LOST IN THE DARNEDEST PLACES
An elderly Floridian called 911 on her cell phone to report that her car has been broken into.
She is hysterical as she explains her situation to the dispatcher: 'They've stolen the stereo, the
steering wheel, the brake pedal and even the accelerator!' she cried.
The dispatcher said, 'Stay calm. An officer is on the way.'
A few minutes later, the officer radios in. 'Disregard,' he says.
'She got in the back-seat by mistake.'
Three sisters, ages 92, 94 and 96, live in a house together. One night the 96-year old draws a bath. She puts her foot in & pauses. She yells to the other sisters,
'Was I getting in or out of the bath?'
The 94-year-old yells back, 'I don't know. I'll come up & see.'
She starts up the stairs and pauses, 'Was I going up the stairs or down?'
The 92-year-old is sitting at the kitchen table having tea listening to her sisters.
She shakes her head & says, 'I sure hope I never get that forgetful, knock on wood.'
She then yells, 'I'll come up & help both of you as soon as I see who's at the door.'
'I CAN HEAR JUST FINE!'
Three retirees, each with a hearing loss, were playing golf one fine March day.
One remarked to the other, 'Windy, isn't it?'
'No,' the second man replied, 'it's Thursday.'
And the third man chimed in, 'So am I. Let's have a beer ....'
A little old lady was going up & down the halls in a nursing home. As she walked, she would flip up the hem of her night-gown & say 'Supersex.'
She walked up to an elderly man in a wheelchair. Flipping her gown at him, she said, 'Supersex.'
He sat silently for a moment or two and finally answered, 'I'll take the soup..'
Two elderly ladies had been friends for many decades. Over the years, they had shared all kinds of activities & adventures
Lately, their activities had been limited to meeting a few times a week to play cards.
One day, they were playing cards when one looked at the other & said, 'Now don't get mad at me. I know we've been friends for a long time, but I just can't think of your name! I've thought &
thought, but I can't remember it.
Please tell me what your name is '
Her friend glared at her. For at least three minutes she just stared & glared at her.
Finally she said, 'How soon do you need to know?'
As a senior citizen was driving down the freeway, his car phone rang.. Answering, he heard his wife's voice urgently warning him, 'Ernie, I just heard on the news that there's a car going the wrong way on Interstate 77. Please be careful!'
'Heck,' said Ernie, 'It's not just one car. It's hundreds of them!'
Two elderly women were out driving in a large car - both could barely see over the dashboard. As they were cruising along, they came to an intersection. The stoplight was red, but they just went on through.
The woman in the passenger seat thought to herself, 'I must be losing it. I could have sworn we just went through a red light.'
After a few more minutes, they came to another intersection & the light was red again. Again, they went right through.
The woman in the passenger seat was almost sure that the light had been red but was really concerned that she was losing it. She was getting nervous.
At the next intersection, sure enough, the light was red & they went on through.
So, she turned to the other woman & said, 'Mildred, did you know that we just ran through three red lights in a row? You could have killed us both!'
Mildred turned to her & said, 'Oh, crap, am I driving?'"Government's first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives."
Life is a story; if you stay on the same page forever you will never finish it.
