You Do Not Have to Feel Old

Two men in a retirement center were talking. Norm said, Im 85 years old and feel like I'm falling apart. How do you feel George?  

George replied, Even though Im almost 100, I feel like a new-born babe.  

How in the world can you feel like a new-born at your age? Norm asked.

I dont have any teeth, I dont have any hair, I cant sleep through the night, and Im back to wearing diapers.

Don't Think of It As Getting Older

Trying to Look Younger

A middle-aged woman has a heart attack and leaves her body in a "near death experience." She sees a bright light and a voice says, "It's not your time to go. You still have another 30 years to live.  Immediately she goes back into her body and lives again.

The woman decides she has a new reason to live, so she schedules major cosmetic surgery: a face-lift, liposuction, and tummy-tuck. She dyes her hair to cover up her gray, making her look 10 years younger. The next day when she crosses the street, she is hit by a speeding car.  She dies again, leaves her body, and sees the bright light.  

"Hey, what happened?" she complains. "I thought you said I had another 30 years?"

The voice says, "Im sorry, but I didn't recognize you."

Be Sure to Buckle Up

At a nursing home, a resident said, "My arms are so weak I can hardly lift a cup of coffee.  My cararacts are so bad I can't even see my toothbrush.  I can't turn my head because of the arthritis in my neck.  My blood pressure medicine makes me dizzy.  But thank God, I can still drive!"

Your Age in Fractions

"When you're younger, you think of your age in fractions.  4 1/2,  5 1/2.  You don't hear 36 1/2.  You become 2, you turn 40, you reach 50, you make it to 60.  By now you're going so fast you hit 70!" --Mark Lowry
