Exercise for the over 60s
Started by: cordyline (4146)   Report abuse
EXERCISE FOR PEOPLE OVER 60

1. Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side.

2. With a 5-lb potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute, and then relax.

3. Each day you'll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer. After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato bags.
4. Then try 50-lb potato bags and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute. (I'm at this level.)

5. After you feel confident at that level, place one potato in each bag

Doo yoo know the difference between a good spud and a crap spud ????

Well a good spud as more cellulose material in it and crap spuds have more water in them and how you tell the difference is to feel the spud

place the spud in the palm of your hand and give it a good squeeze, it you can feel it give slightly (squishes) them it is full of water and will cook and taste awful, if when you squeeze the spud and it is firm and hard and does not flex, then it will be a good spud

I asked the apprentice to get me a newspaper

The geeky kid said 'Don't be silly, you don't need a newspaper in these modern times -- here use my I-pad'

That Wasp never knew what hit it !

Nicola Sturgeon, Donald Trump, and Vladimir Putin all die and go to hell.

While there they spy a red phone and ask what it's for.

The Devil tells them it is for calling back to Earth.

Putin calls Russia and talks for 5 minutes. When he finishes the devil informs him that the cost is a million dollars, so Putin writes him a cheque.

Next Donald Trump calls the USA and talks for 30 minutes. When he's finished the devil tells him that the cost is 6 million dollars, and Trump writes him a cheque.

Finally Nicola Sturgeon gets her turn and calls Scotland for 4 hours.

When she's finished, the devil informs her that there is no charge, and feel free to call Scotland anytime.

Putin and Trump go ballistic and ask the devil why Nicola Sturgeon got to call Scotland free.

The devil replies, "Since she became First Minister of Scotland, the Country has gone to hell, so it's a local call"

He refused all offers of food and drink, spat and swore at anyone who came near him

He smeared the walls with his porridge

After that, we never played Monopoly again!

A British General had sent some of his men off to fight for their country in the Falkland Island Crisis.

Upon returning to England from the South American island, three soldiers that had distinguished themselves in battle were summoned to the General’s office

“Since we weren’t actually at war” the General began “I can’t give out any medals

We did, however, want to let each of you know your efforts were appreciated.
What we’ve decided to do is to let each of you choose two points on your body.

You will be given two pounds sterling for each inch of distance between those parts.

We’ll start on the left, boys, so what’ll it be?”

Soldier 1: “The tip of me head to me toes, sahr!”
General: “Very good son, that’s 70 inches which comes to 140 pounds”

Soldier 2: “The tip of the finger on one outstretched hand to the tip of the other, sir!”
General: “Even better son, that’s 72 inches which comes to 144 pounds”


Soldier 3: “The palm of me hand to the tip of me left little finger, sahr!”
General: “That’s a strange but fair request, son!

As the general begins the measurement: “What!
Son, where is your left little finger?”

Soldier 3: “Falkland Island, sahr!”

I was saddened when my friend, a local blacksmith died

But perked up when I heard that I was included in his will.

I found that he had left me his dog.

I took it home and he immediately made a bolt for the door.

An elderly widower walks into an upscale cocktail lounge.

He is in his mid-eighties, very well-dressed, hair well-groomed,great looking suit, flower in his lapel and smelling slightly of an expensive after shave. He presents a very nice image.

Seated at the bar is a classy looking lady in her mid-seventies.

The sharp old gentleman walks over and sits alongside her. He orders a drink and takes a sip. He slowly turns to the lady and says:

"So, tell me..... do I come here often?"

I went to visit my Jewish mate yesterday

I found him stripping the wallpaper off the walls.

I said "Doing a bit of renovating then, are you?"

He said "No, we're moving house"

Frank always looked on the bright side...He would constantly irritate his friends with his eternal optimism.

No matter how horrible the circumstances, he would always reply, "It could have been worse"

To cure him of his annoying habit, his friends decided to invent a situation so completely bad, so terrible, that even Frank could find no hope in it.

On the golf course one day, one of them said, "Frank, did you hear about Tom?"

He came home last night, found his wife in bed with another man, shot them both and then turned the gun on himself!"

"That's awful" said Frank "But it could have been worse".....

"How in the hell" asked his bewildered friend "Could it have been worse?"

"Well" replied Frank

"If it happened the night before, I'd be dead now!"
