I believe when we really think about it we will find that the key to gracefully aging is a good sense of humor. It works for me!!!

You know your getting old when it takes you five minutes to realize that the stranger looking back at you in the mirror is you.

As I said earlier, I do not use a mirror. After my hair cut I had to check to see if there was really that much white in my hair.

Dad belonged to a "Senior Activist" group in the Phoenix area of Az. They protested the high cost of greeting cards, breakfast cereal and more. They also knew where all the cheap meals in the area were and they moved around in caravans at meal time. Spaghetti night at a Catholic Church was really popular as they served wine with the meal.

I used to call them the "Grey Panthers" as they were rather militant in things financial. Now I guess maybe I am one!

I thought about it and have come to the conclusion that "anything" panthers could get you a lot of unwanted Govt. attention

A wealthy old Gentleman decides to go on a hunting safari inAfrica , taking his faithful, elderly Jack Russell dog named Killer, along for the company.

One day the old Jack Russell starts chasing rabbits and before long, discovers that he's lost. Wandering about, he notices a leopar d heading rapidly in his direction with the intention of having lunch.

The old Jack Russell thinks, 'Oh, oh! I'm in deep doo-doo now!' Noticing some bones on the ground close by, he immediately settles down to chew on the bones with his back to the approaching cat. Just as the leopard is about to leap, the old Jack Russell exclaims loudly, 'Boy, that was one delicious leopard! I wonder if there are any more around here?'

Hearing this, the young leopard halts his attack in mid-strike, a look of terror comes over him and he slinks away into the trees. 'Whew!', says the leopard, 'That was close! That old Jack Russell nearly had me!'

Meanwhile, a monkey who had been watchin g the whole scene from a nearby tree, figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for protection from the leopard. So off he goes, but the old Jack Russel l sees him heading after the leopard with great speed, and figures that something must be up.

The monkey soon catches up with the leopard, spills the beans and strikes a deal for himself with the leopard.

The young leopard is furious at being made a fool of and says, 'Here, monkey, hop on my back and see what's going to happen to that conniving canine!

Now, the old Jack Russell sees the leopard coming with the monkey on his back and thinks, 'What am I going to do now?', but instead of running, the dog sits down with his back to his attackers, pretending he hasn't seen them yet, and just when they get close enough to hear, the old Jack Russell says...
'Where's that monkey? I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another leopard!

Moral of this story....

Don't mess with the old dogs...age and skill will always overcome youth and treachery! Bull and brilliance only come with age and experience.

A married couple, in their early 60's, was celebrating their 44 th
wedding anniversary at a quiet, romantic little restaurant. Suddenly,
a tiny beautiful Fairy appeared on their table.

She said: 'For being such an exemplary married couple and especially
at this time, I will grant you each a wish.'
'Oh, said the wife, I want to travel around the World with my darling husband'.

The fairy waved her magic wand; and - poof! - two tickets for the
Queen Mary II luxury liner and Ten Thousand Dollars appeared in her
hands.Then it was the husband's turn. He thought for a minute and
said:'Well, this is all very romantic, but an opportunity like this
will never come again, So I'm going with my mind and not my heart.

'I'm sorry my love, but my wish is to have a wife 30 years younger than me.'
The wife and the Fairy were shocked and disappointed. But a wish is a
wish. So, the Fairy waved her magic wand, and - Poof! - the husband
became 92 years old...

The Moral of the story...
Men who are ungrateful should remember... Fairies are Female...

Attitude is everything!

I was taking my mother to see my son's house one day and stopping at a red light a man on a motorcycle pulled up beside us.

My mother studied him and the motorcycle for a few minutes then replied, "That is something I haven't tried yet! She was 80 years old at the time.

flora;

I agree it is all in the attitude. Trouble is I have to look for mine every morning as it seems to hide from me.

I agree that attitude toward aging is important. Most people ask me why I haven't retired. My answer has been when I get old enough, I'll be 66 in January. I love to work, and find that I am still being sought out by other departments for instructor positions. Your only as old as you let yourself feel.
