Gentle Thoughts for The Aging

The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then your body and your fat have got to be really good friends.

He who hesitates is probably right.

Did you ever notice: The Roman Numerals for forty (40) are ‘ XL.’

If you think there is good in everybody, you haven’t met everybody.

If you can smile when things go wrong, you have someone in mind to blame.

The sole purpose of a child’s middle name is so he can tell when he’s really in trouble.

There’s always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don’t hurt.

Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know ‘why’ I look this way. I’ve travelled a long way and some of the roads weren’t paved.

When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth, think of Algebra.

You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.

One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young.

Ah, being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.

First you forget names, then you forget faces. Then you forget to pull up your zipper. It’s worse when you forget to pull it down.

Long ago when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was called witchcraft. Today, it’s called golf.

Change is what happens when the pain of holding on becomes greater than the fear of letting go

Lord, keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth…AMEN. !!

Birds of a feather flock together and hover over your car.

When I’m feeling down, I like to whistle. It makes the neighbour’s dog run to the end of his chain and gag himself.

The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

A penny saved is a government oversight.

and finally for my American friends –

Didn’t you ever notice when you put the 2 words ‘The’ and ‘IRS’ together it spells ‘Theirs’?
