    FANTASTIC! These are hilarious (and I do enjoy a good laugh) Thanks for sharing these. I may have read them before (?), but forgetfulness can be a side benefit to growing older sometimes.

    Yogi Berra has a book that has lots of these gems, but he said them all.. On the book, Yogi was quoted “I never said half the things I said.”

  3. At least he wondered whether he’d be an aunt or uncle.
    In Tennessee, he’d wonder whether he was the mother or the father.
