Thursday Special ~ Growing Older


You’re getting old when you don’t care where your spouse goes, just
as long as you don’t have to go along.

Old age is when it takes longer to rest than to get tired.

By the time a man is wise enough to watch his step, he’s too old to
go anywhere.

Old age is when you have stopped growing at both ends, and have
begun to grow in the middle.

Old age is having a choice of two temptations and choosing the
one that will get you home earlier.

A man has reached old age when he is cautioned to slow down by
his Doctor instead of by the police.

Don’t worry about avoiding temptation. As you grow older, it will
avoid you.

You’re getting old when “getting lucky” means you find your car in
the parking lot.

This ageing thing is a problem, I cannot remember if it was Tom, Dick or Harry who sent this to me.

    My doctor thinks that I still have some juice in me but it is my son and daughter who think that I need to not just slow down, but to be stationary!

      When the young folk put you sitting in a corner, then you will have need to worry.

          I get three or four at once, then nothing for a few months. But we do talk every week and he always makes time to meet me when I am down.

              Sorry, Barbara, I did mean down south! Mind you he has a happy knack of linking up on days that are not going well. I am not sure how the vibes reach him!

      I have no trouble finding my car, it has been locked in the garage for the last six months. I must remember to turn over the engine this afternoon.
