Just For Laughs
She walked up and tied her old mule to the hitching post. As she stood there, brushing dust from her face, a young gunslinger stepped out of the saloon with a gun in one hand and a whiskey bottle in the other. The gunslinger looked at the old woman and laughed, “Hey, woman, have you ever danced?” The old woman looked up and said, “No, never did dance never really wanted to.” A crowd gathered as the gunslinger said, “Well, you’re gonna dance now!” and started shooting at the old woman’s feet. Not wanting to get her toes blown off, the old woman starting hopping around. Everyone was laughing. When his gun was empty, the young gunslinger holstered his gun and turned to go back to the saloon. The woman turned to her pack mule, pulled out a shotgun and cocked both hammers. The loud clicks made the crowd stop laughing. The gunslinger heard the sounds and turned around very slowly. The gunman stared at the old woman and at those twin barrels. The shotgun never wavered in the woman’s hands as she said, “Son, have you ever kissed a mule’s backend?” The gunman swallowed hard and said, “No, Ma’am…BUT…I’ve always wanted to!”

Kids Say the Darnest Things
I didn't know if my granddaughter had learned her colors yet, so I decided to test her. I would point out something and ask what color it was. She would tell me and was always correct. It was fun for me, so I continued. At last, she headed for the door, saying, "Grandma, I think you should try to figure out some of these colors yourself!"

On the Light Side
After being married for 50 years, I took a look at my wife one day and said, "Fifty years ago we had a cheap house, a junk car, slept on a sofa bed and watched a 10-inch black and white TV, but I got to sleep with a hot 23-year-old girl every night. Now, I have a 0,000 home, a ,000 car, a nice big bed and a large screen TV, but I'm sleeping with a 69-year-old woman. It seems to me that you're not holding up your side of things." My wife is a very reasonable woman. She told me to go out and find a hot 23-year-old girl and she would make sure that I would once again be living in a cheap house, driving a junk car, sleeping on a sofa bed and watching a 10-inch black and white TV. Aren't older women great? They know how to solve an old guy's problems!
Where Did This Come From?
BATS IN THE BELFRY: A person who is a bit bewildered, confused, (even considered nuts or crazy) is said to have "bats in their belfry." The term goes back to the days when the tallest building in town was the church due to its tall bell tower and steeple. Because this wasn't enclosed, bats loved these towers; and, at night they'd fly all around swirling as if in confusion. Whenever someone was confused, the symbolism too shape of the bats flying all which way around the belfry.
