Senior Moments


"Stop yelling, 'DAMAGE REPORT!', every time the grand kids leave!"
***
"Of course it's not your size, Maude. They don't make your size!"
***
"You're down to your last marbles, Earl. Don't push it!"
***
"It's fat-free, no cholesterol, and no calories. Don't ask what it is!"
***
"My daddy says that when he was a boy, you were a young man.
Is that true, Grandpa?"
***
"Same old same old, Earl. But, I think you will be intrigued
by its piquant bouquet and slightly fruity taste!"
***
"I've done the big five oh! I've done the big six oh! Now, I'm working
on the big OH NO!
***
"Dinner will be ready shortly. There's just enough time to mow
the lawn; trim the hedges; carry out the trash; and fix that leaky faucet."
***
"No, Maude, I am not going to stop and ask for directions...what
difference does it make WHERE we're going!"

Although I seldom comment I rarely miss reading your posts. I usually get a chuckle. Love your sense of humor.

'You're down to your last marbles, Earl.' Good one! Funny post.

: ) I enjoyed those. I think my favorite is dinner will be ready soon. I am sometimes guilty of that. Not when I'm cooking but when I warn things up I guess I want to stay busy and leftovers can come out a little crispy. I thought 5 minutes was plenty of time to get things done.

Wonderful! More whimsy with the usual aplomb.

By the way: I finally posted some new aphorisms if you're interested.

Take care.

As always, thank you, Count.

That was wonderful.
