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!!

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. (LDS)

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.

I think if you look at when most of that stuff went into decline you will find it was with the free love bunch of the sixties who happen to be the AARP members of today

Don't look at me. I didn't do it. It happened while I was hard at work becoming a senior. Don't you love being a "Senior"? It is so much better than being an old SOB.

For the last 6 or more months I have had a vary painful back which had me all but disabled. Well, I had an epidural a little over a week ago and I am re-born! Not only is my back at least 70% better but a number of other pains that I had learned to live with are also gone. I lost at least 10 years!

I have another apointment next week for a possible second and maybe even a third procedure. God, If these work half as well I'll be 17 again. Then Setterman had better lock up that gorgeous lawn ornament he was claiming was his wife.

Imgine, getting to go 'round again. Well, amaybe no all the way around.

Here is a Seasoned Citizen joke in todays "Crankshaft" comic strip:

"I have plenty of get up and go.

I just wish I did not have to get up and go so often."
