Getting old in FLORIDA!!!!!

Thursday, February 28, 2013





Two elderly people living in Fort Myers, he was a widower and she a widow, had known each other for a number of years. One evening there was a community supper in the Clubhouse.
The two were at the same table, across from one another. As the meal went on, he took a few admiring glances at her and finally gathered the courage to ask her, 'Will you marry me?'
After about six seconds of 'careful consideration,' she answered 'Yes. Yes, I will!'
The meal ended and, with a few more pleasant exchanges, they went to their respective places. Next morning, he was troubled. 'Did she say 'yes' or did she say 'no'?'
He couldn't remember. Try as he might, he just could not recall. Not even a faint memory.
With trepidation, he went to the telephone and called her.
First, he explained that he didn't remember as well as he used to. Then he reviewed the lovely evening past. As he gained a little more courage, he inquired, 'When I asked if you would marry me, did you say 'Yes' or did you say 'No'?'
He was delighted to hear her say, 'Why, I said, 'Yes, yes I will' and I meant it with all my heart.' Then she continued, 'And I am so glad that you called, because I couldn't remember who had asked me.'

****************

A man was telling his neighbor in Port Charlotte, '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.'

*******************

A little old man shuffled slowly into an ice cream parlor in Bonita Springs , and pulled himself slowly, painfully, up onto a stool.
After catching his breath he ordered a banana split.
The waitress asked kindly, 'Crushed nuts?'
'No,' he replied, 'hemorrhoids!

Life is short!
Break the rules!
Forgive quickly!
Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably.
And never regret anything that made you smile.
The best things in life are free until the government finds out and taxes it.

    One of the best things about being "older" is that we can now laugh at ourselves!

Oh my Mary Anne, that was too funny, especially since mom and her cronies live in Ft. Myers! I could almost hear the conversations going on.
Of course with my hearing aids the words might have gotten jumbled.

    I just stumbled across this by accident. I AM growing old (well, not THAT old) in Florida, and I live in Port Charlotte. It was fun to read all our local place names there!

P.S. You have a lovely home there in PA!
