Forgiving Enemies

Toward the end of the Sunday service, the Minister asked, “How many of you have forgiven your enemies?”

80% held up their hands. The Minister then repeated his question. All responded this time, except one man, Walter Barnes.

“Mr Barnes, are you not willing to forgive your enemies?”

“I don’t have any,” he replied gruffly.

“Mr Barnes, that is very unusual. How old are you?”

“Ninety-eight,” he replied. The congregation stood up and clapped their hands.

“Oh, Mr Barnes, would you please come down in front and tell us all how a person can live ninety-eight years and not have an enemy in the world?”

The old golfer tottered down the aisle, stopped in front of the pulpit, turned around, faced the congregation, and said simply, “I outlived all them a-holes” – and he calmly returned to his seat.

    A loving couple both 60 yo walking on the beach come across a lamp which they rubbed freeing a genie that was so happy on his release that he granted both one wish.. The wife wished for a trip around the world to celebrate their wonderful life. The genie was pleased as was the wife and the wish was granted..The husband wished for a woman 30 years younger. The genie was angered but as promised honored the wish and made the husband 90 yo.
