Old man Joe limped into the doctor's office and said, "Doctor, my knee hurts so bad, I can hardly walk!"

The doctor slowly eyed him from head to toe, paused and then said, "Mr. Joe, just how old are you?"

Grandpa's Gift

Last Christmas, grandpa was feeling his age, and found that shopping for Christmas gifts had become too difficult. So he decided to send checks to everyone instead.

Merry Christmas

50 comments:
I want to wish everyone a blessed Christmas.  Today many are celebrating the birth of Jesus with family and friends.  Today many are alone and lonely.  Today many have lost loved ones this past year and are grieving.  If you know anyone that needs a kind word, a hug or maybe an invite to dinner, then please take the time to reach out to those people.  It just may mean the world to them.

Drinking & Driving

With the holidays upon us I would like to share a personal experience with you about drinking and driving after a "social session" with friends.

Hubby and I have been hosting Thanksgiving and Christmas for many years. This past Thanksgiving was all we could to to get it done. It's time for us to step down and let the younger folks host these events. Christmas will be our last family get together. If we are going to celebrate the holidays together then we need to find a different way to accomplish that. We knew this time would come and it has arrived.

When I Die...

29 comments:
An old man and woman were married for many years. Whenever there was a confrontation, yelling could be heard deep into the night. The old man would shout, “When I die, I will dig my way up and out of the grave and come back and haunt you for the rest of your life!”

Neighbors feared him. The old man liked the fact that he was feared.

Valentines - Redneck Style

16 comments:
Yo're as cute as a junebug a-buzzin' overhead.
You ain't mean like no far ant upon which I oft' tread.

Cut from the best pattern like a flannel shirt of plaid,
You sparked up my life like a Rattletrap shad.

When you hold me real tight like a padded gunrack,
My life is complete; Ain't nuttin' I lack.

This is the completed Story Game of "Aunt Ethel" that you all did an outstanding job in authoring.

It's the week before Thanksgiving and you are just finding out that family members that you don't care for are showing up at your house for Thanksgiving, uninvited. You know this day will be horrible with these people, so we must devise a plan to save Thanksgiving day.

And I'm so lucky to have a sweet thang like you.

Yore hair is like cornsilk, a-flapping in the breeze.

You move like the bass, which excite me in May.
You ain't got no scales, but I luv you anyway.
