I'm Here Again

You know you are getting old check off the list of ailments you've had. This has been a heck of a summer, 3 eye surgeries, and I just finished a whole week of being sick with that nasty flu. I couldn't even go to the hospital because it would be worse there, my immune system is very low. But good news---I am here to stay!! Below is an email I got from Jay that I just had to pass on to my friends, enjoy.

The many perks of getting past 50, moving in on 60 or even plunging towards 70! --

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

Forward this to every one you can remember right now!

And Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.


  1. I'm so sorry to hear you had the flu. How awful!
    On the lighter side, I got a really good chuckle out of your list of "perks" and plan to pass it on to a few folks myself.

    Take care, and don't rush your recovery.

  2. I was wondering where you got to! I was going to email you cause I was afraid it was that eye again. Sorry you had the flu but happy to hear you were able to fight it off. Jay's list is too funny but it needs something about naps in it *LOL*

  3. Hey Miss Molly!!!! I was wondering where you were! I was getting ready to send out the search party.....I'm glad you are recovering. Keep in touch! Love ya.
