Slide into 2011 with a laugh!

The year 2010 has come to an end. In the recent past, I have brought you not so good news. To compensate for that, “Getting Old” should bring at least a smile to your face. We all hope that 2011 will be a better year and hopefully bring peace in the world.
We should also spare a thought for the many flood victims in Central Queensland Australia, where thousands of people have become homeless due to their homes being flooded - those people have really nothing to laugh about.

I would like to encourage everybody who is high and dry to donate generously to the Red Cross flood appeal - if you can. So far more than 8000 people had been evacuated from their homes, and it was stated in the news today that the area flooded in Queensland is bigger than France and Germany combined - a disaster of mammoth proportion.

I wish all my blog visitors a happy and prosperous New Year, but most of all good health, and enjoy the following joke. Werner

Getting Old.
Two medical students were walking along the street when they saw an old man walking with his legs spread apart. He was stiff-legged and walking slowly.

One student said to his friend: "I'm sure that poor old man has the Peltry Syndrome. Those people walk just like that."

The other student says: "No, I don't think so. The old man surely has the Zovitzki Syndrome. He walks slowly and his legs are apart, just as we learned in class."

Since they couldn't agree they decided to ask the old man. They approached him and one of the students said to him, "We're medical students and couldn't help, but notice the way you walk, but we couldn't agree on the syndrome you might have. Could you tell us what it is?"

The old man said, "I'll tell you, but first you tell me what you two fine medical students think."

The first student said, "I think it's the Peltry Syndrome."
The old man said, "You thought - but you are wrong."

The other student said, "I think you have Zovitzki Syndrome."

The old man said, "You thought - but you are wrong."

So they asked him, "Well, old timer, what do you have?"

The old man said, "I thought it was WIND - but I was wro
ng, too!"
