Hummm let me
think ,...why did I send you this......don't tell me it's coming to me.....
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
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,
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 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
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
I'm wrinkled, saggy, lumpy, and that's just my left side.
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.)
