    I asked. Talking about my “doing something useful” seems to be her favorite topic of conversation.

    She is "only thinking of me," she said, and suggested, I go down to the Senior Center and hang out with the fellas.

    So, I did and when I got home, decided to play a prank on her. I sent her an e-mail saying that I had joined the Senior Parachute Club.

    She replied, "Are you nuts? You're 86-years-old and now you're going to start jumping out of airplanes?"

    I told her that I even had a Membership Card and e-mailed a copy to her.

    Immediately, she telephoned me and yelled, "Good grief, Dad, where are your glasses?! This is a membership to a Prostitute Club, not a Parachute Club."

    "Oh man, am I in trouble," I said, "I signed up for five jumps a week!"
    that's funny stuff right there...
    I'm lovin' it! Bill.

    That wouldn't be a "Golden Parachute" would it? I've heard that oysters will put lead in your pencil, problem is finding someone to write to......Jetspray
