Thoughts on getting older

You hit  65 and your 'check engine' light turns on.

Every part of your body has a medical specialist - you just have not met them all yet. 

It is upsetting to realize you are the same age as 'old people.' 

New-found skills include tripping while walking up stairs, having a coughing fit from taking a drink of water, and getting to a room only to forget what it was you wanted there.

I am not afraid of dying - I just don't want to be there when it happens.

When you drop something on the floor, you pause first to decide if you really need it...

...then, you figure it can stay there until one of your kids visit.

You accept you are old when you realize that your childhood toys are now valuable collectables (except your mother threw them out).

There comes a time when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

Some people say that wisdom comes with age, but sometime age shows up all by itself.

Stop complaining about being old when the alternative is being dead.
