Ruth Bryant goes to jail

Ruth Bryant goes to jail

Would you be happy to live to 100? Ruth Bryant was unfulfilled. She had a bucket list and wanted to fulfill by age 100. Ruth’s centennial birthday celebrations landed her in jail. One of the items on her bucket list WAS getting arrested and heading to prison, according to local news channel WRAL. To help Ruth cross one more life experience off her list, deputies came marching into Cambridge Hills nursing home and got her. The charges against Bryant, were for indecent exposure at a fire department. Bryant even attempting to jokingly “resist” arrest by kicking her foot as she got into the police car waiting outside the assisted living facility. “Don’t kick me, I got a bad knee,” said one deputy, to which she replied: “I got two bad knees.” Put in handcuffs and driven to jail, Bryant was given one free phone call, a mug shot, and an orange jail outfit. Bryant’s own daughter Marian Oakley was surprised at the extent of this whole gag, “I know she’s 100, but I didn’t know… they’d be going this far.”


Buckets of Laughs

I’ve compiled my bucket list.
4 drumsticks, 4 thighs, original recipe, 2 individual mashed potatoes with gravy, and 2 biscuits.

There once was a man from Pawtucket…
Who kept all his cash in a bucket…
His daughter, named Nan…
Ran off with a man…
And as for the bucket – Nantucket!

The average age of people living in our military retirement community is 85. Recently, a neighbor turned 100, and a big birthday party was thrown. Even his son turned up. “How old are you?” a tenant asked. “I’m 81 years old,” he answered. The tenant shook her head. “They sure grow up fast, don’t they?”

Just as she was celebrating her 80th birthday, our friend received a jury-duty notice. She called the clerk’s office to remind them that she was exempt because of her age.
“You need to come in and fill out the exemption forms,” the clerk said.
“But I filled them out last year,” she replied.
“You have to fill them out every year.”
“Why? Do you think I’m getting younger?”
