Today’s Chuckle

Two elderly women, Rose and Barb had been lifelong friends.  When it became clear that Rose was not going to live much longer, Barb made sure to visit her every day.  One day Barb said “Rose, we have always loved softball and even played on the same high school team.  So, I would like you to do me one favor.  When you get to Heaven, you must somehow let me know if they play women’s softball up there.”

Rose looked at Barb from her deathbed and said “Somehow I will let you know.

Shortly thereafter, Rose passed on.  A few night later, Barb was awakened by a blinding flash of white light and a voice calling her name.

“Who is it”she asked, sitting up straight in her bed.

“It’s me, Rose” the voice said.  “I’m up here in Heaven and I have some really good news and a little bad news.”

“Tell me the good news first” Barb said.

“The good news is that there’s softball up here and a lot of our old teammates who passed on before me are here.  Better still, we are all young, it’s always springtime, it never rains or snows, and we can play softball any time we want.”

“Oh, that is so wonderful” Barb gushed.  It’s better then I could ever have hoped for.  So, what’s the bad news?”

“You’re pitching next Tuesday”.

About oldmainer

I am a retired manager living in Southern Maine and a would be writer of poetry, narratives, short stories, and random opinions, and that's how Oldmainer was born. Recently, I decided to try an experiment. I added photography to the mix, using only a cheap cell phone with a limited camera and the editing software that came with it, and added the blog site Inklings at to showcase the results. So, feel free to use whatever you find interesting or worthy, but please honor the terms of my copyright when and if you do. They may not be much, but they are still a piece of me. I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.
