Just before the  funeral services, the undertaker came up to the very
elderly widow  and asked,
‘How old was your husband?’ ’98,’ she  replied.
‘Two years older than  me’
‘So you’re 96,’ the  undertaker commented.
She responded, ‘Hardly worth  going home, is it?
Reporters  interviewing a 104-year-old woman:
‘And what  do you think is the best thing
about being  104?’ the reporter asked.
She simply  replied, ‘No peer pressure.’
  The nice thing about being  senile is
you can hide your own  Easter eggs.
  I’ve sure gotten old!
I’ve had two bypass surgeries, a hip replacement,
new knees, fought  prostate cancer and diabetes.
I’m half  blind, can’t hear anything quieter  than a jet engine,
take 40 different  medications that make me dizzy, winded, and  subject to
blackouts.  Have bouts with  dementia. Have poor  circulation;
hardly feel my hands and  feet anymore.  Can’t remember if I’m 85 or 92.
Have lost all my friends.  But, thank God,
I still have my driver’s  license.
I feel like my  body has gotten totally out of shape,
so I got my  doctor’s permission to
join a fitness club and  start exercising.
I decided to take an  aerobics class for seniors.
I bent,  twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour.
But, by the time I got my leotards on, the  class was over.
An elderly  woman decided to prepare her will and
told her preacher she  had two final requests.
First, she  wanted to be cremated, and second,
she wanted  her ashes scattered over Wal-Mart.
‘Wal-Mart?’ the preacher  exclaimed.
‘Why Wal-Mart?’   ‘Then I’ll be sure my  daughters visit me twice a week’
  My memory’s not as sharp as  it used to be.
Also, my memory’s not as  sharp as it used to be.
  Know how to prevent  sagging?
Just eat till the  wrinkles fill out.
  It’s scary when you start  making the same noises
as your coffee  maker.
These days  about half the stuff in my shopping cart  says,
‘For fast  relief.’
Grant me the senility to  forget the people I never liked  anyway, the good
fortune to run into  the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the
Now, I think you’re  supposed to share this with 5 or 6, maybe 10 others. Oh
heck, give it to a  bunch of your friends if you can remember who they are!
Always  Remember This:
You don’t stop laughing because you  grow old,
You grow old  because you stop laughing

Every time I am asked to pray, I think of the old deacon who
always prayed, ‘Lord, prop us up on our leanin’ side.’ After hearing him pray that prayer many times, someone asked him why he prayed that prayer so fervently.

He answered, ‘Well sir, you see, it’s like this… I got an old barn out back. It’s been there a long time; it’s withstood a lot of weather; it’s gone through a lot of storms, and it’s stood for many years.
It’s still standing. But one day I noticed it was leaning to
one side a bit.

So I went and got some pine poles and propped it up on its leaning side so it wouldn’t fall.

Then I got to thinking about that and how much I was like that old barn. I’ve been around a long time.

I’ve withstood a lot of life’s storms. I’ve withstood a lot?of bad weather in life, I’ve withstood a lot of hard times, and I’m still standing too. But I find myself leaning to one side from time to time, so I like to ask the Lord to prop us up on our leaning side, ’cause I figure a lot of us get to leaning at times.

Sometimes we get to leaning toward anger, leaning toward bitterness, leaning toward hatred, leaning toward cussing, leaning toward a lot of things that we shouldn’t . So we need to pray, ‘Lord, prop us up on our leaning side, so we will stand straight and tall again, to glorify the Lord.”

If you stare at this barn for a second you will see who will help us stand straight and tall again.

These are from a book called Disorder in the American Courts, and are things 
people actually said in court, word for word , taken down and now published

 ATTORNEY: Doctor, how many of your autopsies have you performed on dead 
 WITNESS: All my autopsies are performed on dead people. Would you like 
to rephrase that?
 ATTORNEY: ALL your responses MUST be oral, OK? What school did you go to?
 ATTORNEY: Do you recall the time that you examined the body?
 WITNESS: The autopsy started around 8:30 P.M.
 ATTORNEY: And Mr. Denton was dead at the time?
 WITNESS: No, he was sitting on the table wondering why I was doing an 
autopsy on him!
 ATTORNEY: Are you qualified to give a urine sample?
 WITNESS: Huh….are you qualified to ask that question?
 And the best for last:
 ATTORNEY: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a 
 ATTORNEY: Did you check for blood pressure?
 ATTORNEY: Did you check for breathing?
 ATTORNEY: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began 
the autopsy?
 ATTORNEY: How can you be so sure, Doctor?
 WITNESS: Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.
 ATTORNEY: I see, but could the patient have still been alive, 
 WITNESS: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and 
practicing law
