GETTING OLDER

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...."
(I LOVE THIS!)

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!
