SECRETS TO A LONG LIFE
Andy, an 80-year-old Scotsman, went to the doctor for a check-up.
The doctor was amazed at what good shape he was in and asked: 'How do you stay in such great physical condition?'
'I am Scottish and I am a golfer,' said Andy: 'and that is why I am in such good shape. I am up well before daylight and out golfing up and down the fairways. I have a wee glass of whisky, and that's it.'
'Well,' said the doctor, 'I am sure that helps, but there has to be more to it. How old was your Dad when he died?'
'Who said my Dad died?'
The doctor was amazed. 'You mean you are 84 years old and your Dad is still alive. How old is he?'
He is 105 years old,' said old Andy. 'In fact he golfed wi' me this mornin', and then we went to the topless beach for a walk and had anither wee dram and that is why he is still alive. He is a Scot and he is a golfer, too.'
'Well,' the doctor said, 'that is great, but I am sure there is more to it than that. How about your Dad's Dad? How old was he when he died?'
'Who said my Grandad is dead?'
Stunned, the doctor asked, 'You mean you are 84 years old and your grandfather is still living! Incredible, how old is he?'
'He is 127 years old,' said the old Scottish golfer
The doctor was getting frustrated at this point: 'So, I guess he went golfing with you this morning too?'
'No. Grandad could nae go this mornin' because he is getting married today.'
At this point the doctor was close to losing it. 'Getting married!! Why would a 127 year-old bloke want to get married?'
'Who said he wanted to?'
