2 After being married 25 years, a man looked at his wife one day and said, "You know, 25 years ago we lived in a cheap apartment, drove a cheap car, had only a sofa bed and watched a 14" black and white television. BUT, every night I got to sleep with a hot 25 year old blonde.""Now," he continued, "We have a nice house, a new car, a big flat-screen TV, but I have to sleep with a 50 year old woman. It doesn't seem fair."His wife was a reasonable woman. She replied, "Well, why don't you go out and get yourself a hot 25 year old blonde? Then I'll make sure you will once again live in a cheap apartment, drive a cheap car, have only a sofa bed and watch a 14" black and white television."The man rethought his priorities.
3 Recently I went to the doctor for my annual physical. The nurse asked me how much I weighed. I told her 135 pounds. Then she weighed me and the scale said 160. She asked me how tall I was. I said, "5 feet, 5 inches." She measured me and I was only 5 feet, 3 inches. So she took my blood pressure and told me it was high. "Of course it's high," I said. "When I came in here I was tall and slender. Now I'm short and fat!"

5 I was sitting in the waiting room of my new dentist. It was my first appointment. I noticed his diploma on the wall, which had his full name. Suddenly, I recalled a tall, dark haired, handsome boy with the same name had been in my high school class nearly 50 years ago. Could this be the same boy I had a secret crush on, way back then?When I saw him, however, I quickly discarded that thought. This gray haired, balding man with the deeply wrinkled face was way too old to have been my classmate. Hmmm! Or could he?After he examined my teeth, I asked him if he had attended Northampton High School. "Yes, I did!" he said. "I'm a Konkrete Kid." He gleamed with pride."What year did you graduate?" I asked."In 1959," he said. "Why do you ask?""I was in your class!" I exclaimed. He looked at me closely. Then, that ugly, wrinkled, old, fat, bald, gray, decrepit SOB asked, "What did you teach?"

7 Having lost most of his hearing a number of years ago, this elderly man goes to the doctor to be fitted with hearing aids which promise to allow him to hear 100%. A month later, he returns to the doctor for a check up on his progress.

I've changed my will three times!"
8 Two old guys were sitting under a tree, watching the sun go down. One says, "You know, I'm 84 years old and my body is full of aches and pains. You're about my age. How do you feel?"The other guy says, "Oh, I feel like a newborn baby.""Really," says the first guy."Yep," says the second one. "No teeth, no hair and I think I just wet my pants."
9 An elderly couple went to dinner at the home of some friends, also elderly. After dinner, the wives went into the kitchen and the two men were talking. One said, "We went out to dinner last night at a really good restaurant. I'd highly recommend it."
The second man said, "What's the name of it?The first man thought and thought, then said, "What's the name of that flower you give to someone you love, the one that is usually red that has thorns?"""Oh, you mean a rose?" said the second man."Yes, that's it," said the first man. Then he called to the kitchen, "Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last night?"
10 According to hospital regulations, patients are required to be escorted out in a wheelchair when being discharged. A student nurse was having some trouble with an elderly gentleman who insisted that he did not need a wheelchair. After some discussion about rules being rules, he reluctantly agreed. As she was wheeling him out, the student nurse asked the man if his wife was going to pick him up."I don't know," he replied. "She's still upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her hospital gown."
