I am 77
See how attentive they are !!!!
I tell them a-joke-a-day. Well, I don't know if you like to hear a joke.
I am not short of listeners.
But if you want to listen, here is a short one for you too.
An elderly man in Queensland had owned a large property for several years.
He had a dam in one of the lower paddocks where he had planted mango and avocado trees and they yielded well, giving him good returns.
The dam had been fixed up for swimming when it was built and he also had some picnic tables placed there in the shade of the fruit trees.
One evening the old farmer decided to go down to the dam to look it over, as he hadn't been there for a while.
He grabbed a ten litre bucket to bring back some fruit.
As he neared the dam, he heard voices shouting and laughing with glee.
As he came closer he saw that it was a bunch of young women skinny-dipping in his dam.
He made the women aware of his presence and they all went to the deep end.
One of the women shouted to him, "We're not coming out until you leave!"
The old man frowned, "I didn't come down here to watch you ladies swim naked or make you get out of the dam naked."
He paused a moment and cleared his throat with deep sympathy and glanced over the faces of the young women.
Holding the bucket up he said, "I'm here to feed the crocodiles."
Moral: Old men may walk slow, but they can still think fast.
