Thoughts on getting older

# Everything hurts, and what doesn't hurt, doesn't work.

# The gleam in your eyes is from the sun hitting your bifocals.

# You feel like the 'morning after' and you haven't been anywhere the night before.

# Your little black book contains only names ending in M.D.

# Your children begin to look middle aged.

# You reach the top of the ladder and find it leaning against the wrong wall.

# Your mind makes contracts your body can't meet.

# You look forward to a dull evening.

# You turn out lights for economic rather than romantic reasons.

# You sit in a rocking chair and can't get it going.

# Your knees buckle and your belt won't.

# You regret all those mistakes you made, especially resisting temptation.

# Your back goes out more than you do.

# You have too much room in the house and not enough room in the medicine cabinet.

# You know all the answers but nobody asks you any questions.

# You no longer grit your teeth at night, because you don't sleep in the same room as they do.

# When you see your reflection, you wonder why the old person is staring at you.

# The candles at your bithday party cost more than the cake.

# By law, a fire extinguisher must be present, when they light your candles.

# You are older than your doctor.

# Joints that were soft, stay stiff, muscles that got stiff, now stay soft.

I think I'm just going stay young forever. How about you :?: :D

Joan :D

    Aw, don`t worry Cath, I`m twice your age, and I`ve got none of `em.

    See, age brings the ability to lie, whilst keeping a straight face!!!

    Normally I would poo! hoo! the idea of getting old,but after spending the night and today with 'Arther' feel older than my mum and dad.Knew I had too good a day yesterday!! Was even too tired to throw any strops! Took a p/k at 2am,knowing it would react and it did,so felt like rubbish all day.Hope everyone else had a better day.Mirabella.

    Oh dear, Mirabella. Arthur has a way of making us all feel older sometimes. I hope you feel a bit better now.
