I'm going to post some of my favorite lines about getting old.

1. Health insurance companys don't call me anymore.

2. The pharmacist has become your new best friend.

3. I wake up, looking like your driver's license picture.

4. Happy hour is a nap.

5. You have too much room in the house and not enough in the medicine cabinet.

6. You read more and remember less.

7. I get mail from AARP.

8. Funeral homes call me.

Am only 46 years old and this still happens to me.

Add-on:

Wear reading glasses.
Use mens/womens hair coloring
Just can't do some of the "physical things" like I use to. The old body says "no way".
Take OTC pain medicine much more.
Looking very forward to retirement......cruising around a lake in a boat or kicking back fishing. Now that is "the life".
Our age: wife/59, me/58

When the songs/bands that you could not wait to buy the album (yes, good old vinyl) are now regulars on the oldies station.

When someone is having a really good party down the street and you are more concerned with the noise waking you up instead of going down to join them.

When you can't stay up to watch Leno anymore.

When you go to post a reply...

And between the nano-seconds of clicking reply, and your fingers getting ready to type your witty response....

Nothing..

IT'S GONE!
You forget everything..

I know I'm getting old because I'm just thankful every day I wake up this side of the grass...and wake up before I "go" the first time of the day!

God, naps are so exciting! I look forward to sleeping as if I am going on a 3 week vacation.

You know you are getting old when you can officially be described as "cantankerous".
