NATIVITY OF JOHN THE BAPTIST
Two retirees were talking about their failing memories. One of them said, “I can’t remember what day it is, much less where I left my keys.” His friend, always an optimist, said, “Well, look at the bright side. This year we’ll be old enough to hide our own Easter eggs.”
