Senior citizens are constantly being criticized for
every conceivable deficiency of the modern world,
real or imaginary.  We know we take responsibility
for all we have done and do not blame others.


HOWEVER, upon reflection,
we would like to point out that it was
 
NOT the senior citizens who took: >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
And we certainly are NOT the ones who eliminated
patience and tolerance from personal relationships and
interactions with others!!
 

       
And, we do understand the meaning of patriotism, and
remember those who have fought and died for our country.


Does anyone under the age of 50 know the lyrics to the
Star Spangled Banner?   or O Canada

As Seniors~We Didn't take:

     The melody out of music,
    The pride out of appearance,
    The courtesy out of driving,
    The romance out of love,
    The commitment out of marriage,
    The responsibility out of parenthood,
    The togetherness out of the family,
    The learning out of education,
    The service out of patriotism,
    The Golden Rule from rulers,
    The nativity scene out of cities,
    The civility out of behavior,
    The refinement out of language,
    The dedication out of employment,
    The prudence out of spending,
    The ambition out of achievement, or,
    God out of government and school.

Just look at the Seniors with tears in their eyes and pride in
their hearts as they stand at attention, on veterans day and our
 great country's   birthday . 
 

 

YES, I'M A SENIOR CITIZEN!

I'm the life of the party......    even if it lasts until 8 p.m.
I'm very good at opening childproof caps...   with a hammer.
I'm usually interested in going home before I get to where I am going.
I'm awake many hours before my body allows me to get up.
I'm smiling all the time because I can't hear a thing you're saying.
I'm very good at telling stories; over and over and over and over...
I'm aware that other people's grandchildren are not nearly as cute as mine.
I'm so cared for --- long term care, eye care, private care, dental care.



I'm not really grouchy,

I just don't like traffic, waiting, crowds, lawyers, loud music, unruly kids, Jenny Craig and Toyota commercials,  barking dogs, politicians and a few other things I can't seem to remember right now.

I'm sure everything I can't find is in a safe secure place,  somewhere.
I'm wrinkled, saggy, lumpy, and that's just my left leg.
I'm having trouble remembering simple words like.......
I'm beginning to realize that aging is not for wimps.
I'm sure they are making adults much younger these days, and when did they let kids become policemen?
I'm wondering, if you're only as old as you feel, how could I be alive at 150?
And, how can my kids be older than I feel sometimes?

I'm a walking storeroom of facts.....  I've just lost the key to the storeroom door.

Yes, I'm a SENIOR CITIZEN and I think I am having the time of my life!

Now if I could only remember who sent this to me, I wouldn't send it back to them,  but I would send it to many more!


Now- Have I already sent this to you???????

If so, I'll try not to do it again (for a while.)

I thought you would want to know about this e-mail virus.

Even the most advanced programs from Norton or McAfee cannot take care of this one.
It appears to mostly affect those who were born prior to 1965.

Symptoms:

1. Causes you to send the same e-mail twice  Done that!
2. Causes you to send a blank! E-mail!  That too!
3. Causes you to send e-mail to the wrong person.   Yep!
4. Causes you to send it back to the person who sent it to you.. Who me?
5. Causes you to forget to attach the attachment.  Well darn!
6. Causes you to hit 'SEND' before you've finished.   Oh no - not again!
7. Causes you to hit 'DELETE' instead of 'SEND.'  I just hate that!

8. Causes you to hit 'SEND' when you should 'DELETE.'  Oh No!
 

IT IS CALLED THE 'C-NILE VIRUS.'

My Grandson Told me This Story Below
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

One day a 6  year old girl was sitting in a classroom. The teacher was  going to explain

evolution to the children. The teacher asked  

a little boy: Tommy do you see the tree

outside?


TOMMY: Yes.



TEACHER: Tommy, do you see the grass


outside?


TOMMY: Yes.



TEACHER: Go outside and look up and  see


if you can see the sky.


TOMMY: Okay. (He returned a few minutes


later) Yes, I saw the sky.


TEACHER: Did you see God up there?



TOMMY: No.



TEACHER: That's my point. We can't see


God because he isn't there. Possibly he just

doesn't exist.

A little girl spoke up and wanted to ask the


boy some questions.


The teacher agreed and the little girl asked


the boy: Tommy, do you see the tree

outside?


TOMMY:  Yes.



LITTLE GIRL: Tommy do you see the grass


outside?


TOMMY: Yessssss!



LITTLE GIRL:  Did you see the sky?



TOMMY: Yessssss!



LITTLE GIRL: Tommy, do you see the


teacher?


TOMMY: Yes



LITTLE GIRL: Do you see her brain?



TOMMY: No



LITTLE GIRL: Then according to what we


were taught today in school, she possibly

may not even have one!


(You Go Girl!)

Senior thoughts


Just before the funeral services, the undertaker came up to the very elderly widow and asked, "How old was your husband?"  

"98," she replied.  "Two years older than me"

"So you're 96," the undertaker commented.  

She responded, "Hardly worth going home, is it?
---------------------------------------------------------                     
          
Reporters interviewing a 104-year-old woman: "And what do you think is the best thing about being 104?" the reporter asked.  


She simply replied, "No peer pressure."
--------------------------------------------------------                     
                 
The nice thing about being senile is you can hide your own Easter eggs.

--------------------------------------------------------
                
I've sure gotten old!!!  I've had two bypass surgeries, a hip replacement, new knees, fought prostate cancer and diabetes. I'm half blind, can't hear anything quieter than a jet engine.  I take 40 different medications that make me dizzy, winded, and subject to blackouts. I have bouts with dementia, poor circulation, and can hardly feel my hands and feet anymore.  I can't remember if I'm 85 or 92, and I have lost all my friends.


But Thank God, I still have my driver's license.
-------------------------------------------------------                   
                 
I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape, so I got my doctor's permission to join a fitness club and start exercising.  I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors.    I bent, squatted, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour. But, by the time I got my leotards on, the class was over.

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

An elderly woman decided to prepare her will and told her preacher she had two final requests.  First, she wanted to be cremated, and second, she wanted her ashes scattered over Wal-Mart.  


"Wal-Mart?" the preacher exclaimed. "Why Wal-Mart?"  

"Then I'll be sure my daughters visit me twice a week."

My memory's not as sharp as it used to be.  Also, my memory's not as sharp as it used to be.

Know how to prevent sagging?  Just eat till the wrinkles fill out.
---------------- ------------------------------                  

It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker.

These days about half the stuff in my shopping cart says, "For fast relief."

THE SENILITY PRAYER :
Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference. 

 

What are Grand Parents?

Don't forget Proverbs 17:6 "....children's children are a crown to the aged.." That gives us scriptural validity to brag about your grandchildren.

Grandmas are moms
With lots of frosting.

Until the first grandchild.

Becoming a grandmother
Is wonderful.
One moment
You're just a mother.
The next you are all-wise
And prehistoric. ~Pam Brown

Grandchildren
Don't stay young forever,
Which is good because
Grandfathers
Have only so many horsey ri! des in them.
~Gene Perret

When grandparents enter the door,
Discipline flies out the window.

Grandma always made you feel
She had been waiting to see just
You all day and now the day was complete.

Of hugs or cookies.

For just a little while,
But our hearts forever.

If I had known how wonderful
It would be to have grandchildren,

My grandkids believe
I'm the oldest thing in the world.
And after two or three hours with them,
I believe it, too. ~Gene Perret

If becoming a grandmother
Was only a matter of choice,
I should advise every one of you
Straight away to become one.
There is no fun for old people like it!

It's such a grand thing to be
A mother of a mother -
that's why the world
Calls her grandmother.

You do not really understand something
Unless you can explain it to your grandmother. ~Proverb

An hour with your grandchildren
Can make you feel young again.
Anything longer than that,
And you start to age quickly.
~Gene Perret

The best baby-sitters, of course,
Are the baby's grandparents. You
Feel completely comfortable entrusting!
You r baby to them for long periods,
Which is why most grandparents
Flee to Florida ~Dave Barry

I wish I had the energy
That my grandchildren have -
If only for self-defense.
~Gene Perret

Grandmother-grandchild relationships
Are simple. Grandmas are short on criticism
And long on love. ~Author Unknown

What grandparents do.

Over the lives of little children.

A wonderful mother with lots of
Practice. ~Author Unknown

But young on the inside.

Is that of a new grandbaby
Around the finger of a grandfather.

Seem so young once you
Become one. ~Author Unknown

Never cries or fusses,
Sleeps on schedule and burps on demand,
An angel all the time," you're the grandma.
~Teresa Bloomingdale

Grandparents are similar to a piece of string -
Handy to have around and easily wrapped
Around the fingers of their
Grandchildren. ~Author Unknown

I'd like to say that grandparents are
God's gifts to children.
And if they can but see, hear a! nd feel
What these people have to give,
They can mature at a fast rate. ~Bill Cosby

Grandchildren don't make a man feel old;
it's the knowledge that he's
Married to a grandmother. ~G. Norman Collie
