Thanks for all the comments folks. Much appreciated.
I found this version of the song from The Sound
of Music. I kind of think it is aimed at us seniors.!!
Mucaine and nose drops and needles for knitting,
Walkers and handrails and new dental fittings,
Bundles of magazines tied up in string
These are a few of our favourite things.
Sore backs and cataracts and hearing aids and glasses,
Polidents and Fixadent and false teeth in glasses,
Pacemakers, golf carts and porches with swings,
These are a few of our favorite things,
When the pipes leak, when the bones creak,
When the knees go bad, We simply remember our
favorite things, and then we don’t feel so bad.
Hot teas and crumpets, and and corn pads for bunions
No spicy hot food or food cooked with onions,
Bathrobes and heat pads and hot meals they bring,
These are a few of our favorite things.
Back pains, confused brains, and no fear of sinning,
Thin bones and fractures and hair that is thinning,
And we won’t mention our short, shrunken frames,
If we can remember our friends and their names.
When the joints ache, when the hips break,
When the eyes go sad,
We simply remember the great life we’ve had,
And then we don’t feel so bad !
<><><><><> “Blonde guy joke.” <><><><><>
An Irishman, a Mexican and a blonde guy were doing
construction work on scaffoldng on the 20th floor
of a building.
They were eating lunch and the Irishman said “Corned
beef and cabbage. If I get corned beef and cabbage
one more time for lunch I’m going to jump off this
The Mexican opened his lunch box and exclaimed,
“Burritos again. If I get burritos one more time I’m
going to jump off too.”
The blonde guy opened his lunch and said, “Bologna again.
If I get a bologna sandwich one more time, I’m jumping too.”
The next day the Irishman opened his lunchbox, saw
corned beef and cabbage and jumped to his death.
The Mexican opened his lunch, saw a burrito and he
The blonde guy opened his lunch, saw the bologna and jumped
to his death too.
At the funeral the Irishman’s wife was weeping. She said,
“If I’d known how really tired he was of corned beef and
cabbage, I never would have given it to him again.”
The Mexican’s wife also wept and said, “I could have given him ham
tacos or enchiladas. I didn’t realise he hated burritos so much.”
Everyone turned and stared at the blonde’s wife.
“Hey, don’t look at me,” she said, “he makes his own lunch.”
