Short Post About Age...!

Sometimes a thought can be best explained by a single picture.

I think this picture pretty much resonates with all of us that are of a certain age, don't you?


One picture sometimes really is worth a thousand words! Pretty much says it all!

Coffee on the patio this morning. We can compare our creaking joints!

Ha! Ha! I need BOTH kinds!!
Creaking joints?? Yup - all of 'em!
I'll bring apple pie for all!

ain't for city gals said...

More ways than one! Of all the things that happen when we get old I miss my eyesight the most...hate always having to look for my glasses!

Momlady said...

I miss my mind the most. Sometimes it seems like it's made of Swiss cheese with lots of holes. You know, you go to say a word and it just doesn't come. Or a name, or.....

Sixbears said...

I'll drink to that!

Bubba -
Don't you just love it! I'll trade red for white with anyone waiting 'round the table. I think we can all tell what color is in the glass without our reading glasses, right?

Good post, happy morning, and big hugs -

More and more do I have to place my hand on my knee when rising from the floor or getting off the car (much easier in my pickup), a glass of good old Granny's 'Reamatiz medicine' sounds just like the thing to bring the day to an end.

So true; I love it. I have to wear tri-focals and hate it. And where my mind went; someone please find it and return it to me. The aches and pains, wrinkles and flabby skin all go with getting older. So I say let's raise a glass or two of wine and forget about age. :)

JOJO said...

If wine didn't give me brain damage I would drink plenty. So just pass the pot please I guess I will just have another cup of nice warm coffee. Oh and some of Phyllis's pie. Thanks Phyllis

Of all ther things I have lost, I miss my mind the most, HOWEVER, glasses are a close second.

Hey Phyllis...
Apple pie seems to be one of my favorites about now!

Trouble is, I might forget that tomorrow and have to start taste testing all over again to make sure!

Thanks for coming over today, my friend!


Hey Ain't...
Since I had the cataract surgery, I don't need the regular kind! However, the ones in the picture will always be my friends, I think!

Thanks for dropping in!


Hey Momlady...
I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one that happens to!

Getting old is a bummer, but it sure beats the alternative!

Thanks so much for dropping in today!


Hey Sixbears...
We used to have a saying..."I'll even drink to a flat tire!"

Any reason will do sometimes!

Thanks, my friend, for coming over today!


Hey Sis...
I used to be particular about my wine, but now my favorite is whatever is on hand!

I'd say that it goes straight to my head, but since that seems to be mostly empty lately, I reckon that's OK!

Many thanks for the support and for coming by this morning!


Hey Anon 7:29...
Like Sixbears said "I'll drink to that!"

Moving slow is better than not moving at all, I reckon!

Thanks for dropping by today!


Hey Linda...
Forgetting about it shouldn't be a problem, since I seem to forget everything else!

You know I'll remember all my friends though. Thanks for coming over this morning!


Hey JoJo...
Yep, Phyllis does a great job on those pies, let me tell ya!

Thanks, sweetie, for coming over this morning!


Hey Bob...
Sometimes my memory bank is like a post it note with no glue!

I make notes to myself, then lose the note!

Every day is a new adventure, that's for sure!

Thanks for coming over today!

Don't get me started on what I miss most. Now, what was the question?

Flier389 said...

I need several pairs of glasses. I have them all around the house. So, as long as I remember where my house is, I can still read things when I need to.
And, I'm all for apple pie! Just melt a little cheese on it, please.

HermitJim said...

Hey Dizzy...
I'm thinking that maybe I really don't want to know!

Question? There was a question?

Thanks, buddy, for coming by today!


Hey Flier389...
Only kind I need anymore is the kind in the picture!

Unexpected side effect of my cataract surgery! It corrected my vision...how cool is that?

Many thanks for coming by today!

Kelle said...

I find that even at my age(a young 47yrs old *wink*) that I need glasses, LOL! This whole world is calling out of focus and glasses( like pictured) make things much cleared, for some odd reason*wink* LOL!!!

Blessings,
Kelle

It is also of special note that these loans tend to carry slightly higher interest rates because of their short terms and lack of credit screening. Your faxes are accessible anywhere, anytime - wherever you have access to the Internet and these days that's just about everywhere. There is also fax broadcasting which lets a company quickly send a single fax to a large number of recipients with one click. You can examine out the high quality of your faxes and see for your self what kind of assist a provider has how effectively do they reply to any challenges that you might encounter? Can you attain them 24/7? Since you receive and send faxes through your email system and the Internet you can access them anywhere, anytime.
