is usually in July and the second time is usually in December!"

toilet paper."

other, pointed toward Albert, and said, "He's a darned fool. That
seagull will be a mile away by the time Albert gets back with the 
toilet paper."

plan on being in the cabin except for sleeping anyway.

until late at night.  When they returned to their cabin, the husband
tapped his wife on the shoulder and asked "Up or down" (referring to 
the bunk beds).  She gave him a quizzical look and then just went nuts
kissing him all over etc.  They had the best sex they had had in years!

  There was a little old man who really took care of his body.
He lifted weights and jogged six miles every day. One morning he
looked into the mirror and was admiring his body, when he noticed
that he was suntanned over his entire body with the exception of
his penis. He decided to do something about it. He promptly went
tp the beach, completely undressed and buried himself in the sand
except for his penis.
  Just then two old ladies were strolling along the sand, one
walking with a cane. Upon seeing this thing sticking out of the
sand, she began to move it about with her cane. She remarked to
the other little old lady; "There ain't hardly no justice in this
world".
  The other little old lady asked; "What do you mean by that?"
  "Well she said: "When I was 20 I was curious about it. When I 
was 30 I enjoyed it. When I was 40 I asked for it When I was 50
I paid for it; When I was 60 I prayed for it. When I was 70 I 
forgot about it. And now that I'm 80 the damn things are growing 
wild and I'm to old to squat."

RETIREMENT

My nookie days are over,
My pilot light is out,
What used to be my sex appeal,
Is now my water spout.
Time was when of its own accord,
From my trousers it would spring,
But now I have a full time job,
To find the blasted thing.
It used to be embarrassing,
The way it would behave,
For every single morning,
It would stand and watch me shave.
As old age approaches,
It sure gives me the blues,
To see it hang it's withered head,
And watch me tie my shoes.



YOU'RE NO LONGER "COOL" WHEN...

You find yourself listening to talk radio.

You daughter says she got pierced and you look at her ears.

The pattern on your shorts and couch match.

You fondly remember your powder blue leisure suit.

You actually ASK for your father's advice.

You don't know how to operate a fax machine.

When someone mentions SURFING you picture waves and a surf board.

You remember the "Rolling Stones" as a rock group not a corporation.

You turn down free tickets to a concert because you have to work the
next day.

You bought your first car for the same price you paid for your kid's
new running shoes.

When jogging is something you do to your memory.

Rocking all night means dozing off in your rocking chair.

All the cars behind you turn on their headlights.



  I have become a lot more social with the passing of the years; 
some might even call me a frivoulous old gal.  I'm seeing five 
gentlemen every day.
  As soon as I wake, Will Power helps me get out of bed. Then I 
go to see John. then Charley Horse comes along, and when he is 
here he takes a lot of my time and attention.  When he leaves, 
Arthur Ritis shows up and stays the rest of the day.  (He doesn't 
like to stay in one place very long, so he takes me from joint to 
joint.)  After such a busy day, I'm really tired and glad to go 
to bed -- with Ben Gay.
  What a life!
P.S.  The preacher came to call the other day.  He said that at my 
age I should be thinking about the hereafter.  I told him I do...
all the time. No matter where I am -- in the parlor, upstairs in 
the kitchen or down in the basement -- I ask myself - "Now where 
should I be here after?"

their teeth, stones in their kidneys, lead in their feet and gas in 
their stomachs.  


At eighty, there are six women for every man. What a time to
get odds like that.


The best time for men to have babies is when they're eighty.
That's when they have to get up ten times a night anyway!


 Old age is when a woman buys a sheer nightie and doesn't know anyone
who can see through it!


She doesn't show her age, but if you look under her makeup it's there.


What's 40 feet long and smells of urine?
20 senior citizen line dancers.


What will you find between a sixty year old woman's breasts that
 you won't find between those of a twenty-five-year old.
Why a belly button of course.


A Little Mixed-Up

Just a line to say I'm living,
That I'm not among the dead;
Though I'm getting more forgetful,
And more mixed up in the head.

For some times I can't remember,
When I stand at the foot of the stairs,
If I must go up for something,
Or if I've just come down from there.

And before the fridge, so often,
My poor mind is filled with doubt,
Have I just put food away, or,
Have I come to take some out.

And there's time when it's dark out,
With my night cap on my head,
I don't know if I'm retiring,
Or just getting out of bed.

So, it's my turn to write you,
There's no need in getting sore,
I may think that I have written,
And don't want to be a bore.

So, remember, I do love you,
And I wish you were here,
But now it's nearly mail time
So I must say good-bye dear.

There I stood beside the mail box,
With a face so very red,
Instead of mailing you a letter,
I have opened it instead.



  An 81-year-old woman, an alumna of a fine school, was asked by a 
younger alumni to make a contribution to their school's fund-raising 
campaign. The older woman said she'd be glad to make a gift.
  "That's wonderful! Would you like to make that into a pledge over 
three years?"
  "A pledge?" said the elderly woman. "Why, at my age I don't even 
buy green bananas any more."

 

WHAT HAPPENED TO GRANDMA?

In the dim and distant past,
When life's tempo wasn't fast,
Grandma used to rock and knit,
Crochet, tat and babysit.

When the kids were in a jam,
They could always count on Gram.
In an age of gracious living,
Grandma was the gal for giving.

Grandma now is at the gym,
Exercising to keep slim.
She's off touring with the bunch;
Taking clients out to lunch.

Driving north to ski or curl;
All her days are in a whirl.
Nothing seems to stop or block her,
Now that Grandma's off her rocker!



  There was once a couple in their seventies who, nevertheless, 
had a baby. Of course the newspaper sent out a reporter to take 
and picture and write a story about this unusual event, but when 
he arrived the couple told him that he would have to wait until 
the baby woke up before taking the picture. Meanwhile the local 
radio station sent out a crew to get a story of the baby and his 
elderly parents. They, too, were told that they would have to wait 
until the baby woke up before they could see the baby. The news 
of this miraculous event had, meanwhile, spread far and wide, and 
CNN news sent a crew to get a story and take pictures of the baby 
and his parents. This crew, also, was told that they would have 
to wait for the baby to wake up before they could take pictures. 
Then one of the group asked why they would have to wait; surely 
they could see and take pictures of the baby even if he were 
asleep.
  Well, the parents said, you will have to wait until the baby 
wakes up and cries, because we have forgotten where we put him.



  His four children were gathered around Mr. Staley's death bed. 
As the eighty-year-old man seemed to doze off in a blissful sleep, 
the children started to discuss the final funeral plans. One wanted 
to spend a thousand dollars for a coffin, a second thought a plain 
wooden box would do, and the third was even ready to dump the 
remains into a paper sack. All agreed there was no reason to spend 
much money, as their father would never know the difference.
  Mr. Staley stirred. Having heard every word, he thought it was  
time to set the record straight. "Children," he said, "I've never 
told  you this and never wanted to, but I can't go to my final 
resting place  with this burden. My darling children, your mother 
and I were never married."
  His oldest son was aghast. "You mean we're....."
  Mr. Staley said, "Yup. And cheap ones too!"



  A deaf old lady had a tendency to shout when she went to
confession.   When the priest asked her to speak more quietly, 
since everyone in the church could hear, she shouted, "What did 
you say?"
  So he carefully told her that she should write down what she had 
to say, in advance.
  At her next confession, she knelt and handed a piece of paper to 
the priest.  He looked at it and said, "What is this?  It looks like 
a grocery list."
  "Glory be!" said the lady. "I must have left my sins at the A&P!"



  Once upon a time there was an elderly gentleman that was suffering 
from Alzheimer's.  His wife of 40 years loved him very much, but she 
couldn't handle him any longer.  He would wander about never knowing 
where he was or sometimes even who he was.  She took him to a nursing 
home. At the nursing home, while the wife was filling out paperwork, 
a nurse had the gentleman sit in a chair.  Suddenly the man starting 
slowly leaning to his left.  The nurse ran over and put a pillow on 
his left side to prop him up.  A few minutes later, he started leaning 
to his right.  Again, the nurse ran over and put a pillow on his right
side. Then he starting leaning forward. This time, the nurse strapped 
him into the chair. About this time, his wife, having completed the 
paperwork, walked up to him and asked, "How do you like the place?"
  "It's okay," he said.  "But, they won't let me fart."
