Louie, a widower, and Rose, a widow, had known each other for several years and had become quite fond of each other.

Their closeness reached a new level when Louie bravely confided his true feelings for Rose. This happened during a community supper in the big activity center where the pair sat across from one another at a table.

“Will you marry me?” Louie asked Rose after a few admiring glances at Rose.

Rose replied after a few seconds: “Yes. Yes, I will.”

LOSS OF MEMORY

Both left the dinner feeling ecstatic. But the following morning, Louie could not remember what Rose’s reply to his marriage proposal was. “Did she say ‘yes’, or did she say ‘no’?” He was deeply troubled by his loss of memory.

With hesitation, he decided to call Rose. He told her that he could no longer remember things very well because of his age. He then started talking about the previous evening. He then anxiously asked: “When I asked if you would marry me, did you say ‘Yes’, or did you say ‘No’?”

Rose answered: “Why, I said, ‘Yes, yes I will’ and I meant it with all my heart.”

Louie was relieved. But he did not expect Rose’s succeeding statement.

She said: “I am so glad that you called because I couldn’t remember who had asked me.”

ANOTHER OLD AGE JOKE

This story calls to mind another funny joke. The story goes…

Two 90-year-olds met at a “widow and widow” party at a retirement home. After spending some time together, they realized that they were fated to fall in love.

After some time, the elderly couple decided to get married. On their honeymoon, they laid down next to each other.

The old man took the lady’s hand and held it tightly in his. The old lady also took his hand and did the same.

Minutes later, they both fell asleep. On the second night, the same thing occurred.

During their third night together, they once again laid down side by side. The old man took his wife’s hand once again and said to her, “Not tonight darling. I have a migraine.”
