We get closer to the holidays and I get more nervous as the days go by. I really don’t have much to speak of to start this issue out, so I’m just going to jump right into the laughter and see if maybe things present themselves as we go along.
A Little Poem For Seniors
Another year has passed
And we’re a little older.
Last summer felt hotter
And winter seems colder.
There was a time not long ago
When life was quite a blast.
Now I fully understand
About ‘Living in the Past’
We used to go to weddings,
Football games and lunches…
Now we go to funeral homes
And after-funeral brunches.
We used to go out dining,
And couldn’t get our fill.
Now we ask for doggie bags,
Come home and take a pill.
We used to often travel
To places near and far.
Now we get sore asses
From riding in the car.
We used to go to nightclubs
And drink a little booze.
Now we stay home at night
And watch the evening news.
That, my friend is how life is,
And now my tale is told.
So, enjoy each day and live it up…
Before you’re too damned old!
I used to laugh at things like this and now I just think, “How true…”
A drunk gets on a bus. The driver, impatient while the drunk fumbles in his pocket for change, drives off.
As the bus starts rolling, the drunk reacts to the sudden movement by stumbling all the way to the back of the bus.
The bus stops at the next stop. He reacts by stumbling to the front of the bus.
Still the man is fumbling in his pockets for change. The bus jerks forward once again, and the drunk stumbles uncontrollably to the back of the bus.
Next stop, the same thing happens. Every time the bus stops, the man would stagger to the front. Every time the bus starts, he staggers uncontrollably to the back.
A few stops later the drunk exits the bus from the front.
“Hey”, shouts the bus driver… “You didn’t pay your fare yet!”
The drunk, reeling, shouts back “Why should I? . I walked all the way!”
Kiss the dragon under the mistletoe
Grammar: The difference between feeling you’re nuts, and feeling your nuts.
Employer: We just want you to know just how much we appreciate everything you do for this company. If there is anything you need, let us know.
Me: Well a raise, some more training, and enough staff would be nice.
Employer: We were thinking more like a pizza party.

A man visits his aunt in the nursing home. It turns out that she is taking a nap, so he just sits down in a chair in her room, flips through a few magazines, and munches on some peanuts sitting in a bowl on the table.
Eventually, the aunt wakes up, and her nephew realizes he’s absentmindedly finished the entire bowl. “I’m so sorry, auntie, I’ve eaten all of your peanuts!”
“That’s okay, dearie,” the aunt replied. “After I’ve sucked the chocolate off, I don’t care for them anyway.”
“Skipper,” the sailor said to his captain as he saluted, “A special message just came in for you from the admiral. I have it right here.”
“Read it to me,” the captain ordered.
The sailor began reading nervously, “You are without a doubt the most idiotic, lame-brained officer ever to command a ship in the United States Navy.”
The skipper responded, “Have that communication decoded at once!”
On a street, where the speed is limited to 30 mph, the police stop a driver.
“Not only have you been driving too fast, you’ve been passing cars where it is not allowed. Your lights don’t work, your tires all completely worn out. This is surely going to cost you a lot. What’s your name?”
“Schtrathewisizeski Vocgefastilongchinic”, replied the foreign driver.
“Well, I’ll let you go this time, but don’t do it again.”
And that is it for another day, my dear friends. May you be blessed with love and happiness until we meet again.
