Sarah, the new bride, went crying to her mother.

"What's troubling you?" asked her concerned mother.

"Momma, I can't get Dave to do anything. I want him to fix up the house, and he keeps putting it off." Sarah explained.

"Honey," her mother replied, "after being married to your father for twenty six years, I've found that there's only one way to get him to do anything."

"What way is that?" asked Sarah, "I want to know so that I can try it out on Dave."

"Well," said her mother, "the way to get him to do anything is to tell him he's too old."
