Listen to the beautiful verses :“GRANDMA”
“If youth knew, if age could!’ has been an old cry. The tragedy of human race has been that youth does not know the consequences of action and age does not have the physical power to do things. Age has foresight and wisdom born out of experience. If youth had the qualities of age and vice-versa, the world would have been a much nicer place to live in.

Short stories about themselves: Watch photo expose “Retirees at the Club”
“I’ve sure gotten old!
1. I’ve had two 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 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.’
2. “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.”
3. An elderly woman decided to prepare her will and told her preacher that she had two final requests. First, she wanted to be cremated, and second, she wanted her ashes scattered over Wal-Mart. “Wal-Mart”?, the preacher exclaimed. “Why Wal-Mart?” “Then I’ll be sure that my daughters visit me twice a week”.
4.”My memory’s not as sharp as it used to be. Also, my memory’s not as sharp as it used to be.”
5. “Know how to prevent sagging?”
“Just eat till the wrinkles fill out”.
6. “It’s scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker”.
7. The Senility Prayer:
Grant me the senility to forget the people
I never liked anyway,
the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and
the eyesight to tell the difference.”
Always remember this: You don’t stop laughing because you grow old, You grow old because you stop laughing!
