Hummm let me think ,...why did I send you this......Don't tell me it's coming to me.....
Senior citizens are constantly being criticized
For every conceivable deficiency of the modern world,
Real or imaginary.
We know we take responsibility
For all we have done and do not blame others.
We would like to point out
That it was NOT the senior citizens who took:
The melody out of music,
The pride out of appearance,
The courtesy out of driving,
The romance out of love,
The commitment out of marriage,
The responsibility out of parenthood,
The togetherness out of the family,
The learning out of education,
The service out of patriotism,
The Golden Rule from rulers,
The nativity scene out of cities,
The civility out of behaviour,
The refinement out of language,
The dedication out of employment,
The prudence out of spending,
The ambition out of achievement, or,
God out of government and school.
And we certainly are NOT the ones
Patience and tolerance
From personal relationships and interactions with others!!
And, we do understand the meaning
And remember those who have fought and died
For our country.
YES, I'M A SENIOR CITIZEN!
I'm the life of the party...... Even if it lasts until 8 p.m.
I'm very good at opening childproof caps... With a hammer.
I'm usually interested in going home before I get to where I am going.
I'm awake many hours before my body allows me to get up.
I'm smiling all the time because I can't hear a thing you're saying.
I'm very good at telling stories; over and over and over and over...
I'm aware that other people's grandchildren are not nearly as cute as mine.
I'm so cared for --- long term care, eye care, private care, dental care.
I'm not really grouchy,
I just don't like:
And a few other things
I can't seem to remember right now.
I'm sure everything I can't find is in a safe secure place, somewhere.
I'm wrinkled, saggy, lumpy, and that's just my left leg.
I'm beginning to realize that aging is not for wimps.
I'm sure they are making adults much younger these days,
And when did they let kids become policemen?
If you're only as old as you feel,
How could I be alive at 150?
And, how can my kids be older than I feel sometimes?
I'm a walking storeroom of facts.....
I've just lost the key to the storeroom door.
Now if you cant remember
Who sent this to you,
don't send it back to them,
But send it to many more!
I think that's all for now.
Have an Awesome Day.
Could someone tell me what I was doing before I posted this?
