Grandma's Visit

"Oh, I sure am glad to see you," the little boy said to his grandmother (on his mother's side). "Now Daddy will do the trick he's been promising us."
The grandmother was curious. "What trick is that?" she asked.
"He told Mommy that he'd climb the walls if you came to visit," answered the boy.
Oh, the pity of old age.

When I went to lunch today, I noticed an old man sitting on a park bench sobbing his eyes out. I stopped and asked him what was wrong. He said, "I have a 22 year old wife at home. She makes love to me every morning and then gets up and makes me pancakes, sausage, fresh fruit and freshly ground coffee."
I said, "Well, then why are you crying?" He said, "She makes me homemade soup for lunch and my favorite brownies and then makes love to me for half the afternoon."
I said, "Well, why are you crying?" He said, "For dinner she makes me a gourmet meal with wine and my favorite dessert and then makes love to me until 2:00 a.m."
I said, "Well, why in the world would you be crying?"
He said, "I can't remember where I live!" ....
Happiness keeps You Sweet,
Trials keep You Strong,
Sorrows keep You Human,
Failures keep You Humble,
Success keeps You Glowing,

Your jokes always crack me up!! The one about mothers,(big laugh) I always say #1 but alter it a little, it comes out more like"if your going to kill each other, clean up the blood" LOL !! #13 is another one I've said before. I also tell them " I made you, I can break you!" thats me trying to threaten them and they usually just laugh.( big roll of the eyes here).I think we've all said a lot of those to our children. I love sharing your jokes at work, we all just have a hoot !!! Take care and have a blessed weekend!

Hi Jeanette -- Your mom taught you a whole lot more than mine did me. :-)
Just catching up here, I've semi-retired from blogging for a while.

Now, where do I live?
Mrs. Jim found me and just now brought me some tea and some 'Tastefully Canadian' maple cookies. So I've found it again!

MY mother said most of those things to us too! I am happy to say that I have said few of them to my own sons. But I know I've said things that they sometimes talk and laugh about.

Had a giggle at your jokes, thank you.
