A man was telling his neighbor, "I just bought a new hearing aid.
It cost me four thousand dollars, but it's state of the art."
"Really," answered the neighbor. "What kind is it?"
"Twelve thirty."
Morris, an 82-year-old man, went to the doctor to get a physical. A
few days later the doctor saw Morris walking down the street with a
gorgeous young lady on his arm. A couple of days later the doctor
spoke to the man and said, "You're really doing great, aren't you?"
Morris replied, "Just doing what you said, Doctor: 'Get a hot
mamma and be cheerful.' "
The doctor said, "I didn't say that. I said you got a heart murmur.
Be careful."
As a senior citizen was driving down the freeway, his car phone
rang. Answering, he heard his wife's voice urgently warning him:
"Herman, I just heard on the news that there's a car going the
wrong way on 280 Interstate. Please be careful!"
"It's not just one car," answered Herman. "It's hundreds of them!"
An elderly gent was invited to his old friends' home for dinner one
evening. He was impressed by the way his buddy preceded every request
to his wife with endearing terms-- Honey, My Love, Darling, Sweetheart,
Pumpkin, etc. The couple had been married almost 70 years and, clearly,
they were still very much in love.
While the wife was in the kitchen, the man leaned over and said to
his host, "I think it's wonderful that, after all these years, you still
call your wife those loving pet names."
The old man hung his head. "I have to tell you the truth," he said.
"I forgot her name about 10 years ago."
