My Wish List for 2015


My Wish List for 2015 


Wouldn't  it be great if we could put ourselves in the dryer for ten minutes;

come out wrinkle-free and three sizes smaller!

Last year I joined a support group for procrastinators.  We haven't met yet!

I  don't trip over things, I do random gravity checks!

I  don't need anger management.  I need people to stop pissing me off!

Old  age is coming at a really bad time!

When  I was a child I thought Nap Time was a punishment ...

now, as a grown up, it just feels like a small vacation!

The biggest lie I tell myself is ... "I don't need to write that down, I'll remember it."

I  don't have gray hair.  I have "wisdom highlights".  I'm just very wise.

My people skills are just fine.  It's my tolerance to idiots that needs work.

Teach  your daughter how to shoot, because a restraining order is just a piece of paper.

If  God wanted me to touch my toes, he would've put them on my  knees.

The  kids text me "plz" which is shorter than please. 

I text back "no"  which is shorter than "yes".

I'm  going to retire and live off of my savings.  Not sure what I'll do that second week.

When  did it change from "We the people" to "screw the people"?

I've lost my mind and I'm pretty sure my kids took it!

Even duct tape can't fix stupid ... but it can muffle the sound!

Lord, Give me patience and give it to me NOW.

Of  course I talk to myself, sometimes I need expert advice.

Oops!  Did I roll my eyes out loud?

At  my age "Getting lucky" means walking into a room and remembering what I  came in there for!

Some thoughts on aging


 

 
 

AND THEN IT IS WINTER

 

 

You know ... time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of the passing years. It seems just yesterday that I was young, just married and embarking on my new life with my mate. Yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all the years went. I know that I lived them all. I have glimpses of how it was back then and of all my hopes and dreams.

 

 

But, here it is... the back nine of my life and it catches me by surprise...How did I get here so fast? Where did the years go and where did my youth go?

 

 

I remember well seeing older people through the years and thinking that those older people were years away from me and that I was only on the first hole and the back nine was so far off that I could not fathom it or imagine fully what it would be like.

 

 

But, here it is...my friends are retired and getting gray...they move slower and I see an older person now. Some are in better and some worse shape than me...but, I see the great change...Not like the ones that I remember who were young and vibrant...but, like me, their age is beginning to show and we are now those older folks that we used to see and never thought we'd become.

 

 

Each day now, I find that just getting a shower is a real target for the day! And taking a nap is not a treat anymore... it's mandatory! Cause if I don't on my own free will... I just fall asleep where I sit!

 

 

And so...now I enter into this new season of my life unprepared for all the aches and pains and the loss of strength and ability to go and do things that I wish I had done but never did!! But, at least I know, that though I’m on the back nine, and I'm not sure how long it will last...this I know, that when it's over on this earth...it's over. A new adventure will begin! Yes, I have regrets. There are things I wish I hadn't done...things I should have done, but indeed, there are many things I'm happy to have done. It's all in a lifetime.

 

 

So, if you're not on the back nine yet...let me remind you, that it will be here faster than you think. So, whatever you would like to accomplish in your life please do it quickly! Don't put things off too long!! Life goes by quickly. So, do what you can today, as you can never be sure whether you’re on the back nine or not!

 

 

You have no promise that you will see all the seasons of your life...so, live for today and say all the things that you want your loved ones to remember...and hope that they appreciate and love you for all the things that you have done for them in all the years past!!

 

 

"Life" is a gift to you. The way you live your life is your gift to those who come after. Make it a fantastic one. LIVE IT WELL! ENJOY TODAY! DO SOMETHING FUN! BE HAPPY ! HAVE A GREAT DAY Remember "It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver. LIVE HAPPY IN 2014!

 

LASTLY, CONSIDER THIS:

~Your kids are becoming you......but your grandchildren are perfect!

~Going out is good.. Coming home is better!

~You forget names.... But it's OK because some people forgot they even knew you!!!

~You realize you're never going to be really good at anything like golf.

~The things you used to care to do, you aren't as interested in anymore, but you really do care that you aren't as interested.

~You sleep better on a lounge chair with the TV 'ON' than in bed. It's called "pre-sleep".

~You miss the days when everything worked with just an "ON" and "OFF" switch..

~You tend to use more 4 letter words ... "what?"..."when?"... ???

~You notice everything they sell in stores is "sleeveless"?!!!

~What used to be freckles are now liver spots.

~Everybody whispers.

~You have 3 sizes of clothes in your closet.... 2 of which you will never wear.


 

~~~But Old is good in some things: Old Songs, Old movies, and best of all, OLD FRIENDS!!

 

 

Stay well, "OLD FRIEND!" Send this on to other "Old Friends!" and let them laugh in AGREEMENT!!! It's Not What You Gather, But What You Scatter That Tells What Kind Of Life You Have Lived.

 

TODAY IS THE OLDEST YOU'VE EVER BEEN, YET THE YOUNGEST YOU'LL EVER BE, SO ENJOY THIS DAY WHILE IT LASTS.

2014 Conference on Aging




A classic! -- enough said. Always a joy to watch James Cagney and Bob Hope with their dance number.


We all know Fred Astaire and GeneKelly were great dancers but they weren't the only ones. Here are James Cagney and Bob Hope at a Friar's Club Meeting in 1955, back when actors were real performers; Hope was 52 and Cagney was 56. This looks like it's from a movie, not a routine from a Friar's Club meeting. Doesn't take away from it though! For the young folks, here is something you've probably never seen before and, unfortunately, you may never see again. For us older folks, this is the best of the best, and we had it for many years! This is a side of these two entertainers you hardly ever saw, but it shows you their enormous talent. Bob Hope, the best of comedians, and James Cagney, mostly cast as the bad guy, a gangster in the movies

.

A classic! -- enough said. Always a joy to watch James Cagney and Bob Hope with their dance number. This time on a beautiful table.



A cup of tea


A Cup of Tea

One day my Grandma was out, and my Grandpa was in charge of me.

I was maybe 2-1/2 years old.  Someone had given me a little 'tea
set' as a gift, and it was one of my favourite toys.
 
Grandpa was in the living room engrossed in the evening news when I brought
him a little cup of 'tea', which was just water.

After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such yummy tea, my Grandma

came home.

My Grampa made her wait in the living room to watch me bring him a cup of

tea, because it was 'just the cutest thing'!

Grandma waited, and sure enough, here I came down the hall with a cup of
tea for Grandpa, and she watched him drink it up.

Then she said, (as only a Grandma would know), "'Did it ever occur to you
the only place she can reach to get water is the toilet?"
 
IF YOU SEND THIS ON, YOU CAN MAKE ANOTHER GRANDPARENT,

AND MAYBE A FUTURE GRANDPARENT, SMILE.



Getting older!


Repairing Hearts & Getting Older 

 

A mechanic was removing a cylinder head from the motor of a Harley motorcycle when he spotted a well-known heart surgeon in his shop.

The surgeon was there, waiting for the service manager to come and take a look at his bike.

The mechanic shouted across the garage, "Hey, Doc, can I ask you a question?"

The surgeon a bit surprised, walked over to the mechanic working on the motorcycle. The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked, "So Doc, look at this engine. I open its heart, take the valves out, fix 'em, put 'em back in, and when I finish, it works just like new. So how come I get such a small salary and you get the really big bucks, when you and I are doing basically the same work?"

The surgeon paused, smiled and leaned over, and whispered to the mechanic... 

"Try doing it with the engine running."

 

***********************************************

 

 

 

A distraught senior citizen

 

phoned her doctor's office.

 

"Is it true," she wanted to know,

 

"that the medication

 

you prescribed has to be taken

 

for the rest of my life?"

 

"'Yes, I'm afraid so,"' the doctor told her.

 

There was a moment of silence

 

before the senior lady replied,

 

"I'm wondering, then,

 

just how serious is my condition

 

because this prescription is marked

 

'NO REFILLS'."

 

***********************

 

 

 

An older gentleman was

 

on the operating table

 

awaiting surgery

 

and he insisted that his son,

 

a renowned surgeon,

 

perform the operation.

 

As he was about to get the anesthesia,

 

he asked to speak to his son.

 

"Yes, Dad, what is it?"

 

"Don't be nervous, son;

 

do your best,

 

and just remember,

 

if it doesn't go well,

 

if something happens to me,

 

your mother

 

is going to come and

 

live with you and your wife...."

 

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Aging:

 

Eventually you will reach a point

 

when you stop lying about your age

 

and start bragging about it. This is so true. I love

 

to hear them say "you don't look that old.."

 

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

 

 

 

The older we get,

 

the fewer things

 

seem worth waiting in line for.

 

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

 

Some people

 

try to turn back their odometers.

 

Not me!

 

I want people to know why

 

I look this way.

 

I've traveled a long way

 

and some of the roads weren't paved.

 

********************

 

 

 

When you are dissatisfied

 

and would like to go back to youth,

 

think of Algebra.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

 

You know you are getting old when

 

everything either dries up or leaks.

 

 

 

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

 

One of the many things

 

no one tells you about aging

 

is that it is such a nice change

 

from being young.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

 

Ah, being young is beautiful,

 

but being old is comfortable.

 

*********

 

 

 

First you forget names,

 

then you forget faces.

 

Then you forget to pull up your zipper....

 

it's worse when

 

you forget to pull it down.

 

````````````````

 

 

 

(And this final one especially for me,)

 

"Lord,

 

keep Your arm around my shoulder

 

and Your hand over my mouth!"

 

 

 

Now, if you feel this doesn't apply to you . . . stick around awhile . . . it will!

NO NURSING HOME FOR ME!!


  • The only person, who is with us our entire life, is OURSELVES.....
  •  
  •                   NO  NURSING HOME FOR ME!!!
  •  
  •        No  nursing home for us. We'll be checking into a  Holiday Inn!
  •  
  •  
  • With the average cost for a  nursing home care costing $188.00 per day, there is a  better way when we get old and too feeble.  I've  already checked on reservations at the Holiday  Inn.
  • For  a combined long term stay discount and senior  discount, it's $59.23 per  night.
  • Breakfast  is included, and some have happy hours in the  afternoon.
  • That  leaves $128.77 a day for lunch and dinner in any  restaurant we want, or room service, laundry,  gratuities and special TV  movies.
  • Plus, they provide a spa, swimming pool, a workout room, a lounge and washer-dryer, etc.
  • Most  have free toothpaste and razors, and all have free  shampoo and soap.
  • $5  worth of tips a day you'll have the entire staff
  • scrambling to help you.
  • They treat you like a customer, not a  patient.
  • There's a city bus stop out front, and seniors ride  free.
  • The handicap bus will also pick you up (if you fake a  decent limp).
  • To meet other nice people, call a church bus on  Sundays.
  • For  a change of scenery, take the airport shuttle bus  and eat at one of the nice restaurants  there.
  • While you're at the airport, fly somewhere. Otherwise, the  cash keeps building up.
  •  
  • It takes months to get into decent  nursing homes. Holiday Inn will take your  reservation today.
  • And  you're not stuck in one place forever -- you can  move from Inn to Inn, or even from city to  city.
  • Want  to see Hawaii ? They have Holiday Inn there  too.
  • TV  broken? Light bulbs need changing? Need a mattress  replaced? No problem.. They fix everything, and  apologize for the  inconvenience.
  •  
  • The Inn has a night security person and daily room  service. The maid checks to see if you are ok. If  not, they'll call an ambulance . . . or the  undertaker.
  • If  you fall and break a hip, Medicare will pay for the  hip, and Holiday Inn will upgrade you to a suite for  the rest of your life.
  •  
  •  
  • And no worries about visits from family. They will  always be glad to find you, and probably check in  for a few days  mini-vacation.
  •  
  • The  grandkids can use the pool.
  • What more could I ask for?
  •  
  • So, when I reach that golden age,  I'll face it with a grin.
