I’m Not Leaving London ‘Til I’m Done

4 Sep

I started the finish of my London story – I really did – after eight weeks’ worth of ironing fell out of the cupboard and said ‘Do me or the washing machine gets it!’ and I thought I’d better do it so I did; but then I remembered Spud’s Personal Statement for his university application (for which he had eight weeks to work on it, and didn’t) which I had insisted he send to me for proof reading/heavy editing and which had to be sent off by five o’clock today so I proofread/heavily edited it then we argued for a bit about my changes and then he made all the changes and then he sent it off, by which time it was dog walk time dinner time clear up after dinner time fall into bed time get out of bed to schedule tomorrow’s joke time and might as well write this post while I’m at it time.

As for London…like the Eagles in Hotel California, we may never leave.

Why Seniors still need newspapers:

I was visiting my daughter last night when I asked if I could borrow a newspaper.

“This is the 21st century, Dad,” she said. “We don’t waste money on newspapers. Here, use my iPad.”

I can tell you this…that fly never knew what hit him.


Thanks to my friend Bluebee

for this one.


A retired man who volunteers to entertain patients in nursing homes and hospitals went to one local hospital and took his portable keyboard along. He told some jokes and sang some funny songs at patients’ bedsides.

When he finished he said, in farewell, “I hope you get better.”

One elderly gentleman replied, “I hope you get better, too.”
