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.
BUT, upon reflection,
we would like to point out that it was NOT the
senior citizens who took
the melody out of music,
out of appearance
the romance out of love
the commitment out of marriage
the responsibility out of
the togetherness out of the family
the learning out of education
the service out of patriotism,
the religion out of school,
the Golden Rule from rulers,
the nativity scene out of cities,
out of behavior,
the refinement out of language,
the dedication out of employment,
the prudence out
of spending, or
the ambition out of achievement.
....and we certainly are NOT the ones who eliminated patience
from personal relationships and interactions with others!!
Does anyone under the age of 50
know the lyrics to the National Anthem?
Just look at the seniors with tears in their eyes and pride in their
as they stand at attention with their hand over their hearts!
Remember....Inside every older person is a younger person
what the heck happened!
YES, I'M A SENIOR CITIZEN! I'm the life of the party...even if it
until 8:20 pm.
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
I'm very good at telling stories; over and over and over and
I'm aware that other people's grandchildren are not as cute as
I'm so cared for -- long term
care, eye care, private care, dental
I'm not grouchy, I just don't like traffic, waiting, crowds,
I'm sure everything I can't find is in a secure place.
I'm wrinkled, saggy, lumpy, and that's just my left leg.
I'm having trouble remembering simple words like
I'm realizing that aging is not for wimps.
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
I'm a walking storeroom of facts.....I've just lost the key
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 would send it to
Have I already sent this to you?
