Old is not for sissies

Submitted by Gary Cinnamon

I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape, so I got my doctor’s permission to join a fitness club and start exercising... I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors. I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour. But, by the time I got my leotards on, the class was over.

She simply replied, "No peer pressure."

Just before the funeral services, the undertaker came up to the very elderly widow and asked, "How old was your husband?

"98," she replied. "Two years older than me."
"So you’re 96," the undertaker commented.
She responded, "Hardly worth going home, is it?"

An elderly woman from Brooklyn decided to prepare her will and make her final requests. She told her rabbi she had two final requests. First, she wanted to be cremated, and second, she wanted her ashes scattered over Bloomingdales.

"Bloomingdales?" the rabbi exclaimed. "Why Bloomingdales?"

"Then I’ll be sure my daughters visit me twice a week."

Morris, an 82 year-old man, went to the doctor to get a physical. A few days later the doctor saw Morris walking down the street with a gorgeous young woman on his arm.
A couple of days later the doctor spoke to Morris and said, "You’re really doing great, aren’t you?"

Morris replied, "Just doing what you said, Doc:’Get a hot mamma and be cheerful.’"
The doctor said, "I didn’t say that. I said, ’You’ve got a heart murmur. Be careful’"

I’ve sure gotten old. I’ve had 2 By-pass surgeries. A hip replacement, new knees, fought prostate cancer, and diabetes. I’m half blind, can’t hear anything quieter than a jet engine, take 40 different medications that make me dizzy, winded, and subject to blackouts. Have bouts with dementia. Have poor circulation; hardly feel my hands and feet anymore, can’t remember if I’m 85 or 92, have lost all my friends. But.....Thank God, I still have my driver’s license
