    Aging Gracefully

    A balding, white haired man walked into a jewellery store this past
    Friday evening with a beautiful much younger gal at his side. He
    told the jeweller he was looking for a special ring for his girlfriend.


    The jeweller looked through his stock and brought out a $5,000 ring.


    The man said, 'No, I'd like to see something more special.'


    At that statement, the jeweller went to his special stock and brought
    another ring over. 'Here's a stunning ring at only $40,000' the jeweller
    said.


    The lady's eyes sparkled and her whole body trembled with excitement.


    The old man seeing this said, 'We'll take it.'


    The jeweller asked how payment would be made and the man stated,
    'By cheque. I know you need to make sure my cheque is good, so I'll write it
    now and you can call the bank on Monday to verify the funds; I'll pick the
    ring up on Monday afternoon.'


    On Monday morning, the jeweller angrily phoned the old man and said
    'Sir...There's no money in that account.'


    'I know,' said the old man...'But let me tell you about my weekend.

    Ahh yes.
    From the Prairie Home Companion a short song

    I used to work in Chicago
    at a local convenience store
    I used to work in Chicago
    I did, but i dont any more

    A lady walked in
    She had porcelain skin
    and i asked her what she came in for

    Liquour she said
    and lick her I did
    and I don't work there no more
    We are the measure of all things. And the beauty of our creation, of our art is proportional to the beauty of ourselves of our souls. Jonas Mekas

    Humph! I aim to be disgraceful.

    My brother-in-law died just recently, his passing has started a family and friends conversation about dying. It is my fervent wish to be shot by a jealous husband. If I have to go I may as well go in style.

    Lol!

    Makes think of the time i went a party many years ago...
    The hostess was seperated from her husband, she said...
    Well, having stayed the night and suddenly being alerted by a knock on the front door at stupid o'clock in the morning, i scooped up all of my clothes without leaving so much as a sock and relocated to the spare room.
    Phew!
    Life eh?
