A group of ladies, who were in the same class at school, met up for a reunion every ten years.

When they were thirty they to the Ocean Grill because the waiters were so handsome and sexy.

When they were forty they went to the same restaurant because it was near to the weight loss clinic they all attended.

When they were fifty, again they chose the Ocean Grill as the view of the sea was unparalleled.

When they were sixty it had to be their old haunt because the menu had easily chewable dishes.

When they were seventy the Ocean Grill was ideal because of its wheelchair access.

When they were eighty they went to the Ocean Grill because they'd never been there before.



  1. Okay; okay.

    Well, one old lady joke deserves another:

    Two elderly women were out driving in a large car. Both could barely see over the dashboard. As they were cruising along they came to an intersection. The stoplight was red but they just went on through. The woman in the passenger seat thought to herself, “I must be losing it. I could have sworn we just went through a red light.”

    After a few more minutes they came to another intersection and the light was red again and again they went right through. This time the woman in the passenger seat was almost sure that the light had been red but was really concerned that she was losing it. She was getting nervous and decided to pay very close attention to the road and the next intersection to see what was going on.

    At the next intersection, sure enough, the light was definitely red and they went right through and she turned to the other woman and said, “Milllie! Did you know we just ran through three red lights in a row! You could have killed us!”

    Millie turned to her and said, “Oh, am I driving?”

  2. I guess one of the good things about being a cancer surviving diabetic with a bad heart is the hope I won’t make that phase.


  3. Don’t bank on it, jimB. I’m a cancer surviving diabetic with a laundry list of medical problems, but it looks like I’m going to make it until Kingdom comes. My dad, the M.D., used to say that the way to live forever was to get some chronic ailment(s) that required regular monitoring. It was the “never sick a day in his/her life” types that keeled over at an early age.

  4. Oh, for goodness sake, Erika. I know that I have told you, on more than one occasion not to encourage Ellie. Yet you persist.

    All I can say is that if her Holy Woman sainthood doesn’t come through it will be all your fault.

  5. Here’s one I just heard (courtesy of Click & Clack on “Car Talk”)

    A handsome elder gentleman, about 90, sidles up to a handsome elder lady of about 85, in bar.

    He inquires of her: “So . . . do I come here often?”


  6. Ellie a Jewish woman who frequented my Episcopal Church in Milford Delaware told me that joke about the women in the car 9 years ago. I used it in the sermon the next Sunday and it was received brilliantly!
