A retired couple go to dinner at the home of some old friends. After dinner, the two men get talking. One says, "Last week we ate at a marvellous restaurant. I highly recommend it." The second man says, "Well, I'll take your word for it. What was it called?" The first man pauses, thinking intently, then says, "What's the name of that flower you give to someone to be romantic, the one that is usually red and has thorns?" "Oh, you mean a rose?" asks the second man. "Yes, that's it" says the first man. Then he calls into the kitchen, "Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last week?".

A determined lady of a certain age is telling a friend about her new aerobics class: "I felt as if I was completely out of shape, so I just went for it. I stretched, twisted, jumped up and down and wiggled... Of course, by the time I'd got my leotard on, the class had finished." i221.photobucket.com/albums/dd161/GWDAdmin1/Smilies/Default/grin.gif

One day, Harry, a sporty man in his sixties, arrives home from an afternoon of golf, feeling depressed. "I've decided I'm giving up golf. My eyesight has become so bad that once I've hit the ball, I can't see where it went. His wife consoles him, makes him a nice cup of tea and says, "Why don't you take our Arthur along next weekend and give it one more try?" "That's no good" sighs Harry. Your brother's ten years older than I am. He can't help." "He may be a bit older than you," says the wife, "but his eyesight has never been better." So the next weekend, Harry heads off to the golf course with his brother-in-law. He tees up, makes his shot, and looks down the fairway, squinting. He turns to his brother-in-law and asks, "Did you see the ball?" "Of course" replies Arthur. "I have perfect eyesight." "Right - where did it go?" asks Harry. "Oh, er, sorry... I don't remember."
You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time. Abraham Lincoln, (attributed) 16th president of US (1809 - 1865)
