My 500th POST!

Dave is 90 years old. He's played golf every day since his retirement 25 years ago. One day he arrives home looking downcast. "That's it," he tells his wife. "I'm giving up golf. My eyesight has become so bad that once I hit the ball I can't see where it went." His wife sympathizes and makes him a cup of tea. As they sit down she says,

"Why don't you take my brother with you and give it one more try."

"That's no good," sighs Dave, "your brother's 103 years old. He can't help."

"He may be 103," says the wife, "but his eyesight is perfect."

So the next day Dave heads off to the golf course with his brother-in-law. He tees up, takes a mighty swing and squints down the fairway.

He turns to the brother-in-law and says, "Did you see the ball?"

"Of course I did!" replied the brother-in-law. "I have perfect eyesight".

"Where did it go?" says Dave.

"I don't remember."

giggles... congrats on your 500th post...
i read your comment on my and marthas text... as did she...and she left a response...
part was to defend herself and her "situation" as she does live with her babys daddy and does intend to stay with him, he does want to marry her she does not want to marry him right now...and blah blah blah... anyway i totally agree with you and have days where the situation is harder than others. I so feel for and understand you sister and hope that our kids live long enough to have the wisdom to back their opinions :)
love ya
