    RED SKELTON'S RECIPE :

    For those of you old enough to remember Red Skelton, I think you will enjoy this e-mail. For those of you not old enough you will see what you missed. Either way, his humor was always clean and he was a great entertainer. A re-run of great 'one liners from the man who was known for his clean humor. I hope you get a chuckle or two reading them once more.

    RED SKELTON'S RECIPE
    FOR THE PERFECT MARRIAGE



    1. Two times a week we go to a nice restaurant, have a
    little beverage, good food and companionship.
    She goes on Tuesdays, I go on Fridays.

    2. We also sleep in separate beds.
    Hers is in California , and mine is in Texas ..

    3. I take my wife everywhere,
    but she keeps finding her way back.

    4. I asked my wife where she wanted to go for our anniversary.
    "Somewhere I haven't been in a long time!" she said.
    So I suggested the kitchen.

    5. We always hold hands. If I let go, she shops.

    6. She has an electric blender, electric
    toaster and electric bread maker.
    She said "There are too many gadgets, and no place
    to sit down!" So I bought her an electric chair.

    7. My wife told me the car wasn't running well
    because there was water in the carburetor.
    I asked where the car was. She told me, "In the lake."

    8. She got a mud pack and looked great for two days.
    Then the mud fell off.

    9. She ran after the garbage truck, yelling, "Am I too late
    for the garbage?" The driver said, "No, jump in!".

    10. Remember: Marriage is the number one cause of divorce.

    11. I married Miss Right. I just didn't know her
    first name was 'Always'.

    12. I haven't spoken to my wife in 18 months.
    I don't like to interrupt her.

    13. The last fight was my fault though.
    My wife asked, "What's on the TV?"
    I said, "Dust!".

    Can't you just hear him say all of these?

    I love it. These were the good old days when humor
    didn't have to start with a four letter word.
    It was just clean and simple fun.
    And he always ended his programs with the words,

    "And May God Bless" with a big smile on his face.

    Yes, I am old enough to remember Red Skelton, one of the funniest men I have heard. He was great, seems all the really good ones die way too young.
    Thanks for posting this.

    Oh Boy, do I remember him. As I was reading these I pictured him telling each one and could even see his great smile. That was when comedy was good. Thanks for posting. :thumbup:

    He use to have Sunday dinner at my Grandmothers when my Mom was little - don't know the years, probaly late 40's early 50's. That was St. Louis, Mo. I remember watching him on TV when I was little too.

    I just read these out loud to my husband - we both got a good laugh. And yes, we both remember watching Red Skelton on TV. He was certainly one of a kind :)

    Thanks for the smiles -- I love the old commedians who could make us laugh without 4-letter words. I remember a gal on the old Mike Douglas show -- she did a routine about the sizing and putting on panty hose that had me in stitches (and not a cuss word in the whole thing).

    Thanks Barbara, Those sure were the good ol' days. My dad loved to watch Red, I always loved to watch it also, mainly because I loved to see my dad laugh. I miss them both.

    I used to love to watch the Red Skelton show...it's where I got my dog's name from..her name is Mabley named after Mom's Mabley, a female comedian that was also on his show.
