A Celebration of Donna's year as president
Jokes of the day:

Bill and his wife Blanche go to the state fair every year,  And every year Bill would say,  "Blanche, I'd like to ride in that helicopter"
 Blanche always replied,  "I know Bill, but that helicopter ride is fifty bucks,  And fifty bucks is fifty bucks!"
One year Bill and Blanche went to the fair, and Bill said,  "Blanche, I'm 85 years old.  If I don't ride that helicopter, I might never get another chance."
To this, Blanche replied,  "Bill that helicopter ride is fifty bucks, and fifty bucks is fifty bucks."
The pilot overheard the couple and said,  "Folks I'll make you a deal. I'll take the both of you for a ride.
If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and don't say a word I won't charge you a penny!  But if you say one word it's fifty dollars.” Bill and Blanche agreed and up they went. 
The pilot did all kinds of fancy maneuvers, but not a word was heard.  He did his daredevil tricks over and over again,  But still not a word...  When they landed, the pilot turned to Bill and said,  "By golly, I did everything I could to get you to yell out, but you didn't.  I'm impressed!"
Bill replied,  "Well, to tell you the truth I almost said something when Blanche fell out,  But you know,  Fifty bucks is fifty bucks!"

Three brothers age 92, 94 and 96 live in a house together.

imageOne night the 96 year old draws a bath, puts his foot in and pauses. He yells down the stairs, "Was I getting in or out of the bath?"
The 94 year old yells back, "I don't know, I'll come up and see." He starts up the stairs and pauses, then he yells, "Was I going up the stairs or coming down?"
The 92 year old was sitting at the kitchen table having coffee listening to his brothers. He shakes his head and says, "I sure hope I never get that forgetful." He knocks on wood for good luck. He then yells, "I'll come up and help both of you as soon as I see who's at the door."
