This could be a place to relate the pleasure and aggravation of attaining "Senior Citizen" status or as I call myself, an "Old Fart." I am sure there are some funny stories out there and since I started this I will have to remember some!

I hope I did this right.

Hello guys,

Well, if you two call yourselves "Old Fart" at 65 and 66 what is it you'll be calling yourselves in 10 years??? Ancient Old Fart in a wheelchair.gif ????

No, at 65 and 66 you guys are "young farts" it's what's in the heart that counts...right. beer_mug.gif

LOA becoming an "old fartess"... smile.gif

Sometimes life throws you a couple of "curve balls" that add years to your real age. I just keep plodding along and I try to laugh a lot! Were it not for the humor and modern medicine, I would have never made it this far. My favorite saying is "when my time comes, they will have to chase me down and hit me in the back of the head with an axe!" It is rather crude but shows my determination.

As new pains appear, I can remember when I hurt "that" 25 or 30 years ago. We really do pay for what we did in our younger years.

I will eventually have some of the age related comments people have made to me ready to post here.

As I got older, I got the common "middle age spread." At one time I cast a substantial shadow. I had surgery and was being dismissed but there was a problem. They could not locate a wheel chair. I offered to walk but that was against their rules. Finally they borrowed the personal wheel chair from another patient. It was a snug fit but after a pleasant ride down halls and elevators we arrived out front at my transportation. I stood up and the wheel chair came with me. My butt was stuck in it and to complicate things I had a check book in one back pocket and my wallet in the other. Both then hung up on the arm rests. I am standing there with a wheel chair swinging around behind me, my daughter hiding on the other side of the car and the nurse doubled over laughing and trying to apologize at the same time. When I finally got loose I told the nurse (jokingly) "you can laugh now but see what you have to look forward to. A lot of people in front of the hospital got not only a good laugh but a good story to tell too.

Do you have to be really old to post in this thread or is the fact that the AARP has been sending you letters telling you that you're qualified to join adequate? wheelchair.gif

I'm only 29 so I don't think I really qualify (this month I'll celebrate the 24th anniversary of that birthday). angel_not.gif

I'm not even thinking of "old" until I hit 65 -- got a good few years to go yet.

Did you hear about the little old lady who took Carter's Little Liver Pills every day for 80 years, and when she died they had to beat her liver to death with a stick? smile.gif

I should have stated at the beginning, you do not have to be old, Just have an opinion on aging. I knew a lady at least ten years younger than me who announced that she would never get old. She would not allow it! I thought that was a fantastic attitude. (she was "dating" a man 14 yars younger than she was) Could be that is the way to stay young.

You know…someone once told me that nothing smelled worse than an old fart, except for one older.

My dad was always 29 right up til the end. He always told me to pick the age you liked the best and stay with it. Even when I turned 29 we went out and had a beer together what fun that was. biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif
