    old-timers

    Three elderly ladies were sitting at a table having tea. They were complaining about their aging. First Lady says, "i think i'm getting old-timers disease, I get up to get something out of the refridgerator and when I open the door, I forget what I wanted." The second one, not to be outdone said, "you think that's bad, when I go upstairs to get something, I get half-way up the steps and forget why I am even going upstairs." The third lady had no problems and was bragging about it, saying, "I have no old-timers, I tell you. I am fit as a fiddle, do the crossword puzzles, never forget where I am going or what I want when I get there, knock on wood (as she raps her knuckles against the table top 3 times), Oh my, now was that the front door or the back door?"

    Sojourner, I know the feeling; age didn't sneak up on me, it ran over me at full speed!

    It is really bad when you are talking to someone and say,"now, What was I saying?"

    I took a real age test a while back they told me was 55, the problem is I'm only in my early 30's, I guess I shouldn't have answered the questions about yelling those stupid hippies and complaining about those commies and how loud teenager music is. I think it skewd the results

    Yeah and the problem is I'm still laying in the road trying to remember what the heck hit me!

    Having been run over by that same truck I can say: If I had known that I was going to live this long I would have taken better care of my body.

    Having a wife that's 10 yrs younger than me sometimes helps to give me an idea if I'm old/getting old . We will talk on subjects of the past and there are many times I get the "deer in the headlights" look .Now I catch myself doing what the"old guys" would do to me growing up , like yelling at passing cars to slow down (damn teenagers) , trying to explain why things were better when I was young , etc etc .

    I had to have my right shouilder rebuilt several years ago. The surgeon was a friend. I said "Hey, Doc, why not just use all this medical science and just remove my brain, clone my body and drop it in my new 20 year old body. With my experience I'll treat it a whole lot better!" Trouble is he DOES know me and told me he knew me better than that. Figured I make up for lost time and treat it worse. Dang......

    I can totally relate here. My wife is 13 years my junior. My wife's mother is closer to my age than my wife is. But what I don't understand is if she's that much younger than me... why am I so much more immature than she is.
