    Oy.

    I married my first wife one year before my mother married her second husband.

    Got it right the first time, 35 years ago. But my father remarried at 75, after my mother died, and had nine good years with my stepmother. Only thing he didn't like was people saying, "You're 75 and you're getting married? How cuuuuute."

    I remarried at 42 and that's it for me. I hope to stay married for the rest of my life, but if for any reason I ever find myself single again, I'll stay that way.

    Be Careful not to marry a widow when you re-marry.

    A man walks out to the street and catches a taxi just going by. He gets into the taxi, and the cabbie says, 'Perfect timing. You're just like Frank.'

    Passenger: 'Who?'

    Cabbie: 'Frank Feldman. He's a guy who did everything right all the time. Like my coming along when you needed a cab, things happened like that to Frank Feldman every single time.'

    Passenger: 'There are always a few clouds over everybody.'

    Cabbie: 'Not Frank Feldman. He was a terrific athlete. He could have won the Grand-Slam at tennis. He could golf with the pros. He sang like an opera baritone and danced like a Broadway star and you should have heard him play the piano. He was an amazing guy.'

    Passenger: 'Sounds like he was something really special.

    Cabbie: 'There's more.. He had a memory like a computer. He remembered everybody's birthday. He knew all about wine, which foods to order and which fork to eat them with. He could fix anything. Not like me. I change a fuse, and the whole street blacks out. But Frank Feldman, he could do everything right'

    Passenger: 'Wow, some guy then.'

    Cabbie: 'He always knew the quickest way to go in traffic and avoid traffic jams. Not like me, I always seem to get stuck in them. But Frank, he never made a mistake, and he really knew how to treat a woman and make her feel good. He would never answer her back even if she was in the wrong; and his clothing was always immaculate, shoes highly polished too - He was the perfect man! He never made a mistake. No one could ever measure up to Frank Feldman.'

    Passenger: 'An amazing fellow. How did you meet him?'

    Cabbie: 'Well, I never actually met Frank, he died and I married his widow.'

    I got re-married at 40, 24 years ago. If this one doesn't last, I'm going to rent by the hour.

    I came up with several clever responses for this, but any one of them would get me banned from the forums.

    I'm My Own Grandpa
    ( Lonzo & Oscar )

    It sounds funny, I know,
    But it really is so,
    Oh, I'm my own grandpa.

    I'm my own grandpa.
    I'm my own grandpa.
    It sounds funny, I know,
    But it really is so,
    Oh, I'm my own grandpa.

    Now many, many years ago, when I was twenty-three,
    I was married to a widow who was pretty as could be.
    This widow had a grown-up daughter who had hair of red.
    My father fell in love with her, and soon they, too, were wed.

    This made my dad my son-in-law and changed my very life,
    My daughter was my mother, cause she was my father's wife.
    To complicate the matter, even though it brought me joy,
    I soon became the father of a bouncing baby boy.

    My little baby then became a brother-in-law to Dad,
    And so became my uncle, though it made me very sad.
    For if he was my uncle, then that also made him brother
    Of the widow's grown-up daughter, who, of course, was my stepmother.

    Father's wife then had a son who kept him on the run,
    And he became my grandchild, for he was my daughter's son.
    My wife is now my mother's mother, and it makes me blue,
    Because, although she is my wife, she's my grandmother, too.

    Now if my wife is my grandmother, then I'm her grandchild,
    And everytime I think of it, it nearly drives me wild,
    For now I have become the strangest case you ever saw
    As husband of my grandmother, I am my own grandpa!

    I'm my own grandpa.
    I'm my own grandpa.
    It sounds funny, I know, but it really is so,
    Oh, I'm my own grandpa.
