Red Skeleton 14 keys to a happy marriage

1. Two times a week, we go to a nice restaurant, have a little beverage,
then comes good food and companionship. She goes on Tuesdays, I go on
Fridays.

2. We also sleep in separate beds. Her's is in Ontario and mine is in
Tucson.

3. I take my wife everywhere, but she keeps finding her way back.

4. I asked my wife where she wanted to go for our anniversary.
"Somewhere I haven't been in a long time!" she said. So I suggested the
kitchen.

5. We always hold hands. If I let go, she shops.

6. She has an electric blender, electric toaster and electric bread
maker. Then she said "There are too many gadgets and no place to sit
down!" So I bought her an electric chair.

7. My wife told me the car wasn't running well because there was water
in the carburetor. I asked where the car was, she told me "In the Lake."
8. She got a mudpack and looked great for two days. Then the mud fell
off.

9. She ran after the garbage truck, yelling "Am I too late for the
garbage?" The driver said "No, jump in!"
10. Remember. Marriage is the number one cause of divorce.

11. Statistically, 100% of all divorces start with marriage.

12. I married Miss Right. I just didn't know her first name was Always.

13. I haven't spoken to my wife in 18 months. I don't like to interrupt
her.

14. The last fight was my fault. My wife asked "What's on the TV?" I
said
"Dust!"

The Importance of Walking

Walking can add minutes to your life.
This enables you at 85 years old
to spend an additional 5 months in a nursing
home at $7000 per month.

I like long walks,
especially when they are taken
by people who annoy me.

The only reason I would take up walking
is so that I could hear heavy breathing again.

I have to walk early in the morning,
before my brain figures out what I'm doing.

I joined a health club last year,
spent about 400 bucks.
Haven't lost a pound.
Apparently you have to go there.

Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise',
I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

The advantage of exercising every day
is so when you die, they'll say,
'Well, she looks good doesn't she.'

If you are going to try cross-country skiing,
start with a small country.

I know I got a lot of exercise
the last few years,
just getting over the hill.

We all get heavier as we get older,
because there's a lot more information
in our heads. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

AND MY FAVORITE …

“Every time I start thinking too much about how I look,
I just find a Happy Hour and by the time I leave,
“I look just fine.”

One day my 5 yrold niece decided to play the shadow game (annoyingly repeating what the other person says) w/her Dad (my brother). After numerous repeats my brother says, "OK that's enough!" Niece repeats, "OK that's enough!" "I mean it!" he says. "I mean it!" she repeats. MY brother then says, "OK, if Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, how many pickled peppers did Peter Piper pick?" To which my niece replied, "I don't care Dad." LOL LOL LOL =}

Bubba the Archaeologist..

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, New York scientists
found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years and came to the conclusion, that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago.
Not to be outdone by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed, a
California archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly after, A story
in the LA Times read: " California archaeologists, finding of 200
year old copper wire, have concluded that their ancestors already had an
advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than the New
Yorkers"
One week later. A local newspaper in Oklahoma reported the following:

"After digging as deep as 30 feet in his pasture near Owasso, Oklahoma
Bubba, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely
nothing. Bubba has therefore concluded that 300 years ago,Oklahoma had
already gone wireless".

Just makes a person proud to be an Okie, don't it.

I am old !!!!!

… THOUGHT YOU MIGHT ENJOY THIS …
'Someone asked the other day, 'What was your favorite fast food when you were growing up?'
'We didn't have fast food when I was growing up,' I informed him.
'All the food was slow.'

'C'mon, seriously. Where did you eat?'


'It was a place called 'at home,'' I explained. !
'Mom cooked every day and when Dad got home from work, we sat down together at the dining room table, and if I didn't like what she put on my plate I was allowed to sit there until I did like it..'

By this time, the kid was laughing so hard I was afraid he was going to suffer serious internal damage, so I didn't tell him the part about how I had to have permission to leave the table.
But here are some other things I would have told him about my childhood if I figured his system could have handled it :


Some parents NEVER owned their own house, never wore Levis, never set foot on a golf course, never traveled out of the country or had a credit card. In their later years they had something called a revolving charge card. The card was good only at Sears Roebuck . Or maybe it was Sears & Roebuck. Either way, there is no Roebuck anymore. Maybe he died.

My parents never drove me to soccer practice. This was mostly because we never had heard of soccer. I had a bicycle that weighed probably 50 pounds, and only had one speed, (slow)
We didn't have a television in our house until I was 19.
It was, of course, black and white, and the station went off the air at midnight, after playing the national anthem and a poem about God; it came back on the air at about 6 a.m. and there was usually a locally produced news and farm show on, featuring local people..

I was 21 before I tasted my first pizza, it was called 'pizza pie.'
When I bit into it, I burned the roof of my mouth and the cheese slid off, swung down, plastered itself against my chin and burned that, too. It's still the best pizza I ever had.

I never had a telephone in my room.
The only phone in the house was in the living room and it was on a party line. Before you could dial, you had to listen and make sure some people you didn't know weren't already using the line.


Pizzas were not delivered to our home, but milk was.


All newspapers were delivered by boys and all boys delivered newspapers — my brother delivered a newspaper, six days a week. It cost 7 cents a paper, of which he got to keep 2 cents. He had to get up at 6 A.M. every morning. On Saturday, he had to collect the 42 cents from his customers. His favorite customers were the ones who gave him 50 cents and told him to keep the change. His least favorite customers were the ones who seemed to never be home on collection day.



Movie stars kissed with their mouths shut. At least, they did in the movies. There were no movie ratings because all movies were responsibly produced for everyone to enjoy viewing, without profanity or violence or most anything offensive.

If you grew up in a generation before there was fast food, you may want to share some of these memories with your children or grandchildren. Just don't blame me if they bust a gut laughing.

Growing up isn't what it used to be, is it?


MEMORIES from a friend :
My Dad is cleaning out my grandmother's house (she died in December) and he brought me an old Royal Crown Cola bottle. In the bottle top was a stopper with a bunch of holes in it.. I knew immediately what it was, but my daughter had no idea. She thought they had tried to make it a salt shaker or something. I knew it as the bottle that sat on the end of the ironing board to 'sprinkle' clothes with because we didn't have steam irons. Man, I am old.


How many do you remember?

Head lights dimmer switches on the floor.
Ignition switches on the dashboard.
Heaters mounted on the inside of the fire wall.
Real ice boxes.
Pant leg clips for bicycles without chain guards.
Soldering irons you heat on a gas burner.
Using hand signals for cars without turn signals.

It
was a busy
morning, about 8:30, when an elderly gentleman in his 80's
arrived to have
stitches removed from his thumb. He said he was in a
hurry as he had an
appointment at 9:00
am.
I
took his vital
signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be
over an hour before someone
would to able to see him. I saw him
looking at his watch and decided, since I
was not busy with another
patient, I would evaluate his wound. On exam, it was
well healed, so
I talked to one of the doctors, got the needed supplies to
remove his
sutures and redress his wound.

While taking
care of
his wound, I asked him if he had another doctor's
appointment this
morning, as
he was in such a hurry.

The
gentleman told me no, that he needed to go to
the nursing home to eat
breakfast with his wife. I inquired as to her
health.

He
told me that she
had been there
for a while and that she was a victim of Alzheimer's
Disease.

As we
talked, I asked if she would be upset if he was
a bit late.

He
replied that she no longer knew who he
was, that she had not recognized him in
five years now.

I was
surprised, and asked him, 'And you still go every
morning, even
though she doesn't know who you are?'

He smiled as
he
patted my hand and
said,

'She
doesn't
know me, but I still know who she
is.'

I
had to hold back
tears as he left, I had goose bumps on my arm, and
thought,

'That is
the kind of love I want in my
life.'

True love is
neither physical, nor
romantic.

True
love is an
acceptance of all that is, has been, will be, and will
not
be…

I read through the first section and felt abashed. I started a mantra of 'ohwhatafoolIam . . . I continued reading and fell down laughing. My husband asked me what the … was wrong. I read him the joke I had just finished. He told me to save it his mother woud love it. She (a blonde) loves and collects blond jokes. This one (tiger puzzle) had her cackling.

Joni55, I have to disagree with you on the topic of chivalry and women's lib, women's lib didn't kill chivalry, the rebel, macho attitude in men buried it.

I took pride in watching my grandfather, father and my older brothers in their mannerism's towards women and themselves, during my youth I absorbed and implemented all of what I witnessed that was of a positive nature into my character as a man, personal grooming, attitude, double cuff shirts with cufflinks. french cuff pants with creases, a tie or an occasional bow tie, a pocket square (handkerchief) in the breast pocket on a suit jacket or a blazer, I never liked hats or caps though, dress shoes shined and galoshes worn in the rain, holding a door open, pulling the chair out, helping her with her coat, treating a woman as a woman are all gone (it will return) but still practiced by me, sometimes I feel like a dinosaur but I feel good about myself and it turns the ladies on as well as turn other men green with envy !

The days of the classy, classic gentlemen (Cary Grant, David Niven, Clark Gable, Errol Flynn, Basil Rathbone)
and many, many more is temporarily gone (trust me).

As that was lost, men begin to lose respect for women, using the excuse of women's lib as the culprit, physically, mentally, emotionally and verbally abusing them because they (men) had lost the respect and dignity that they once had in themselves, women only wanted equal rights because they were denied equal access and treatment in the workplace and socially.

Men lost respect for themselves and blamed it on women and women's lib and took their frustrations out on women in every way possible.

The real victims were those who refused to understand the need for social change, (the old boy's club), they felt that their power was lost because of it, women gained confidence and stature, cultural change was evident, unfortunately culture change became culture shock for many.

I would love to continue this subject but this in not the place or space for it.

Women just wanted respect, yet gained a whole lot more in the process.

Evolution can sometimes hurt when it's misunderstood !

I met my husband at work. He worked in the engineering department and I worked in accounting. I used to go talk to him each day at lunch. One day, I mentioned that a guy had cancelled a date to the sports show. So, he offered to take me. We went out almost every week after for dinner. And, that continued well into our marriage.

2 years ago, he died from a stroke. Now, that I am feeling better, I miss him even more. I wish he were here to see how I am doing.

Thank you! I feel that if I do meet someone, they will have to accept Ciro as being a part of my life. I cannot and will not forget him and I certainly will not get rid of things that remind me of him. However, I may be able to put things aside for the sake of a relationship. I just want to backtrack from time to time and remember a happy part of my life. Things weren't always perfect, and I don't think they are with any relationship. It took me getting well that made me realize just how much I loved him.

Yeah, I have a 15 year old beagle and we do have a park nearby where people take their dogs. Good idea!

I'm a dinosaur, a relic from a time that passed by, I was born during the wrong time period, I enjoy being a bachelor now, many people ask me if I'm for real, after being around me they see that it's not an act, it's just me, who I am and what I have been taught by both males and females, a man has an obligation to be a gentleman in life and in society, he is and will always be judged by his character, I love being in love, in love with life and different !

I often have felt that I was born in the wrong time period. I met a guy on datehookup but he won't continue a relationship because he feels that in order to have a relationship, you have to be "intimate". I don't believe that and told him, "not unless you put a ring on my finger!" He has called me a couple of times, but no plans for another date. It is so hard. I never meet anyone here, in PA. And, when I do meet someone, they aren't available. So, I continue my datemare.

Intimacy for me is to hold a woman's hands, look deep into her eyes, touching her heart while exploring her soul, it's very hard to be forgotten once you take that route, most men don't know about or care about that !

I agree. I do hope the women in your life appreciate you. I wanted to show someone a picture of my husband and me and it accidently posted it as my profile picture. It is one of my favorites. He died 2 years ago and I miss him dearly.

You miss him because he was so special in your life, as you were in his.
The thoughts and memories that you have will always keep him alive in both your mind and your heart, don't ever let them go, they are priceless !

Why thank you !

My grandfather and father were both this way as were my brothers, so I too must be, I can't be the one to break the chain, besides my mother would never forgive me if I acted outside of the respect and character that she helped instill in me, hopefully my sons will adapt into their lives what they deem as good in me and discard what they dislike and pass that on to their children one day.

Roses as well as all flowers are romantic, beauties in their own right, just as women are, I love walking in the park, hand in hand and stopping to pick a flower to give to the one I'm with, so simple, romantic and never forgotten.

Women never stopped accepting flowers, men stopped giving them sincerely, many treated it as though it was taboo or a chore, or were just to cheap to do so, romance is priceless and chivalry is traditional, worthy of being taught once again !

One year, on our anniversary, my husband was taking me home and he said, "I better get you flowers or you will get mad." Guess what I felt like telling him to do with them?!! He almost always felt that way. But, then when he got sick, I brought him flowers and he commented that he did not get a chance to give me some. He had talked to my cousin and she was encouraging him to do it. That meant more to me than any flowers he could give me.

Part of me likes the old way and the other part can't help but speak out against it. And I am not joking. But of course I like William Holden too.
