    Two true famous senior moments:

    British actress Dame Sybil Thorndike found herself at a reception after touring Welsh mining towns.

    She was introduced to the assembly as the guest of honor by a rather senile vicar who said, ' I am delighted to have the pleasure of welcoming to our town Dame Sybil, a famous member of the oldest profession in the world.'

    American actor W. C Fields, rather late in life, was reading a bible one day when a fellow actor asked him why he was looking at it so intently.

    "Looking for loopholes, my boy"

    A group of Americans was travelling on a bus tour through France and were in the Loire Valley quite near to the town of Sancerre. They stopped at the nearby village of Chavignol and visited a cheese farm where the world famous 'Crottin de Chavignol' goat's cheese is made; their guide, who was the farmer's wife, led them through a process of cheese making, explaining how goat's milk was used.

    Madame showed the group a picturesque hillside where many goats were grazing. These, she explained, were the older goats put out to pasture when they no longer produced. Madame then asked, turning to the group, 'What do you do in the USA with your old goats that aren't producing?'

    One spry and very quick elderly gentleman answered, 'They send us on bus tours to Europe.'

    What about grumpy old women? Is this topic a case of gender equality? Or is it a bit like mass murders, women are severely under-represented? This anecdote suggests that women deserve their own category, vindictive old women.

    'Cash, check or charge?' I asked, after folding items the woman wished to purchase. As she fumbled for her wallet, I noticed a remote control for a television set in her purse. 'So, do you always carry your TV remote?' I asked.

    'No,' she replied, 'but my husband refused to come shopping with me, and I figured this was the most evil thing I could do to him legally.'

    In actual life I am a grumpy old bag.
