WHEN I'M 100, IF I LEAN A LITTLE, LET ME!


The family wheeled old George out on the lawn, in his wheelchair, where the activities for his 100th birthday were taking place. Old George had a mild stroke, couldn't speak very well, but he could write notes when he needed to communicate.

After a short time out on the lawn, old George started leaning off to the right, so some family members grabbed him, straightened him up, and stuffed pillows on his right.

A short time later, he started leaning off to his left, so again the family grabbed him and stuffed pillows on his left. Soon he started leaning forward, so the family members again grabbed him and then tied a pillowcase around his waist to hold him up.

His grandson, who arrived late, came up to old George and said, 'Hi, Poppaw, you're looking good! How are they treating you?



Old George took out his little notepad and slowly wrote a note to him...

'They won't let me fart.'
