Funny Repeat - but appropriate

Father O'Malley rose from his bed on a fine Spring day in his new Washington DC parish.

He went to the window to get a deep breath of fresh air from the beautiful day outside. He noticed a dead ******* lying in the middle of his front lawn.

He promptly called for assistance, and the converstion went like this:

"Good morning. This is Senator John Kerry. How might I help you?"

"And the best o' the day te yerself. This is Father O'Malley at St. Brigid's. There's a ******* lying dead in me front lawn. Would ye be so kind as to send a couple o' yer lads to take care of the matter?"

Senator Kerry, considering himself to be quite a wit, replied with a smirk, "Well now Father, it was always my impression that you people took care of Last Rites!"

There was dead silence on the line for a long moment. Father O'Malley then replied, "Aye, that's certainly true, but we are also obliged to notify the NEXT OF KIN!"

Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their
days interesting. I went to the store the other day. I was only in there
for about five minutes. When I came out there was a city cop writing out
a parking ticket. I went up to him and said, "Come on, buddy, how about
giving a senior a break?"

He ignored me and continued writing the ticket. I called him a name. He
glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn tires.
So I called him a worse name. He finished the second ticket and put it
on the windshield with the first. Then he started writing a third
ticket. This went on for about 20 minutes. The more I abused him the
more tickets he wrote.

I didn't care. My car was parked around the corner. But this one had an
"Elect John Kerry" bumper sticker on it. I try to have a little fun each
day now that I'm retired. It's important at my age.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
