Happy Mental Health Day for Us Old Guys/Gals!

Henry was in his back yard trying to fly a kite....
Henry threw the kite up in the air, the wind would catch it for a few seconds, then it would come crashing back down to earth.

He tried this a few more times with no success.
All the while, Valerie is watching from the kitchen window,
Muttering to herself how men need to be told how to do everything.

She opens the window and yelled to him...

"You need a piece of tail."

Henry turned with a confused look on his face and said,

"Make up your mind. Last night, you told me to go fly a kite."

Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.  Ralph and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital.  One day while they  were walking past the hospital swimming pool, Ralph suddenly  jumped into the deep end.

He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there.

Edna promptly jumped in to save him.  She swam to the bottom and pulled him out.  When the Head Nurse Director became aware of Edna's heroic act she immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as she now considered her to be mentally stable.

When she went to tell Edna the news she said, 'Edna, I have good news and bad news.  The good news is you're being discharged, since you were able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and saving the life of the person you love.  I have concluded that your act displays sound mindedness.

'The bad news is, Ralph hung himself in the bathroom with his bathrobe belt right after you saved him.  I am so sorry, but he's dead.'

Edna replied, 'He didn't hang himself. I put him there to dry....  How soon can I go home?'

Happy Mental Health Day!

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
