    I'm Not Old - I just have more stories to tell.

    http://modernsenior.net/ I found this on a Senior Website, and thought it would make for interesting reading for us MiceChatters who are a bit older than most of you.

    HUMOR:
    THE PERKS OF BEING OVER 50

    • Kidnappers are not very interested in you.
    • In a hostage situation, you are likely to be released first.
    • People call at 8 PM and ask, "Did I wake you?"
    • No one expects you to run into a burning building.
    • Peope no longer view you as a hypochondriac.
    • There's nothing left to learn the hard way.
    • Things you buy now won't wear out.
    • You can eat dinner at 4 p.m.
    • You can live without sex, but not without glasses.
    • You enjoy hearing about other people's operations.
    • You get into a heated argument about pension plans.
    • You have a party and the neighbors don't even realize it.
    • You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.
    • You quit trying to hold your stomach in, no matter who walks into the room.
    • Your eyes won't get much worse.
    • Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.
    • Your joints are more accurate in predicting rain than the National Weather Service.
    • Your secrets are safe with your friends, because they can't remember them either.
    • Your supply of brain cells is finally down to a manageable size.
    • You won't remember where you saw this.
    • I don't remember where I published this.

    Re: I'm Not Old - I just have more stories to tell.

    I admit that I found that on a senior citizen website. Technically, I am not a senior citizen yet, since no Social Security check comes to my house. My husband is about 5 years away from applying for his first Social Security checks.

    I figured, the older of us MiceChatters could have a place to hang out here in the Fun and Games Lounge. I spend most of my time here anyway.

    Come, and talk about an issue, or just talk about your day.

    I like to talk, and I can listen as well.

    I figured you would find this. So much of that is so true. Besides we needed a place to chat. What better place than here, in the Fun and Games Lounge. I'm here most of the time, anyway.

    Re: I'm Not Old - I just have more stories to tell.

    My son has a birthday coming up on Friday. I don't know if I am going to see him, or not. I should get to the store to buy him a card, and if I take it to the post office, perhaps he will get it before Friday.

    It's hard to believe, that I have a 40, almost 41 year old son.

    That's because I got married at 18, and had my son, just before my 20th birthday. The head says I'm young, but the body is saying differently.

    I know that feeling all too well

    I was married at almost 18, was married for 21 years, then we divorced, had my first son at the age of 21

    They didn't have any good cards at the store. I did buy one. I need to call my grandson, and see if his dad is going to be home on Friday. I'd rather deliver, a card, and perhaps buy a cake, than mail the card, and it will be late. Why didn't I plan better?

    Yes, and I don't drive. So perhaps my husband and I might go there in the evening. I wish he would let us take him out to dinner, but he usually says no to that idea. He starts his vacation on Saturday.

    Re: I'm Not Old - I just have more stories to tell.

    My son hates going out to dinner. He will be happy if we come over, and sing, and have cake. One thing about my son, he's low maintenance. He's really good about remembering our birthdays, so I don't want to forget to do something for his.
