Neeko's Joke of the Day!

Dear Grandpa - My VERY good friend, Neeko, likes to tell me jokes. He's so funny and they're the kind of jokes Mom lets me hear. Here's the one for today (posted with Neeko's permission):

~Seems an elderly gentleman had serious hearing problems for a number of years.
He went to the doctor and the doctor was able to have him fitted for a set of hearing aids that allowed the gentleman to hear 100%. The elderly gentleman went back in a month to the doctor and the doctor said, "Your hearing is perfect. Your family must be really pleased you can hear again."
To which the gentleman said, "Oh, I haven't told my family yet. I just sit around and listen to the conversations. I've changed my will five times!"~

(hee hee hee)

I thought you'd laugh at THAT one.

Here's another you'll appreciate:

~Sitting on the side of the highway waiting to catch speeding drivers, a State Police Officer sees a car puttering along at 22 MPH. He thinks to himself, "this driver is just as dangerous as a speeder!" So he turns on his lights and pulls the driver over. Approaching the car, he notices that there are five old ladies -- two in the front seat and three in the back -- wide eyed and white as ghosts. The driver, obviously confused, says to him, "Officer, I don't understand, I was doing exactly the speed limit! What seems to be the problem?" "Ma'am," the officer replies, "you weren't speeding, but you should know that driving slower than the speed limit can also be a danger to other drivers". "Slower than the speed limit? No sir, I was doing the speed limit exactly... Twenty-two miles an hour!" the old woman says a bit proudly. The State Police officer, trying to contain a chuckle explains to her that 22 was the route number, not the speed limit. A bit embarrassed, the woman grinned and thanked the officer for pointing out her error. "But before I let you go, Ma'am, I have to ask... Is everyone in this car OK? These women seem awfully shaken and they haven't muttered a single peep this whole time," the officer asks. "Oh, they'll be all right in a minute officer. We just got off Route 119."~

Mom says you used to tell really good jokes when she was little. And stories about Bernie Bunny and Sy Seagull. And she remembers that you'd sing some silly song about "Clancy lowered the boom..boom...boom...!" when you'd take walks along the beach. She was maybe three years old but she hasn't forgotten those times...the best of times ever.


Love you, Grandpa...

Your Grand Dog, Mary-Margaret
