    Well, my mother-in-laws' cardiologist was correct!

    He said his patients who were farmers are healthy and have strong hearts!

    Nurses work hard and some continue working after 65. Like me.
    But shift work is not good. I worked full time nights for 18 years.

    There was this one Old Farmer who was awakened late one night by a knocking on his door. The Old Farmer answered the door, and sure enough, there was the old cliche Travelling Salesman standing there. The Travelling Salesman said his car had broken down and asked if he could stay the night.
    "Very well", the Old Farmer said, "But you'll hafta sleep with my Son."
    The Travelling Salesman replied, "I'm sorry. I must be in the wrong joke."

    Hey! Here's another tip if you want to live well into your golden years: Don't mix up your OTC meds! I read where one endentulous fellow mixed up his Polygrip with his Preparation H. Now he's talking like an a--hole! There was an advantage to his mistake, however. He said that his gums no longer were painful, swollen, or itchy.
