    Do you think I'll live to be 80?

    I recently picked a new primary care physician. After two visits and exhaustive lab tests, he said I was doing "fairly well" for my age.

    A little concerned about that comment, I couldn't resist asking him, "Do you think I'll live to be 80?"

    He asked, "Do you smoke tobacco or drink alcoholic beverages?"

    "Oh no," I replied. "I'm not doing drugs, either."

    Then he asked, "Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?"

    I said, "No, my other doctor said that all red meat is very unhealthy!"

    "Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, sailing, hiking,
    or bicycling?"

    "No, I don't," I said.

    He asked, "Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?"

    "No," I said. "I don't do any of those things."

    He looked at me sorta funny and said, "Then why do you give a crap?"

    What's funny is I was reading this on my lap top, so only the top part of the message was showing........ As I read the answers (not knowing it was a joke), my thought was you might make 80, but it wasn't living!! And then I scrolled down!

    Like that Bumper - has a measure of truth within

    Can't help thinking of a health freak I knew - vegetarian, no drink, no smoke (probably no sex on his horizon) - paranoid to the n'th degree. But - he had to have been the most unfit looking dude I'd ever seen and caught colds for a passtime!!!

    He may live to make a centegenarian but - oh how boring (atchoo!)

    Well, I'm up for all but the drugs so, although I would like to think I will live until I'm 80, it's probably not in the cards, lol. My Dad, who is now 81 told me the other day that if he knew he was going to live to be 80 he would have taken better care of himself. All and all, he is pretty spry for 81....

    Talking Funny Bumper

    This One Just In For You Guys...Hot Off The Joke Press.

    Dick Cheney and George W. Bush were having breakfast at the White House.

    The attractive waitress asks Cheney what he would like, and he
    replies, "I'd like a bowl of oatmeal and some fruit."

    "And what can I get for you, Mr. President?"

    George W. replies with his trademark wink and slight grin,
    "How about a quickie this morning?"

    "Why, Mr. President!" the waitress exclaims "How rude!"

    As the waitress storms away, Cheney leans over to Bush and
    whispers......... "It's pronounced 'quiche'."
