Huh? You have a problem with Time Lords? Or is this age discrimination?

You won't get out of this by making us laugh and playing the age card; You knew I was 106 and you took advantage of me! You varmint, do not pretend to be in another universe, you are observed at Als Topless Pool & Shuffleboard every Tuesday night.

Only 106? I haven’t scored that young since the first incarnation of Romana!

Sure, joke away. I and my legal representatives will hound you from era to era and make you wish you had never been reborn.

He's out! Really out, not like that time down in the states where they got him back from Als Topless after three days. Cousin Eugene is officially a free man and Aunt Marlene has got all his probation appointments up on the fridge and we have all signed up for a date to drive him to the probation office. It is only three blocks away but Aunt Marlene says Better Safe than Sorry.

And he has got a job! His friend Conrad from Coleman has got his wife Barbara to hire him, and he will get to be in an atmosphere of Philosophy and they will give him a free uniform. And if Conrad has to lay him off, because technically they should not associate with each other, and they let Conrad back into Canada, then he will only get laid off until Conrad goes away out of Canada again. And that is the only way he could get laid off, unless he makes Barbara really mad, and she will hire him back again without him even having to apply again and he can keep his uniform that whole time.

That Conrad really is a prince, well he is a duke or something in England, he has done so much for Eugene talking to him and talking and talking, Eug says he can talk all night without stopping. The other inmates called him names like Lord Tubby and Royal Pain and other things I cannot repeat, but he is a real Lord and did not mind. He even laughed that some lady had called him "the Biggest Bore Unhung", he was proud of that because the lady was the daughter of John winston Lennon churchill. I looked that up Eugene says we should look things up and not just ask somebody.

One thing, Eugene is not an Objectivist anymore because Sir Conrad and Princess Barbara are not, they are Classical Liberals so he has converted.

Hope nobody minds.

I will park this here, in the old folks home - Peter

Being Grandparents is tricky – How children perceive their Grandparents . . .

1. She was in the bathroom, putting on her makeup, under the watchful eyes of her young granddaughter, as she'd done many times before. After she applied her lipstick and started to leave, the little one said, "But Grandma, you forgot to kiss the toilet paper good-bye!" I will probably never put lipstick on again without thinking about kissing the toilet paper good-bye....

2. My young grandson called the other day to wish me Happy Birthday. He asked me how old I was, and I told him, 80. My grandson was quiet for a moment, and then he asked, "Did you start at 1?"

3. After putting her grandchildren to bed, a grandmother changed into old slacks and a droopy blouse and proceeded to wash her hair. As she heard the children getting more and more rambunctious, her patience grew thin. Finally, she threw a towel around her head and stormed into their room, putting them back to bed with stern warnings. As she left the room, she heard the three-year-old say with a trembling voice, "Who was THAT?"

4. A grandmother was telling her little granddaughter what her own childhood was like. "We used to skate outside on a pond. I had a swing made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard. We rode our pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods."The little girl was wide-eyed, taking this all in. At last she said, "I sure wish I'd gotten to know you sooner!"

5. My grandson was visiting one day when he asked, "Grandma, do you know how you and God are alike?" I mentally polished my halo and I said, "No, how are we alike?'' "You're both old," he replied.

6. A little girl was diligently pounding away on her grandfather's word processor. She told him she was writing a story. "What's it about?" he asked. "I don't know," she replied. "I can't read."

7. I didn't know if my granddaughter had learned her colors yet, so I decided to test her. I would point out something and ask what color it was. She would tell me and was always correct. It was fun for me, so I continued. At last, she headed for the door, saying, "Grandma, I think you should try to figure out some of these colors yourself!"

8. When my grandson Billy and I entered our vacation cabin, we kept the lights off until we were inside to keep from attracting pesky insects. Still, a few fireflies followed us in. Noticing them before I did, Billy whispered, "It's no use Grandpa. Now the mosquitoes are coming after us with flashlights."

9. When my grandson asked me how old I was, I teasingly replied, "I'm not sure." "Look in your underwear, Grandpa," he advised "Mine says I'm 4 to 6."

10. A second grader came home from school and said to her grandmother, "Grandma, guess what? We learned how to make babies today." The grandmother, more than a little surprised, tried to keep her cool. "That's interesting." she said.. "How do you make babies?"

"It's simple," replied the girl. "You just change 'y' to 'i' and add 'es'."

11. Children's Logic: "Give me a sentence about a public servant," said a teacher. The small boy wrote: "The fireman came down the ladder pregnant." The teacher took the lad aside to correct him. "Don't you know what pregnant means?" she asked. "Sure," said the young boy confidently. 'It means carrying a child."

12. A grandfather was delivering his grandchildren to their home one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of the fire truck was a Dalmatian dog. The children started discussing the dog's duties. "They use him to keep crowds back," said one child. "No," said another. "He's just for good luck." A third child brought the argument to a close. "They use the dogs," she said firmly, "to find the fire hydrants."

13. A 6-year-old was asked where his grandma lived. "Oh," he said, "she lives at the airport, and when we want her, we just go get her. Then, when we're done having her visit, we take her back to the airport."

14. Grandpa is the smartest man on earth! He teaches me good things, but I don't get to see him enough to get as smart as him!

15. My Grandparents are funny, when they bend over, you hear gas leaks and they blame their dog.

And not that I mind, but poor Eugene is only 28, he has just been misunderstood, and Aunt Marlene won't claim a day over 60. And Lady Black refers to herself as geriatric but would highly resent anyone else doing so. So why did you choose this thread?

As a geriatric and grandmother myself.I enjoyed the anecdotes.

I don't know. I got them from my cousin Linda’s husband Don. Their last name is Rice. They are Jewish.

How odd.

My niece has the name Penner. They are Italian. I guess those names are Americanized. Does that help?

No! they are “Italian Penners.” Put a vowel at the end. Penni. Pennerati. Rossi. Romano. Rizzo. Lombardi. Mancini. Columbo. They did not come to Ryker’s Island via England or Ireland.

Now my Costello relatives are Black Irish, which does not mean African black, but Tyrone Power dark, handsome, and brooding.

Well Eugene has started his new job. he says it is challenging and he gets to work in beautiful surroundings as it is the Lord Black mansion. Mostly he sees the beautiful yard because Lady B (as she invited him to call her in her aristocratic but humorous manner) has 17 dogs and it is one of his tasks to walk them, after he has ironed the newspaper for her to read.

The uniform is very classy but it does not fit him too well. The person who had the job before him was a woman, as the chauffeur mentioned to Eugene. Aunt Marlene said she could let out the seams on it, but Eugene thinks Lady B might notice that her property had been tampered with, Classical liberals are very particular about private property. He thinks it is better not to make waves when he is new on the job. He has matured so much! They told him the uniform is called "livery" but he jokes to us in good natured fashion when letting off steam, at the end of a work day it feels more like deadery.
