60th High School Reunion
He was a widower and she a widow.
They had known each other for a number of years being high school classmates and having attended class reunions in the past without fail.
This 60th anniversary of their class, the widower and the widow made a foursome with two other singles.
They had a wonderful evening, their spirits high.
The widower throwing admiring glances across the table. The widow smiling coyly back at him.
Finally, he picked up courage to ask her, "Will you marry me?"
After about six seconds of careful consideration, she answered, "Yes,..... yes I will!"
The evening ended on a happy note for the widower. But the next morning he was troubled.
Did she say Yes or did she say No?
He couldn't remember. Try as he would, he just could not recall. He went over the conversation of the previous evening, but his mind was blank.
He remembered asking the question but for the life of him could not recall her response. With fear and trepidation he picked up the phone and called her.
First, he explained that he couldn't remember as well as he used to. Then he reviewed the past evening. As he gained a little more courage he then inquired of her. "When I asked if you would marry me, did you say Yes or did you say No?
"Why you silly man, I said Yes. Yes I will and I meant it with all my heart."
The widower was delighted. He felt his heart skip a beat.
Then she continued. "And I am so glad you called because I couldn't remember who asked me!

Thanks for the chuckle Ian. Problem is, if I make it another 20 years to my 60th reunion. The way my memory is failing now, I won't be able to remember where it is.
No matter where you go.......There you are.
Or why you are there, if you do find it!!!

A local science teacher whom could not tell the time of day would greet people with "Good morning afternoon evening to you".
It was announced on the school PA. "Mr. Tukey, if it is any comfort, when you get alzheimers you will never know it."
If it isnt broken, dont repair it.
It happens so often with me that I would consider myself abnormal if I remembered everything!
