AUTHOR3AE25My mother always tells me the best way to approach old age is to laugh at it. Well, she’s doing great, so today’s jokes do exactly that. Here you are Mum. Hope they make you chuckle!

My thanks go to Mel Parish, author of Ulterior Motives and Silent Lies for these today. You can find out more about Mel by clicking HERE or HERE. Go and say hello to her. I was checking out her page for this post and was so intrigued by the blurb for last her book that I nipped over to Amazon and bought it. Looks exciting.

An elderly couple had dinner at another couple’s house, and after eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen. 
The two gentlemen were talking, and one said, “Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great. I would recommend it very highly.”
The other man said, “What is the name of the restaurant?”
The first man thought and thought and finally said, “What’s the name of that flower you give to someone you love? You know, the one that’s red and has thorns.” 
“Do you mean a rose?”
“Yes, that’s the one,’”replied the man. He then turned towards the kitchen and yelled, “Rose, what’s the name of that restaurant we went to last night?”

Hospital regulations require a wheel chair for patients being discharged. However, while working as a student nurse, I found one elderly gentleman already dressed and sitting on the bed with a suitcase at his feet, who insisted he didn’t need my help to leave the hospital.
After a chat about rules being rules, he reluctantly let me wheel him to the elevator. 
On the way down I asked him if his wife was meeting him.
“I don’t know,” he said. “She’s still upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her hospital gown.”

A senior citizen said to his eighty-year old buddy: 
“So I hear you’re getting married?” 
“Yep!” 
“Do I know her?” 
“Nope!” 
“This woman, is she good looking?” 
“Not really.” 
“Is she a good cook?”
“Naw, she can’t cook too well.” 
“Does she have lots of money?” 
“Nope! Poor as a church mouse”
“Well, then, is she good in bed?”
“I don’t know.” 
“Why in the world do you want to marry her then?”
“Because she can still drive!”

A man was telling his neighbour, “I just bought a new hearing aid. It cost me four thousand dollars, but it’s state of the art. It’s perfect.”

“Really,” answered the neighbour. “What kind is it?”
“Twelve thirty.”

Morris, an 82 year-old man, went to the doctor to get a physical. 
A few days later, the doctor saw Morris walking down the street with a gorgeous young woman on his arm. 
A couple of days later, the doctor spoke to Morris and said, “You’re really doing great, aren’t you?” 
Morris replied, “Just doing what you said, Doc: ‘Get a hot mamma and be cheerful.’”
The doctor said, “I didn’t say that. I said, ‘You’ve got a heart murmur; be careful.’”

A little old man shuffled slowly into an ice cream parlour and pulled himself slowly, painfully, up onto a stool. After catching his breath, he ordered a banana split. 

The waitress asked kindly, “Crushed nuts?” 

“No,” he replied. “Arthritis.”

Enjoy your weekend and remember to smile while you still have teeth!
