Seniors are NOT the cause...;-)

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

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.

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.

Does anyone under the age of 50 know the lyrics to the Star Spangled Banner

What about the last verse of My Country 'tis of Thee?

"Our father's God to thee, Author of liberty, to Thee we sing. Long may our land be bright,With freedom's Holy light. Protect us by Thy might, Great God our King."

YES, I'M A SENIOR CITIZEN! I can be the life of the party...... even if I can only 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 safe secure place, somewhere. ???

I'm wrinkled, saggy, lumpy, I shake/rattle/roll even when I don't mean to...and I'm beginning to realize that aging is not for wimps.

I'm a walking storeroom of facts..... I've just lost the key to the storeroom door...and even IF I could find the one Really wants to hear them!

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

Please, don't anyone tell me any differently, I really want to enjoy this last run around the track! May you all be blessed, may you enjoy good humor, share it with others. May God bless your life until He allows you to see Him face to face.
