Dating in 1957

It was a hot Saturday evening in the summer of 1957 and Fred had a date with Peggy Sue.
He arrived at her house and rang the bell. "Oh, come on in!" Peggy Sue's mother said as she welcomed Fred in. "Have a seat in the living room. Would you like something to drink? Lemonade? Iced tea?" 
"Iced tea, please," Fred said.
Mom brought the iced tea. "So, what are you and Peggy planning to do tonight?" she asked. "Oh, probably catch a movie, and then maybe grab a bite to eat at the malt shop, maybe take a walk on the beach..."
"Peggy likes to screw, you know," Mom informed him.
"Uh...really?" Fred replied, with raised eyebrows.
     "Oh, yes!" the mother continued. "When she   goes out with her friends, that's all they do!" 

"Is that so?" asked Fred, incredulous. 

"Yes," said the mother. "As a matter of fact, she'd screw all night if we let her!"
"Well, thanks for the tip," Fred said as he began thinking about alternate plans for the evening. A moment later, Peggy Sue came down the stairs looking pretty as a picture wearing a pink blouse and hoop skirt, and with her hair tied back in a bouncy ponytail. She greeted Fred.
     "Have fun, kids," the mother said as they left.
Half an hour later, a completely disheveled Peggy Sue burst into the house and slammed the front door behind her.
"The Twist, Mom!" she angrily yelled to her mother in the kitchen. "The damned dance is called the Twist!
And!!   Headed for Walmart!!!

Hi hi hi! What a story! So hilarious!
Thanks for sharing, my friend!

Here is one I found yesterday :

OLD people have problems that you haven't even considered yet!

An 78-year-old man was requested by his Doctor for a sperm count as part of

his physical exam.

The doctor asked what happened and the man explained, 'Well, doc, it's like

this - first I tried with my right hand, but nothing.

Then I tried with my left hand, but still nothing.

'Then I asked my wife for help. She tried with her right hand, then with

her left, still nothing. She tried with her mouth, first with the teeth

in, then with her teeth out, still nothing.

'We even called up Arleen, the lady next door and she tried too, first with

both hands, then an armpit, and she even tried squeezin' it between her

knees, but still nothing.'

The doctor was shocked! 'You asked your neighbour?'

The old man replied, 'Yep, none of us could get the jar open.'

This pic is so interesting... The couple seems to be really enjoying themselves and the tricycle is quite a piece of machine!
God bless you!

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.
