It Pays to be Old/The Old Man (Weekend Jokes)

It Pays to be Old
An Elderly couple was celebrating their sixtieth anniversary. The couple had married as childhood sweethearts and had moved back to their old neighbourhood after they retired.

old couple gifHolding hands they walked back to their old school.  It was not locked, so they entered, and found the old desk they’d shared where Andy had carved
“I love you, Sally.”

On their way back home, a bag of money fell out of an armored car, practically landing at their feet. Sally quickly picked it up, but not sure what to do with it, they took it home.  There, she counted the money: Fifty-thousand dollars! 

 Andy said, “We’ve got to give it back.”  

Sally said, “Finders keepers.”  

She put the money back in the bag and hid it in their attic. The next day, two FBI men were canvassing the neighborhood looking for the money and knocked on the door.

“Pardon me, but did either of you find a bag that fell out of an armored car yesterday?”     Sally said, “No.”  

Andy said, “She’s lying. She hid it up in the attic.”  

Sally said, “Don’t believe him, he’s getting senile.”

The agents turn to Andy and began to question him.  

One says: “Tell us the story from the beginning” 

 Andy said, “Well, when Sally and I were walking home from school yesterday . . ..”

The first FBI guy turns to his partner and says, “We’re outta here.”

The Old Man
A pious man, who had reached the age of 105, suddenly stopped going to Church. Alarmed by the old fellow’s absence after so many years of faithful old man2 gifattendance, the Priest went to see him. He found him in excellent health, so the Priest asked, “How come after all these years we don’t see you at services anymore?”

The old man lowered his voice. “I’ll tell you,” he whispered. “When I got to be 90, I expected God to take me any day. But then I got to be 95, then 100, then 105. So, I figured that God is very busy and must’ve forgotten about me, and I don’t want to remind Him!”

      Oh yes good ol summer in Oz, hot this morning as usual, sitting in front of the fan, it is 5.30am and the temmp is just under 27C or 81F, so comfortable until later in the day. 😀
      You also have a great weekend.

  13. malc50Mal says:

    Thanks for starting the weekend with a smile Mags. Cheers.

  14. rebekajo says:

    How Great to have the chuckles back! They were all good, but the first was so cute..

    A few minutes ago, in the news, they talked about the temps in Oz … horrific … and some orange-coloured dust storm!

    • magsx2 says:

      Hi rebekajo,
      Glad you had a bit of a laugh. 😀
      Yes the dust storm is on the other side of Australia to me, the dust storm is heading for Western Australia, apparently a cyclone is mixed in there somewhere.
      Some parts of Oz have had very hot weather this summer, and the media are going for it. 😀 For example the other day here where I live the weather powers said it would reach 37C (99F) it was in the papers every day, TV station started to drive me made about it all, but it only got to 32C (90F) that day. 😀
      Our average temp in summer where I live is anything up to 35C (95F) but of course some times it does get a lot hotter than the average. Unfortunately a lot of us our missing out on our summer storms which help to cool it all down a bit, so far not much of that at all.

      • rebekajo says:

        All this makes me so thankful that I am where I am, where temperatures are moderate all year round. I would die!
        My Australian friend, who lives in Sweden, are there visiting now. She said the other day on FB, that it was 38C where she was. I don’t know how you guys do it — the nights must be unbearable..

        • magsx2 says:

          It is a little cooler at night but still hot. I’m the opposite I don’t know if I would be able to handle really cold weather. 😀 I suppose it’s what our bodies are used too. 🙂

  15. Glad to see you back Mags! Those were great jokes too – I love that last one! Hope you have a terrific weekend!

  16. Excellent, great to have you back. Missed these.

  17. Barb says:

    Ahhhhhh….life is back to norma and joking again. thanks.

  18. adinparadise says:

    Aaaw, so sweet that last one. 😀

  19. El Guapo says:

    And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how the weekend should begin.
    After I stopped laughing, I read the first one to my wife.
    She laughed too. 😀

    • magsx2 says:

      Hi El Guapo,
      Oh yes it is always good to have a smile on your face at the beginning of the weekend.
      That is fantastic that you both enjoyed the joke. 🙂
      Have a great weekend.

  20. kymbo says:

  21. niasunset says:

    It is so nice to see you back dear Mags. This was great joke. Thank you, have a nice weekend, love, nia

  22. Thanks so much for cheering us up – loved the last one! I feel rather guilty…while you’re sitting in sweltering hot conditions, I’m expecting the first snow flakes here in Wales to fall at any moment…temperature’s dropping rapidly now. Glad you’re back to your “old” form, making us smile:)

  23. Linda Vernon says:

    Haha! Good chuckles all three Mags! 😀

  24. dearrosie says:

    Hooray Mags is back with her weekend jokes again. You score three out of three for these jokes – although I like them all my fave was #1.

  25. BoJo Photo says:

    Great jokes Mags! It pays to be the old couple!

    A couple was driving down the road one day. The wife kept telling her husband to slow down so he wouldn’t get a ticket. On and on she went without her husband slowing down.

    After a while an officer on the side of the road saw them and turned his lights on to stop them.

    The man’s wife scolded him for not slowing down.

    When the cop walked up to the window he asked the wife, “Do you always yell at your husband like this?”

    To which she replied, “No, only when he is drinking!” 🙂

    Have a great weekend Mags!

  26. Madhu says:

    Loved the first one 😆

  27. Hotly Spiced says:

  29. I love them all. My elderly self can identify with the Age jokes.

  30. “The shinbone is a device for finding furniture in a dark room.” – 🙂 That’s me!!! My shins always have at least one bruise at any given moment…

  31. Yes, so glad to have you back. Ha Ha!

  37. Hey, I know you are very busy, but check out my post tomorrow as I have nominated you for an award (well, two, actually).

  38. Arindam says:
