AGE­LESS OLDTIMER

My el­derly new neigh­bour was busy pot­ter­ing on his front lawn when I went over to in­tro­duce my­self. “I feel like I am 50 years old to­day,” he said. “That’s not good,” I replied. “No, it’s not too bad,” he said cheer­fully, “be­cause

I’m al­most 80.”

AMEN TO THAT!

On a re­cent visit to our fam­ily, which in­cludes three grand­chil­dren, our thir­teen-yearold grand­daugh­ter clearly re­cited the grace, con­clud­ing with a loud “Amen.” Our young nine-year-old thought for a few mo­ments, then asked, “Why do you say

Amen and not Awomen?”

I was giv­ing my lit­tle sis­ter a shower the other day and I told her to wash her hair. I came back five min­utes later to find her rins­ing her hair. I asked her if she had washed her hair and she replied, “Yes.” I then said, “Did you make sure you made heaps of bub­bles?” She replied, “Look, do you think I can see on top of my head?”

Taken from our lo­cal pa­per: “Wanted to buy – set of drums for 132 yr old be­gin­ner.” You’re never too old to learn?
