Nice one from TK

Getting Married Jack, age 92, and Gill, age 89,
are all excited about their decision to get married.
They go for a stroll to discuss the wedding and
on the way they pass a chemist shop and Jack
suggests they go in. 
Jack addresses the man behind the counter:

"Are you the owner?" 
The pharmacist answers, "Yes."        
Jack: "We're about to get married.

Do you sell heart medication?" 
Pharmacist: "Of course we do."        
Jack: "How about medicine for circulation?"        
Pharmacist: "All kinds" 
Jack: "Medicine for rheumatism?" 
Pharmacist: "Definitely." 
Jack: "How about suppositories?" 
Pharmacist: "Yes"        
Jack: "Medicine for memory problems, arthritis, and Alzheimer's?" 
Pharmacist: "Yes, a large variety. The works."        
Jack: "What about vitamins, sleeping pills, antidotes for Parkinson's disease?"
Pharmacist: "Absolutely."        
Jack: "Everything for heartburn and indigestion?"  
Pharmacist: "We do..." 
Jack: "You sell wheelchairs and walkers and canes?" 
Pharmacist: "All speeds and sizes." 
Jack: "Adult incontinence pants?"        
Pharmacist: "Yes." 
Jack: "Then we'd like to use this store for our wedding present’s list..."

I wonder if maybe Jack & Gill were confusing "up the hill" with "over the hill"?

Coffee clean-up will now commence, after which I will hang my keyboard out to dry.

And Jack Sprat probably used a butcher's shop.

Could be... and I hereby absolve myself and this blog from all responsibility for your keyboard. ;)

More than likely, Cro.
