1) You hear "snap, crackle, pop"........and you're not eating cereal.

2) Every time you get out of a chair, it feels as though your knees are going to explode.

3) You see someone with a walker and no longer shudder; instead, you think, "Hmmmm......that could come in handy one of these days".

4) You're reading the obituaries in the newspaper and think everyone in there who was under age 75 "died too young".

5) You realize that you're closer to 60 than 40, closer to 70 than 30, and closer to pushing up daisies than pushing your way into the world.

6) People you went to school with are showing up at the nursing home for therapies post-TKR and THR.

7) Your hands begin to remind you of your grandmother's.

8) You're in the "shop" (AKA doctor's office) for routine maintenance more often than your car is.

9) Your kids are already whispering about "what to do with Mom and Dad in a few years" when they think you can't hear them.

10) You start a new job in an assisted-living facility, and on your first day a resident asks if you're moving in. :uhoh3:

11. you're older than ethel mertz.

(we found out in one episode that she's older than the speedy cleaners (40) but younger than

goldblatt's deli. (50)

12. you wonder why ebay doesn't list caskets or fainting couches.

13. suddenly, all the actors in depends, polident, and $15.000 life insurance ads are about your age.

14. you run into a girl you went to junior high with in wal*mart that you haven't seen for 30 years,

and the first thing she says to you after "hi" is "you must dye your hair since you hardly have any

grays! (matter of fact, i don't dye. i yank anything that stands straight out...)

15. you and your husband run into your first boyfriend and the guys really hit it off and end up

watching every college football game together.

16: You remember what Harrison Ford looked like when he was young. Sigh.

Now THAT'S scary---I remember him from way back in 1973 when he appeared in "American Graffiti", which I think was his first role in a major film. He was quite a looker back then......and he still is. :redbeathe

17. When you and your husband go from fighting over the last bit of toothpaste in the tube to fighting over the last bit of poligrip in the tube.

18. When it gets harder to pluck your eyebrows because so many hairs are now white and harder to see.

A woman at my DH lodge told me that from the back I resemble a woman in a Cialis ad. She meant it as a compliment.

Said to my husband, ( as I was scooping a second helping out of the crockpot) "Dr. Oz told me today that I need to eat more beans."

His reply, "Yeah, well, Dr. Oz doesn't have to live with you; I do."

You know you're getting old when you have to get up out of bed to make the pain in your knees ease off.
