** My 35-year old son and I had just finished our meal when I realized I’d left my wallet in my truck.  As I headed out the door, I told the waitress what had happened.  “But don’t worry, I said with a grin. “I’m leaving my son for collateral.”  She looked at him.  He winked at her. She turned back to me.  “What else you got?”

Morris, an 82 year old man, went to the doctor to get a physical. A few days later the doctor saw Morris walking down the street with a gorgeous woman on his arm. A couple days later the doctor spoke to Morris and said, “You’re really doing great, aren’t you?”

Just doing what you said Doc! Get a hot mama and be cherrful!” The doctor said, “I didn’t say that. What I said was; You’ve got a heart murmur. Be careful!”
