Happy Monday – Some More Senior Moments

An elderly gentleman had serious hearing problems for a number of years. He went to the doctor and the doctor was able to have him fitted for a set of hearing aids that allowed the gentleman to hear 100%.
The elderly gentleman went back in a month to the doctor and the doctor said, 'Your hearing is perfect.. Your family must be really pleased that you can hear again.'
The gentleman replied, 'Oh, I haven't told my family yet. I just sit around and listen to the conversations. I've changed my will three times!'

Another senior citizen was telling his neighbor, 'I just bought a new hearing aid. It cost me four thousand pounds, but it's state of the art.. It's perfect.'
'Really,' answered the neighbor . 'What kind is it?'
'Twelve thirty..'

Finally, two elderly gentlemen from a retirement centre were sitting on a bench under a tree when one turns to the other and says: 'Slim, I'm 83 years old now and I'm just full of aches and pains. I know you're about my age. How do you feel?'
Slim says, 'I feel just like a newborn baby.'
'Really!? Like a newborn baby!?'
'Yep. No hair, no teeth, and I think I just wet my pants.'



  1. I am so sorry to hear about Meek. I know the pain of loosing a cat. I have lost so many over the past 40 years, but they lived long lives.

    I can't imagine not having a cat in the house. We have five house cats and three of them are aging fast.

    I will pray for Meek. Perhaps he will come back to you in another cat body when his time comes. Be on the lookout.

  2. Hah!

    quite good!

    Thank you for the compliment, it made my day. :) Actually, more like my whole week!

    I think that if I removed the fangs and the blood from that photo, that it would look like one of the portraits of the old movie stars, like Audrey Hepburn or Grace Kelly. Not that I look like them (I wish!) but the style of the photo.

    Oh, and stay tuned, Louis and I went to my favorite abandoned house, and I was MUCH braver with him will be posted soon! I needed a good series to cover my non-internet days.

  3. Wish everyday was a Monday, all the best.

  4. These stories put a grin on my face. (I re-encountered an older gentleman last week walking his dog. I asked him, "Isn't your dog's name Daisey?" His reply, "She's about two years old." I nodded and smiled, "How nice.")

  5. And who said that getting old was no fun! But seriously getting old isn't any fun.

  6. Well, I don't usually laugh out loud but reading your gags I did just that. What a lovely to start to my blogging day.

  7. So sorry about Meek. You brought smiles and laughs from your post. I enjoyed it. Thank you. I look forward to more. I can certainly relate to the humor as I am currently going through the aging and loosing my hearing. It's good to laugh about it. thank you. I look forward to more of your posts.

  8. Your story reminded me of the scene in the book, "Captain Corelli's Mandolin," where the doctor removes the bean from the old man's ear and restores his hearing. After a few days of listening to his wife nag, the old man comes back to the doctor and asks the doctor to put the bean back!
