At the root of every gray hair,
there is a dead brain cell. 
Someone had to remind me, 
So I'm reminding you, too. 
Don't laugh.... It is all true!
Perks of reaching 50 
Or being over 60 
And heading towards 
70 or beyond! 
Kidnappers are not very 
interested in you.
In a hostage situation,
you are likely to be released first. 
No one expects you to run -- 
People call at 9 PM (or 9 AM) and ask, 
'Did I wake you?'
People no longer view you as a 
There is nothing left 
to learn the hard way.
Things you buy now will
never wear out.
You can eat 
supper at 4 PM.
You can live without sex 
but not your glasses.
You get into heated arguments 
about pension plans.
You no longer think of speed limits 
as a challenge.
You quit trying to hold
your stomach in no matter who walks 
into the room. 
You sing along 
with elevator music.
Your eyes won't get 
much worse.
Your investment in health insurance 
is finally beginning to pay off. 
Your joints are more accurate meteorologists 
than the national weather service.
Your secrets are safe with your friends 
because they can't remember them either.
Your supply of brain cells is finally down to 
a manageable size. 
You can't remember 
who sent you this list. 
And you notice these are all in big print 
for your convenience. 
Forward this to everyone 
You can remember 
Right now! 
Never, NEVER, NEVER , 
Under any circumstances, 
Take a sleeping pill, and a laxative on

and of course we keep telling all those same old jokes specially at surfers reunions


Two blondes walk into a building --- you'd think at least one of them would have seen it...ha  ha  ha


Mr Wordley says...'Doc, I can't stop singing:  'The Green, Green Grass of Home.'

Doc says,  'That sounds like the Tom Jones Syndrome. '

'Is it common, doc?'

'Well, it's not unusual.' 


Dave Boyd takes his Rottweiller to the vet.  'My dog is cross-eyed, is there anything you can do for him?'

'Well,' says the vet, 'let's have a look at him.' and he picks up the dog and examines his eyes, then he checks his teeth.  Finally, he says, 'I'm going to have to put him down.'

'What? --- because he's cross-eyed?'

'No, because he's really heavy'


So I was getting into my car, and this bloke says to me 'Can you give me a lift?'  I said.... 'Sure, you look great, the world's your oyster, so go for it.' 


Apparently, 1 in 5 people in the world is Chinese.  There are 5 people in my family so one of them must be Chinese.  It's either my mum or my Dad --- or my older brother Colin --- or my younger brother Ho-Cha-Chu --- but I think it's Colin. 


You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today said Chris Frazerhurst.  They left a little note on the windscreen.  It said, 'Parking Fine.'  I thought that was really nice. 


Ian Butt walked into the doctor's,.... he said, 'I've hurt my arm in several places'

The doctor said, 'Well don't go there any more'


Ireland 's worst air disaster occurred early this morning when a small two-seater Cessna  plane crashed into a cemetery.  Irish search and rescue workers have recovered 2826 bodies so far, and expect that number to climb as digging continues!









and as we reach the twilight years together....
