From the Smith County Pioneer

A retired man who volunteers to entertain patients at a nursing home, took his portable keyboard along. He told some jokes and played the keyboard and sang.
When he was finished, he said in farewell, "I hope you get better."
One elderly guy said, "I hope you get better too"

A lady was taking a bath when she heard a knock on the door. "Can I come in", the male voice said. "Who is it?", the lady asks. It's the blind man. Thinking he is blind, she goes to the door without getting a towel. When he comes in he is a little taken back but says, "Where do you want me to install the blinds?"
