Comedy is the Cure!

Comedy is the Cure!

I have been giving comedy some thought lately and wondering how many of you do what I do and seek it out.  In need of a good laugh we choose funny movies, read funny books and even read the comics in the local paper.  Getting a chuckle or just a smile is good for the body and soul.

Remember when local papers were daily and the comics were like reading an ongoing comedy routine? Dagwood and Blondie always gave us something to laugh about!  These days the comics are still good for a chuckle (but sadly, not daily) but more often the laughter comes from a favorite TV show or Radio show. Does anyone else listen to “Wait, Wait, don’t tell me” on NPR?  Wherever you find it – laughter is good for you. 

Here are a couple things to give you a chuckle this week:

Q: Did you hear the one about the scientists who turned a dolphin invisible?

A: It took a lot of work, but nobody could see the porpoise.


Two elderly ladies had been friends for many decades. Over the years they had shared all kinds of activities and adventures. Lately, their activities had been limited to meeting a few times a week to play cards.

One day they were playing cards when one looked at the other and said, “Now don’t get mad at me. I know we’ve been friends for a long time,but I just can’t think of your name. I’ve thought and thought, but I can’t remember it. Please tell me what your name is.”

Her friend glared at her. For at least three minutes she just stared and glared at her. Finally she said, “How soon do you need to know ?


God, grant me the Senility
To forget the people
I never liked anyway,
The good fortune
To run into the ones I do,
And the eyesight
To tell the difference.

That’s it for the blog this week as it was busy, busy, busy here in the Stillwaters Office.  No Joke!

    I LOVE to laugh. I, too, love to listen to “wait, wait, don’t tell me” on Saturdays while I’m sewing. Love reading each of your blogs.
