As Grandmother used to say
Chimney smoke descends, our nice weather ends
A property manager of single-family residence was showing a unit to
Prospective tenants and asking the usual questions.
"Professionally employed?" he asked.
"We're a military family," the wife answered.
"Oh, yes, ages nine and twelve," she answered proudly.
"Oh, no," she said earnestly. "They're very well behaved."
"We can stay out late tonight," Joe told his friend Brad.
"My wife's gone for a two-week vacation in the Caribbean."
"Jamaica?" Brad asked.
"No, it was her idea."
Yesterday, I went for a check-up and, concluding his exam, the doctor told
Me, "I find very little wrong with you. You are in surprisingly good health
Despite your age and being being quite overweight. My advice to you is
This: If you want to stay healthy, give up those posh dinners for two -
Unless you have someone to share them with."
Newly Discovered Parchment
This parchment just unearthed in a 1902 time capsule found in the grounds
Of Farquar Manor, Kent.
"Please pass this parchment to your fellow gentlemen via royal mail postal
Service or messenger. What follows is a amusing and humorous account of
Living in the modern age in the year of our Lord 1902.
You know you are living in 1902 when:
1) Your chimney sweep is over the age of ten because of new fangled child
2) You no longer play your pianissimo in the evenings as your right arm is
Weary from winding up the gramophone record player.
3) Working class people are allowed jobs in the same company as you.
4) You have twenty types of hat in your wardrobe, one for every occasion.
5) It is no longer illegal to shoot a Frenchman on sight.
6) You exchange your pony and trap for a one of those new motorcars and
Find that it is slower because the man with the red flag can only walk so
7) You've seen a woman's ankle and not been obliged to marry her
8) You feel nostalgic when you see toy soldiers with bright red tunics.
9) As you read this you nod and smile and then make a list of all your
Friends to send this to, passing instructions to your valet to inscribe it
And send it to them.
Proud and pleased as she could be, the new, young bride, Mrs. Stanford
Strothers, strode briskly up to the teller's cage at the bank to cash her
husbands' pay cheque for the first time.
When the teller told her the cheque would have to be endorsed, the bride
Grabbed the pen and unhesitatingly wrote on the back, "I heartily recommend
My husband, Stanford Strothers."
Giving a man his physical, a doctor noticed several dark, ugly bruises on
His shins, so he asked, "Do you play hockey, soccer, or any physical sport?"
"No. I play bridge with my wife."
