A man was putting his five-year-old daughter to bed, and advised her to say her prayers:
"God bless, mommy, God bless daddy, God bless Grandma, and good-bye Grandpa."
Dad thought that last comment was peculiar, but he let it go.
However, early the next morning, the family received word that Grandpa had died of a stroke.
The next night, the man was putting his child to bed, and she prayed:
"God bless mommy, God bless daddy, and good-bye Grandma."
The very next day, the grandmother died suddenly of a heart attack. The family was in shock, but none more than daddy.
That night, the child prayed:
"God bless mommy, and good-bye daddy."
By now, daddy was convinced this kid had some conduit to the Great Beyond, and spent the next day in horror. He was at the office, watching the clock. For some reason feeling safer there, he stayed until midnight. Massively relieved, he came home.
His wife asked why he'd been so late. He told her it'd been the worse day of his life. She said, "You think YOU had a bad day?
This afternoon, the mailman dropped dead on our porch!"
An 80 year old man went to the doctor for a check-up and the doctor was amazed at what good shape the guy was in. The doctor asked, "To what do you attribute your good health?"
The old timer said, "I'm a biker and that's why I'm in such good shape. I'm up well before daylight on Sundays and out sliding around corners, "shootin" sand washes and riding up and down the steepest, wildest mountains I can find at the crack of dawn."
The doctor said, "Well, I'm sure that helps, but there's got to be more to it. How old was your dad when he died?" The old biker said, "Who said my dad's dead?"
The doctor said, "You mean you're 80 years old and your dad's still alive? How old is he?"
The old biker said, "He's 99 years old and, in fact, he went riding with me this Sunday, and that's why he's still alive... he's a biker too."
The doctor said, "Well, that's great, but I'm sure there's more to it. How about your dad's dad? How old was he when he died?"
The old biker said, "Who said my grandpa's dead?"
The doctor said, "You mean you're 80 years old and your grandfather's still living! How old is he?"
The old biker replied, "He's 117 years old."
The doctor was getting frustrated at this point and said, "I guess he went riding with you this Sunday too?"
The old timer said, "No... Grandpa couldn't go this week because he got married."
The Doctor said in amazement, "Got married!! Good Lord!!! Why would a 117-year-old guy want to get married?"
To this old biker smiled and answered,
"Who said he wanted to?"
