Growing Older ... Not for Sissies


You may have seen some of these before, I'm on 'playcation,' so I'm posting some fun stuff ... remember: 100 laughs a day is equal to 10 minutes of exercise!

How can it can get any easier than that?

























































The Duck and I plan for the check to the mortuary to "bounce"!!! And we now have our plots paid for, sooo
...

Age is something that doesn't matter, unless you are a cheese.
I didn't get old on purpose, it just happened. If you're lucky, it could happen to you.
I think age is a very high price to pay for maturity.
Age seldom arrives smoothly or quickly. It's more often a succession of jerks.
As you get older three things happen. The first is your memory goes, and I can't remember the other two...
Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been.

First I had to hit the increase buton to inlarge the type so I could read this...the process of getting older is so very different than what I had expected it to be. As I face my 50th year my close friend and I have many session of "What's up with that?" the ache's, pains, emotional issues...you just don't think about these thing when you're a spring chicken.

Shalom

Oh Robin ... "facing 50" - Honey, you ARE a Spring Chicken!!!! I've got 13 years on you and I wouldn't trade being younger for anything, I'm being serious here! Most days I feel 25 years old ... my mind thinks I can still do things I did 'back then' but my body has given up a lot of those things. As I've gotten older, I hope that I'm a little wiser- I know I am kinder, more patient and filled with gratitude for each day ... every new day is a gift. 'Maxine' is a cranky ole broad and I love her spunk, but that's not me. Vaarwel, Sandy
