While visiting a retirement community, my wife and I decided to do some shopping and soon became separated. "Excuse me," I said, approaching a clerk. "I’m looking for my wife. She has white hair and is wearing white shoes." Gesturing around the store, the clerk responded, "Take your pick."
An older couple were lying in bed on night. The husband was falling asleep but the wife was in a romantic mood and wanted to talk. She said, ”You used to hold my hand when we were courting.” Wearily he reached across, held her hand for a second and tried to get back to sleep. A few months later she said, ”Then you used to kiss me.” Mildly irritated, he reached across, gave her a peck on the cheek and settled down to sleep. Thirty seconds later she said, ”Then you used to bite my neck.” Angrily, he threw back the bed clothes and got out of bed. “Where are you going?” she asked. “To go get my teeth.”
In a university classroom, they were discussing the qualifications to be President of the United States .It was pretty simple. The candidate must be a natural born citizen at least 35 years of age. However, one girl in the class immediately started in on how unfair it was of the requirement to be a natural born citizen. In short, her opinion was that this requirement prevented many capable individuals from becoming president. The class was taking it in and letting her rant, and not many jaws hit the floor when she wrapped up her argument by stating, "What makes a natural born citizen any more qualified to lead this country than one born by C-section?" Yes, how did you know she was blonde?
Thought for the day:
Be who you are and say what you feel...
because those that matter.. don't mind...
and those that mind...don't matter!
One day God was looking down at earth and saw all of the rascally retirees' behavior that was going on... So He called His angels and sent one to earth for a time. When the angel returned, he told God, 'Yes, it is bad on earth; 95% of retirees are misbehaving and only 5% are not. God thought for a moment and said, 'Maybe I had better send down a second angel to get another opinion.' So God called another angel and sent her to earth for a time. When the angel returned, she went to God and said, 'Yes, it's true. The earth is in decline; 95% of retirees are misbehaving, but 5% are being good.' God was not pleased. So God decided to e-mail the 5% who were good, because he wanted to encourage them, and give them a little something to help them keep going. Do you know what the e-mail said? Okay, I was just wondering, because I didn't get one either.
One summer evening during a violent thunderstorm a mother was tucking her son into bed. She was about to turn off the light when he asked with a tremor in his voice, “Mommy, will you sleep with me tonight?” The mother smiled and gave him a reassuring hug. “I can’t dear, I have to sleep in Daddy’s room.” A long silence was broken at last by his shaky little voice: “The big sissy.”
An elderly Floridian called 911 on her cell phone to report that her car has just been broken into. She is hysterical as she explains her situation to the dispatcher: “They’ve stolen the stereo, the steering wheel, the brake pedal and even the accelerator!” She cried. The dispatcher said, ”Stay calm. An officer is on the way.” A few minutes later, the officer radios in. “Disregard, she got in the backseat by mistake.”
I never married because there was no need. I have 3 pets at home which answer the same purpose as a husband. I have a dog which growls every morning, a parrot which swears all afternoon and a cat that comes home late at night.
Money can’t buy you happiness but it does bring you a more pleasant form of misery.
One day a man passed by a ranch and saw a beautiful horse. Hoping to buy the animal, he said to the rancher: "I think your horse looks pretty good, so I'll give you $500 for him." "He doesn't look so good, and he's not for sale," the rancher said. The man insisted, "I think he looks just fine and I'll up the price to $1,000." "He doesn't look so good," the rancher said, "but if you want him that much, he's yours." The next day the man came back raging mad. He went up to the rancher and screamed, "You sold me a blind horse. You cheated me!" The rancher calmly replied, "I told you he didn't look so good, didn't I?"
Sam was a retired-cowpoke-turned farmer. One day, Sam and his wife
was a'standin' near the edge of their pig-pen when the old woman
mentioned that right soon they'd be celebratin' their golden wedding
anniversary. It was the very next Thursday. "Let's have a party, Sammy," she said. "Let's kill a pig." Well, old Sam took off'n his Stetson n' scratched his head. "I dunno, Ethel," he finally answered. "I don't sees as to why the pig should take the blame for somethin' that happened fifty years ago!”
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Never miss a good chance to shut up.
One Day the Devil challenged the Lord to a baseball game. Smiling the Lord proclaimed, "You don't have a chance, I've got Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, and all the greatest players up here." "Yes", laughed the devil, "but I have all the umpires!"
Random Thoughts As We Age...
Wouldn't it be great if we could put ourselves in the dryer for ten minutes; come out wrinkle-free and three sizes smaller!
Last year I joined a support group for procrastinators. We haven't met yet!
I don't trip over things, I do random gravity checks!
Old age is coming at a really bad time!
You know why it’s hard
to be happy?
It’s because we refuse
to let go
of the things
that make us sad.
He stormed into the kitchen and walked directly up to his wife. Pointing a finger in her face, he said sternly, “From now on”, you need to know that I AM the MAN of this house, and my word is law! You will prepare me a gourmet meal tonight, and when I’m finished eating my meal, you will serve me a sumptuous dessert afterward. Then, after dinner, you are going to draw me a bath so I can relax. You will wash my back and towel me dry and bring me my robe. Then you will massage my feet and hands. Then after that’s done, guess who’s going to dress me and comb my hair? His wife replied… “The funeral director would be my guess”
I named my dog “5 Miles” so I can tell people I walk 5 miles a day.

An exasperated mother, who son was always getting into mischief, finally asked him, “ How do you expect to get into heaven?” The boy thought about it over and said, “ Well, I’ll run in and out and in and out and keep slamming the door until St. Peter says, “ For heaven’s sake, Dylan, come in or stay out!”
