One Secret To Long Life...!
Many activities can help to give you a long and healthy life!
Here is just one example of one of those activities for you to ponder!
An 80-year-old man went to the doctor for a check-up and the doctor was amazed at what good shape the guy was in. The doctor asked, "To what do you attribute your good health?" The old timer said, "I'm a turkey hunter and that's why I'm in such good shape. I'm up well before daylight and out chasing turkeys up and down the mountains."
The doctor said, "Well, I'm sure that helps, but there's got to be more to it. How old was your dad when he died?" The old timer said, "Who said my dad's dead?" The doctor said, "You mean you're 80 years old and your dad's still alive? How old is he?" The old timer said, "He's 100 yrs old and, in fact, he hunted turkey with me this morning, and that's why he's still alive... he's a turkey hunter."
The doctor said, "Well, that's great, but I'm sure there's more to it. How about your dad's dad? How old was he when he died?" The old timer said, "Who said my grandpa's dead?" The doctor said, "You mean you're 80 years old and your grandfather's still living! How old is he?" The old timer said, "He's 118 yrs old."
The doctor was getting frustrated at this point and said, "I guess he went turkey hunting with you this morning too?" The old timer said, "No... Grandpa couldn't go this morning because he's getting married tonight." The Doctor said in amazement, "Married?! Why would a 118-year-old guy want to get married?"
The old timer said, "Who said he wants to?"
The moral? Never give up doing the things that make you happy, just because of the date on the calendar! If your head says you can't do it, but your heart says you can...listen to your heart!
Oh, and to your doctor, of course!
Let's have some coffee in the kitchen, OK?
