Someone had to remind me

This was sent to me by BBQ buddy Mark and since most of it is true for me, I decided to let you see if any apply to you.

Someone had to remind me, so I'm reminding you, too.  Don't laugh....It is all true!

Perks of reaching 50 or being over 60 and heading towards 70 or beyond!

1. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.

2. In a hostage situation, you are likely to be released first.

3. No one expects you to run anywhere.

4. People call at 9 PM (or 9 AM ) and ask, 'Did I wake you?'

5. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.

6. There is nothing left to learn the hard way.

7. Things you buy now won't wear out.

8. You can eat supper at 4 PM.

9. You can live without sex but not your glasses.

10. You get into heated arguments about pension plans.

11. You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.

12. You quit trying to hold your stomach in no matter who walks into the room.

13. You sing along with elevator music.

14. Your eyes won't get much worse.

15. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.

16. Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the national weather service.

17. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either.

18. Your supply of brain cells is finally down to a manageable size.

19. You can't remember who sent you this list.

And you notice these are all in big print for your convenience.

Forward this to everyone you can remember right now!

AND THE MOST IMPORTANT THING: NEVER, NEVER,NEVER, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill, and a laxative on the same night!

"Good friends are like stars...You don't always see them, but you know they are always there.

  1. Haha this is pretty awesome. Makes me kind of wish I was heading towards 60...

  2. Larry, Your lead or header photo is just great! The colors really popped for us down here in East Tennessee this year... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  3. These are pretty darn funny. Unfortunately I have a good friend (younger) who teases us about going to bed early. We just made dinner reservations for this upcoming Saturday at 6:00 .. when I called her last night to let her know the time, her reply was "are you sure that's not too late?" She just thinks she's sooooooo funny. :)

  4. Hey Larry, Dave here, Year on the Grill...

    And I do think you exaggerate. There were 4 and possibly 5 of those things that do not apply to me.


I appreciate and enjoy your comments
