Fun Friday with a little help from my friends....

 
 




Senior Wedding
Jacob, age 92, and Mary, age 89, living in Fort Mohave, AZ , are all excited
About their decision to get married. They go for a stroll to discuss
The wedding, and on the way they pass a drugstore. Jacob suggests they
Go in.

Jacob addresses the man behind the counter:

"Are you the owner?" The pharmacist answers, "Yes."

Jacob: "We're about to get married. Do you sell heart medication?"

Pharmacist: "Of course we do."

Jacob: "How about medicine for circulation?"

Pharmacist: "All kinds."

Jacob: "Medicine for rheumatism?"

Pharmacist: "Definitely."

Jacob: "How about suppositories and medicine for impotence?"

Pharmacist: "You bet!"

Jacob: "Medicine for memory problems, arthritis and Alzheimer's?"

Pharmacist: "Yes, a large variety. The works."

Jacob: "What about vitamins, sleeping pills, Geritol, antidotes for
Parkinson's disease?"

Pharmacist: "Absolutely."

Jacob: "Everything for heartburn and indigestion?"

Pharmacist: "We sure do."

Jacob: "You sell wheelchairs and walkers and canes?"

Pharmacist: "All speeds and sizes."

Jacob: "Adult diapers?"

Pharmacist: "Sure."

Jacob: "We'd like to use this store as our Bridal Registry."















         
MAN OF THE HOUSE
 
A husband had just finished reading a new book entitled: You can be  THE Man of Your House. 
 
Finding new courage that he never knew he had, he  stormed into the kitchen and announced to his wife, "From now on,   you need to  know that I am the man of this house and my word is the 'Law.'

You will prepare  me a gourmet meal tonight,   bring it to me, and when I am done eating my  meal, you will clear the dishes and serve me a scrumptious dessert.   

After   dinner, you are going to go upstairs with me and we will make love  the way I want! 

Afterwards, you are going to draw me a bath so I can relax. 

You  will put on soothing music, wash my back and towel me dry and bring me my  robe.  

You will massage my feet and hands to relieve any last bit of  tension so that I can sleep like a baby. 

Then tomorrow, guess who's going to  dress me and comb my hair?"

The wife replied, "The funeral director would be my first  guess, unless I have you cremated." 

 
 
Church Fart (thanks Debby at Just Breathe)


This says it all about getting older & the whole aging thing.
An elderly couple are attending church services.

About halfway through, she writes a note and hands it to her husband. It says, " I just let out a silent fart, what do
you think I should do?"

He Scribbles back, " Put a new battery in your hearing aid."




I loved Mr. Fred Rogers and this just made me feel so good thinking back.  Do you know he was a Presbyterian Minister?


Thank you Monica at Expressly Corgi.

Too funny! I thought nothing could top Senior Wedding, then I read Man of the House -- it's s toss-up!

Debbie said...

Wonderful laugh this morning! I laughed right out loud at the church one. Shame on me, but that was just funny.

And I did not know Mr. Rogers was a Presbyterian minister. Interesting! I did know that he was a good man who left a glorifying legacy.

Jill said...

Oh my gosh...I laughed at every one of these today. I adored Mr. Rogers. I miss him.

I hope you are finding reason to smile today, my friend.

love your elderly jokes. May you be on the mend as days come of the loss of your friend. I know you will never forget her but it is just trying to forget she has gone to not hear her voice or see her. That is the hardest I found.

I put my friend up in my blog to remind myself . I too miss her so much.

My friend was a beautiful lady as well and she was so healthwise and fit. When your time is willed by the Lord . Health does not wait it seems how much you try to look after the body. God called her home at a very young age.

BelovedBomber said...

I was sitting with my mom and mother-in-law, and we all shared a laugh at todays post. We all were reminded of my grandma and the jokes she would share. Thanks so much!

Granny Annie said...

Glad Ron and I found each other before that had to be our bridal registry!

The great thing about having a housekeeper is that you can blame her if the house is a mess. Now I need a cook to blame when the meals are late or bad:)

Rob-bear said...

Ah! wonderful as always.

The Bridal Registry bit I have read before, but it is still fun.

Yes, Fred Rogers was a Presbyterian Minister. Also, in the 1960s, he worked in Canadian television for the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation). It was during those three years that he developed what would become "Mr. Rogers Neighbourhood." Another Canadian gift to America.

Bev said...

I love this post...so funny all of it... You know I never knew of Fred Rogers....new saw him....on TV... hmmm and I'm even Canadian:)

GrammyK said...

Dropping by to catch up. It's been a while since I've been able to make the rounds on blogland. I'm thankful to have so much to keep me too busy to be on the computer too much! Ha Ha!!

I'm sorry to hear about your friend. I pray that the Lord will fill your heart with peace and warm happy memories so that the sadness is easier to bear.

Thanks for the Friday laughs. :-)
Blessings! Kris <3
