The soldier asked for a furlough so that he might get married. “How long have you known this girl,” the sergeant asked.
“A week.”
“Why, my lad, that’s not long enough. I suggest you wait a couple of months, and then, if you still want to get married I will approve the furlough.”
Two months later the soldier was back, reminding the sergeant of his promise.
“So you still want to get married? I didn’t think that a young man would stay interested in the same girl for a couple of months.”
“I know, sir. But this isn’t the same girl.”

Deciding to give his wife a pleasant surprise, the husband took home some flowers and a box of candy. “Hazel, you look tired,” he said to his wife. “Slip on your best outfit and lets go out to eat.”
Hazel bursts into tears. “It was bad enough to have the baby fall down the back steps and burn my hand in the kitchen,” she sobbed, “but to have you come home intoxicated is just too much!”

I wondered if I could get my husband to help me address Christmas cards, as I had so much to do. I arranged everything we needed, then hopefully pulled up a chair and said, “Come on, Dear, let’s get these out of the way.”
He glanced at the array on the table, turned away and went into the den, only to return moments later with a high stack of cards, stamped, sealed, and addressed.
“They’re last year’s,” he said. “I forgot to mail them. Now let’s go out to dinner and relax.”

A man bought a mousetrap. When he brought it home, he discovered that he had no cheese to bait it with. So he found a picture of some cheese and put the picture in the trap.
The next morning he went to the trap to see if it had caught anything. The picture of the cheese was gone. In its place was a picture of a mouse.
A businessman boarded a plane to find, sitting next to him, an elegant woman wearing the largest, most stunning diamond ring he had ever seen. He asked her about it.
“This is the Bexfield diamond,” she said. “It is beautiful, but there is a terrible curse that goes with it.”
“What’s the curse?” the man asked.
“Mr. Bexfield.”

Why was 2019 afraid of 2020?
Because today they got into a fight and 2021…

A man went to the doctor complaining of insomnia. The doctor gave him a thorough examination, found absolutely nothing physically wrong.
He told him, “Listen, if you ever expect to cure your insomnia, you just have to stop taking your troubles to bed with you.”
“I know,” said the man, “but I can’t. My wife refuses to sleep alone.”

Mr. Magic: I can turn this handkerchief into a flower.
Little Johnny: That’s nothing. I can walk down the street and turn into an alley.

The quarrel had reached a new height when the wife said to her spouse, “I wish I’d taken my mother’s advice and never married you.”
Hubby swung around, “Do you mean to tell me that your mother tried to stop you from marrying me?”
Wife nodded in the affirmative.
“Good heavens,” cried the husband, his voice filled with remorse. “How I’ve wronged that woman.”

A couple moved to the country after retirement. One mild winter, they had a bit of a problem with rodents in the garage. So they bought a sub-sonic mouse repellent, a plug-in type that emits some kind of sound that drives off mice. The husband was showing it to their neighbor and explaining that it was an animal repellent. He told her that it worked on everything from mice to elephants.
“Really!?” she said. “Mice to elephants, eh?” sounding a bit skeptical.
“Yes,” he replied, seriously. “We’ve had it here for a couple of weeks now, and we haven’t had a single elephant in the garage the whole time!”
