Growing old…

Large font on purpose..
old people can read easier with bigger fonts……

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!’

…………………..

Two elderly gentlemen from a retirement center 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.’
…………………………………
An elderly couple had dinner at another couple’s house,
and after eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen.

The two gentlemen were talking, and one said,
‘Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was
really great. I would recommend it very highly.’

The other man said,
‘What is the name of the restaurant?’

The first man thought and thought and finally said,
‘What is the name of that flower you give to someone you love?
You know… The one that’s red and has thorns.’

‘Do you mean a rose?’

‘Yes, that’s the one,’ replied the man.
He then turned towards the kitchen and yelled,
‘Rose, what’s the name of that restaurant we went to last night?’

……………………………….

Couple in their nineties are both having problems remembering things.

During a checkup, the doctor tells them that they’re physically okay,
but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember.

Later that night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair.

‘Want anything while I’m in the kitchen?’ he asks.

‘Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?’

‘Sure.’

‘Don’t you think you should
write it down so you can remember it?’ she asks.

‘No, I can remember it.’

‘Well, I’d like some strawberries on top, too.
Maybe you should write it down, so’s not to forget it?’

He says, ‘I can remember that.
You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries. ‘

‘I’d also like whipped cream,
I’m certain you’ll forget that, write it down?’ she asks.

Irritated, he says, ‘I don’t need to write it down, I can remember it!
Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream – I got it, for goodness sake!’

Then he toddles into the kitchen.
After about 20 minutes,
The old man returns from the kitchen and
hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs.

She stares at the plate for a moment.
Then says
‘Where’s my toast ?’
