For my young friends

I very quietly confided to my best friend that I was having an affair.

She turned to me and asked, ‘Are you having it catered’?

And that, my friend,

Is the definition of ‘OLD’!

Just before the funeral services, the undertaker

Came up to the very elderly widow and asked,

‘How old was your husband?’

’96,’ she replied: ‘Two years younger than me’

‘So you’re 98,’ the undertaker commented.

She responded, ‘Not 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.’

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,

still have my Florida driver’s license.

An elderly woman decided to prepare her will and

Told her preacher she had two final requests.

First, she wanted to be cremated, and second,

She wanted her ashes scattered over Wal-Mart.

‘Wal-Mart?’ the preacher exclaimed. ‘Why Wal-Mart?’

‘Then I’ll be sure my daughters visit me twice a week.’

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.

~ ~ ~

These days about half the stuff

In my shopping cart says,

‘For fast relief.’

~ ~ ~

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.

~ ~ ~

Now, I think you’re supposed to share this with 5 or 6, maybe 10 others.

Oh heck, give it to a bunch of your friends if you can remember who they are!

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:

I don’t want to brag or make anyone jealous or anything, but I can still fit
into the earrings I wore in high school
