A distraught older woman [about my age] is looking at herself in the mirror and crying. Her voice shakes as she says to her husband, “I’m so old. I’m so fat. I look horrible. I really need a compliment.”

Her husband, determined to quickly give his beloved the comfort she needs, exclaims, “Damn, you have good eyesight!”

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.

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.”

Modern art, or absent-mindedness?

I think I may have posted a few of these before but some of them are new and all of them are funny.

Points To Ponder As You Get Older

  • If walking is good for your health, the postman would be immortal.
  • A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks water, but is still fat.
  • A rabbit runs and hops and only lives 15 years, while a tortoise doesn’t run and does nothing, yet it lives for 150 years.
  • Just grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked, the good fortune to remember the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.
  • I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it.
  • My wild oats are mostly enjoyed with prunes and All Bran.
  • I finally got my head together, and now my body is falling apart.
  • Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.
  • Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.
  • If all is not lost, then where the heck is it ?
  • It was a whole lot easier to get older than to get wiser.
  • I wish the buck really did stop here, I sure could use a few of them.
  • Kids in the back seat cause accidents.
  • Accidents in the back seat cause kids.
  • It’s hard to make a comeback when you haven’t been anywhere.
  • The world only beats a path to your door when you’re in the bathroom.
  • If God wanted me to touch my toes, he’d have put them on my knees.
  • When I’m finally holding all the right cards, everyone wants to play chess.
  • It’s not hard to meet expenses . . .they’re everywhere.
  • The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.
  • These days, I spend a lot of time thinking about the hereafter. . .I go somewhere to get something, and then wonder what I’m here after.
  • Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.

Oh Noes! I'm Getting OLD!

Two old men were sitting in the yard outside their care home one day.   Tim turned to Tom and said, “Tom, I’m really feeling my age today.  I just hurt all over. How are you feeling?”

 

Tom replied, “I feel just like a new born babe.”

 

Tim looked at him, startled. “A new born babe? Really?”

 

“Yep. I have no hair, no teeth, and I think I just wet my pants.”

What I’ve Learned As I Have Aged

  • I’ve learned that whatever hits the fan will not be evenly distributed.
  • I’ve learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is stalk them and hope they panic and give in.
  • I’ve learned that one good turn gets most of the blankets.
  • I’ve learned that you shouldn’t compare yourself to others – they are more screwed up than you think.
  • I’ve learned that it is not what you wear; it is how you take it off.
  • I’ve learned that you can keep vomiting long after you think you’re finished.
  • I’ve learned to not sweat the petty things, and not to pet the sweaty things.
  • I’ve learned that we are responsible for what we do, unless we are celebrities.
  • I’ve learned age is a very high price to pay for maturity.
  • I’ve learned that artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.

On Growing and Being Old

I confided to my best friend that I was having an affair.  She turned to me and asked, ‘Are you having it catered?’

Just before the funeral service, the undertaker asked the elderly widow, ‘How old was your husband?’

’98,’ she replied; ‘two years older than me.’

‘So you’re 96,’ the undertaker commented.

She responded, ‘Hardly worth going home, is it?’

Reporters interviewing a 104-year-old woman: ‘And what do you think is the best thing about being 104?’

The woman replied, ‘No peer pressure.’

I’ve sure gotten old!  I’ve had two bypass surgeries, a hip replacement, new knees, fought prostate cancer and diabetes.  I’m half blind, can’t hear anything  quieter than a jet engine, take 40 different medications that make me dizzy, winded, and subject to blackouts. I have poor circulation and can hardly feel my hands and feet anymore.  I can’t remember how many years it’s been since my 85th birthday.  But thank goodness, I still have my driver’s licence.

*

I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape, so I got my doctor’s permission to join a fitness club and start exercising.  I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors.  I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour.  But by the time I got my leotard on, the class was over.

An elderly woman decided to prepare her will and told her preacher she had two final requests.  First, she wanted to be cremated, and second, she wanted her ashes scattered over Wal-Mart.

‘Wal-Mart?’ the preacher exclaimed.  ‘Why Wal-Mart?’

‘Then I’ll be sure my daughters will visit me twice a week.’

My memory’s not as sharp as it used to be.

THE SENILITY PRAYER

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

Recently, I was diagnosed with AAADD – 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 needs washing.

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.

I 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.  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 cheque book 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 morning.  I decide I’d 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. 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 cheque book
* 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 decide I’ll search online to see if I can get some help for it, but first I’ll check my e-mail.

I just remembered: I left the water running.
