An old man can see backward better than a young one can see forward. ~proverb

I am clearing out some files so this is a tad long...
The Senior's Breakfast Special

We went to breakfast at a restaurant where the "Senior's Special" was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $1.99.

"Sounds good," my wife said. "But I don't want the eggs."

"Then I'll have to charge you two-dollars and forty-nine cents because you're ordering a la carte," the waitress warned her.

"You mean I'd have to pay for not taking the eggs?" my wife asked incredulously.

"YES!!" stated the waitress.

"I'll take the special."

"How do you want your eggs?"

"Raw and in the shell," my wife replied. She took the two eggs home.

They have been around the block more than once.
Three Old Ladies
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!"

Grandma & Grandpa Televison Evangelist

Grandma and Grandpa were watching a healing service on the television. The evangelist called to all who wanted to be healed to go to their television set, place one hand on the TV and the other hand on the bodypart where they wanted to be healed.

Grandma got up and slowly hobbled to the television set, placed her right hand on the set and her left hand on her arthritic shoulder that was causing her to have great pain.
Then Grandpa got up, went to the TV, placed his right hand on the set and his left hand on his crotch.

Grandma scowled at him and said, "I guess you just don't get it. The purpose of doing this is to heal the sick, not to raise the dead!"
The Viewing

An old man, Mr. Goldstein, was living the last of his life in a nursing home. One day he appeared to be very sad and depressed. Nurse Tracy asked if there was anything wrong.

"Yes, Nurse Tracy," said Mr. Goldstein, "My penis died today, and I am very sad."

Knowing her patients were forgetful and sometimes a little crazy, she replied, "Oh, I'm so sorry, Mr. Goldstein, please accept my condolences."

The following day, Mr. Goldstein was walking down the hall with his penis hanging out of his pajamas, when he met Nurse Tracy.

"Mr. Goldstein," she said, "You shouldn't be walking down the hall like this. Please put your penis back inside your pajamas."

"But, Nurse Tracy," replied Mr. Goldstein, "I told you yesterday that my penis died."

"Yes, you did tell me that, but why is it hanging out of your pajamas?" asked Nurse Tracy.

"Well," he replied. "Today's the viewing."

Hi Rageddy -- Those are wonderful stories. I can relate to a few but I don't have many of those problems (yet).
Thanks for the visit and your comment about the Red Bud trees. They don't last long but we sure do like them while they're here.
Also, I sure can't get away with linking to you without getting caught. I hope you saw my March 2 post giving you credit for pointing out that 107 year old blogger. Maybe she does a few of your 'senior things' detailed here?
Thanks again.

Very Funny, my dear...and yet....OY! Some things here though funny have quite a lot of truth to them....The going upstairs and not remembering where you were going....! OY! I cannot tell you how many times I might go from the kitchen to the bedroom, ir vica versa, and not remember what I went in there for! LOL!
I've always loved the one where the guy knocks on wood...I've always heard the punchline this way...He knocks on wood...and says, "Come in!" LOL!

The jokes are a hoot! I'm going to copy them and send to my mom; she and Dad will get a kick out of them. If there's one thing I've learned is not to mess with seniors.

Have a wonderful day!
Love & hugs,

Now then, take me, for instance. I NEVER make fun of our wizened citizens, mostly on accounta I am one of them. And I am never funny or odd like that, so these are all lies, I reckon.

(BTW, when that guy finishes with the viewing, bury his penis 6 feet deep. It probably doesn't matter that he is still attached to it.)
