NATTER: GROWING OLD


Some light-hearted humour. No disrespect meant to senior cits….we are going to be in the same boat one day. Well, I am after all one year closer to it anyway.....if I am already not there, that is!!!!

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

Just before the funeral services, the undertaker came up to the very elderly widow and asked, 'How old was your husband?'

'98,' she replied. 'Two years older than me'

'So you're 96,' the undertaker commented.

She responded, 'Hardly worth going home, is it?

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

Reporters interviewing a 104-year-old woman:

'And what do you think is the best thing about being 104?' the reporter asked.

She simply replied, 'No peer pressure.

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

The nice thing about being senile is...
You can hide your own Easter eggs.

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


I've sure gotten old!
I've had two bypass surgeries, a hip replacement,
New knees, fought prostate cancer and diabetes
I'm half blind,

Can't hear anything quieter than a jet engine,
Take 40 different medications that
Make me dizzy, winded, and subject to blackouts.

Have bouts with dementia
Have poor circulation;
Hardly feel my hands and feet anymore.
Can't remember if I'm 85 or 92.

Have lost all my friends. But, thank God…..
I still have my driver's license!!!!

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

I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape, so I got my doctor's permission to join a fitness club and start exercising.
I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors.

I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour.

But, by the time I got my leotards on, the class was over.


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

My memory's not as sharp as it used to be.
Also, my memory's not as sharp as it used to be.

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

Know how to prevent sagging?
Just eat till the wrinkles fill out.

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

It's scary when you start making the same noises….
As your coffee maker!


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

THE SENILITY PRAYER:

Grant me the senility to forget
the people I never liked anyway,
The good fortune to run into the ones I do, and
The eyesight to tell the difference.

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

Always Remember This:
You don't stop laughing because you grow old,
You grow old because you stop laughing!

HAVE A GOOD DAY.........
