THE PERKS OF BEING 40 & OVER

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 into a burning building.

4. People call at 9PM 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 dinner at 4 PM

9. You can live without sex but not without glasses

10. You enjoy hearing arguments about pension plans.

11. You have a party and the neighbors don't even realize it. (n/a to CACC members)

12. You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge. (also n/a)

13. You quit trying to hold your stomach in, no matter who
walks into the room.

14. You sing along with elevator music.

15. Your eyes won't get much worse.

16. Your investment in health insurance is finally
beginning to pay off.

17. Your joints are more accurate meteorologists
than the national weather service.

18. Your secrets are safe with your friends because
they can't remember them either.

19. Your supply of brain cells is finally down to
manageable size.

20. You can't remember who sent you this list.

as one who is way past that point I could also make you a list but memory is just one of the thing that no longer works and it would surely bring tears to you eyes knowing what you have to look forward to.

three old guys at home
first guy says: being 60 is the worst I can't pee when i need to anymore.
second guy says: thats nothing being 70 is worst i can't poop when i need to.
third guys says: being 80 is worst every morning at 6am I pee like a race horse and at 7am I poop like crazy.
first and second say: whats wrong with that.
third guy says: I don't get out of bed till 8am
think about it

THE BIG TRICK IS TO REMEMBER - - - - -

YOU DON'T QUIT PLAYING BECAUSE YOU GET OLD,,

YOU GET OLD BECAUSE YOU QUIT PLAYING.

Y'ALL HAVE A REALLY GREAT DAY,

SUNDANCE
