At 82-years of age, Sam was in the winter of his life. But for this old man, it felt more like springtime, all the time.
He had a happy skip in his step and he wore a smile like it was part of his wardrobe. It’s easy to stay upbeat when you are well and truly blessed.
But one day, everything changed.
Bear Tales posted this funny story about a fortunate old man whose luck ran out one day.
Here’s how it happened.
When I went to lunch today, I noticed an old man sitting on a park bench sobbing his eyes out. I stopped and asked him what was wrong.
He said, “I have a 22 year old wife at home. She rubs my back every morning and then gets up and makes me pancakes, sausage, fresh fruit and freshly ground coffee.”
I said, “Well, then why are you crying?”
He said, “She makes me homemade soup for lunch and my favorite brownies, cleans the house and then watches sports TV with me for the rest of the afternoon.”
I said, “Well, why are you crying?” He said, “For dinner she makes me a gourmet meal with wine and my favorite dessert and then makes love with me until the wee hours”
I said, “Well, why in the world would you be crying?”
He said, “I can’t remember where I live!”
Does this sound a little bit familiar? If so you’re not alone.
The dreaded memory loss of old age is no joke. It catches up to most of us at some point.
Hopefully, his young lady friend will think to look at him at his favorite bench near the duck pond.
When she finds him he is sure to explain, “I’m not old; I’m vintage!”
