Wednesday, short joke only..

I've sure gotten old! I've had two bypass surgeries, a hip replacement, new knees, fought prostate cancer and diabetes. I'm half blind, can't hear anything quieter than a jet engine, take 40 different medications that make me dizzy, winded, and subject to black outs. Have bouts with dementia. Have poor circulation; hardly feel my hands and feet anymore. Can't remember if I'm 85 or 92. Have lost all my friends. But, thank God, I still have my driver's license.

Bob and his friends all live in a senior home. Friend asks Bob; "I hear you're going to marry Betty?" "Yep" says Bob. " But why?" his friends ask, "she isn't all that pretty, to be polite, and she doesn't have much money. And she doesn't cook. And it can't be about sex."
"Nope, none of those" says Bob,"She still drives!"
