Note:  This page has been added to provide our members with some soothing music or humor during our time of "safe distancing" due to the COVID-19.  We will periodically add jokes for all to enjoy.

Now some important philosophical questions on life ……. 
Why do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet coke? 
Why do banks leave vault doors open and then chain the pens to the counters?  
Why do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in our driveways and put our useless junk in the garage? 
EVER WONDER... Why the sun lightens our hair, but darkens our skin? 
Why can't women put on mascara with their mouth closed? 
Why don't you ever see the headline 'Psychic Wins Lottery'? 
Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavoring, and dish washing liquid made with real lemons? 
Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker? 
Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour? 
Why isn't there mouse-flavoured cat food? 
Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes? 
Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections? 
Why don't sheep shrink when it rains? 
Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together? 
If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the “terminal”?

I don't always go the extra mile, but when I do it's because I've missed my exit.

Had I known in March that it was the last time I would be in a restaurant I would have ordered the dessert.

Most people don't think I'm as old as I am until they hear me stand up.

I got myself a seniors' GPS.  Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination, it tells me why I wanted to go there.

They say every piece of chocolate eaten shortens your life by two minutes.  I've done the math’s.  Seems I died in 1537.

People who wonder whether the glass is half empty or half full are missing the point.  The glass is refillable.

MY MIND IS LIKE MY INTERNET BROWSER.  19 tabs open, 3 of them are frozen and I have no idea where the music is coming from.

Today I saw a dwarf climbing down a prison wall.  I thought to myself That's a little condescending

It's a five minute walk from my house to the pub.  It's a 35 minute walk from the pub to my house.  The difference is staggering

Don't let them take your temperature
on your forehead as you enter the supermarket because it erases your memory. I went for macaroni and cheese and came home with two cases of Beer

Most seniors never get enough exercise. In His wisdom, God decreed that seniors become forgetful so they would have to search for their glasses, keys and other things thus doing more walking. And God looked down and saw that it was good.
Then God saw there was another need. In His wisdom, He made seniors lose coordination so they would drop things requiring them to bend, reach & stretch And God looked down and saw that it was good.
Then God considered the function of bladders and decided seniors would have additional calls of nature requiring more trips to the bathroom, thus providing more exercise. God looked down and saw that it was good.
So - if you find as you age that you are getting up and down more, remember it's God's will. It is all in your best interest even though you mutter under your breath
Important Facts To Remember:
#9 Death is the number 1 killer in the world.
#8 Life is sexually transmitted.
#7 Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.
#6 Men have 2 motivations: hunger and hanky-panky, and they can't tell them apart. If you see a gleam in his eyes, make him a sandwich.
#5 Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks, months, maybe years - unless you give them your email address.
#4 Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in the hospital, dying of nothing.
#3 All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.
#2 In the 60's, people took LSD to make the world weird. Now the world is weird, and people take Prozac to make it normal.
#1 Life is like a jar of jalapeno peppers. What you do today may be a burning issue tomorrow.
Please share this wisdom with others while I go to the bathroom for the 2nd time this hour.

How Children Perceive Their Grandparents !!
1. She was in the bathroom, putting on her makeup under the watchful eyes of her young granddaughter, as she'd done many times before. After she applied her lipstick and started to leave, the little one said, "But Gramma, you forgot to kiss the toilet paper good-bye!" I'll probably never put lipstick on again without thinking about kissing the toilet paper good-bye.

2. My young grandson called the other day to wish me happy birthday. He asked me how old I was, and I told him, 80. My grandson was quiet for a moment, and then he asked, "Did you start at 1?" 

3. After putting her grandchildren to bed, a grandmother changed into old slacks and a droopy blouse and proceeded to wash her hair. As she heard the children getting more and more rambunctious, her patience grew thin. Finally, she threw a towel around her head and stormed into their room, putting them back to bed with stern warnings. As she left the room, she heard the three-year-old say with a trembling voice,
"Who was THAT?" 

4. A grandmother was telling her little granddaughter what her own childhood was like. "We used to skate outside on a pond. I had a swing made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard. We rode our pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods."
The little girl was wide-eyed, taking this all in. At last she said, "I sure wish I'd gotten to know you sooner!" 

5. My grandson was visiting one day when he asked, "Grandma, do you know how you and God are alike?" I mentally polished my halo and I said, "No, how are we alike?'' "You're both real old," he replied. 

6. A little girl was diligently pounding away on her grandfather's word processor. She told him she was writing a story. 
"What's it about?" he asked. 
"I don't know," she replied. "I can't read." 

7. I didn't know if my granddaughter had learned her colors yet, so I decided to test her. I would point out something and ask what color it was. She would tell me, and she was always correct. It was fun for me, so I continued. At last, she headed for the door, saying, "Grandma, I think you should try figuring out some of this stuff for yourself!" 

8. When my grandson Billy and I entered our vacation cabin, we kept the lights off until we were inside to keep from attracting pesky insects. Still, a few fireflies followed us in. Noticing them before I did, Billy whispered, "It's no use, Grandpa. Now the mosquitoes are coming after us with flashlights." 

9. When my grandson asked me how old I was, I teasingly replied, "I'm not sure." "Look in your underwear, Grandpa," he advised. "Mine says I'm 4 to 6."

10. A second grader came home from school and said to her grandmother, "Grandma, guess what? We learned how to make babies today." The grandmother, more than a little surprised, tried to keep her cool. "That's interesting." she said, warily. "How do you make babies?" 
"It's easy," replied the girl. "You just change 'y' to 'i' and add 'es'." 

11. "Give me a sentence about a public servant," instructed the teacher during a lesson. One small boy wrote: "The fireman came down the ladder pregnant." The teacher took the lad aside to correct him. "Don't you know what pregnant means?" she asked.
"Sure," said the young boy confidently. 'It means carrying a child." 

12. A grandfather was delivering his grandchildren to their home one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of the fire truck was a dalmatian dog. 
The children started discussing the dog's duties. 
"They use him to keep crowds back," offered one child.
"No," said another, "he's just for good luck."
A third child brought the argument to a close. "They use the dogs," she said firmly, "to find the fire hydrants." 

13. A 6-year-old was asked where his grandma lived "Oh," he said, "she lives at the airport, and when we want her, we just go get her. Then, when we're done having her visit, we take her back to the airport." 

14. Grandpa is the smartest man on earth! He teaches me good things, but I don't get to see him enough to get as smart as him! 

15. My Grandparents are funny. When they bend over, you hear gas leaks, and they blame their dog. 

Here is our reality today----(believe it or not!!)
1. The dumbest thing I ever bought was a 2020 planner. 
2. I was so bored I called Jake from State Farm just to talk to someone. He asked me what I was wearing. 
3. 2019:  Stay away from negative people.  2020:  Stay away from positive people. 
4. The world has turned upside down.  Old folks are sneaking out of the house, and their kids are yelling at them to stay indoors! 
5. This morning I saw a neighbor talking to her dog.  It was obvious she thought her dog understood her.  I came into my house and told my cat.  We laughed a lot. 
6. Every few days try your jeans on just to make sure they fit.  Pajamas will have you believe all is well in the kingdom. 
7. Does anyone know if we can take showers yet or should we just keep washing our hands? 
8. This virus has done what no woman has been able to do.  Cancel sports, shut down all bars, and keep men at home! 
9. I never thought the comment, “I wouldn’t touch him or her with a 6-foot pole” would become a national policy, but here we are! 
10. I need to practice physical-distancing from the refrigerator. 
11. I hope the weather is good tomorrow for my trip to the Backyard.  I’m getting tired of the Living Room. 
12. Never in a million years could I have imagined I would go up to a bank teller wearing a mask and asking for money.


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."

So, we're into our 6th month of this pandemic. These various quotes made me laugh, which I needed! 

1. So let me get this straight, there’s no cure for a virus that can be killed by sanitizer and hand soap?
2. Is it too early to put up the Christmas tree yet? I have run out of things to do.
3. When this virus thing is over with, I still want some of you to stay away from me.
4. If these last months have taught us anything, it’s that stupidity travels faster than any virus on the planet, particularly among politicians and bureaucrats.
5. Just wait a second – so what you're telling me is that my chance of surviving all this is directly linked to the common sense of others? You’re kidding, right?
6. People are scared of getting fined or arrested for congregating in crowds, as if catching a deadly disease and dying a horrible death wasn’t enough of a deterrent.
7. If you believe all this will end and we will get back to normal just because we reopen everything, raise your hand. Now slap yourself with it.
8. Another Saturday night in the house and I just realized the trash goes out more than me.
9. Whoever decided a liquor store is more essential than a hair salon is obviously a bald-headed alcoholic.
10. Remember when you were little and all your underwear had the days of the week on them. Those would be helpful right now.
11. The spread of Covid-19 is based on two factors: 1. How dense the population is and 2. How dense the population is.
12. Remember all those times when you wished the weekend would last forever? Well, wish granted. Happy now?
13. It may take a village to raise a child, but I swear it’s going to take a whole vineyard to home school one.
14. Did a big load of pajamas so I would have enough clean work clothes for this week.

In a crowded city at a busy bus stop, a woman who was waiting for a bus was wearing a tight leather skirt. As the bus stopped and it was her turn to get on, she became aware that her skirt was too tight to allow her leg to come up to the height of the first step of the bus.

Slightly embarrassed and with a quick smile to the bus driver, she reached behind her to unzip her skirt a little, thinking that this would give her enough slack to raise her leg.

Again, she tried to make the step only to discover she still couldn't. So, a little more embarrassed, she once again reached behind her to unzip her skirt a little more.

For the second time she attempted the step, and once again, much to her chagrin, she could not raise her leg. With a little smile to the driver, she again reached behind to unzip a little more and again was unable to make the step.

About this time, a large Texan who was standing behind her picked her up easily by the waist and placed her gently on the step of the bus.

She went ballistic and turned to the would-be Samaritan and screeched, "How dare you touch my body! I don't even know who you are!'

The Texan smiled and drawled, "Well, ma'am, normally I would agree with you, but after you unzipped my fly three times, I kinda figured we was friends."


A married couple were asleep when the phone rang at 2 in the morning 
The very blonde wife picked up the phone, listened a moment and said 'How should I know, that's 200 miles from here!' and hung up.
The husband said, 'Who was that?'
The wife answered, 'I don't know, some woman wanting to know if the coast is clear.'
Two blondes are walking down the street.
One notices a compact on the sidewalk and leans down to pick it up.
She opens it, looks in the mirror and says,
'Hmm, this person looks familiar.'

So, the first blonde hands her the compact.
The second blonde looks in the mirror and says, 'You dummy, it's me!'
A blonde suspects her boyfriend of cheating on her, so she goes out and buys a gun.
She goes to his apartment unexpectedly and when she opens the door she finds him in the arms of a redhead.
Well, the blonde is really angry. She opens her
purse to take out the gun and, as she does so, she is overcome with grief.
She takes the gun and puts it to her head.

 The blonde replies, 'Shut up, you're next!'
A blonde was bragging about her knowledge of state capitals.

Q: What did the blonde ask her doctor when
he told her she was pregnant?
A: 'Is it mine?'
Bambi, a blonde in her fourth year as a UCLA Freshman, sat in her US government class.

Returning home from work, a blonde was shocked to find her house ransacked and burglarized.  
She telephoned the police at once and reported the crime.  
The police dispatcher broadcast the call
on the radio and a K-9 unit, patrolling nearby, was the first to respond.
As the K-9 officer approached the house with his dog on a leash, the blonde ran out on the porch, shuddered at the sight of the cop and his dog, then sat down on the steps.
Putting her face in her hands, she moaned, 'I come home to find all my possessions stolen.
I call the police for help and what do they do?  Send me a blind policeman.
Two blondes were sipping their Starbucks when a truck went past loaded up with rolls of sod.

"Anniversary Surprise"


Two well seasoned ranchers were having coffee at their favorite diner in Wichita one day, when Joe mentioned that he had a wedding anniversary coming up. "We'll be married 50 years," he noted. 

"That's a big one," Sam observed. "got anything special planned?" 

Joe thought for a while before replying, "Well, I took Mary Lou to Kansas City for our 25th anniversary. Maybe I'll go get her and bring her home for our 50th."
