Exercise for the over 60s
Started by: cordyline (3918)   Report abuse

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

My parents are going to be 63 and 68 and they do a lot of gardening. They walk quite a bit when they aren't watching granbabies

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"

My mate took being sent to Jail really badly

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!
