None of us are THIS old, but we can sure enjoy laughing!

 
 
 
 
GETTING OLDER


A distraught senior citizen

phoned his doctor's office.

"Is it true," he 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 him.

There was a moment of silence

before the senior 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...."

(I LOVE IT!)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Aging:

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.

(Mostly because we forgot why we were waiting in line in the first place!!)
---------------------------------
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.


********************

When you are dissatisfied

and would like to go back to youth,

think of Algebra.


-------------------------------

One of the many things
no one tells you about aging

is that it is such a nice change

from being young.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Ah, being young is beautiful,

but being old is comfortable.

*********

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,)

"Lord,
keep Your arm around my shoulder

and Your hand over my mouth!"

Now, if you feel this doesn't apply to you . . . stick around awhile . . . it will!

One day, you will be just a memory to some people; try your best to be a good one...
