Joke of the Day 12/31/17

Another year has passed
And we’re all a little older.

Last summer felt hotter
And winter seems much colder.

I rack my brain for happy thoughts,
To put down on my pad,

But lots of things, That come to mind
Just make me kind of sad.

There was a time not long ago
When life was quite a blast.

Now I fully understand
About ‘Living in the Past’.

We used to go to friends homes,
Football games and lunches.

Now we go to therapy, to hospitals,
And after-funeral brunches.

We used to have hangovers,
From parties that were gay.

Now we suffer body aches
And sleep the night away.

We used to go out dining,
And couldn’t get our fill.

Now we ask for doggie bags,
Come home and take a pill.

We used to travel often
To places near and far.

Now we get backaches
Just from riding in the car.

We used to go out shopping
For new clothing at the Mall

But, now we never bother…
All the sizes are too small.

That, my friend is how life is,
And now my tale is told.

So, enjoy each day and live it up…
Before you’re too darn old!!



Happy New Year!

Speaking of poets, some of us could use a little help straightening out our Longfellow.

Nothing like ending the year with a dud.

Shoot straight

People are sick of politicians, and me, I hate cats in the house.
