I honestly think it’s the thing
I like most, to laugh.
It cures a multitude of ills.

An old pastor lay dying. He sent a message for an Internal Revenue Service agent and his lawyer to come to the hospital.
When they arrived, they were ushered up to his room. As they entered the room, the pastor held out his hands and motioned for them to sit on each side of the bed. The pastor grasped their hands, sighed contentedly, smiled and stared at the ceiling. For a time, no one said anything.
Both the IRS agent and lawyer were touched and flattered that the old man would ask them to be with him during his final moments. They were also puzzled because the pastor had never given any indication that he particularly liked either one of them.
Finally, the Lawyer asked, Pastor, why did you ask the two of us to come here? The old pastor mustered all his strength, and then said weakly, Jesus died between two thieves, and that’s how I’d like to go.
Yesterday my daughter asked why I didn’t do something useful with my time. She suggested I go down to the senior center and hang out with the “old guys”.
So I did this, and when I got home last night I told her that I had joined a parachute club.
She said, “Are you nuts?! You’re almost 70 years old and you’re going to start jumping out of airplanes?”
I proudly showed her that I even received a membership card.
She said to me, “You idiot, where are your glasses! This is a membership to a Prostitute Club, not a Parachute Club!”
I’m in trouble again and don’t know what to do…I signed up for five jumps a week !
Life as a senior citizen is not getting any easier.
Thinking is the enemy of creativity.
and anything self-conscious is lousy.
You can’t “try” to do things.
You simply “must” do things.”
Watch it in awe, but believe it.
You can do anything.
