Most of you folks aren't anywhere near old enough for this to apply to you yet..........but [hopefully] you will be some day in the far distant future.....

How are you, my friend?

I'm fine. How are you?
 
There's nothing the matter with me,
I'm just as healthy as can be,
I have arthritis in both knees,
And when I talk, I talk with a wheeze.
My pulse is weak, my blood is thin,
But I'm awfully well for the shape I'm in.
 
All my teeth have had to come out,
And my diet I hate to think about.
I'm overweight and I can't get thin,
But I'm awfully well for the shape I'm in.
 
And arch supports I need for my feet.
Or I wouldn't be able to go out in the street.
Sleep is denied me night after night,
But every morning I find I'm all right.
My memory's failing, my head's in a spin.
But I'm awfully well for the shape I'm in.
 
Old age is golden I've heard it said,
But sometimes I wonder, as I go to bed.
With my ears in a drawer, my teeth in a cup,
And my glasses on a shelf, until I get up.
And when sleep dims my eyes, I say to myself,
Is there anything else I should lay on the shelf?
 
The reason I know my Youth has been spent,
Is my get-up-and-go has got-up-and-went!
But really I don't mind, when I think with a grin,
Of all the places my get-up has been.
 
I get up each morning and dust off my wits,
Pick up the paper and read the obits.
If my name is missing, I'm therefore not dead,
So I eat a good breakfast and jump back into bed.

The moral of this as the tale unfolds,
Is that for you and me, who are growing old.
It is better to say "I'm fine" with a grin,
Than to let people know the shape we are in.

I'M FINE!!  HOW ARE YOU?
 
 ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
The clock of life is wound but once, and no man has the power to tell just
when the hands will stop. At late or early hour now is the only time you own.
Live, love, toil with a will, Place no faith in time.
For the clock may soon be still.
-"Easy " Eddy O'Hare

Hello Pat,

Too soon we get old and not smart.   Opssss! I guess at 78 I can

say that with a grin.   I love my life and being above the grass.

Hang in there as it really does get ......!   (LOL)     John

PPS    Loved Pat's  poem or ODE to older Citizens--what ever

comes first!    J

Take another look,  Courtney.  You are not aging AT ALL!!!!!  You just think you are.....!!!!

Pat




Thanks Pat. Sometimes I feel I can relate to all of this. I do feel pretty fabulous at the moment, although a bit tired and sick of studying for exams all the time. I've decided to take summer break and work on establishing myself at work and returning in the fall... Hopefully, this will break some of the tension...


Courtney :)

I've been wearing glasses since the beginning of 4th grade.  Coke Bottle, Anyone??????

Don't sweat it, Shaz.  Nobody any longer cares if you're wearing glasses or not.  So many cool frames out there to choose from these days.....
