Painted skirting boards & window frame in bathroom (such great training for later life)

Made lasagna
Sam phoned at 11.20

He was a bit tipsy as he had been out drinking with Dave



Gawd I logged in at 8 o'clock with the intention of blogging 70s style. My mum then phoned then 'J' phoned as I put the receiver down (she has forgotten her log in that is why she has not posted in a while) .. then my cousin who is way, way older that me has added me to his facebook (I am sooo amazed he has facebook! so was distracted over there then as my mate in Madrid spotted me on line and wanted to chat) and now it is 11 o'clock plus........... OMW!!

So no 70s info tonight but a few jokes which made me laugh and to ease you and I into Monday (I have been on the 'Pat 'n' Mick (sick) for a week!!)

Just before the funeral services, the undertaker came up to the very elderly widow and asked, 'How old was your husband?' '98,' she replied. 'Two years older than me.' 'So you're 96,' the undertaker commented. She responded, 'Hardly worth going home, is it?'

Reporters interviewing a 104-year-old woman:
'And what do you think is the best thing about being 104?' the reporter asked.
She simply replied, 'No peer pressure.'


Three old guys are out walking.

First one says, 'Windy, isn't it?'

Second one says, 'No, it's Thursday!'

Third one says, 'So am I. Let's go get a beer.'


I've sure gotten old!
I've had two bypass surgeries, a hip replacement, new knees, fought prostate cancer and diabetes.
I'm half blind, can't hear anything quieter than a jet engine, take 40 different medications that make me dizzy, winded, and subject to blackouts.
Have bouts with dementia.
Have poor circulation; hardly feel my hands and feet anymore.
Can't remember if I'm 85 or 92.

Have lost all my friends.

But, thank God, I still have my driver's license.


I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape, so I got my doctor's permission to join a fitness club and start exercising.

Decided to take an aerobics class for seniors.
I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour.

But, by the time I got my leotard on, the class was over.

My memory's not as sharp as it used to be. Also, my memory's not as sharp as it used to be.


Two elderly gentlemen from a retirement center were sitting on a bench under a tree when one turned to the other and said:
'Slim, I'm 83 years old now and I'm just full of aches and pains. I know you're about my age. How do you feel?'
Slim said, 'I feel just like a newborn baby.'

'Really!? Like a newborn baby?'
'Yep. No hair, no teeth, and I think I just wet my pants.'

It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker.


An elderly gentleman had serious hearing problems for a number of years.
He went to the doctor and the doctor was able to have him fitted for a set of hearing aids that allowed him to hear 100%.
He went back in a month and the doctor said, 'Your hearing is perfect. Your family must be really pleased that you can hear again.'

The gentleman replied, 'Oh, I haven't told my family yet. I just sit around and listen to the conversations. I've changed my will three times!'


yes I guess I am feeling a bit old just now with all my aches and pains ... but I know it will pass.... lol :-)

It has been a glorious day here today, the sun has shone really strong and I have sorted out the garden for the winter with the help of my Teen and her boyfriend (yes it has cost me £10 but they did work so hard). Whilst in my shed (yes DP my 10 x 8 in sea green) I spotted a part of a drum kit I bought my teen when she was a littley.... at a car booty bought for a pound .. how 70s is this ??

An elderly couple are sitting in church.

During the viacr's sermon she leans over and whispers to him "Darling, I just did a silent fart, what should I do?"

He replies "First thing you should do is get some new batteries for that hearing aid of yours"
