SERENITY

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

and have fun finding them.

 

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, take 40 different medications that

make me dizzy, winded, and subject to blackouts.  Have bouts with dementia.

Have poor circulation; hardly feel my hands and feet anymore. 

Can't remember if I'm 85 or 92.  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, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour.  But,

by the time I got my leotards on,

the class was over.

 

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.

Too funny. I find that convention plays a less significant role; like eating a full-on dinner at 8:30 in the morning.

You are indeed! I found footage of you doing just that!

I like that!  From the picture, I thought I was the one on the right with no noodles.  Then, playing it, I saw I got my share, although the greedy one in the middle seemed to get most of it, even without the opposable thumbs of the one on the left.
