The Truth About Old Folks              Getting Old(er)   /   Back Home

Thanks to Sammie for sending this one!

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: 

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. 

And we certainly are
 NOT the ones who eliminated patience andtolerance 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?
 


Just look at the Seniors with tears in their eyes and 
pride in their hearts as they stand at attention with 
their hand over their hearts!
 



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 in long lines, crowds, lawyers, unruly kids, 
Toyota commercials, Dan Rather, 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 realizing 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 too!
 



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

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