Later in Life

Sharing thoughts from later in life… not that any of us fall into the Super Senior category! LOL. Some days a bit of perspective and a ton of humor are more needed than on others. A friend of ours, John Gehrisch, emailed the following lines of humor… they most assuredly keep us humble.

Thoughts From Later In Life

I used to be able to do cartwheels. Now I tip over putting on my underwear.

I hate it when I see an old person and then realize we went to high school together.

I told my wife she should embrace her mistakes … so she hugged me.

My wife says I only have 2 faults. I don’t listen and something else.

I thought growing old would take longer.

I came, I saw, I forgot what I was doing. Retraced my steps, got lost on the way back, now I have no idea what’s going on.

The officer said, “You drinking?” I said, “You buying?” We just laughed and laughed … I need bail money.

A dog accepts you as the boss … a cat wants to see your resume.

Life is too short to waste time matching socks.

Wi-Fi went down for five minutes, so I had to talk to my family. They seem like nice people.

Some people call me crazy. I prefer happy with a twist.

My doctor asked if anyone in my family suffers from mental illness. I said, “No, we all seem to enjoy it.”

I really don’t mind getting old, but my body is having a major fit.

I told my wife I wanted to be cremated. She made me an appointment for Tuesday.

The world’s best antidepressant has 4 legs, a wagging tail, and comes with unconditional love.

I’ve reached the age where my train of thought often leaves the station without me.

If you’re happy and you know it, it’s your meds.

If you see me talking to myself, just move along. I’m self-employed and we’re having a staff meeting.
