Getting Old

Postby ferri » Feb 2nd, 2006, 10:57 am

A very elderly gentleman, (mid nineties) very well
dressed, hair well groomed, great looking suit, flower in his lapel smelling
slightly of a good after shave, presenting a well looked-after image,
walks into an upscale cocktail lounge.
Seated at the bar is an elderly looking lady, (mid eighties).
The gentleman walks over, sits alongside of her, orders a drink, takes a
sip, turns to her and says, "So tell me, do I come here often?"

<><><><><><><>


An elderly gentleman had serious hearing problems for a number of
years.
He went to the doctor and the doctor was able to have him fitted for
a set of hearing aids that allowed the gentleman to hear 100%.

The elderly gentleman went back in a month to the doctor and the doctor
said, "Your hearing is perfect. Your family must be really pleased that you
can hear again."
The gentleman replied, "Oh, I haven't told my family yet.
I just sit around and listen to the conversations. I've changed my will
three times!"

<><><><><><><>


Two elderly gentlemen from a retirement center were sitting on a
bench under a tree when one turns to the other and says: "Slim, I'm 83
years old now and I'm just full of aches and pains. I know you're about my
age. How do you feel?"
Slim says, "I feel just like a new-born baby."
"Really!? Like a new-born baby!?"
"Yep. No hair, no teeth, and I think I just wet my pants.

<><><><><><><>


An elderly couple had dinner at another couple's house, and after
eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen.
The two gentlemen were talking, and one said, "Last night we went out to
a new restaurant and it was really great. I would recommend it very highly.
The other man said, "What is the name of the restaurant?"
The first man thought and thought and finally said, "What is the name of
that flower you give to someone you love? You know... the one that's red and has thorns."

"Do you mean a rose?"

"Yes, that's the one," replied the man. He then turned towards the kitchen
and yelled, "Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last night?


<><><><><><><>


Hospital regulations require a wheelchair for patients being discharged.
However, while working as a student nurse, I found one elderly
gentleman--already dressed and sitting on the bed with a suitcase at his
feet--who insisted he didn't need my help to leave the hospital.

After a chat about rules being rules, he reluctantly let me wheel him to
the elevator. On the way down I asked him if his wife was meeting him.

"I don't know," he said. "She's still upstairs in the bathroom changing
out of her hospital gown."

As a young minister, I was asked by a funeral director to hold a grave-side service for a homeless man, with no family or friends, who had died while traveling through the area. The funeral was to be held at a cemetery way back in the country, and this man would be the first to be laid to rest there.

As I was not familiar with the backwoods area, I became lost; and being a typical man I did not stop for directions. I finally arrived an hour late. I saw the crew, eating lunch, but the hearse was nowhere in sight. I apologized to the workers for my tardiness, and stepped to the side of the open grave, where I saw the vault lid already in place. I assured the workers I would not hold them long but this was the proper thing to do.

The workers gathered around, still eating their lunch. I poured out my heart and soul. As I preached, the workers began to say "Amen," "Praise the Lord," and "Glory," I preached, and I preached, like I'd never preached before:
from Genesis all the way to Revelations.

I closed the lengthy service with a prayer and walked to my car. I felt I had done my duty for the homeless man and that the crew would leave with a renewed sense of purpose and dedication, in spite of my tardiness.

As I was opening the door and taking off my coat, I overheard one of the workers saying to another, "I ain't never seen anything like this before . . . and I've been putting in septic tanks for twenty years."

"Senor Lucky? This is Ernesto the caretaker at your country
house."

"Ah yes, Ernesto. What can I do for you? Is there a problem?"

"Um, I am just calling to advise you, Senor, that your parrot
died."

"My parrot? Dead? The one that won the International competition?"

"Si, Senor,that's the one."

"D*mn! That's a pity! I spent a small fortune on that bird. "What
did he die from?"

"From eating rotten meat, Senor"

"Rotten meat? Who the heck fed him rotten meat?"

"Nobody, Senor. He ate the meat of the dead horse."

"Dead horse? What dead horse?"

"The thoroughbred, Senor Lucky. He died from all that work pulling
the water cart."

"Are you insane? What water cart?"

"The one we used to put out the fire, Senor"

"Good Lord! What fire are you talking about, man?"

"The one at your house, Senor! A candle fell and the curtains
caught on fire."

"What the.....!!! But there's electricity at the house!!! What was
the candle for?"

"For the funeral, Senor."

"WHAT BLOODY FUNERAL?!"

"Your wife's, Senor...She showed up one night out of the blue and I
thought she was a thief, so I hit her with your new Tiger Woods NikeDriver."


SILENCE...................


"Ernesto if you broke that driver, you're in deep s**t!"

I had a dream the other night. I was in the old West riding in a stagecoach. Suddenly, a man riding a horse pulls up to the left side of the stagecoach, and a riderless horse pulls up on the right.

The man leans down, pulls open the door, and jumps off his horse into the stagecoach. Then he opens the door on the other side and jumps onto the other horse.

Just before he rode off, I yelled out,

"What was all that about?"

He replied,

"Nothing. It's just a stage I'm going through."

The religious cowboy lost his favorite Bible while he was mending fences out on the range.

Three weeks later a cow walked up to him carrying the Bible in its mouth.

The cowboy couldn't believe his eyes. He took the precious book out of the cow's mouth, raised his eyes heavenward and exclaimed, "It's a miracle!"

"Not really," said the cow. "Your name is written inside the cover."

A little girl: was talking to her teacher about whales.
The teacher: said it was physically impossible for a whale to
swallow a human because even though it was a very large mammal
its throat was very small.


The little girl: stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale.


Irritated, the teacher: reiterated that a whale could not
swallow a human; it was physically impossible.


The little girl: said, "When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah".


The teacher: asked, " What if Jonah went to hell?"


The little girl: replied, "Then you ask him".

¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°


A Kindergarten teacher: was observing her classroom of children
while they were drawing. She would occasionally walk around to
see each child's work.


As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she
asked what the drawing was.


The girl: replied, "I'm drawing God."


The teacher: paused and said, "But no one knows what God looks
like."


Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the
girl replied, "They will in a minute."


¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°

A Sunday school teacher: was discussing the Ten Commandments
with her five and six year olds.


After explaining the commandment to "honor" thy Father and thy
Mother, she asked, "Is there a commandment that teaches us how
to treat our brothers and sisters?"


Without missing a beat one little boy: (the oldest of a family)
answered, "Thou shall not kill."

¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°


One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the
dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother
had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her
brunette head.


She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, "Why are some
of your hairs white, Mom?"


Her mother replied, "Well, every time that you do something
wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white."


The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and
then said, "Momma, how come ALL of grandma's hairs are white?"

¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°


The children had all been photographed, and the teacher was
trying to persuade them each to buy a copy of the group picture.


"Just think how nice it will be to look at it when you are all
grown up and say, 'There's Jennifer, she's a lawyer,' or 'That's
Michael, He's a doctor.'


A small voice at the back of the room rang out, "And there's the
teacher, She's dead. "

¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°


A teacher was giving a lesson on the circulation of the blood.
Trying to make the matter clearer, she said, "Now, class, if I
stood on my head, the blood, as you know, would run into it, and
I would turn red in the face.."
"Yes," the class said.


"Then why is it that while I am standing upright in the ordinary
position the blood doesn't run into my feet?"


A little fellow shouted,


"Cause your feet ain't empty."

¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°¨¨°¡!¡°


The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic
elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray,


"Take only ONE. God is watching."


Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the
table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies.


A child had written a note, "Take all you want. God is watching
the apples.

Two antennas met on a roof, fell in love and got married. The ceremony wasn't much, but the reception was excellent.

A man and his wife are sitting in the living room and he says to her:

"Just so you know, I never want to live in a vegetative state dependent
on some machine. If that ever happens, just pull the plug."

So, his wife gets up and unplugs the TV.

Obedient wife


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 me."



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 your husband." 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."

"You mean to tell me you 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 check. If he can cash it, he can spend it."

This year's 10 winners of the Bulwer-Lytton contest, aka "Dark and Stormy Night Contest" (run by the English Dept. of San Jose State University), wherein one writes only the first line of a bad novel:

10) "As a scientist, Throckmorton knew that if he were ever to break wind in the echo chamber, he would never hear the end of it."

9) "Just beyond the Narrows, the river widens."

8.) "With a curvaceous figure that Venus would have envied, a tanned, unblemished oval face framed with lustrous thick brown hair, deep azure-blue eyes fringed with long black lashes, perfect teeth that vied for competition, and a small straight nose, Marilee had a beauty that defied description."

7) "Andre, a simple peasant, had only one thing on his mind as he crept along the East wall: 'Andre creep... Andre creep... Andre creep.'"

6) "Stanislaus Smedley, a man always on the cutting edge of narcissism, was about to give his body and soul to a back alley sex-change surgeon to become the woman he loved."

5) "Although Sarah had an abnormal fear of mice, it did not keep her from eeking out a living at a local pet store."

4) "Stanley looked quite bored and somewhat detached, but then penguins often do."

3) "Like an over-ripe beefsteak tomato rimmed with cottage cheese, the corpulent remains of Santa Claus lay dead on the hotel floor."

2) "Mike Hardware was the kind of private eye who didn't know the meaning of the word 'fear'; a man who could laugh in the face of danger and spit in the eye of death -- in short, a moron with suicidal tendencies."

AND THE WINNER IS...

1) "The sun oozed over the horizon, shoved aside darkness, crept along the greensward, and, with sickly fingers, pushed through the castle window, revealing the pillaged princess, hand at throat, crown asunder, gaping in frenzied horror at the sated, sodden amphibian lying beside her, disbelieving the magnitude of the frog's deception, screaming madly, 'You lied!"

Little Bobby was spending the weekend with his grandmother
after a particularly trying week in kindergarten. His
grandmother decided to take him to the park on Saturday
morning. It had been snowing all night and everything was
beautiful.

His grandmother remarked..."doesn't it look like an artist
painted this scenery? Did you know God painted this just for
you?"

Bobby said, "Yes, God did it and he did it left handed."

This confused his grandmother a bit, and she asked him
"What makes you say God did this with his left hand?"

"Well," said Bobby, "we learned at Sunday School last week
that Jesus sits on God's right hand!"
