stoirmeil;

I had a Sudanese family living in the building about 6 years ago and the kids called me Amu, meaning Uncle. The little Mexican kids sometimes call me Abuelo (sp) meaning Grampa. I kind of like that also as I don't have any Grandkids yet.

My email friends are at it again! This is good for a chuckle.....

Some of the artists of the 60's are revising their hits with new lyrics to accommodate aging baby boomers.

They include:

Bobby Darin ---
Splish, Splash, I Was Havin' a Flash.

Herman's Hermits ---
Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Walker .

Ringo Starr ---
I Get By With a Little Help From Depends.


The Bee Gees -- -
How Can You Mend a Broken Hip.

Roberta Flack---
The First Time Ever I Forgot Your Face.

Johnny Nash ---
I Can't See Clearly Now.

Paul Simon---
Fifty Ways to Lose Your Liver

The Commodores ---
Once, Twice, Three Times to the Bathroom.

Marvin Gaye ---
Heard It Through the Grape Nuts.

Procol Harem---
A Whiter Shade of Hair.

Leo Sayer ---
You Make Me Feel Like Napping.

The Temptations ---
Papa's Got a Kidney Stone.

Abba---
Denture Queen.

Tony Orlando ---
Knock 3 Times On The Ceiling If You Hear Me Fall.


Helen Reddy ---

I Am Woman, Hear Me Snore.

Leslie Gore---

It's My Procedure, and I'll Cry If I Want To.

And Last but NOT least
Willie Nelson ---

On the Commode Again



--------------------
The Scots of course insist that the pipes produce music. But the point is after all not too important. For those who love them, the pipes can evoke more vividly than any other instrument, high emotion, they can inspire valor, and tell of tragic tales of battles long ago. They can call forth merriment or sentiment. It does not matter what the sound is called, those who are deaf to its merits would not understand anyway.

So what exactly falls under the title of "Old Fart"...yes to some I am a Senior Citizen and that is no big deal. gotta stay young at heart and children and grandchildren help with that!
As one old fart to another; you're only as old as you think you are!

"Age is just a number"!

I feel like 35, but wake up some mornings with my knees grumbling at me "nooo, you're not 35 any more kiddo"... rolleyes.gif But even with some health issues blooming in these 50+ years I still enjoy each day and strive to make the best of them all. Since we moved to the country I scowl less, grumble less and feel less tension so I suspect that's going to help me live longer.

The suburbs can wear ya down! Glad we got out.

Who looks forward to the day when she has grandchildren and they call her "Granny"!!

"All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king..."

Siobhan Blues;

Personally I describe an "Old Fart" as some one who has reach their Golden years of Senior Citizenship but has the ( pick your preference) to tell the world, politely of course, to "STICK IT IN THEIR EAR" when the need arises. One must keep their decorum after all.

You could follow my late father-in-law's example. He had his grand kids call him "Uncle". Personally, I kinda like grandpa. Besides, grandkids are one of the best forms of revenge for your own kids' "issues".

I couldn't wait to hear the words Grandma, now I hear it every Wednesday night as I get too babysit 2 (ages 6 and 3) them.Oh that is so much fun.They have learned No Treat unless you eat ALL of your dinner and I know your mother won't let you do that because I would never let her do that! Can't pull that one off on this grandma. Then I have 2 other grandsons 16 and 11 who the 16 year old thinks I'm cool LOL and the 11 comes and stays sometimes with me on Friday night and we watch Ghost Adventures and Most Haunted. Then I will have another grandson come this Summer. I never feel as if I am getting old they keep so Young and I love them for that.I will never get tired of hearing the words GRANDMA!!

Harlot;

How I envy you. I will never hear myself being called Grampa by my own Grandkids. My oldest is 39 this year and no sign of kids. My youngest attitude is and I quote "If I want a kid, Dad I'll buy one."Guess I'll have to wait till the next time around.

I dearly love all of my grand children but the one who is priceless is the youngest. At almost three she is impossible to keep up with her. She has sparkling blue eyes, blond hair and a cute little sly smile that says, you don't know what I am going to do. My daughter talks to her in grown up language (with limits) and you never know what she is going to say! As I will not likely be around to tell her the things she said, I have taken to carrying a digital recorder. I will eventually put it all on a CD.

Slàinte,

My two children are grown and married now, the son is 26 & married for a couple of years (he and his wife are in their last year or so of college so no immediate plans to start a family) and daughter has been married almost 2 years (says they want a family some day). I suspect daughter will be the first to have children but never can tell!

It would be so nice to have grandchildren, and if I ever do I'll insist on being called Granny! LOVE that. And I already have reading glasses perched on the end of my nose so I look it too.

Some "Senior" personal ads seen in Florida newspapers:

(Who says seniors don't have a sense of humor?)

FOXY LADY:
Sexy, fashion-conscious blue-haired beauty,
80's, slim, 5'4" (used to be 5'6"),
searching for sharp-looking, sharp-dressing companion.
Matching white shoes and belt a plus.

LONG-TERM COMMITMENT:
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.

SERENITY NOW:
I am into solitude, long walks, sunrises, the ocean, yoga and meditation.
If you are the silent type, let's get together,
take our hearing aids out and enjoy quiet times.

WINNING SMILE:
Active grandmother with original teeth seeking a dedicated flosser
to share rare steaks, corn on the cob and caramel candy.

BEATLES OR STONES?
I still like to rock, still like to cruise in my Camaro on Saturday
nights and still like to play the guitar. If you were a groovy chick,
or are now a groovy hen, let's get together and listen to my eight-track tapes.

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

MINT CONDITION:
Male, 1932, high mileage, good condition, some hair,
many new parts including hip, knee, cornea, valves.
Isn't in running condition, but walks well.

flora & Valpal;

I liked those personals. Maybe I should try that and put an add in the paper.

Wanted;

Someone who can cozy up to a short (5'7), slightly overweight (90kg) almost bald, not as handsome as he thinks he is old dreamer who wears classes, lost half his teeth, is slightly deaf and walks with a bit of a limb, also don't got no money.. Lives in Canada, hates snow and thinks women are the greatest invention since sliced Bread. Applicants must be intelligent. Dumb Blondes need not apply.

Ladies do you think that would go over?
