, but I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table, so I decide to
put it back in the lounge where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers.
I pour some water in the flowers, but quite a bit of it spills on the floor. So, I set the remote back down on the table,
get some towels and wipe up the spill.
Then, I head down the hall trying to remember what I was planning to do.
At the end of the day:
- The car isn't washed
- The bills aren't paid
- There is a warm can of coke sitting on the work surface
- The flowers don't have enough water
- There is still only one cheque in my chequebook
- I can't find the remote
- I can't find my glasses and I don't remember what I did with the car keys.
Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I'm really baffled because
I know I was busy all day long, and I'm really tired. I realise this is a serious problem, and I'll try to get some help for it, but first I'll check my e-mail.
PS. I just remembered, I left the

A priest was being honoured at his retirement dinner after 25 years in the parish. A leading local politician, who was also a member of the congregation, was chosen to make the presentation and give a little
speech at the dinner. He was delayed so the priest decided to say his own few words while they waited.
'I got my first impression of the parish from the first confession I heard here. I thought I
had been assigned to a terrible place. The very first person who entered my confessional told me he had stolen a television set and, when stopped by the police, had almost murdered the officer. He had stolen
money from his parents, embezzled from his place of business, had an affair with his boss's
wife, taken illegal drugs. I was appalled. But as the days went on I knew that my people were not all like that and I
had, indeed, come to a fine parish full of good and loving people.'
Just as the priest finished his talk the politician arrived full of apologies at being late. He immediately began to make the
presentation and give his speech.
'I'll never forget the first day our parish priest arrived, 'said the politician.'
In fact, I had the honour of being the first one to go to him in confession.'
Lost in his own back yard?
One day a police panda car pulled up to Granny's
home and Grampy got out. The constable explained that this elderly gentlemen had said he was lost in the Victoria park.
'Why, Ivor, 'said Granny, 'You've been going there for over 30 years! How on earth could you say you had got lost?'
Leaning close to Granny so the police officer couldn't
hear, he whispered, 'Wasn't
exactly lost. I was just
too tired to walk home.'
Dear Mrs. Marsh,
Over the past six months, your husband, Mr Joseph Marsh has been causing quite a commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this type of behaviour and have considered banning your entire

loudly, 'There is no toilet paper in here!'
Do you think that Mr Marsh's
retirement story is a true story, or a hoax? Will and Guy are not sure.
It is important for men to
remember that, as women grow older, it becomes harder for them to maintain the same quality of housekeeping as they did when they were younger. When men notice this, they should try not to yell. Let me relate
how I handle the situation.
When I got laid off from my consulting job and took '
in March, it became necessary for Nadine to get a full-time job, both for extra income and for the health
benefits that we need. It was shortly after she started working that I noticed that she was beginning to show her age.
I usually get home from fishing or hunting about the same time she gets home from work.
Although she knows how hungry I am, she almost always says that she has to rest for half an hour or so before she starts supper. I try not to yell; instead I tell her to take her time and just wake me when she
finally does get supper on the table. She used to do the dishes as soon as we finished eating. It is now not unusual for them to sit on the table for several hours after supper. I do what I can by reminding her
several times each evening that they aren't
cleaning themselves. I know she appreciates this, as it does seem to help her get them done before she goes to bed. Now that she is older, she seems to get tired
so much more quickly. Our washer and dryer are in the basement. Sometimes she says she just can't
make another trip down those steps. I don't
make a big issue of this. As long as she finishes up the laundry the
next evening, I am willing to overlook it.
Not only that, but unless I need something ironed to wear to the Monday lodge meeting or to Wednesday's
poker club or to Tuesday's
bowling or something like that, I will tell her to wait until the next evening to do the ironing. This gives her a little more time to do some of those odds and ends things like shampooing the dog, vacuuming or
Also, if I have a really good day of fishing, this allows her to gut and scale the fish at a more leisurely pace.
Nadine is starting to complain a little occasionally. For example, she will say
that it is difficult for her to find time to pay the monthly bills during her lunch hour. In spite of her complaining, I continue to try to offer encouragement. I tell her to stretch it out over two or even
three days. That way she won't
have to rush so much. I also remind her that missing lunch completely now and then wouldn't
hurt her any, if you know what I mean.
When doing simple jobs, she seems to think
she needs more rest periods. She had to take a break when she was only half finished mowing the yard. I try not to embarrass her when she needs these little extra rest breaks. I tell her to fix herself a nice,
big, cold glass of freshly squeezed lemonade and just sit for a while. I tell her that, as long as she is making one for herself, she may as well make one for me and take her break by the hammock so she can
talk with me until I fall asleep.
I know that I probably look like a saint in the way I support Nadine on a daily basis. I'm not saying that the ability to show this much consideration is easy. Many men will
find it difficult. Some will find it impossible. No one knows better than I do how frustrating women can become as they get older. However, guys, even if you just yell at your wife a little less often because
of this article, I will consider that writing it was worthwhile.
funeral was on Saturday, April 25th
Nadine was acquitted Monday, April 27th.
Retire from Golf?
'How was your game, dear?' Jacqui asked her husband, Tony, after he had returned from playing golf.
'Well, I was hitting the ball pretty well, but my eyesight's got so bad I
couldn't see where it went,' Tony answered.
'That's not surprising,' Jacqui replied. 'After all, you are 76 years old, Tony. Why don't you take my brother Stewart along?'
'Because he's 87 and
doesn't play golf anymore,' Tony commented dryly.
'I know, but he's got perfect eyesight. He could watch the ball for you.' Jacqui added.
The next day Tony teed off with Stewart looking on.
Tony swung and the ball disappeared down the middle of the fairway.
'Can you see it?' demanded Tony.
'Yeah,' Stewart said smiling.
'Well, where is it?' Tony asked, peering off into the
distance in search of the ball that was now out of his eyesight range.
'I forget.' mumbled Stewart.
Three Old Men
Three elderly gentlemen were talking about what their grandchildren would be saying about them fifty years from now.
'I would like my grandchildren to say, 'He was successful in business'
, declared the first man.
'Fifty years from now, 'said the second, 'I want them to say, 'He was a loyal family man'
Turning to the third gent, the first gent asked, 'So what do you
want them to say about you in fifty years?'
the third man replied. 'I want them all to say, 'He certainly looks good for his age!'
You remember: the tune from 'The Sound of Music'
Rennies and nose drops and needles for knitting,
Zimmers and handrails and new dental fittings,
Bundles of magazines tied up in string,
These are a few of my favourite things.
Cadillacs, cataracts, hearing aids,
Polident, Fixodent, false teeth in glasses,
Pacemakers, golf carts and porches with swings,
These are a few of
my favourite things.
When the pipes leak,
When the bones creak,
I simply remember my favourite things,
And then I don't feel so bad.
