Chuckle Of The Day – Naked And Aging

Driving With Young Children

I was driving with my three young children one warm summer evening when a woman in the convertible ahead of us stood up and waved. She was stark naked! As I was reeling from the shock, I heard my 5-year-old shout from the back seat, ‘Mom, that lady isn’t wearing a seat belt!’

Afternoon Rounds

While working for an organization that delivers lunches to elderly shut-ins, I used to take my 4-year-old daughter on my afternoon rounds. She was unfailingly intrigued by the various appliances of old age, particularly the canes, walkers and wheelchairs. One day I found her staring at a pair of false teeth soaking in a glass. As I braced myself for the inevitable barrage of questions, she merely turned and whispered, ‘The tooth fairy will never believe this!’

Exercise For The Over 55 Crowd

Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side..

With a 5-lb potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can.

Try to reach a full minute, and then relax.

Each day you’ll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer.

After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato bags.

Next, try 50-lb potato bags and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute.

After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each bag.
LOL I like that exercise routine!

The potato exercise cracked me up. I am sitting here with the shoulder exercise with a 1 lb. can to lift,lol. Thinking of 50 or 100 lbs one just was blowing me a way. I sure fell for that one. The others I am familiar with,lol

It did the same thing to me! I kept thinking that there was no way I could ever lift that much weight.
