BEST EVER SENIOR CITIZEN JOKE.....
A little silver-haired lady calls her neighbor and says, "Please come over here and help me. I have a killer jigsaw puzzle, and I can't figure out how to get started."
Her neighbor asks, "What is it supposed to be when it's finished?"
The little silver haired lady says, "According to the picture on the box, it's a rooster."
Her neighbor decides to go over and help with the puzzle.
She lets him in and shows him where she has the puzzle spread all over the table.
He studies the pieces for a moment, then looks at the box, then turns to her and says, "First of all, no matter what we do, we're not going to be able to assemble these pieces into anything resembling a rooster." He takes her hand and says, "Secondly, I want you to relax. Let's have a nice cup of tea" and then he said with a deep sigh ............
"Let's put all the Corn Flakes back in the box."
HOW TO START A FIGHT!
My wife and I were sitting at a table at her high school reunion and she kept staring at a drunken man swigging his drink as he sat alone at a nearby table.
I asked her, “Do you know him?”
“Yes”, she sighed,
“He’s my old boyfriend. I understand he took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear he hasn’t been sober since.”
“My God!” I said, “Who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?”
And that’s how the fight started…
My grandmother made the absolutely best roast chicken in the world!
My mother made the best smothered pork chops with whipped potatoes and fried corn.
My auntie made the best Thanksgiving Day turkey with cornbread and sausage dressing and sweet potato pone.
Okay, okay! I'll stop here cuz I don't know about you, but just drooled on myself. Smile.

How to Play Golf - "What is your handicap these days?" one golfer asked another. "I'm a scratch golfer I write down all my good scores and scratch out all my bad ones."
What did you say Huh? - Three retirees, each with a hearing! loss, were playing golf one fine July day. One remarked to the other, "Windy, isn't it?" "No," the second man replied, "it's Thursday." And the third man chimed in, "I'm thirsty too, Let's have a beer."
Too Many Figurines
A young girl watched her grandmother move several duck figurines from the bottom shelf to the middle shelf of a cabinet. The grandmother picked up one of the ducks and then set it down on the middle shelf. She picked up another duck figurine from the bottom shelf and set it beside the first duck. She continued moving the ducks from one shelf to the next.
Finally, she stood back and looked at the cabinet.
"Hmm..." She moved back to the cabinet and began moving the ducks onto the top shelf.
"Grandma," the little girl finally spoke, "what are you doing?"
"I'm just trying to get my ducks in a row," the grandmother answered. -Sally Painter
