    Senior citizens are constantly being criticized for every conceivable deficiency of the modern world, real or imaginary. We know we take responsibility for all we have done and do not blame others.

    HOWEVER, upon reflection, we would like to point out that it was NOT the senior citizens who took:

    The melody out of music,
    The pride out of appearance,
    The courtesy out of driving,
    The romance out of love,
    The commitment out of marriage,
    The responsibility out of parenthood,
    The togetherness out of the family,
    The learning out of education,
    The service out of patriotism,
    The Golden Rule from rulers,
    The nativity scene out of cities,
    The civility out of behavior,
    The refinement out of language,
    The dedication out of employment,
    The prudence out of spending,
    The ambition out of achievement or
    God out of government and school.

    And we certainly are NOT the ones who eliminated patience and tolerance from personal relationships and interactions with others!!

    And, we do understand the meaning of patriotism,
    and remember those who have fought and died for our country.
    Just look at the Seniors with tears in their eyes and pride in their hearts as they stand at attention with their hand over their hearts!


    I'm the life of the party...... even if it lasts until 8 p.m.

    I'm very good at opening childproof caps.... with a hammer.

    I'm awake many hours before my body allows me to get up.

    I'm smiling all the time because I can't hear a thing you're saying.

    I'm sure everything I can't find is in a safe secure place, somewhere.

    I'm wrinkled, saggy, lumpy, and that's just my left leg.

    I'm beginning to realize that aging is not for wimps.

    Yes, I'm a SENIOR CITIZEN and I think I am having the time of my life!

    Now if I could only remember who sent this to me, I wouldn't send it back to them, but I would send it to many more too!

    Spread the laughter
    Share the cheer
    Let's be happy
    While we're here.

    Go Green - Recycle CONGRESS!!

    The words Senior Citizen are a little strange, and maybe outdated. They start at 50 (AARP) and end at demise of the individual. Is there a difference between one at 55 years old and one 75 years old? You bet, the younger could be the child of the later, and Grand Mother could be 95. My wife is 62, her mother is 93. Both seniors, but very very different. Maybe we should have some new words to describe the Senior Citizen at various ages (stages) of that part of life....
