Great Truths About Growing Old:

  1. 1) Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.
    2) Forget the health food. I need all the preservatives I can get.
    3) When you fall down, you wonder what else you can do while you're down there.
    4) You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.
    5) It's frustrating when you know all the answers, but nobody bothers to ask you the questions.
    6) Time may be a great healer, but it's a lousy beautician.
    7) Wisdom comes with age, but sometimes age comes alone.

    Love these ! I really laughed out loud at the rocking chair one ! (I sure do love my rocking chair on the front porch)... my daughter stops by to visit and catches us both sitting in the rockers ( AFTER a hard day of working in the yard, of course ) and spouts: "geeeeeeeeeeesh ! You guys are REALLY getting old ! Always in those rocking chairs!"

    hmmmmmmm... this ol' momma was UP at 0600, while her daughter slept 'til NOON... uh HUH !

    It kinda jolts me, though, when I buy an antique that is younger than me.. "antique"...??? What does that make ME, then?
