A little about getting old
« on: July 02, 2012, 11:50:21 AM »
A distraught senior citizen phoned her doctor's office.
"Is it true," she wanted to know,"that the medication you prescribed has to be taken
for the rest of my life?" "'Yes, I'm afraid so,"' the doctor told her.
There was a moment of silence before the senior lady replied,"I'm wondering, then, just how serious is my condition because this prescription is marked'NO REFILLS'."


An older gentleman was on the operating table awaiting surgery and he insisted that his son, a renowned surgeon, perform the operation. As he was about to get the anesthesia, he asked to speak to his son. "Yes, Dad, what is it?" "Don't be nervous, son; do your best, and just remember, if it doesn't go well, if something happens to me,your mother is going to come and live with you and your wife...."


Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age

and start bragging about it. This is so true. I love to hear them say "you don't look that old."

The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

Some people try to turn back their odometers.
Not me! I want people to know why I look this way. I've traveled a long way
and some of the roads weren't paved.


You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.

First you forget names, then you forget faces.
Then you forget to pull up your zipper...
it's worse when you forget to pull it down.

(And this final one especially for me,)


keep Your arm around my shoulder and Your hand over my mouth!"

Pretty good!

That last one often applies to met, also.
