During a visit to my doctor, I asked him, "How do you determine whether or not an older person should be put in an old age home?"

"Well," he said, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the person to empty the bathtub."


"Oh, I understand," I said. "A normal person would use the bucket because it is bigger than the spoon or the teacup."

"No" he said. "A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?"


ARE YOU GOING TO PASS THIS ON OR DO YOU WANT THE BED NEXT TO MINE?
This was sent to me and I thought you'd enjoy it, too. :)

June...

Loved the bathtub joke. It brightened my day....

Can I impose on you again.. I did successfully post the picture, following your directions. Thanks! At least I thought I did.... Neither that positing, nor my original posting showed up in the Daily Postings. Did I do it wrong? I think I did it by establishing a Thread...

Also, I can't seem find instructions for navigating this site. Some of the terms are new to me. Is there instructions somewhere?
