Senior citizens are constantly being criticized for every conceivable
deficiency of the modern world, real or imaginary. We know we take
responsibility for all we have done and do not blame others.
HOWEVER, upon reflection, we would like to point out that it was
the senior citizens who took:
out of music,
The pride out of appearance,
out of driving,
out of love,
out of marriage,
out of parenthood,
out of the family,
out of education,
out of patriotism,
The nativity scene out of cities,
out of behavior,
out of language,
out of employment,
out of spending,
out of achievement, or,
out of government and school.
And we certainly are
the ones who eliminated
from personal relationships and interactions with others!!
And, we do understand the meaning of patriotism,
and remember those who have fought and died for our country.
Does anyone under the age of 50 know the
lyrics to the Star Spangled Banner?
What about the last verse of
My Country 'tis of Thee?
"Our father's God to thee,
Author of liberty,
To Thee we sing.
Long may our land be bright,
With freedom's Holy light.
Protect us by Thy might,
Great God our King."
at the Seniors with tears in their eyes and pride in their hearts as they stand
at attention with their hands over their hearts!
YES, I'M A SENIOR CITIZEN!
I'm the life of the party...... even if it
lasts until 8 p.m.
I'm very good at opening childproof caps...
with a hammer.
I'm usually interested in going home before I
get to where I am going.
I'm awake many hours before my body allows me
to get up.
I'm smiling all the time because I can't hear a
thing you're saying.
I'm very good at telling stories; over and over
and over and over...
I'm aware that other people's grandchildren are
not nearly as cute as mine.
I'm so cared for -- long term care, eye care,
private care, dental care.
I'm not really grouchy,
I just don't like traffic, waiting, crowds,
, unruly kids, Toyota
commercials, Tom Brokaw, Dan Rather, barking dogs, politicians and a few other
things I can't seem to remember right now.
I'm sure everything I can't
find is in a safe secure place, somewhere.
I'm wrinkled, saggy, lumpy,
and that's just my left leg.
I'm having trouble remembering simple words
I'm beginning to realize that aging is not for
I'm sure they are making adults much younger these
days, and when did they let kids become policemen?
I'm wondering, if you're only as old as you
feel, how could I be alive at 150?
And, how can my kids be older
than I feel sometimes?
I'm a walking storeroom of facts..... I've
just lost the key to the storeroom door.
Yes, I'm a SENIOR CITIZEN and I think I
am having the time of my life!
Now if I could only remember who sent
this to me, I wouldn't send it back to them, but I would send it to many more!
