Joke Time

I spotted several familiar names and faces over at Merle's but there may still be some who haven't seen this one.

Regular post follows.

<><><> Exercise for Seniors <><><>

Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you

have plenty of room at each side.

With a 5 kg (10lb) potato sack in each hand, extend your

arms straight out from your sides and hold them there

as long as you can. Try to hold for a full minute, then

relax. Each day, you’ll find that you can hold this position

for just a bit longer.


After a couple of weeks, move up to a 10 kg (20lb) sack.

Then 50 kg (100 lb) potato sacks and eventually try to lift

a 100 kg (200lb).


After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each

of the sacks; but be careful.

That's a good one!

Oh and don't worry, when we beat you guys on August 20th, I won't rub it in too much :-) muah hahahaha

Alice said...


I liked that.

Hey Granny Ann. Sorry, I've been writing up bits of my story instead of Blogging for the past few days, but I'm alive and kicking and back in action for the time being now.

Miss me?


Good luck finding shoes for Elcie (mun hated that part of back to school shopping), hope you and those around you survive the moving of cats from one place to another (not worried about the cats. More worried about human limbs), pass on sympathy to Rebecca with her injuries, love to all and *hugs* for you.

I just love Merle and her jokes...she made my sister laugh with the spaghetti joke...she said it was better than therapy!!!
A good belly laugh or a smile is always a good thang!!

Abandoned in Pasadena said...

It makes for a better day when you start it out with a good belly laugh, so thanks for the joke...It's one I can remember and I'll be spreading it around today amongst the people without computers.

I copied that to an e-mail for my friend who does catering. She will love it, as I did. I have no blog - but enjoy lurking @ yours. Certainly admire what you are doing keeping up with your loved ones. I am yet another grandma, but lack your energy level. (Darn it!)

Jenny said...

Ha! Love it!

Ginny said...

LOL. I've never heard that one before :-D

JunieRose said...


Very funny....and I, somehow, had missed that at Merle's, although I visit her site often!

Hope you're having a good day, Ann.


PI said...

Thank goodness you were joking Ann I was worried for a moment.

Granny said...


Thanks for the comment. Some blogs won't allow anonymous comments (I do so far) so you might think about setting up a blogger name even if you don't have a blog.


Beth said...

Thanks...I emailed it to MIL!!

Ann said...

That was great. I needed the laugh today. I thought it was serious at first and was feeling rather inadequate thinking there is no way I could hold 2 20lb bags like that for a minute, never mind the higher weights. I can't wait to share this one.

3catsmeow4me said...

Thats funny. I'll have to email it to a few people.

Mommy off the Record said...

That's just about my speed. Thanks for the laugh!

mreddie said...

Sounds like a reasonable exercise to me - just about what I can handle. ec

PEA said...

madcapmum said...

I'm dragging my butt these days, but Hello Ann! I imagine I'll be back with something more lively in not too long.

DA said...

The Mama said...

Very funny, thanks for the chuckle!

Puss-in-Boots said...

My mind boggled when I started reading that joke, but loved the punchline! Hope you find shoes for Elcie. How are Carol and Ray progressing? Thanks for visiting Oscar, he loves your comments.

Take care

Crazedmomof4 said...

Bridgermama said...
