A family takes their frail, elderly mother to a nursing home and leaves
her, hoping she will be well cared for. The next morning, the nurses bathe
her, feed her a tasty breakfast and set her in a chair at a window
overlooking a lovely flower garden. She seems OK, but after a while
she sloowwwly starts to tilt over sideways in her chair. Two attentive
nurses immediately rush up to catch her and straighten her up.Again she
seems OK, but after a while she slooowwly starts to tilt over to
her other side. The nurses rush back and once more bring her back
upright. This goes on all morning.Later, the family arrives to see how the
old woman is adjusting to her new home. "So Ma, how is it here? Are
they treating you all right?" "It's pretty nice," she replies.
"Except they won't let you fart."
"The World is so full of a number of
things. I' am sure we should all be as happy as Kings." Robert
