An elderly couple was celebrating their sixtieth anniversary. The couple had married as childhood sweethearts and had moved back to their old neighborhood after they retired. Holding hands, they walked back to their old school. It was not locked, so they entered, and found the old desk they'd shared, where Jerry had carved I love you, Sally.

On their way back home, a bag of money fell out of an armored car, practically landing at their feet. Sally quickly picked it up and, not sure what to do with it, they took it home. There, she counted the money - fifty thousand dollars!

Jerry said, We've got to give it back.

Sally said, Finders keepers. She put the money back in the bag and hid it in their attic.

The next day, two police officers were canvassing the neighborhood looking for the money, and knocked on their door. Pardon me, did either of you find a bag that fell out of an armored car yesterday?

Sally said, No.

Jerry said, Shes lying. She hid it up in the attic.

Sally said, Don't believe him, hes getting senile

The agents turned to Jerry and began to question him.

One said: Tell us the story from the beginning.

Jerry said, Well, when Sally and I were walking home from school yesterday ..

The first police officer turned to his partner and said, Were outta here!

Just goes to show there are a lot of stereotypes about us older folk. We are supposed to be easy marks for con artists, we are supposed to have difficulty with technology and we are supposed to be forgetful.


Now what was I saying? Oh yeah, I was trying to fix my cassette player when I got a call from a company that offered me a wonderful deal on new siding....

I still use VCR regularly.
I go to a big church, big enough to support a senors group, it's called Vintage, were up to 100 now. They have "Senor Moments" at the beginning where you can tell of something funny that happened to you.

When I was still working we used a lot of retired folks to be camp hosts. A common theme among the hosts was the ability to talk extemporaneously for hours on end! These were all good folks who had stories to tell, but for a working person this could be torture. OTOH-As a retired person I've forgotten what all the fuss was about!

It's that thing with the blinking 12:00 on the front, into which your grandkids put peanut butter sandwiches.
