Courtyard Humor

A distraught citizen phoned her doctor’s office. “Is it true,“ she wanted to know, “that the medication you prescribed has to be taken for the rest of my life?” “Yes, I’m afraid so,“ the doctor told her. There was a moment of silence before the older woman replied, “I’m wondering, then, just how serious is my condition because this prescription is marked NO REFILLS!”


Three older ladies were discussing the trials and tribulations of getting older.

One said, “Sometimes I catch myself with a jar of mayonnaise in my hand while standing in front of the refrigerator, and I can’t remember whether I need to put it away or start making a sandwich.”

The second lady chimed in with, “Yes, sometimes I find myself on the landing of the stairs and can’t remember whether I was on my way up or on my way down.”

The third one responded, “Well, ladies, I’m glad I don’t have that problem, knock on wood,” as she rapped her knuckles on the table and then said, “That must be the door, I’ll get it!”

Autumn Calm

The light coming in my windows is
Diffused, calm.
Not the exciting yellow of summer
Nor yet the cold grey of winter.
But gentle;
Allowing me to do my tasks at leisure —
No rush, no hurry…
The flowers are patient
The trees beginning to change.
I write my book with determination
Fear is Gone
Impatience laid to rest
Inspiration comes from falling leaves — red, brown, gold;
Mums beacon me to continue on my way —
No hurry, no rush…
The bright sun blues the sky
And I?
Shall finish my book by and by!
