Lighten up Mondays.

Posted on Updated on

One evening, a family brought their frail, elderly mother to a nursing home and left her, knowing that after all the research they did to find a great place, she would be well cared for.

The next morning, the nurses bathed her, fed her a tasty breakfast of an omelet, sausages, and pancakes, and set her in a chair at a window overlooking a lovely flower garden.

She seemed okay, but after a while, she slowly started to lean over sideways in her chair.  Two very attentive nurses immediately rushed to her side to catch her and straighten her up.  Again, she seemed okay but after a while, she started to tilt to the other side.  The nurses rushed back, and once more moved her upright.  This went on all morning.

Later the family arrived to see how their mother was adjusting to her new home.

“So Ma, how is it here?  Are they treating you alright?”

“It’s pretty nice here,” she replied, “except they won’t let me fart!”
