This week’s offerings:OAPs were sitting around taking coffee and talking about all their ailments.
“My arms  have got so weak I can hardly lift this cup of  coffee,” said  one.
“Yes, I know,” said another. “My cataracts are so bad; I can’t even see my coffee.”
“I couldn’t even mark an “X” at election time because my hands are so crippled,” volunteered a third.
“What?  Speak up! What? I can’t hear you, said one elderly lady!”

“I can’t  turn my head because of the arthritis in my neck,” said one, to which several nodded weakly in  agreement.
“My blood  pressure pills make me so dizzy!” exclaimed  another.
“I forget where I am, and where I’m going,” said another.
“I guess that’s the price we pay for getting old,” winced an old man as he slowly shook his head.

The others nodded in  agreement.
“Well, count your Blessings,” said a woman cheerfully….”Thank God we can all still  drive.”

Kind regards
