They call us “the Elderly
September 25th, 2023

So, let’s set the record straight. The following is adapted from a post sent to me by my cousin and originally post by Bob Stuart We were born during the epic decades of the 40s, 50s, and 60s. We saw it all, from the rise of rock ‘n’ roll to the space race capturing our imaginations. Our childhood was a glorious era of the 50s, 60s, and 70s. We played outside until the streetlights flickered on, rode bikes without helmets, and had the time of our lives. The 60s, 70s, and 80s were our school days. We navigated the era of bell-bottoms, frizzy hair, and questionable fashion choices.... Continue Reading

They say laughter is the best medicine
September 24th, 2023

 “I asked my computer for a good joke. It replied, ‘Why don’t scientists trust atoms? Because they make up everything!’ Ah, even computers have a sense of humor… or at least they’ve learned to mimic one!”  “You know you’re getting old when you bend down to tie your shoe and wonder what else you can do while you’re down there. Cleaning the floor seems like a valid option at that point!” “My favorite exercise is a cross between a lunge and a crunch. It’s called lunch. I think I’ve mastered it!” “I tried... Continue Reading

How Children perceive their grandparents.
September 23rd, 2023

I was sent this by one of my high school friends, I added to it and thought I would share1.           1.    I was in the bathroom, putting on my makeup, under the watchful eyes of my young granddaughter, as I’d done many times before. After I applied my lipstick and started to leave, the little one said, “But Grandma, you forgot to kiss the toilet paper good-bye!” I will probably never put lipstick on again without thinking about kissing the toilet paper good-bye. 2.          My young grandson called the other day to wish me Happy Birthday. He asked me how old... Continue Reading

Old is when…
September 22nd, 2023

Please note that these statements are intended to be humorous and based on stereotypes I have heard as I got older. We need to understand that the people saying these things are not meaning to offend, but are trying to be funny. I only take offence if it is a younger person (under 50) saying it instead of someone of my age.  “OLD” IS WHEN   Your sweetie says, “Let’s go upstairs and make love,” and you answer, “Honey, I can’t do both!” “OLD” IS WHEN   Your friends compliment you on your new alligator shoes -and you’re barefoot. “OLD” IS... Continue Reading

The Rules of rural Saskatchewan
September 21st, 2023

One of my cousins sent me this as I was born in Saskatchewan. My first thought was these are the reasons my parents left the province when I was three. I love my cousins and I do like Saskatchewan, but there is a limit to following some of the rules 1. Pull your droopy pants up. You look like an idiot. 2. Turn your cap straight, your head isn’t crooked. 3. Let’s get this straight; it’s called a ‘dirt road.’ I drive a pickup truck because I want to. No matter how slow you drive, you’re going to get dust on your Lexus. Drive it or get the hell out of my way. 4.... Continue Reading

Some Humnour on a Tuesday in August
August 1st, 2023

 Another year has passed And we’re all a little older. Last summer felt hotter And winter seems much colder There was a time not long ago When life was quite a blast. Now I fully understand About ‘Living in the Past We used to go to weddings, Football games and lunches. Now we go to funeral homes And after-funeral brunches. We used to go out dining, And couldn’t get our fill. Now we ask for doggie bags, Come home and take a pill. We used to often travel To places near and far. Now we get sore asses From riding in the car. We used to go to nightclubs And drink a little booze. Now... Continue Reading

July 31st, 2023

 My thanks to Walter and his sense of “old” humour for these ‘OLD’ IS WHEN… Your sweetie says ‘Let’s go upstairs and make love And you answer: ‘Pick one, I can’t do both!’ ‘OLD’ IS WHEN… Your friends compliment you On your new alligator shoes And you’re barefoot! ‘OLD’ IS WHEN… A sexy babe or hunk catches your fancy … And your pacemaker opens the garage door! ‘OLD’ IS WHEN… Going braless pulls all the wrinkles out of your face. ‘OLD’ IS WHEN… You... Continue Reading

Oh English how amusing
July 30th, 2023

 Mt thanks to the laughing Librarian for these one-liners  An Oxford comma walks into a bar where it spends the evening watching the television, getting drunk, and smoking cigars. • A dangling participle walks into a bar. Enjoying a cocktail and chatting with the bartender, the evening passes pleasantly. • A bar was walked into by the passive voice. • An oxymoron walked into a bar, and the silence was deafening. • Two quotation marks walk into a “bar.” • A malapropism walks into a bar, looking for all intents and purposes like a wolf in cheap clothing, muttering epitaphs and casting... Continue Reading

Lines to make you smile
July 23rd, 2023

 1.  My husband and I divorced over religious differences. He thought he was God and I didn’t. 2.  I don’t suffer from insanity; I enjoy every minute of it.  3.  Some people are alive only because it’s illegal to kill them.  4.  I used to have a handle on life, but it broke. 5.  Don’t take life too seriously; No one gets out alive. 6.  You’re just jealous because the voices only talk to me 7.  Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder. 8.  Earth is the insane asylum for the universe.  9.   I’m not a complete idiot — Some parts are just missing. 10. ... Continue Reading
