Yesterday my daughte ….

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! Talking about my “doing something useful” seems to be her favourite topic of conversation.


She was “only thinking of me” and suggested I go down to the senior Center and hang out with the guys. I did this and when I got home last night I decided to teach her a lesson about staying out of my business. I e-mailed her and told her that I had joined a parachute club.


She replied, “Are you nuts? You are about 73 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, “Good grief, where are your glasses! This is a membership to a Prostitute Club, not a Parachute Club.”


“Oh man, I’m in trouble again; 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 she had fainted.


Life as a senior citizen is not getting any easier but sometimes it can be fun…
