A Christmas story.

Every Christmas I take a busload of oldies from our local nursing homes around to see the local Christmas lights.
They had a great time again this year.
When we were unloading back at the last home one little old lady got helped off the bus and when they gave her walker to her she just stood there. After a few minutes they told here she could go down to her room. She just stood there leaning on here walker while they unloaded the bus.
They told here again after a couple of minutes. She just stood there. (it takes a long time to get nursing home patients off the bus).
The third time they told her, she said she wasn't going anywhere until she had her goodnight kiss.
A couple of minutes later an old bloke got off the bus and got his walker. Then he shuffled over and gave her a smooch and they shuffled off happily together.
Merry Christmas.

They love the bus trip. We sat by the beach in the bus for 20 minutes while the sun went down and they all ate their goody bag then off we went.
I'm just paying it back to many of them. A lot of them were customers in my butcher shop 20 - 25 years ago.
A bloke at work used to take the oldies in the nursing home out in home's mini bus. He said one old couple were always holding hands and sneaking a kiss on the bus. The nursing home people always did their best to stop them. My mate asked why once. The explaination was they were both married to other people, and their partners were still in their homes.
You're never too old for love, or a bit on the side, apparently.
