Old Friends

I'm sorry I've been missing this week. The 'Crud' came for a visit, and has decided it likes it here, so it has stayed. I am ready to kick it out of the house!

The holidays are over; a new congress has been sworn in; the New Year started with the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Gifford,. It is so good to know that our God is still in control, but we do need prayer.

Anyway, here is a little funny for all of my 'older' friends. (You younger ones should read it too, because your day is coming...faster than your think!)


TODAY IS THE OLDEST YOU'VE EVER BEEN,YET THE YOUNGEST YOU'LL EVER BE,SO ENJOY THIS DAY WHILE IT LASTS.

Observations on Growing Older


~Your kids are becoming you...and you don't like them...but your grandchildren are perfect!

~Going out is good..Coming home is better!


~When people say you look "Great"...
they add "for your age!"

~When you needed the discount, you paid full price.

Now you get discounts on everything...movies, hotels, flights, but you're too tired to use them.


~You forget names .... but it's OK
because other people forgot they even knew you!!!

~The 5 pounds you wanted to lose
is now 15 and you have a better chance of losing your keys than the 15 pounds.

~You realize you're never going
to be really good at anything .... especially golf.

~Your spouse is counting on you
to remember things you don't remember.

~The things you used to care to do,
you no longer care to do, but you really do care that you don't care to do them anymore.

~Your husband sleeps better on a lounge chair
with the TV blaring than he does in bed. It's called his "pre-sleep".

~Remember when your mother said,

"Wear clean underwear in case you GET in an accident"?

Now you bring clean underwear in case you HAVE an accident!


~You used to say,

"I hope my kids GET married...

Now, "I hope they STAY married!"


~You miss the days when everything worked
with just an "ON" and "OFF" switch..

~When GOOGLE, ipod, email, modem....were unheard of, and a mouse was
something that made you climb on a table.

~You used to use more 4 letter words ...

"what?"..."when?"... ???


~Now that you can afford
expensive jewelry, it's not safe to wear it anywhere.

~Your husband has a night out with the guys,
but he's home by 9:00 P.M. Next week it will be 8:30 P.M.

~You read 100 pages into a book before you realize you've read it.


~Notice everything they sell in stores is "sleeveless"?!!!


~What used to be freckles are now liver spots.


~Everybody whispers.

~Now that your husband has retired ... you'd give anything if he'd find a job!
~You have 3 sizes of clothes in your closet ... 2 of which you will never wear.

~~~~But old is good in some things:

old songs,

old movies,

And best of all, OLD FRIENDS!!


Love you, "OLD FRIEND!"

Send this on to other "Old Friends!" and

let them laugh in AGREEMENT!!!


It's Not What You Gather, But What You Scatter That Tells What Kind Of Life You Have Lived

Yep, I can relate to all of these. In fact, most of them have happened, are happening, or will happen soon to me.
