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.


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.


I don't know how I got over the hill without getting to the top.


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.


Long ago when men cursed and beat the ground
with sticks, it was called witchcraft.
Today, it's called golf.

I read the one about the son, a surgeon, to my Mom. She couldn't stop laughing! While my brothers are not surgeons, my father has had more extremely major surgery in the past 4 years, than I ever thought one human being could survive, but he has, and done it well. It is a long-standing joke (dating back about 20 years) about who gets Mom & who gets Dad should something happen. She actually hung up on me so that she could run and tell my Dad the joke, before she forgot it!:re: I also sent it to my brother that originally said it to them.

Keep 'em coming.................:up:

So little time, sew much to do...........
