April Top Droppers

This is a great big thank you for last weeks advertisers. For those that I honor each week/month I'm well aware of the dedication you show. In order to stay in the top of the heap you're dropping EC every single day.  Many of you have more than one blog and that's 300 drops per day per blog.

Dementia Test

It's that time of year to take our annual senior citizen test. Exercise of the brain is as important as exercise of the muscles. As we grow older, it's important to keep mentally alert. If you don't use it, you lose it! Below is a very private way to gauge your loss or non-loss of intelligence. Take the test presented here to determine if you're losing it or not. OK, relax, clear your mind and begin.

The Blogger Award

Clara of Coming Back to Life! gave me The Blogger Award. Thank you so very much Clara. This is a new one and everyone knows how I love to collect awards.

I'm passing this award on to the following folks (in no particular order). Play along if you wish. Nothing is mandatory here.

Banking Explained

Young Chuck moved to Texas and bought a donkey from a farmer for $100.00. The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day.

The next day he drove up and said, 'Sorry son, but I have some bad news. The donkey died.'

Chuck replied, 'Well, then, give me my money back.'

Anger Management

When you occasionally have a really bad day, and you just need to take it out on someone, don’t take it out on someone you know, take it out on someone you don’t know. I was sitting at my desk when I remembered a phone call I’d forgotten to make. I dialed what I thought was Robyn’s number.

A man answered, saying, “Hello.”

Babes Part II

Kids are asked questions about marriage...and, OH! how they answered!!

What would you do on a first date that was turning sour?

"I'd run home and play dead. The next day I would call all the newspapers and make sure they wrote about me in all the dead columns." Craig, age 9

Babes Part I

Kids are asked questions about marriage...and, OH! how they answered!!

How do you decide who to marry?

"You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming." Alan, age 10

Red or Blue?

I was driving from Iowa City to Cedar Rapids the other day when a tire blew out. Checking my spare, I found that it too was flat. My only option was to flag down a passing motorist and get a ride to the next town. The first vehicle to stop was an old man in a van. He yelled out the window, "Need a lift?"

"Yes, I sure do," I replied.

Divorce vs. Murder

A nice, calm and respectable lady went into the pharmacy, walked up to the pharmacist, looked straight into his eyes, and said, "I would like to buy some cyanide."

The pharmacist asked, "Why in the world do you need cyanide?"

A 'Rock Hudson' - a putt that looked straight, but wasn't.
A 'Saddam Hussein' - from one bunker into another.
A 'Yasser Arafat' - butt ugly and in the sand.
A 'John Kennedy Jr.' - didn't quite make it over the water.
A 'Rodney King' - over-clubbed.

Comment Game

It's time to play the comment game again. We're making our first cruise of the season and participating in Safety Day. Boat inspections is what it amounts to. Well, there is lots of food and a small amount of alcohol too. Now play nice okay, and have a terrific weekend.

Here's how it goes: I'll start the game off at the bottom of this post by choosing two words or phrases, like coffee or tea, and which ever one you prefer you choose. You can also explain why. When you have done that you do two new words or phrases for the next commenter to choose from. Feel free to come back as often as you like. Just have fun. If someone derails the game will one of you put it back on track? Thanks.

Nursing Home Sex...

Harold is 95 and lives in a Senior Citizen Home. Every night after dinner, Harold goes to a secluded garden behind the Center to sit and ponder his accomplishments and long life.

One evening, Mildred, age 87, wanders into the garden. They begin to chat and before they know it, several hours have passed. After a short lull in their conversation, Harold turns to Mildred and asks, 'Do you know what I miss most of all?'

Free Vacation

A new travel agency in town was running a competition to draw in more customers. The prize for the one hundredth customer to walk in the store was a round trip for two to Hawaii.

The travel agent, knowing they had been sitting on 99 visitors for a couple of days, noticed an old man and an old woman peering wistfully through the travel agency window at a poster of Hawaii on the wall.

Saturdays Thought

Politics is the art of preventing people from taking part in affairs which properly concern them. Paul Valery

The first panacea for a mismanaged nation is inflation of the currency; the second is war. Both bring a temporary prosperity; both bring a permanent ruin. But both are the refuge of political and economic opportunists. Ernest Hemingway

We are getting ready for a long week at the island on a work party. The boys have a dock to build and the gals have other things to do. Mowing, weeding, cleaning the pavilion, and fixing lunch for the guys each day, to name a few.  You will be seeing lots of posts like this one until next weekend. I'm fine, just very busy getting ready for 10 days on a dark island.
