Silly Saturday - Sometimes It Pays to be Old




No one believes seniors . . . everyone  thinks they are senile.



An Elderly couple were celebrating their  sixtieth anniversary. The couple had married as childhood sweethearts and  had moved back to their old neighborhood after they retired. 

Holding 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."

Did you ever say something, and as you said it, you knew it came out wrong? :) No "do-overs" in a live conversation...

I'll need to remember this for the next time I discover a sack of money ;-) Anyway, I was just telling MB that if he doesn't start wearing ear protection when using the leaf blower, trimmer, mower etc. he is going to be a deaf old man. And I'll have absolutely zero patience for him :D (I'm so nice!)

Oh how cute! I think in my case the story would be flipped and I'd be the senile one.

I LOVE that picture! It looks so sweet. I TOTALLY love old people and lucky me, they usually like my company too :o)

I can sit for hours listening to their stories of life, family, happy times, sad times and lessons learned. They are a wealth of information.

HIGH FIVE to old people and lots of ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Haha! Oh my goodness... That didn't come out right!
Well, it is unusual for old people to start a sentence with "...were walking home from school yesterday.." don't you think so? :D
