We couldn't remember if we had given thanks for breakfast. We laughed and Sweetheart prayed for the first or second time.

We laughed at this joke this morning when I found it on my computer. My husband reminded me that I had shared it with him before!

A couple is having problems remembering things. During a checkup, the doctor tells them that they're physically okay, but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember.

Later that night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair. "Want anything while I'm in the kitchen?" he asks.

"Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?"


"Don't you think you should write it down so you can remember it?" she asks.

"No, I can remember it."

"Well, I'd like some strawberries on top, too. Maybe you should write it down, so's not to forget it?"

He says, "I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries."

"I'd also like whipped cream. I'm certain you'll forget that, write it down?" she asks.

Irritated, he says, "I don't need to write it down, I can remember it! Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream - I got it, for goodness sake!" Then he toddles into the kitchen.

After about 20 minutes, The old man returns from the kitchen and hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs.

She stares at the plate for a moment. "Where's my toast ?"


  1. Laughter is indeed the best medicine!
    You two seems to get on famously. You are a real inspiration!

  2. I don't have anything very useful to say except that this made me laugh; but I wanted to remark that I've been following in my google reader and you and your husband are in my thoughts and prayers.

  3. I rememeber when my dad would say to my mom Patsy, I'm going down stairs do you need anything? She would say what she needed and then about 15 minutes later, there was a yell from downstairs HONEY!! What did you say you wanted? Now when I'm going somewhere in the car I have to think of how to get there? Wow it comes to us all doesn't it?
