A Few Laughs

 

MORE—LIVE AND LEARN AND PASS IT ON


I’ve learned that most of the things I worry about never happen.

I’ve learned that every great achievement was once considered impossible.

I’ve learned that I should make the little decisions with my head and big decisions with my heart.

I’ve learned that to love and be loved is the greatest joy in the world.

I’ve learned that if there were no problems there would be no opportunities.

I’ve learned that it doesn’t cost anything to be nice.

PRACTICALITY—PLAN AHEAD

 

     Jacob, age 92, and Rebecca, age 89, living in Florida, are all excited about their decision to get married. 

 

     They go for a stroll to discuss the wedding, and on the way they pass a drugstore.  Jacob suggests they go in.  Jacob addresses the man behind the counter:  “Are you the owner?”  The pharmacist answers,  “Yes.”  Jacob  “We’re about to get married.  Do you sell heart medication?”  Pharmacist:  “Of course we do.”  Jacob:  “How about medicine for circulation?”  Pharmacist:  “All kinds.”  Jacob:  “Medicine for rheumatism and scoliosis?”  Pharmacist:  “Definitely.”  Jacob:  “How about Viagra?”  Pharmacist:  “Of course.”  Jacob :  “Medicine for memory problems, arthritis, jaundice?”  Pharmacist:  “Yes, a large variety.  The works.”  Jacob:  “What about vitamins, sleeping pills, Geritol, antidotes for Parkinson’s disease?”  Pharmacist:  “Absolutely.”  Jacob:  “You sell wheelchairs and walkers?”  Pharmacist:  “All speeds and sizes.”  

 

     Jacob:  “We’d like to use this store as our Bridal Registry.”
