Fun Friday - Take a laugh break . . .






A group of 45 year old guys discuss where they should meet for dinner. Finally they agree to meet at the Kelley's Restaurant because the waitresses have low cut blouses and nice breasts. 10 years later at age 55, the group agrees to meet at Kelley's because the food is good and the wine selection is excellent. 10 years later at age 65, the group agrees to meet at Kelley's because they can eat there in peace and quiet and the restaurant is smoke free. 10 years later at age 75, the group agrees to meet at Kelley's because the restaurant is wheel chair accessible and they have an elevator. 10 years later at age 85, the group agrees to meet at Kelley's because they have never been there before.

THREE LITTLE BOYS were concerned because they couldn't get anyone to play with them
They decided it was because they had not been baptized and didn't go to Sunday school.
So they went to the nearest church. But, only the janitor was there.
One little boy said, "We need to be baptized because no one will come out and play with us.
Will you baptize us?"
Sure," said the janitor.
He took them into the bathroom and dunked their little heads in the
toilet bowl, one at a time.
Then he said, "You are now baptized!"
When they got outside, one of them asked, "'What religion do you think we are?"
The oldest one said, "We're not Kathlick, because they pour the water on you."
"We're not Babtis, because they dunk all of you in the water."
"We're not Methdiss, because they just sprinkle water on you.."
The littlest one said, "Didn't you smell that water?"
They all joined in asking, 'Yeah! What do you think that means?'
"I think it means we're Pisskopailians!"

The 'First Senior' Moment



Happy Birthday Sandra Day O'Connor - Wikipedia

She was born in El Paso, Texas, to Harry Alfred Day, a rancher, and Ada Mae Wilkey. She grew up on a cattle ranch near Duncan, Arizona. For most of her early schooling, O'Connor lived in El Paso with her maternal grandmother, and attended public schools and the Radford School for Girls, a private school. She attended Stanford University, where she received her B.A. in economics in 1950. She continued at the Stanford Law School for her LL.B

On December 20, 1952, she married John Jay O'Connor (John J. O'Connor III) and they have three sons: Scott, Brian, and Jay. Her husband suffered from Alzheimer's disease for nearly twenty years prior to his death and she has become involved in creating more awareness about the disease.

By November 2007, her family's situation had been made more difficult since, because of memory loss, her husband formed new personal attachments in the institution where he lived while not fully recalling his life-long family connections, yet her family was relieved to see her husband of 55 years so content. John O'Connor died on November 11, 2009, aged 79.

LOL with that comic with the senior moment; loved the joke with the men and the Kelly's restaurant too; too funny!

loved all the facts with the words; didn't realize that 56% of typing was done with the left hand, but as I am typing this, I am indeed aware that that is indeed the case since my left hand is flying across the keyboard and my right hand lies dormant a lot of the times. Very interesting;makes you wonder if a keyboard was invented by a leftie

(computer working okay so far today, I'm just taking it a day at a time)
