Thursday Special ~ Can you hear me?

Three old guys are out walking.
First one says, ‘Windy, isn’t it?’
Second one says, ‘No, it’s Thursday!’
Third one says, ‘So am I. Let’s go get a beer..’


A man was telling his neighbour, ‘I just bought a new hearing aid. It cost me four thousand dollars, but it’s state of the art.. It’s perfect.’
‘Really,’ answered the neighbour . ‘What kind is it?’
‘Twelve thirty..


A little old man shuffled slowly into an ice cream parlour and pulled himself slowly, painfully, up onto a stool.. After catching his breath, he ordered a banana split.
The waitress asked kindly, ‘Crushed nuts?’
‘No,’ he replied, ‘Arthritis.’




I wonder if Frank can hear me say “Thank you, for these”!

    Love it, Grannymar. The first paragraph sounds like the type of conversation I tend to have by default, despite my hearing being 10/10.

    So many conversations with friends now are similar to the ones here. No one wants to admit it, but we all could use hearing aids. Too bad they are so expensive…

    Fortunately or unfortunately, depends on viewpoint. My hear aids are one of my reminders of my military service and therefore paid by the Veterans Administration. No war story, just exposure to loud noises without proper ear protection at a time when these protections were not considered important.

    In the US most insurance plans don’t cover hearing aids.

    Ursula – Do you go for that beer?

    Warren – I thought they were default settings for all men! *runs to hide behind the couch.

    Mercyn – I am inclined to blame modern technology for pulling our attention away from the real people in our space.

    Fossie – My irony can be very creased these days. Boom Boom!

    Warren – Alas back then, anyone wearing ear protection would have been considered wimps.
