A few chuckles fer ya...

While awaiting the prednisone to do its thing, I've been mulling the news and thoughts and blog stuff. With eyes to the sky I want to thank Patrick Swayze for his great movies like "Ghost" and "Dirty Dancing"...we'll miss ya! Too, I was actually pleased to read about Kanye West's appearance on the new, earlier Jay Leno show (still too late for me, which is a point made below!) and read his seemingly sincere remorse over his MTV Awards gaffe with Taylor Swift. Maybe Kanye could have a little talk with Serena Williams about humility...maybe hell could freeze over at the same time...

So, straight from an email forwarded to me yesterday, I present to you a list for those 'wiser' readers. Even if you're not yet at the half-century mark, some of these get their ball rolling before that magic number (personal experience! HA!)



Someone had to remind me, so I'm reminding you too. Don't laugh.....it is all true...these are perks of reaching 50 or being over 60 and heading towards 70!+

Kidnappers are not very interested in you.

In a hostage situation you are likely to be released first.

No one expects you to run--anywhere. !!!

People call at 9 pm and ask, did I wake you?

People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.

There is nothing left to learn the hard way.

Things you buy now won't wear out.

You can eat supper at 4 pm.

Some can live without sex, but none can live without their glasses.

Likewise, you're thankful this is in large type.

You get into heated arguments about pension plans.

You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.

You quit trying to hold your stomach in no matter who walks into the room.

You sing along with elevator music.

Your eyes won't get much worse.

Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.

Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the National Weather Service.

Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either.

Your supply of brain cells is finally down to a manageable size.

You can't remember what you had for dinner last night.

And Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

This is too true. I will hit the 1/2 century mark by years end. I especially like the one about speed limits (I actually stopped for a yellow light today!).

You and I are very close in age - same for me! The 'run' anywhere (NOT!) and 'asleep by 9p'(ALWAYS!) were my faves!

ALL of those quips are great!
