    Default Getting old.

    Getting Old is a test of time you don't want to flunk.



    1. I changed my car horn to gunshot sounds. People get out of the way much faster now.



    2. Gone are the days when girls used to cook like their mothers. Now they drink like their fathers.



    3. I didnít make it to the gym today. That makes five years in a row.



    4. I decided to stop calling the bathroom the ďJohnĒ and renamed it the ďJimĒ. I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.



    5. Old age is coming at a really bad time.



    6. When I was a child I thought ďNap TimeĒ was a punishment. Now, as a grownup, it feels like a small vacation.



    7. The biggest lie I tell myself is ĒI don't need to write that down, I'll remember it."



    8. I donít have gray hair; I have "wisdom highlights"! Iím just very wise.



    9. If God wanted me to touch my toes, He wouldíve put them on my knees



    10. Last year I joined a support group for procrastinators. We havenít met yet.



    11. Why do I have to press one for English when youíre just going to transfer me to someone I can't understand anyway?



    12. Of course I talk to myself. Sometimes I need expert advice.



    13. At my age ďGetting lucky" means walking into a room and remembering what I came in there for.



    14. Actually I'm not complaining because I am a Senager. (Senior teenager) I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only 60 years later. I donít have to go to school or work. I get an allowance every month. I have my own pad. I donít have a curfew. I have a driverís license and my own car. The people I hang around with are not scared of getting pregnant. And I donít have acne. Life is great.

    Number 11, a sign of the times I fear.

    Here inOz the best language you can attempt to learn is Phillipino as no matter who you call for help or advice a Philipino will reply.

    Grama's laughing out loud ∑

    An elderly 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 lungs, “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 threat. 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 she realized why. It was for the same reason she had wondered why there was a football, a Frisbee and two 12-packs of beer 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 a large handgun.
    No charges were filed.
    The moral of the story?
    If you’re going to have a senior moment… make it memorable.

    True. A few weeks ago I was in the local RSL Club when my wife spotted that I was wearing my bedroom slippers, I got roundly chastised and so I should have been. Yesterday as we were going into the Club i noticed my wife had her bedroom slippers on, I pointed down, and said, "What's this then"? She said, "My feet were sore, so there." Boy I wish I was as quick on the uptake.

    #3 John here we have east Indian's answering calls.
    Once I said to on of them. Get me someone who speaks English.
    Next voice I heard was Scottish. Nearly ask for the Indian guy. She was worse than him.

    We have here in Victoria a number of councils who will pass bye laws making it illegal to call any mature person an old grump, and old fart or make reference to their age.
    Me, I am a 16 year old with many years of experience, even put that on forms that ask for age, no on e has ever questioned it./

    Heard on the radio today, that in a few days I will no longer be a senior citizen as when I reach 85, I officially become a frail aged!! Wonder what concessions I will get. Best help I have, due to COvid, is that grog is put directly into cargo space of jam jar at Dan Murphy's.
