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???”
