Our Mother was always ready with a joke, as she carried them on scraps of paper in her purse, and these come from her purse in fact. At home she always had her joke books near her where she sat by the phone at her kitchen table. If she felt a need to lighten things up a bit, she'd trot out her jokes. Her great-grandsons were often recipients of her jokes, as her frequent cards and letters to them always contained jokes. These humorous moments sharpened her wits, and kept her in balance (didn't take life or herself too seriously!) and I myself hardly ever came up with an answer to these "simple jokes."--Ed.
