This is what we have to look forward to!! A very elderly gentleman, (mid nineties) very well dressed,hair well groomed, great looking suit, flower in his lapel smellingslightly of a good after shave, presenting a well looked-after image,walks into an upscale cocktail lounge. Seated at the bar is an elderlylooking lady, in her mid-eighties.The gentleman walks over, sits alongside of her, orders a drink, takes asip, turns to her and says, "So tell me, do I come here often?"<><><><><><><>An elderly gentleman had serious hearing problems for a number of years.He went to the doctor and the doctor was able to have him fitted for a setof hearing aids that allowed the gentleman to hear 100%.The elderly gentleman went back in a month to the doctor and the doctorsaid, "Your hearing is perfect. Your family must be really pleased that you canhear again."The gentleman replied, "Oh, I haven't told my family yet. I just sit around and listen to the conversations. I've changed my willthree times!"<><><><><><><>Two elderly gentlemen from a retirement center were sitting on a benchunder a tree when one turns to the other and says: "Slim, I'm 83 yearsold now and I'm just full of aches and pains. I know you're about my age.How do you feel?"Slim says, "I feel just like a newborn baby.""Really!? Like a newborn baby!?""Yep. No hair, no teeth, and I think I just wet my pants.<! >< ><><><><><>An elderly couple had dinner at another couple's house, and after eating,the wives left the table and went into the kitchen. The two gentlemen were talking, and one said, "Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great. Iwould recommend it very highly."The other man said, "What is the name of the restaurant?"The first man thought and thought and finally said, "What is the name of that flower you give to someone you love? You know... the one that's red and has thorns."" Do you mean a rose?""Yes, that's the one," replied the man. He then turned towards the kitchen and yelled, "Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last night?"><><><><><>Hospital regulations require a wheelchair for patients being discharged.However, while working as a student nurse, I found one elderly gentleman -- already dressed and sitting on the bed with a suitcase at his feet --who insisted he didn't need my help to leave the hospital.After a chat about rules being rules, he reluctantly let me wheel him tothe elevator. On the way down I asked him if his wife was meeting him."I don't know," he said. "She's still upstairs in the bathroom changingout of her hospital gown."<XXXXXXXXXX>A couple in their nineties are both having problems remembering things.During a checkup, the doctor tells them that they're physically okay, butthey might want to start writing things down to help them remember. Later that night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair."Want anything while I'm in the kitchen?" he asks."Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?""Sure.""Don't you think you should write it down so you can remember it?" sheasks. "No, I can remember it.""Well, I'd like some strawberries on top, too. Maybe you should write itdown, so's not to forget it?"He says, "I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream withstrawberries.""I'd also like whipped cream. I'm certain you'll forget that, write itdown?" she asks.Irritated, he says, "I don't need to write it down, I can remember it! Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream - I got it, for goodness sake!" Then he toddles into the kitchen.After about 20 minutes, the old man returns from the kitchen and hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs.She stares at the plate for a moment."Where's my toast?"<XXXXXX>A senior citizen said to his eighty-year old buddy: "So I hear you're getting married?""Yep!""Do I know her?""Nope!""This woman, is she good looking?""Not really.""Is she a good cook?""Naw, she can't cook too well.""Does she have lots of money?""Nope! Poor as a church mouse.""Well, then, is she good in bed?""I don't know.""Why in the world do you want to marry her then?""Because she can still drive!"<XXXXXX>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. It's perfect.""Really," answered the neighbor. "What kind is it?""Twelve thirty."<XXXXXX>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 agorgeous young woman on his arm. A couple of days later, the doctor spoke to Morris and said, "You're reallydoing great, aren't you?"Morris replied, "Just doing what you said, Doc: 'Get a hot mamma and becheerful.'"The doctor said, "I didn't say that. I said, 'You've got a heart murmur;be careful.'"<XXXXXX>A little old man shuffled slowly into an ice cream parlor and pulledhimself slowly, painfully, up onto a stool.
