Laughter is the best medicine so the saying goes. When you laugh, your blood pressure and heart rate rise briefly then drop below their original levels. It even increases white blood cells which fight disease. So go ahead and laugh. Here is a story which I got in the mail today which really made me laugh.

Don’t Mess Up With This Grandma

An elderly Florida lady did her shopping and, upon returning to her car, found four males in her vehicle. She dropped her shopping bags and drew her handgun, proceeding to scream at the top of her voice, "I have a gun, and I know how to use it! Get out of the car!" The four men didn't wait for a second invitation. They got out and ran like mad. The lady, somewhat shaken, then proceeded to load her shopping bags into the back of the car and got into the driver's seat. She was so shaken that she could not get her key into the ignition. She tried and tried, and then it dawned on her why. A few minutes later, she found her own car parked four or five spaces farther down. She loaded her bags into the car and drove to the police station. The sergeant to whom she told the story couldn't stop laughing. He pointed to the other end of the counter, where four pale men were reporting a car jacking by a mad, elderly woman described as white, less than five feet tall, glasses, curly white hair, and carrying a large hand gun. No charges were filed. If you're going to have a Senior Moment, make it a memorable one!
