Short Retirement Jokes: "Retirement Benefit: Your secrets are safe with your friends. They can't remember them either."

Which Restaurant?

A retired couple had dinner at their friends’ house, and after eating, the wives left the table and went to the kitchen.

The two men were talking and one said, “We've been going to a new restaurant and it’s really great. I’d recommend it very highly.”

The other man asked, “What’s the name of the place?”

The first man thought awhile and finally said, “What are those flowers you send a woman you love? The ones with red petals and thorns?”

“You must mean roses,” he replied.

“That’s it,” said the man. He yelled to his wife, “Rose, what’s the name of the new restaurant we like?”

Retirement Jokes:
False Alarm

A retired couple were lying in bed. She was dozing on her stomach, he was on his side next to her. Suddenly the wife felt her husband’s hand moving around her body in erotic ways she hadn’t felt for many months. He began at her neck, then moved gently around her shoulders. From there he felt along the sides of her back, then down across her buttocks. He continued along the inner parts of her thighs, but suddenly stopped and then rolled over.

Feeling quite aroused, she asked "Why did you stop?"

He said, "I found the remote.”

Staying Relevant

Getting older can mean doubting our ability to make a difference in the world. We should therefore take heart and be inspired by the remarkable achievements of other retirees who have found ways to take on challenges that point the way forward for the rest of us.

Malcolm Schleckermann is one of those people. In his own words:  
"I often get asked how I spend my time in retirement. Having a background in chemical engineering turned out to be really helpful. One of my favorite activities and and proudest accomplishments is converting pale ale, merlot, and bourbon into urine. I do it every day and it’s really fun."

Malcolm is an inspiration to all who know him.
