the oldies not so daft lol

the oldies not  so daft lol

an elderly chap went to the doctor with hearing problems, after the doctor gave him the various hearing tests,he then supplied him with a hearing aid which cured his problem completely.

on his next visit to the doctors he said, "i cant believe this, for the first time in years my hearing is perfect"

" i am so pleased for you, i bet your family will be ever so pleased" said the doctor,

the elderly chap replied " oh!! i havent told the family yet,,,,,,,,,,

i just sit there and listen to all their conversations" :)

"in fact ive changed my will three times this week!!" :) :) :)

p,s the pic above is of me and my dad ,,,,taken over 60 years ago,, it still takes pride of place in my cabinet yet :)

  • Hi Jimmy. Love the photo and the joke too.

    I think as we get older we miss our parents more and would love to just talk to them. They are the one who truly cared about us through thick and thin and as time goes on we appreciate them more for all they did for us. Hope you are keeping well and looking after yourself. Sara xx

  • Oh Jimmy liked the joke love the photo I still miss mine too, even at my age, especially my Mum. Nobody loves you like your Mum or looks after you when you are ill with that extra mile. Her birthday, Christmas and the anniversary of her passing always make me sad but grateful to for such a wonderful Mum. xx
