I "Hoveround" Bars So I Called The Scooter Store

After watching a commercial from the Scooter Store and answering the questions posed in the ad, I became interested in acquiring one. One of the questions was "Have you fallen in the last 12 months?" This was a bit unclear as I wasn't sure if they meant inside or outside of the bar.

Another question they asked was do you have difficulty getting to the bathroom. Once again, I felt the question was not clear. If the bathroom is ten feet away and I'm on my first Johnnie Walker Black, then the answer is no. If I'm on my fifth Johnnie Walker Black and I'm using the bar stool as a walker, then the answer is yes.

According to the ad, I can probably get the Scooter free. I'm thinking if I add GPS to the Scooter, it theoretically resolves the conflict of drinking and driving. I mean other than brushing a few mailboxes placed too near the sidewalk, I'm home.

I placed a call to the 800 number to inquire further about the scooter but the sales associate on the other line kept accidentally hanging up. I'll keep you abreast of my progress.

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: Two elderly couples were enjoying friendly conversation when one of the men asked the other, "Fred, how was the memory clinic you went to last month?" Fred replied, "Outstanding. They taught us all the latest psychological techniques - visualization, association - it made a huge difference for me." His friend says, "That's great! What was the name of the clinic?" Fred went blank.

Fred thought and thought, but couldn't remember. Then a smile broke across his face and he asked, "What do you call that red flower with the long stem and thorns?" His friend said, "You mean a rose?" Fred said, "Yes, that's it!" He turned to his wife and said, "Rose, what was the name of that clinic?"

An older woman went to her doctor for a follow-up visit after the doctor had prescribed testosterone. She was a little worried about some of the side effects she was experiencing. She said, "Doctor, the hormones you've been giving me have really helped, but I'm afraid that you're giving me too much. I've started growing hair in places that I've never grown hair before."

The doctor reassured her, "A little hair growth is a perfectly normal side effect of testosterone. Just where has this hair appeared?" The woman replied, "On my balls, which is something else I want to talk to you about."

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: A girl goes into the doctor's office for a checkup. As she takes off her blouse, he notices a red "H" on her chest.

A couple of days later, another girl comes in for a checkup. As she takes off her blouse, he notices a blue "Y" on her chest. The doctor asks, "How did you get that mark on your chest?" The girl replies, "Oh, my boyfriend went to Yale and he's so proud of it that he never takes off his Yale sweatshirt, even when we make love."

A big shot executive had to spend a couple of days in the hospital. He was a royal pain to the nurses because he bossed them around just like he did his staff. None of the hospital staff wanted to have anything to do with him. The head nurse was the only one who could stand up to him. She came into his room and announced, "I have to take your temperature."

After complaining for several minutes, he finally settled down, crossed his arms and opened his mouth. The nurse said, "No, I'm sorry, but for this reading, I can't use an oral thermometer." This started another round of complaining, but eventually he rolled over and bared his behind. After feeling the nurse insert the thermometer, he heard her announce, "I have to get something. Now you stay like that until I get back!"

She leaves the door to his room open on her way out. He curses under his breath as he hears people walking past his door, laughing. After a half hour, the man's doctor comes into the room. "What's going on here?" asked the doctor. Angrily, the man answers, "What's the matter, Doc? Haven't you ever seen someone having their temperature taken?" After a pause, the doctor confesses, "Not with a carnation."

Hey man I hope you get the buggy with a side car, curb feelers and fender skirts. Maybe forget the fender part.

I had that windshield urge on 301 thru Waldo today, but then I started paying attention to the love bugs and forgot.
Take care ('Sure is Hot up here in Wildwood')

That is some slick buggie you got there. It should solve all your problems getting home. Tell me if they really give it to you free. I may apply.
