I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one. "

A Little Elderly Humor

An elderly man was going up to bed when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back door to go turn off the light, but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.

He phoned the police who asked "is someone in your house?"

He said "No, but some people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me."

Then the police dispatcher said "All patrols are busy. You should lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available."

George said "Okay."

He hung up the phone and counted to 30. Then he phoned the police again.

"Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I shot and killed them both, the dogs are eating them right now", then he hung up.

Within five minutes six police cars, a SWAT Team, helicopter, two fire trucks, a paramedic, and an ambulance showed up at the Phillips' residence, and caught the burglars red-handed.

One of the policemen said to George, "I thought you said that you'd shot them!"

George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"

Don't mess with older people.

Good thing this is only a joke, or else George would be in jail!

I wish I had read this joke and shared it before now. The son of our good friends was beat up a year ago and sustained a brain injury. He's been healing and reclaiming his life since then. Last weekend, he was walking a few blocks from home to the convenience store. He was jumped by two guys who tried to beat him up, but he fought back. While he had one in a headlock, the other kicked him repeatedly in the head. But his attempts to fight back must have scared them off. He then called 911 and it took 10 minutes for police to respond in this relatively small city. Ridiculous. I wish when he'd called the police, he could have done something similar to the man in this joke. Maybe then they would have responded sooner and caught the culprits.
