Weekend Open Mic

Weather:  Typical late August weather for the St. Louis area.  It’s hard to believe September and cooler weather are just around the corner.

Me and my weekend:  Having a pretty quiet weekend here.  

I’ve been feeling a little better and almost back to normal except for joint and arthritis pain that seems to move all over my body depending on what day it is or even what time of day.  It goes from my knees to my hands, wrists, feet and neck, then a while later it lessens and moves on to another spot.  It’s not so bad that I’m miserable, it’s just annoying so far.  But the other night when we went to the baseball game it was my knee that was bothering me.  Of course, we had to walk down 4 flights of stairs.  I felt like the old man that I am becoming.

That’s it from B&P Headquarters in St. Louis. What’s going on in your world?

doctor patientAn 80-year-old Saskatchewan farmer goes to the clinic in Saskatoon for a check-up. The doctor is amazed at what good shape the guy is in and asks, ‘How do you stay in such great physical condition?’

‘I’m from Saskatchewan and in my spare time I like to hunt and fish’ says the old guy, ‘and that’s why I’m In such good shape. I’m up well before daylight in the field plowing and mending fences and when I’m not doing that, I’m out hunting or fishing. In the evening, I have a beer and all is well.’

‘Well’ says the doctor, ‘I’m sure that helps, but there’s got to be more to it. How old was your father when he died?’

‘Who said my father’s dead?’

The doctor is amazed. ‘You mean you’re 80 years old and your father’s still alive? How old is he?’
‘He’s 100 years old,’ says the old Sask boy. ‘In fact he worked with and hunted with me this morning, and then we went to the topless bar for a while and had some beer and that’s why he’s still alive. He’s a Saskatchewan
farmer and he’s a hunter and fisherman too.’

‘Well,’ the doctor says, ‘that’s great, but I’m sure there’s more to it than that. How about your father’s father? How old was he when he died?’

‘Who said my Grandpa’s dead?’

Stunned, the doctor asks, ‘you mean you’re 80 years old and your grandfather’s’ still alive?’

‘He’s 118 years old,’ says the man.

The doctor is getting frustrated at this point, ‘So, I guess he went hunting with you this morning too?’

‘No, Grandpa couldn’t go this morning because he’s getting married today.’

At this point the doctor is close to losing it. ‘Getting married!! Why would a 118 year-old guy want to get married?’

‘Who said he wanted to?’
