This Is A Way For An Older Day
“Life is clumsily assembled feast at which we impatiently wait for the starter, while passed in silence around was the main roast.”
“The goal is not to paint life, but to give life painting.”
Have a good Old laugh!
TODAY IS THE OLDEST YOU’VE EVER BEEN,
YET THE YOUNGEST YOU’LL EVER BE,
SO ENJOY THIS DAY WHILE IT LASTS.
“Observations on Growing Older”
Your kids are becoming you…and you don’t like them…
but your grandchildren are perfect!
Going out is good..
Coming home is better!
When people say you look “Great”… they add “for your age!”
When you needed the discount, you paid full price.
Now you get discounts on everything…
movies, hotels, flights, but you’re too tired to use them.
You forget names …. but it’s OK because other people forgot they even knew you!
The five pounds you wanted to lose is now 15 and you have a better
chance of losing your keys than the 15 pounds.
You realize you’re never going to be really good at anything …. especially golf.
Your spouse is counting on you to remember things you don’t remember.
The things you used to care to do, you no longer care to do, but you really
do care that you don’t care to do them anymore.
Your spouse sleeps better on a lounge chair with the TV blaring than he does in bed.
It’s called his “pre-sleep”.
You used to say,
“I hope my kids GET married…
Now, “I hope they STAY married!”
You miss the days when everything worked with just an “ON” and “OFF” switch..
When GOOGLE, ipod, email, modem ….
were unheard of, and a mouse was something that made you climb on a table.
You used to use more four letter words …
Now that you can afford expensive jewelry, it’s not safe to wear it anywhere.
Your spouse has a night out with the friends, but she/he’s home by 9:00 P.M.
Next week it will be 8:30 P..M.
You read 100 pages into a book before you realize you’ve read it.
Notice everything they sell in stores is “sleeveless”?!
What used to be freckles are now liver spots.
Now that your spouse has retired …
you’d give anything if she/he’d find a job!
You have three sizes of clothes in your closet …
Two of which you will never wear.
BUT, old is good in some things:
old songs, old movies,
And best of all, OLD FRIENDS!!
Love you, “OLD FRIEND!”
It’s Not What You Gather,
But What You Scatter That
Tells What Kind Of Life You Have Lived
