    How often do you get jokes in your email in-box and really laugh?

    I've sure gotten old! I've had two bypass surgeries, a hip replacement,
    New knees, fought prostate cancer and diabetes. I'm half blind,
    Can't hear anything quieter than a jet engine,
    Take 40 different medications that
    Make me dizzy, winded, and subject to blackouts.
    Have bouts with dementia ..
    Have poor circulation;
    Hardly feel my hands and feet anymore.
    Can't remember if I'm 89 or 98.
    Have lost all my friends. But, thank God,
    I still have my driver's license.

    As someone else asked on the feed, do you laugh or cry when you get, "Greetings my dear, I saw your beautiful photo..."

    I used to get jokes upon jokes sent to me via email on a daily basis. Thank goodness they have slowed down a bit as most were repetitive ones. But to answer your question of how often I actually laugh at them, I would have to say about once a week.

    Maybe 1 out of 100. I ask my friends not to send me them... but some still do. I find them a waste of time. When I need a good laugh, I search the internet for jokes.

    Quite frequently.  I have lots of friends and they send me jokes and I do the same.  I believe that laughter is good for the soul.  Life is too short to live it with a frown on your face.  Laughter is the best medicine for the soul.

    Not so often, but usually those jokes comes from friends who are hilarious and good at making funny graphics.
