A couple years ago at the nursing home where Frau Grace’s father lived, they had a New Years Eve party. As I recall all the walkers were lined up in front of the door to the party hall. When they let the old folks in, old man Amico ( my father-in -law) cut in front of the line and beat everybody to the hor’s d’oeuvres. They turned the clock ahead three hours so that when it as nine o’clock, the chimes would strike midnight. It didn’t matter. Everybody grabbed his walker and the room was deserted by eight. Tonight Frau Grace and I watched a movie on tv. I fell asleep about eight-fifteen. It’s hell getting old. Here’s a a bunch of New Years gags from back when.
