Never Felt Better

A happy  90-year-old man walked into the doctor’s office. He was all smiles and laughed with the nurses and staff, until they brought him into the doctor’s.
The doctor examined him and told him he should start eating better, because his health was not in that great a shape.
The old man is surprised, he said to his doctor, “I’ve never felt better. I have an 18-year old bride who is pregnant with my child. What do you think about that?”
The doctor considered his question for a minute and then said, “I have an elderly friend who is a hunter and never misses a season. One day when he was going out in a bit of a hurry, he accidentally picked up his umbrella instead of his gun. When he got to the Creek, he saw a rabbit sitting beside the stream. He raised his umbrella and went, ‘bang, bang’ and the rabbit fell dead. What do you think of that?”
The 90-year-old said, “I’d say somebody else killed that rabbit.”
The doctor smiled, “My point exactly.”

When you are in love,
Wonders happen.
But once you get married,
You Wonder, what happened.

Philosophy of marriage:
At the beginning, every wife treats her husband as GOD…
Later, somehow don’t know why….
alphabets get reversed..

Secret formula for married couples…
“Love One Another”
And if it doesn’t work, bring the last word to the
the middle….

A woman finds Aladdin’s magic lamp.
She starts rubbing it and a Genie comes out as usual.
The woman looks at the Genie and asks him to grant her the following wishes:
– I want my husband to have eyes only for me
– I want to be the only one in his life
– I want that when he gets up in the morning I’m the first thing he grabs and takes me everywhere he goes.”

The Genie turned THE LADY into a SAMSUNG GALAXY S5.

Very True!


A high-end mobile phone;

70% of the functions are useless.

 An expensive car;

70% of the speed is not needed.

 A luxurious villa;

70% of the space is not occupied.

 A whole wardrobe of clothes;

70% of it is not worn.

A whole life of earning;

70% is for other people to use.

So we must protect and make full use of our 30%.

Go for medical exam even if you are not sick;

Drink more water even if you are not thirsty;

Eat in moderation as everything else;

Let go even when you are faced with grave problems;

Give in even if you are in the right;

Be humble even though you are very powerful;

Be content even if you are not rich;

Regularly exercise even when you are very busy;

Find time for religion, it’s the balm for the soul.

Deathbed Instructions

Ramasamy is on his deathbed. He asked his nurse to be a witness to his will.
His wife, his daughter and two sons are at his bedside..all grieving😩😫…
“So”, he says to them:
“Lingam, I want you to take the houses in steven road ..”
“Saraswathy, take the apartments over in Bukit timah estate…”
“Jega, I want you to take the offices over in CBD Central….”
“Lulumali, my dear wife, please take all the residential buildings in tekka”..

The nurse is just so amazed and envy by all this, and as Ramasamy passes away, she says, “Mrs. Lulumali, your husband must have been such a hardworking and rich man to have accumulated all these wealth..for all of you…”

Lulumali replies,  “we do newspaper delivery  la!..


An intelligent wife is one who spends so much that her husband can’t afford another woman.

Cool message by a woman : Dear mother-in-law,
“don’t teach me how to handle my children, I’m living with one of yours and he needs a lot of improvement.”
A kid was beaten by his mom .
Dad came home and asked , What happened son?
Kid said : Can’t adjust with your wife anymore,I need my own.
In an African safari, a lion suddenly bounced on Bob’s wife.
Wife : Shoot him! Shoot him!
Santa : Yes, yes. I’m changing the battery in my camera..
What is the difference between mother and wife?
One woman brings you into this world crying and the other ensures you continue to do so.
Husband and wife are like 2 tires of a vehicle .
If one punctures, the vehicle can’t move further.
Moral : Always keep a spare tire….
Nobody teaches volcanoes to erupt, tsunamis to devastate, hurricanes to sway around & no one teaches how to choose a wife.
Natural disasters just happen.
Message of the year:-
Women live a better, longer and peaceful life..!!
Very simple…
A woman does not have a wife..!!!
