Parachute Club


parachuteAs we are all getting a wee bit jumpy over the provincial election, I decided it was time for something a little lighter. As the leadership candidates are busy trying to woo the seniors by visiting all the island nursing homes I thought this might be appropriate!!!

Where are your glasses, mom ??
Yesterday my daughter e-mailed me again, asking why I didn’t do something useful with my time.
“Like sitting around the pool and drinking wine is not a good thing?” I asked.
Talking about my “doing-something-useful” seems to be her favorite topic of conversation.
She was “only thinking of me”, she said and suggested that I go down to the Seniors Center and hang out with the guys.  I did this and when I got home last night, I decided to play a prank on her.
I e-mailed her and told her that I had joined a Parachute Club.
She replied, “Are you nuts?  You are 78 years old and now you’re going to start jumping out of airplanes?”
I told her that I even got a Membership Card and e-mailed a copy to her.
She immediately telephoned me and yelled, “Good grief, Mom, where are your glasses?!
This is a Membership to a Prostitute Club, not a Parachute Club.”
“Oh man, I’m in trouble again,” I said.  “I really don’t know what to do.  I signed up for five jumps a week!!”
The line went quiet and her friend picked up the phone and said that my daughter had fainted.
Life as a Senior Citizen is not getting any easier, but sometimes it can be fun.
Perhaps some of our seniors can fool the politicians by jumping off  the same old LiberaL/PC leader—- ship
God Bless and keep reading.

    Paddy thought his new girlfriend might be the one but after looking through her knickers drawer and finding a nurse’s outfit, a French maids outfit, and a police woman’s uniform, he finally decided if she can’t hold down a job, she’s not for him
    After 100 years lying on the sea bed, Irish divers were amazed to find that the Titanic’s swimming pool was still full.

    Hopefully not too Politically out of order. I know we have been telling Irish Humour for years. The Irish ‘navvy’s’ built the Sankey Viaduct by hand in the 1828-1830 which carries the Liverpool to Manchester railway line and it opened in 1930 and is still supporting trains. George Stephenson, of Rocket fame was the Engineer.
