Musings Of A Senior Citizen.

Since most of my regular readers are senior citizens, just as I am, I am sharing a forward that I received.

“As I was lying around, pondering the problems of the world, I realised that at my age I don’t really give a rat’s ass anymore.
If walking is good for your health, the postman would be immortal.
A whale swims all day, mainly eats fish and drinks water, but is still fat.
A rabbit runs and hops and only lives 15 years, while a tortoise doesn’t run and does mostly nothing, yet it lives for 150 years.

And you tell me to exercise? I don’t think so.

Just grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked, the good fortune to remember the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

Now that I’m older here’s what I’ve discovered:

• I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it.
• My wild oats are mostly enjoyed with prunes and all-bran.
• I finally got my head together, and now my body is falling apart.
• Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.
• Some days, you’re the top dog; some days you’re the hydrant.
• It was a whole lot easier to get older, than to get wiser.
• If all is not lost, then where the heck is it?
• I wish the buck really did stop here; I sure could use a few of them.
• Kids in the back-seat cause accidents.
• Accidents in the back-seat cause kids.
• It’s hard to make a comeback when you haven’t been anywhere.
• The world only beats a path to your door when you’re in the bathroom.
• If God wanted me to touch my toes, he’d have put them on my knees.
• When I’m finally holding all the right cards, everyone wants to play chess.
• It’s not hard to meet expenses – they’re everywhere.
• The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.
• These days, I spend a lot of time thinking about the hereafter – I go somewhere to get something, and then wonder what I’m “here, after”.
• Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.
• HAVE I SENT THIS MESSAGE TO YOU BEFORE???”

    “Kids in the back-seat cause accidents. Accidents in the back-seat cause kids.” I love it.

    “It was a whole lot easier to get older, than to get wiser.” Ditto.

    I can’t say anything about old age.I don’t feel I’ve reached it yet, I’m still pretty fit and healthy. Ask me again about old age in ten years’ time.

  4. The line, “And you tell me to exercise? I don’t think so,” sounds like the doctor in my latest post. Good timing!
