Growing Old

An elderly gent was invited to an old friends' home for dinner one evening. He was impressed by the way his buddy preceded every request to his wife with endearing termssuch as: 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, 'Her name slipped my mind about 10 years ago and I'm scared to death to ask her what it is!
Thanks to my almost-sister Harriett for that laugh earlier in the week!

Oh, don't go away! I have one more.

My friend Lynda from Austin, TX emailed me earlier in the week, too. She wrote, "Check what I got for Christmas." Click here: My New clock I was surprised, needless to say, then laughed about 3 lbs. off. The tears were rolling!

Friday Funnies is a meme born out of the humor-filled heart of our dear friend Kim at Homesteaders Heart. She is so gracious to host this each week! I encourage you to visit her for even more laughs today and link up and post some of your own.

Loved your list about what you've never done ... no gum in church? Ever. Oh my. I'd be lost without it because I'm afraid I'll have bad church breath, and mints just go away too fast!
