Crabby Old Man

When an old man died in the geriatric ward of a nursing home in North Platte, Nebraska, it was believed that he had nothing left of any value.

Later, when the nurses were going through his meager possessions, They found this poem. Its quality and content so impressed the staff that copies were made and distributed to every nurse in the hospital.


One nurse took her copy to
Missouri. The old man's sole bequest to posterity has since appeared in the Christmas edition of the News Magazine of the St. Louis Association for Mental Health.  A slide presentation has also been made based on his simple, but eloquent, poem.


And this little old man, with nothing left to give to the world, is now the author of this 'anonymous' poem winging across the Internet.


Crabby Old Man


What do you see nurses? . . What do you see?
What are you thinking . . . .. when you're looking at me?
A crabby old man, . . . . ... not very wise,

Uncertain of habit .  . . ... with faraway eyes?

Who dribbles his food . . . . . ..... and makes no reply .
When you say in a loud voice . .. . . "I do wish you'd try!"
Who seems not to notice . .. . the things that you do.
And forever is losing . . . . . . . a sock or a shoe?


Who, resisting or not . .. . . . lets you do as you will,
With bathing and feeding. .. . . the long day to fill?
Is that what you're thinking?  . . Is that what you see?
Then open your eyes, nurse . . . you're not looking at me..


I'll tell you who I am.  . .  as I sit here so still,
As I do at your bidding, . . . as I eat at your will.
I'm a small child of ten .  . with a father and mother,
Brothers and sisters . . . . . . who love one another.


A young boy of sixteen . . . . with wings on his feet
Dreaming that soon now . . . . . a lover he'll meet..
A groom soon at twenty ... . . .my heart gives a leap.
Remembering, the vows . .. . that I promised to keep.


At twenty-five, now . . . . . I have young of my own.
Who need me to guide  . and a secure happy home.
A man of thirty . . . . . .  My young now grown fast,
Bound to each other . . . With ties that should last...


At forty, my young sons . . . have grown and are gone,
But my woman's beside me . . .. to see I don't mourn.
At fifty, once more,  . . babies play 'round my knee,
Again, we know children . .. . My loved one and me.


Dark days are upon me . . . .my wife is now dead...
I look at the future   . .. . ..  shudder with dread...
For my young are all rearing . . .. young of their own.
And I think of the years,. and the love that I've known.


I'm now an old man . . . . . and nature is cruel.
Tis jest to make old age . . . look like a fool.
The body, it crumbles ... . grace and vigour, depart.
There is now a stone . .. . where I once had a heart.


But inside this old carcass . . . a young guy still dwells,
And now and again .. . . . my battered heart swells.
I remember the joys . . . .. . I remember the pain.
And I'm loving and living . . . . . . life over again.


I think of the years, all too few . .. . gone too fast.
And accept the stark fact . . . that nothing can last.
So open your eyes, people .. . . ... open and see.

Not a crabby old man.   Look closer .. .. see ME!!


Remember this poem when you next meet an older person who you might brush aside without looking at the young soul within .. . . .. we will all, one day, be there, too!


PLEASE SHARE THIS POEM
The best and most beautiful things of this world can't be seen or touched. They must be felt by the heart

SENIOR BUS TOURS:

 
A tour bus driver is driving with a bus load of seniors down a highway when he is tapped on his shoulder by a little old lady. She offers him a handful of peanuts, which he gratefully munches up. 

After about 15 minutes, she taps him on his shoulder again and she hands him another handful of peanuts.

She repeats this gesture about five more times.

When she is about to hand him another batch again ....he asks the little old lady, 'Why don't you eat the peanuts yourself?'. 

'We can't chew them because we've no teeth', she replied.

The puzzled driver asks, 'Why do you buy them then?'
 

The old lady replied, 'We just love the chocolate around them.'



It pays to be careful around old people!!!

SERENITY  

Just before the funeral services, 
the undertaker came up to the very elderly widow and asked,
 
'How old was your husband?' 
'98,' she replied, 'Two years older than me' 
'So you're 96,' the undertaker commented. 
She responded , 'Hardly worth going home, is it?
 


Reporter interviewing a 104-year-old woman: 
'And what do you think is the best thing about being 104?' the reporter asked. 
She simply replied, 'No peer pressure.'
 



The nice thing about being senile is You can hide your own Easter eggs.
 



I've sure gotten old! I've had two bypass surgeries, a hip replacement, 
New knees, fought prostate cancer and diabetes
. 
I'm half blind, 
Can't hear anything quieter than a jet engine, 
Take 40 different medications that 
Make me dizzy, winded, and subject to blackouts. 
Have bouts with dementia .. 
Have poor circulation; 
Hardly feel my hands and feet anymore. 
Can't remember if I'm 89 or 98. 
Have lost all my friends. But, thank God, 
I still have my driver's license.


 

I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape,
 
So I got my doctor's permission to 
Join a fitness club and start exercising. 
I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors. 
I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour.. 
But, by the time I got my leotards on, The class was over.



My memory's not as sharp as it used to be. 
Also, my memory's not as sharp as it used to be.
 


Know how to prevent sagging? Just eat till the wrinkles fill out.
 



It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker.
 



These days about half the stuff in my shopping cart says,

"For fast relief"
 


THE SENILITY PRAYER : 
Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, 
The good fortune to run into the ones I do, 
and the eyesight to tell the difference..
 



Now, I think you're supposed to share this with 5 or 6, maybe 10 others.. Oh heck, give it to a bunch of your friends if you can remember who they are!

Good Morning 

If you are an Elvis fan you will get a giggle out of this.

Life is great for those who can put on a happy face and remember yester years!!!!!!!!!!!

If your are too young for this, then it's for your MOM

JUST THINK, ELVIS WOULD BE 74 THIS YEAR!   

 If Elvis had lived longer, he possibly would have rewritten, 

'Are You Lonesome Tonight'

Here's how it might have turned out.

             Click on the sentence below.

Are You Lonesome Tonight (Senior Citizen Version)

ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT? (Senior Citizen Version)

Are you lonesome tonight?
Does your tummy feel tight?
Did you bring your mylanta and tums?

 Does your memory stray,
To that bright sunny day,
When you had all your teeth and your gums?

 Is your hairline receding?
Your eyes growing dim?
Hysterectomy for her,
And its prostate for him.

 Does your back give you pain?
Do your knees predict rain?
Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight?

 Is your blood pressure up?
Good cholesterol down?
Are you eating your low fat cuisine?

 All that oat bran and fruit,
Metamucil to boot.
Helps you run like
A well oiled machine.

 If it's football or baseball,
He sure knows the score.
Yes, he knows where it's at
But forgets what it's for.

So your gallbladder's gone,
But your gout lingers on,
Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight?

 When you're hungry, he's not,
When you're cold, he is hot,
Then you start that old thermostat war.

When you turn out the light,
He goes left and you go right,
Then you get his great symphonic snore.

 He was once so romantic,
So witty and smart;
How did he turn out to be such
A cranky old fart?

 So don't take any bets,

It's as good as it gets,

Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight?
 
Ladies and gentlemen, Elvis has left the building.

I think she was a GM employee. Do you remember her?

Ethel the Wheelchair Demon

Ethel was a bit of a demon in her wheelchair, and loved to charge around the nursing home, taking corners on one wheel and getting up to maximum speed on the long corridors. Because the poor woman was one sandwich short of a picnic the other residents tolerated her and some of them actually joined in.

One day Ethel was speeding up one corridor when a door opened and Kooky Wagoner stepped out with his arm outstretched. "STOP!," he shouted in a firm voice. "Have you got a license for that thing?" Ethel fished around in her handbag and pulled out a Kit Kat wrapper and held it up to him. "OK" he said, and away Ethel sped down the hall.

As she took the corner near the TV lounge on one wheel, weird Lutz popped out in front of her and shouted "STOP! Have you got proof of insurance?" Ethel dug into her handbag, pulled out a drink coaster and held it up to him. Lutz nodded and said "On your way, Ma'am."

As Ethel neared the final corridor, Crazy Roger stepped out in front of her, Butt- Naked, and holding his "You-Know- What" in his hand. "Oh, good grief, "yelled Ethel, "Not that Damn Breathalyzer Test again.!!!"

God Bless GM And All Of Its Folks!!!!

RETIRED GUY...

 I WENT TO THE STORE THE OTHER DAY. I WAS ONLY IN THERE FOR ABOUT 5 MINUTES.
 WHEN I CAME OUT THERE WAS A CITY COP WRITING OUT A PARKING TICKET.

 I WENT UP TO HIM AND SAID, "COME ON, BUDDY, HOW ABOUT GIVING A SENIOR A BREAK"

 HE IGNORED ME AND CONTINUED WRITING THE TICKET.
 I CALLED HIM A NAME.
 HE GLARED AT ME AND STARTED WRITING ANOTHER TICKET FOR HAVING WORN TIRES.

 SO I CALLED HIM A WORSE NAME.
 HE FINISHED THE SECOND TICKET AND PUT IT ON THE WINDSHIELD WITH THE FIRST.
 THEN HE STARTED WRITING A THIRD TICKET.

 THIS WENT ON FOR ABOUT 20 MINUTES.
 THE MORE I ABUSED I HIM, THE MORE TICKETS HE WROTE.

 I DIDN'T CARE.
 MY CAR WAS PARKED AROUND THE CORNER .
 THIS ONE HAD A "HILLARY IN '08" BUMPER STICKER ON IT.


 I TRY TO HAVE A LITTLE FUN EACH DAY NOW THAT I'M RETIRED.
 IT'S IMPORTANT AT OUR AGE.

Tom Rush - Remember Song

 

 

Thought that you would love this chuckle. Jim Conlee JKCONLEE@aol.com

This is a true account recorded in the Police Log of
Sarasota, Florida...

An elderly Florida lady did her shopping and, upon returning  to her
car,  found four males in the act of leaving with her vehicle. She dropped
her  shopping bags and drew her handgun, proceeding to scream at the top
of her  voice, I have a gun, and I know how to use it! Get out of the car!!!!

The four men didn't wait for a second invitation. They got out and
ran  like mad.

 

The lady, somewhat shaken, then proceeded to load her
shopping  bags into the back of the car and got into the driver's seat.

 

She was so  shaken that she could not get her key into the ignition.  She tried
and  tried, and then it dawned on her why.....For the same reason she did
not  understand why there was a football, a Frisbee and two 12 packs in
the  front seat...

 

A few minutes later, she found her own car parked four
or  five spaces farther down. She loaded her bags into the car and drove
to  the police station to report her mistake. The sergeant to whom

she told  the story couldn't stop laughing. He pointed to the other end of the  

counter, where four pale men were reporting a car jacking by a mad,
elderly woman described as white, less than five feet tall, glasses,
curly white hair and carrying large handgun No charges were filed.

 MORAL OF THE STORY? If you're going to have a Senior Moment, make it
 memorable!

I think the life cycle is all backwards.

You should start out dead; get
that out of the way. You wake up in an old age home, feeling better
every day. You get kicked out for being too healthy; go collect your
pension, and when you start work, you get a gold watch on your first
day. You work 40 years until you're young enough to enjoy your
retirement. You party hardy, and you get ready for High School. You go
to primary school,
You become a kid,
You lay,
You have no responsibilities,
You become a baby, then...
You spend your last 9 months floating peacefully with luxuries like
central heating, spa, room service on tap, larger quarters everyday, and
finally... You finish off as an orgasm.
It's got to be better this way 'cause this getting old sucks!
 

 

 

Senior Breakfast

    We went out to breakfast. The waitress told us the "seniors' special"
    was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $1.99.

    "Sounds good," my wife said. "But I don't want the eggs."

    "Then I'll have to charge you two dollars and forty-nine cents  because
    you're ordering a la carte," the waitress warned her.

    "You mean I'd have to pay for not taking the eggs?" My wife asked
    incredulously. "I'll take the special", she said.

    "How do you want your eggs?"

    "Raw and in the shell," my wife replied.
 
     She took the two eggs home.


     Lesson learned----- DON'T MESS WITH SENIORS!
                                     They've been around the block more than once.

A Wild Friday Night at Our House
HOW TRUE IT IS (scroll down)
 
Another year has passed
and we're all a little older.
Last summer felt hotter
and winter seems much colder.
I rack my brain for happy thoughts,
to put down on my pad,
But lots of things that come to mind
just make me kind of sad.
 
There was a time not long ago
when life was quite a blast.
Now I fully understand
about "Living in the Past".
We used to go to friends homes,
football games and lunches.
Now we go to therapy, to hospitals,
and after-funeral! brunche s.
 
We used to have hangovers,
from parties that were happy.
Now we suffer body aches
and sleep the night away.
We used to go out dining,
and couldn't get our fill.
Now we ask for doggie bags,
come home and take a pill.
 
We used to often travel
to places near and far.
Now we get backaches
from riding in the car.
We used to go out shopping
for new clothing at the Mall
But, now we never bother...
all the sizes are too small.
 
That, my friend is how life is,
and now my tale is told.
So, enjoy each day and live it up...
before you're too darn old!!

Car - IF MY BODY WERE A CAR


If my body were a car, this is the time I would be thinking about trading it in for a newer model. I've got bumps and dents and scratches in my finish and my paint job is getting a little dull, but that's not the worst of it.

My fenders are too wide to be considered stylish. They were once as sleek as little MG; now they look more like an old Buick. My seat cushions have split open at the seams.

My seats are sagging. Seat belts? I gave up all belts when Krispy Cremes opened a shop in my neighborhood. Air bags? Forget it. The only bags I have these days are under my eyes. Not counting the saddlebags, of course.

I have soooooo many miles on my odometer. Sure, I've been many places and seen many things, but when's the last time an appraiser factored life experiences against depreciation? My headlights are out of focus and it's especially hard to see things up close.

My traction is not as graceful as it once was. I slip and slide and skid and bump into things even in the best of weather. My whitewalls are stained with varicose veins. It takes me hours to reach my maximum speed.

My fuel rate burns inefficiently. But here's the worst of it almost every time I sneeze, cough or sputter..... either my radiator leaks or my exhaust backfires!

Did You Remember?

A couple in their nineties is having problems remembering things, so they decide to go to the doctor for a checkup. The doctor tells them that they are physically okay but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember. Later that night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair.

Wife: "Where are you going dear?"
Husband: "To the kitchen"
Wife: "Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?"
Husband: "Sure."
Wife: "Don't you think you should write it down so you can remember it?"

Husband: "No, I can remember that!"
Wife: "Well, I'd like some strawberries on top. You'd better write it down 'cause I know you'll forget it."
Husband: "I can remember that! You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries."
Wife: "I'd also like whipped cream. Now I'm certain you'll forget that, so you'd better write it down."
Husband: "I don't need to write it down. I can remember that! Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream!"

He then grumbles all the way to the kitchen. After about 20 minutes the old man returns from the kitchen and hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs.

She stares at the plate for a moment and says, "Where's my toast?

So How Was YOUR Game?

"How was your game, dear?" asked Jack's wife Tracy.

"Well, I was hitting pretty well, but my eyesight's gotten so bad I couldn't see where the ball went," he answered.

"But you're 75 years old, Jack!" admonished his wife, "Why don't you take my brother Scott along?"

"But he's 85 and doesn't play golf anymore," protested Jack.

"But he's got perfect eyesight. He would watch the ball for you," Tracy pointed out.

The next day Jack teed off with Scott looking on. Jack swung and the ball disappeared down the middle of the fairway.

"Do you see it?" asked Jack.

"Yup," Scott answered.

"Well, where is it?" yelled Jack, peering off into the distance.

"I forgot."

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.

 
HOWEVER, upon reflection, 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 behavior,
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 who eliminated patience and tolerance from personal relationships and interactions with others!!
 
And, we do understand the meaning of patriotism, and remember those who have fought and died for our country.
 
Does anyone under the age of 50 know the lyrics to the Star Spangled Banner?
 
What about the last verse of My Country 'tis of Thee?
"Our father's God to thee,
Author of liberty,
To Thee we sing.
Long may our land be bright,
With freedom's Holy light.
Protect us by Thy might,
Great God our King."
 
Just look at the Seniors with tears in their eyes and pride in their hearts as they stand at attention with their hand over their hearts!

Recent widow who has just buried fourth husband, and am looking
for someone to round out a six-unit plot.
Dizziness, fainting, shortness of breath not a problem.

WINNING SMILE:

to share rare steaks,
corn on the cob and caramel candy

BEATLES OR STONES?

If you were a groovy chick, or are now a groovy hen,

I can usually remember Monday through Thursday. 
If you can remember Friday, Saturday and Sunday, let's put our two heads together.

when we're kids?  If you're less than 10 years old, you're so excited about
aging that you think in fractions.

"How old are you?" "I'm four and a half!" You're never thirty-six and a
half.  You're four and a half, going on five!

That's the key.

You get into your teens, now they can't hold you back.  You jump to the
next number, or even a few ahead.

"How old are you?"  "I'm gonna be 16!" You could be 13, but hey, you're
gonna be 16! And then the greatest day of your life . . . you become 21.
Even the words sound like a ceremony . . . YOU BECOME 21. YESSSS!!!

But then you turn 30.  Oooohh, what happened there?  Makes you sound like
bad milk!  He TURNED; we had to throw him out. There's no fun now, you're
just a sour-dumpling.  What's wrong?  What's changed?

You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, then you're PUSHING 40.

Whoa!  Put on the brakes, it's all slipping away.  Before you know it, you
REACH 50 and your dreams are gone.

But wait!!!  You MAKE it to 60. You didn't think you would!

So you BECOME 21, TURN 30, PUSH 40, REACH 50 and MAKE it to 60.

You've built up so much speed that you HIT 70!  After that it's a
day-by-day thing; you HIT Wednesday!

You get into your 80s and every day is a complete cycle;  you HIT lunch;
you TURN 4:30;  you REACH bedtime.

And it doesn't end there.  Into the 90s, you start going backwards;  "I Was
JUST 92."

Then a strange thing happens.  If you make it over 100, you become a little
kid again.  "I'm 100 and a half!"

May you all make it to a healthy 100 and a half!!


HOW TO STAY YOUNG

1. Throw out nonessential numbers.  This includes age, weight and height.
Let the doctors worry about them.  That is why you pay " them " .

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.

3. Keep learning.  Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening,
whatever.  Never let the brain idle.  "An idle mind is the devil's
Workshop."  And the devil's name is Alzheimer's.

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud.  Laugh until you gasp for breath.

6. The tears happen.  Endure, grieve, and move on.  The only person who is
with us our entire life, is ourselves.  Be ALIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love, whether it's family, pets,
keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever.  Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it.  If it is unstable,
improve it.  If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don't take guilt trips.  Take a trip to the mall, even to the next
county; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

AND ALWAYS REMEMBER:
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments
that take our breath away.

And if you don't send this to at least 8 people - who cares?
But do share this with someone.  We all need to live life to its fullest
each day

Subject: Julie Andrew's favorite things have aged
 
 To commemorate her 69th birthday last October 1, actress/vocalist Julie
 Andrews made a special appearance at Manhattan's Radio City Music Hall
 for the benefit of the AARP. One of the musical numbers she performed
 was "My Favorite Things" from the legendary movie "Sound Of Music."
 However,  the lyrics of the song were deliberately changed for the entertainment
 of her "blue hair" audience. Here are the lyrics she recited:
 
 Maalox and nose drops and needles for knitting,
 
 Walkers and handrails and new dental fittings,
 
 Bundles of magazines tied up in string,
 
 These are a few of my favorite things.
 
 Cadillacs ™ and cataracts and hearing aids and glasses,
 
 Polident and Fixodent and false teeth in glasses,
 
 Pacemakers, golf carts and porches with swings,
 
 These are a few of my favorite things.
 
 When the pipes leak,
 
 When the bones creak,
 
 When the knees go bad,
 
 I simply remember my favorite things,
 
 And then I don't feel so bad.
 
 Hot tea and crumpets, and corn pads for bunions,
 
 No spicy hot food or food cooked with onions,
 
 Bathrobes and heat pads and hot meals they bring,
 
 These are a few of my favorite things.
 
 Back pains, confused brains, and no fear of sinnin',
 
 Thin bones and fractures and hair that is thinnin',
 
 And we won't mention our short shrunken frames,
 
 When we remember our favorite things.
 
 When the joints ache,
 
 when the hips break,
 
 When the eyes grow dim,
 
 Then I remember the great life I've had,
 
 AND THEN I DON'T FEEEEEL SOOO BAD!
 
 Ms. Andrews received a standing ovation from the crowd that lasted over
 four minutes and repeated encores.

Did You See THAT at the Mall?

An Amish boy and his father were visiting a mall during the after Christmas sales. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and back together again. The boy asked his father, "What is this, Father?" The father [never having seen an elevator] responded "Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I don't know what it is."

While the boy and his father were watching wide-eyed, an old lady in a wheel chair rolled up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched small circles of lights with numbers above the walls light up. They continued to watch the circles light up in the reverse direction.

The walls opened up again and a beautiful 24-year-old woman stepped out. The father said to his son, "Go get your mother."

Reasons to Stay Away from Florida

A group of seniors were sitting around the pool in sunny Florida talking about all their ailments.

"My arms have gotten so weak I can hardly lift this cup of coffee," said one.

"Yes, I know," said another. "My cataracts are so bad I can't even see my coffee."

"I couldn't even mark an 'X' at election time, my hands are so crippled, "volunteered a third.

"What? Speak up, I can't hear you," said a fourth.

"I can't turn my head because of the arthritis in my neck," said a fifth, to which several nodded weakly in agreement.

"My blood pressure pills make me so dizzy I can hardly walk," exclaimed another.

"I forget where I am and where I'm going," said an elderly gent.

"I guess that's the price we pay for getting old," winced an old man as he slowly shook his head.

The others nodded in agreement.

"Well, count your blessings," said one woman cheerfully.

"THANK GOD WE CAN ALL DRIVE!"

WHAT IS A GRANDPARENT?

(taken from papers written by a class of 8-year-olds)


Grandparents are a lady and a man who have no! little children of her own. They like other people's.

A grandfather is a man grandmother.

Grandparents don't have to do anything except be there when we come to see them. They are so old they shouldn't play hard or run. It is good if they drive us to the store and have lots of quarters for us.

When they take us for walks, they slow down past things like pretty leaves and caterpillars.

They show us and talk to us about the color of the flowers and also Why we shouldn't step on "cracks."

They don't say, "Hurry up."

Usually grandmothers are fat, but not too fat to tie your shoes.

They wear glasses and funny underwear.

They can take their teeth and gums out.

Grandparents don't have to be smart.

They have to answer questions like "why isn't God married?" and "How come dogs chase cats?".

When they read to us, they don't skip. They don't! mind if we ask for the same story over again.

Everybody should try to have a grandmother, especially if you don't have television, because they are the only grown ups who like to spend time with us.

They know we should have snack-time before bedtime and they say prayers with us every time, and kiss us even when we've acted bad.


A 6 YEAR OLD WAS ASKED WHERE HIS GRANDMA LIVED. ''OH,'' HE SAID, ''SHE LIVES AT THE AIRPORT, AND WHEN WE WANT HER WE JUST GO GET HER. THEN WHEN WE'RE DONE HAVING HER VISIT, WE TAKE HER BACK TO THE AIRPORT.'' 

Send this to other grandparents. It will make their day.

God gives us free will!  What we do with it is up to us.

Peace be with you!

Just in case you weren't feeling too old today, this will certainly change things. Each year the staff at
Beloit College in Wisconsin puts together a list to try to give the faculty a sense of the mind set of this year's incoming freshmen.  Here's this year's list:


The people who are starting college this fall across the nation were born in 1985. They are too young to remember the space shuttle blowing up.


Their lifetime has always included AIDS.


Bottle caps have always been screw off and plastic.


The CD was introduced the year they were born.


They have always had an answering machine.

They have always had cable.



They cannot fathom not having a remote control.


Jay Leno has always been on the Tonight Show.


Popcorn has always been cooked in the microwave.


They never took a swim and thought about Jaws.


They can't imagine what hard contact lenses are.


They don't know who Mork was or where he was from.


They never heard: "Where's the Beef?", "I'd walk a mile for a Camel", or "de plane Boss, de plane".



They do not care who shot J. R. and have no idea who J. R. even is.


McDonald's never came in Styrofoam containers.


They don't have a clue how to use a typewriter.


Do you feel old yet?  Pass this on to the other old fogies on your list.  Notice the larger type, that's for those of you who have trouble reading.

Do You Have A.A.A.D.D. ?

Recently, I was diagnosed with A. A. A. D. D. - Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder.

This is how it manifests:

I decide to wash my car.

… As I start toward the garage, I notice that there is mail on the hall table.

… I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.

… I lay my car keys down on the table, put the junk mail in the trash can under the table, and notice that the trash can is full.

… So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the trash first.

… But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox when I take out the trash anyway, I may as well pay the bills first.

… I take my checkbook off the table, and see that there is only one check left

… My extra checks are in my desk in the study, so I go to my desk where I find the can of Coke that I had been drinking.

… I'm going to look for my checks, but first I need to push the Coke aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over. I see that the Coke is getting warm, and I decide I should put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.

… As I head toward the kitchen with the coke a vase of flowers on the counter catches my eye--they need to be watered.

… I set the Coke down on the counter, and I discover my reading glasses that I've been searching for all morning.

… I decide I better put them back on my desk, but first I'm going to water the flowers.

… I set the glasses back down on the counter, fill a container with water and suddenly I spot the TV remote.

… Someone left it on the kitchen table.

… I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, I will be looking for the remote, but I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table, so I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers.

… I splash some water on the flowers, but most of it spills on the floor.

… So, I set the remote back down on the table, get some towels and wipe up the spill.

… Then I head down the hall trying to remember what I was planning to do.

… At the end of the day: the car isn't washed, the bills aren't paid, there is a warm can of Coke sitting on the counter, the flowers aren't watered, there is still only one check in my checkbook, I can't find the remote, I can't find my glasses, and I don't remember what I did with the car keys.

… Then when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day long, and I'm really tired.

… I realize this is a serious problem, and I'll try to get some help for it, but first I'll check my e-mail.

… Do me a favor, will you? Forward this message to everyone you know, because I don't remember to whom it has been sent.

… Don't laugh -- if this isn't you yet, your day is coming!

NEW EXERCISE PROGRAM FOR SENIORS

Here's the exercise program I am using to stay in shape this year. You might want to take it easy at first, then do it faster as you become more proficient. It may be too strenuous for some.


      ALWAYS CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE
      STARTING ANY EXERCISE PROGRAM.

      NOW SCROLL DOWN...











 

 

 

 NOW SCROLL UP...

      That's enough for the first day              
      We don't want to overdo it!!!


 

 

Jack,

I think I have seen this one before, but thought you might enjoy.

This is a true example of what human kindness is all about. Someone who teaches at a Middle School in Safety Harbor, Florida, forwarded the following  letter.  The letter was sent to the principal’s office after the school had sponsored a luncheon for the elderly. An old lady received a new radio at the luncheon as a door prize, and was writing to say thank you.

Dear Safety Harbor Middle School;

God bless you for the beautiful radio I won at your recent senior citizens luncheon. I am 84 years old and live at the Safety Harbor Assisted Home for the Aged. All of my family has passed away. I am all alone now and it’s nice to know that someone is thinking of me. God bless you for your kindness to an old forgotten lady.

My roommate is 95 and always had her own radio, but before I received one, she would never let me listen to hers, even when she was napping. The other day her radio fell off the night stand and broke into a lot of pieces. It was awful and she was in tears.

She asked if she could listen to mine, and I said kiss my a--!

Thank you for that opportunity.

Sincerely,

Edna Walters

Subject:            A Florida Story
 
  A senior citizen in Florida bought a brand new Mercedes convertible.
  He took off down the road, flooring it to 80 mph and enjoying the wind
  blowing through what little hair he had left.

  “This is great,” he thought as he roared down I-75. He pushed the
   pedal to the metal even more. Then he looked in his rear view mirror
   and saw a highway patrol trooper behind him, blue lights flashing and siren blaring.

  “I can get away from him with no problem” thought the man and he tromped
  it some more and flew down the road at over 100 mph. Then 110, 120 mph.
  Then he thought, “What am I doing? I’m too old for this kind of thing.”
 

  He pulled over to the side of the road and waited for the trooper to
  catch-up with him.
  The trooper pulled in behind the Mercedes and walked up to the man.
  “Sir,” he said, looking at his watch. “My shift ends in 10 minutes, it’s
  Friday and I have the weekend off. If you can give me a reason why you
  were speeding that I’ve never heard before, I’ll let you go.”
 

  The man looked at the trooper and said, “Years ago my wife ran off with
  a Florida State trooper, and I thought you were bringing her back.”
  The trooper replied, “Sir, have a nice day.”

74-Year-Old Survives Attack by Alligator

SANIBEL, Fla. (April 22) - A 74-year-old woman survived an attack by a nearly 10-foot-long alligator that bit her on the leg and arm and dragged her into a lake.

Jane C. Keefer was stable and in good condition at HealthPark Medical Center early Thursday, hospital officials said.

Police said Keefer was attacked at about 8 p.m. Wednesday as she was gardening near the bank behind her home.

Bitten first on the leg, Keefer was able to fight the alligator off, Sanibel Police Chief Bill Tomlinson said.

The reptile lunged at her a second time, biting her arm and dragging her into the water, before her husband, William, was able to help her get away, said Lar Gregory, an investigator with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Authorities captured the alligator at 10:45 p.m. behind Keefer’s home. It will be destroyed.

“This is the kind of gator that will kill you,” said trapper John French.

Don't mess with the old Ladies!

 

How To Get Out of A Ticket:


An older lady gets pulled over for speeding...

Older Woman: Is there a problem, Officer?

Officer: Ma'am, you were speeding.

Older Woman: Oh, I see.

Officer: Can I see your license please?

Older Woman: I'd give it to you but I don't have one.

Officer: Don't have one?

Older Woman: Lost it, 4 years ago for drunk driving.

Officer: I see...Can I see your vehicle registration papers please.

Older Woman: I can't do that.

Officer: Why not?

Older Woman: I stole this car.

Officer: Stole it?

Older Woman: Yes, and I killed and hacked up the owner.

Officer: You what? Older Woman: His body parts are in plastic bags in the trunk if you want to see.

The Officer looks at the woman and slowly backs away to his car and calls for back up. Within minutes 5 police cars circle the car. A senior officer slowly approaches the car, clasping his half! drawn gun.

Officer 2: Ma'am, could you step out of your vehicle please! The woman steps out of her vehicle.

Older woman: Is there a problem sir?

Officer 2: One of my officers told me that you have stolen this car and murdered the owner.

Older Woman: Murdered the owner?

Officer 2: Yes, could you please open the trunk of your car, please.

The woman opens the trunk, revealing nothing but an empty trunk.

Officer 2: Is this your car, ma'am?

Older Woman: Yes, here are the registration papers. The officer is quite stunned.

Officer 2: One of my officers claims that you do not have a driving license.

The woman digs into her handbag and pulls out a clutch purse and hands it to the officer.

The officer examines the license. He looks quite puzzled.

Officer 2: Thank you ma'am, one of my officers told me you didn't have a license, that you stole this car, and that you murdered and hacked up the owner.

Older Woman: Bet the liar told you I was speeding, too

Senior to young employee:

 If you had bought $1000.00 of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now be
worth $49.00.

With Enron, you would have $16.50 of the original $1,000.00.

With Worldcom, you would have less than $5.00 left.

If you had bought $1,000.00 worth of Budweiser (the beer, not the stock)
one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the cans for the 10 cent
deposit, you would have $214.00.>

Based on the above, my current investment advice is to drink heavily and
recycle.

This is the new retirement program.  I call it the 401Keg program.

There is a story about a popular young Baptist preacher, who
on Sunday morning announces to the congregation that he will
not renew his contract, and is moving on to a larger
congregation that will pay him more. There is a hush. No one
wants him to leave.

Brother William (Bubba) Scoles, who owns several car dealer-
ships, stands up and announces, “If the preacher stays, I’ll
provide him with a new sedan every year, and his lovely wife
with a minivan, to transport their children!” The congregation
amens, and applauds.
 
Brother Billy Bob Tindall, the entrepreneur and investor,
stands and says, “If the preacher stays, I’ll double his
salary, and establish a foundation to guarantee the college
education of his children!!” More amens and applause.
 
Senior Sister Ella May Rouse, aged 70, stands and announces, “If the
preacher stays, I’ll give him sex!”
 
There is a hush. The preacher, blushing, asks, “Sister Ella
May, whatever possessed you to say that?”
 
Senior Sister Ella May answers, “I just asked my husband how we could
help, and he said, ‘Screw the preacher.’

An elderly Florida lady did her shopping, and upon returning to her car, she found four males in the act of leaving with her vehicle. She dropped her shopping bags and drew her handgun, proceeding to scream at the top of her voice. “I have a gun, and I know how to use it! Get out of the car!”

The four men didn’t wait for a second invitation. They got out and ran like mad.The lady, somewhat shaken, then proceeded to load her shopping bags into the back of the car and get into the driver’s seat. She was so shaken that she could not get her key into the ignition. She tried and tried, and then it dawned on her why.

A few minutes later she found her own car parked four or five spaces farther down. She loaded her bags into the car and then drove to the police station.The sergeant to whom she told the story doubled over on the floor with laughter. He pointed to the other end of the counter, where four pale men were reporting a car jacking by a mad, elderly woman described as white, less than five feet tall, glasses, curly white hair, and carrying a large handgun.

No charges were filed. .....ah, senior moments...

 from now, a month from now, a year from now.
 
 A frail old man went to live with his son, daughter-in-law, and four-year old
 grandson. The old man’s hands trembled, his eyesight was blurred, and his
 step faltered.
 
 The family ate together at the table. But the
 elderly grandfather’s shaky hands and failing sight made eating difficult.
 Peas rolled off his spoon onto the floor.
 When he grasped the glass, milk spilled on the tablecloth.
 The son and daughter-in-law became irritated with the mess.
 We must do something about Grandfather,” said the son. I’ve had enough
 of his spilled milk, noisy eating, and food on the floor.
 
 So the husband and wife set a small table in the corner. There, Grandfather
 ate alone while the rest of the family enjoyed dinner. Since Grandfather had
 broken a dish or two, his food was served in a wooden bowl.
 
 When the family glanced in Grandfather’s direction, sometime he had a tear in
 his eye as he sat alone. Still, the only words the
 couple had for him were sharp admonitions when he dropped a fork or spilled
 food.
 
 The four-year-old watched it all in silence. One evening before supper, the
 father noticed his son playing with wood scraps on
 the floor. He asked the child sweetly, “What are you making?” Just as
 sweetly, the boy responded, “Oh, I am making a little bowl for you and Mama to eat
 your food in when I grow up.” The four-year-old smiled and went back to work.
 
 The words so struck the parents so that they were speechless. Then tears
 started to stream down their cheeks. Though no word was spoken, both knew what
 must be done.
 
 That evening the husband took Grandfather’s hand and gently led him back to
 the family table. For the remainder of his days he ate
 every meal with the family. And for some reason, neither husband nor wife
 seemed to care any longer when a fork was dropped, milk spilled, or the
 tablecloth soiled.
 
 On a positive note, I’ve learned that, no matter what happens, how bad it
 seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.
 
 I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles
 three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.
 
 I’ve learned that, regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll
 miss them when they’re gone from your life.
 
 I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.”
 
 I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.
 
  I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both
 hands. You need to be able to throw something back.
 
 I’ve learned that if you pursue happiness, it will elude you. But, if you
 focus on your family, your friends, the needs of others, your work and doing the
 very best you can, happiness will find you.
 
 I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually
 make the right decision.
 
 I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one.
 
 I’ve learned that every day, you should reach out and touch someone.
 
 People love that human touch—holding hands, a warm hug, or just a friendly
 pat on the back.
 
 I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn.
 
 I’ve learned that you should pass this on to everyone you care about.

Subject: Food For Thought!

The 92-year-old, petite, well-poised and proud lady, who is fully dressed each morning by eight o'clock, with her hair fashionably coifed and makeup perfectly applied, even though she is legally blind, moved to a nursing home today.   Her husband of 70 years recently passed away, making the move necessary.   After many hours of waiting patiently in the lobby of the nursing home, she smiled sweetly when told her room was ready.   As she maneuvered her walker to the elevator, I provided a visual description of her tiny room, including the eyelet sheets that had been hung on her window. "I love it," she stated with the enthusiasm of an eight-year-old having just been presented with a new puppy.   "Mrs.. Jones, you haven't seen the room .... just wait." "That doesn't have anything to do with it," she replied. "Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time. Whether I like my room or not doesn't depend on how the furniture is arranged... it's how I arrange my mind. I already decided to love it . "It's a decision I make every morning when I wake up. I have a choice; I can spend the day in bed recounting the difficulty I have with the parts of my body that no longer work, or get out of bed and be thankful for the ones that do. Each day is a gift, and as long as my eyes open I'll focus on the new day and all the happy memories I've stored away ... just for this time in my life. Old age is like a bank account ... you withdraw from what you've put in. So, my advice to you would be to deposit a lot of happiness in the bank account of memories. Thank you for your part in filling my Memory bank. I am still depositing. Remember the five simple rules to be happy:  

1. Free your heart from hatred. 2. Free your mind from worries. 3. Live simply. 4. Give more. 5. Expect less.

A Senoir man was walking down the street when he was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking older homeless man who asked him for a couple of dollars for a Christmas dinner.

  The man took out his wallet, extracted ten dollars and asked, "If I give you this money, will you buy some beer with it instead? "No, I had to stop drinking years ago," the homeless man replied.

 "Will you use it to gamble instead of buying food?" the man asked.  "No, I don't gamble," the homeless man said. "I need everything I can get just to stay alive."

  "Will you spend it on greens fees at a golf course instead of food?"the man asked. "Are you NUTS!" replied the homeless man. "I haven't played golf in 20 years!"

"Will you spend the money on a woman in the red light district instead of food?" the man asked."What disease would I get for ten lousy bucks?!!" exclaimed the homeless man.
 
"Well," said the Senior man, "I'm not going to give you the money. Instead, I'm going to take you home for a terrific Christmas dinner cooked by my wife."

  The older homeless man was astounded. "Won't your wife be furious with you for doing that? I know I'm dirty, and I probably smell pretty disgusting."
 

The Senior man replied, "That's okay. I want her to see what a man looks like who's given up beer, gambling, golf, and sex."

Managed it ?
Scroll down only after you have counted them, okay?





How many ? 3?

Wrong, there are 6 !!--no joke.

Read it again.

The reasoning behind is further down.



The brain cannot process "OF".

Incredible or what ? Go back and look again!!

Anyone who counts all 6 "F's" on the first go is a genius.
Three is normal, four is quite rare.

NO NURSING HOME FOR ME!

With the average cost for a Nursing Home reaching $188.00 per
day, there is a better way to spend our savings, when we get old &
feeble. I have already checked on reservations at the Holiday Inn for a combined long term stay discount and a senior discount. It comes to only $49.23 per night. That leaves $138.77 a day for: Breakfast, lunch and dinner in any restaurant I want, or room service. Laundry, gratuities and special TV movies. Plus, they provide a swimming pool, a workout room, a lounge, washer, dryer,etc.

 Most have free toothpaste and razors, and all have free shampoo and soap. They treat you like a customer, not a patient. $5 worth of
tips a day will have the entire staff scrambling to help you.. There is city Bus stop out front, and seniors ride free. The Handicap bus will also pick you up (if you fake a decent limp). To meet other nice people, call a Church bus on Sundays.

 For a change of scenery, take the Airport shuttle Bus and eat at one of the nice restaurants there. While you’re at the airport, fly somewhere. Otherwise the cash keeps building up. It takes months to get into decent nursing homes. Holiday Inn will take your reservation today. And - you are not stuck in one place forever, you can move from Inn to Inn, or even from city to city.

 Want to see Hawaii? They have a Holiday Inn there too.. TV broken? Light bulbs need changing? Need a mattress replaced? No problem. They fix everything, and apologize for the inconvenience. . The Inn has a night security person and daily room service.

The maid checks to see if you are OK. If not, they will call the undertaker or an ambulance. If you fall and break a hip, Medicare will pay for the hip, and Holiday Inn will upgrade you to a suite for the rest of your life . And no worries about visits from family. They will always be glad to find you, and will probably check in for a few days mini-vacation. The grand kids can use the pool. What more can you ask for? So when I reach the Golden age, I’ll face it with a grin- Just forward all my email to: me@Holiday_Inn!

And I have long term care insurance.

Subject: WHEN I EARN MY RETARDMENT.

 
 
WHEN I EARN MY RETARDMENT...
(Even if you're not a grandparent you will enjoy this)
 
A teacher asked her young pupils how they spent their vacation.  One child wrote the following:
 
We always spent our vacation with Grandma and Grandpa.  They used to live here in a big, brick house, but Grandpa got retarded and they moved to Florida and now they live in a place with a lot of other retarded people.
 
They live in a tin box and have rocks painted green to look like grass.  They ride around on big tricycles and wear name tags because they don't know who they are anymore.
 
They go to a building called a wrecked center, but they must have got it fixed because it is all right now.  They play games there and do exercises there, but they don't do them very well.
 
There is a swimming pool too, but they all jump up and down in it with their hats on.  I guess they don't know how to swim.
 
At their gate there is a dollhouse with a little old man sitting in it.  He watches all day so nobody can escape.  Sometimes they sneak out.  Then they go cruising in their golf carts.
 
My Grandma used to bake cookies and stuff, but I guess she forgot how.  Nobody there cooks, they just eat out.  And they eat the same thing every night: Early Birds.
 
Some of the people can't get past the man in the dollhouse to go out, so the ones who get out bring food back to the wrecked center and call it pot luck.
 
My Grandma says Grandpa worked all his life to earn his retardment and says I should work hard so I can be retarded one day, too.
 
When I earn my retardment I want to be the man in the dollhouse.  Then I will let people out so they can visit their grandchildren.

This 90 year old man went to the doctor and told the doctor that he wants his sex life lowered. The doctor looks at him and asked him how old he is. The man replied "I am 90 years old." The doctor said that's ridiculous for a man of your age to ask that his sex life be lowered. It's all in your head. The man replied "I know that's why I want it lowered." -- thanks to F Booher
