THURSDAY THIRTEEN



more participants here


This morning I had two things in my hands. One paper ball and the full water bowl of the cats. The paper ball was for the bin under the sink and the bowl to refresh the water. I throw the bowl in the bin and rinced the paper ball. That's why I thought about ageing and found this. (the worst is it really happened !)


13 things about ageing

I. I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it.

2. My wild oats have turned into prunes and All Bran.

3. I finally got my head together; now my body is falling apart.

4. Funny, I don't remember being absent minded...

6. If all is not lost, where is it?

7. It is easier to get older than it is to get wiser.

8. It's hard to make a comeback when you haven't been anywhere.

9. The only time the world beats a path to your door is when you're in the bathroom.

10. If God wanted me to touch my toes, he would have put them on my knees.

11. When I'm finally holding all the cards, why does everyone decide to play chess?

12. It's not hard to meet expenses... they're everywhere.

13. The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.




Fortunately I don't iron anymore !

LOL! The trick is not to rush in any you are doing and pay attention.

I can still touch my toes with knees straight and determined to keep it that way. :)

Bwahahaha on 7 and 10. They all are a riot but those two are just too funny. Love 'em :)

Oh Gatinna, you cracked me up with this and I wanna thank you for your comment about my 'missed' which is in the past.

Yes, hopefully I meet a new soulmate soon :) Thank you from the bottom of my heart :D

Very nice, I like this!

Danielle said...

Great List! Very funny! My neighbor alwys says you come into this world the same way you go out, naked, bald and with nothing. lol! Have a great Thursday!

I'm glad I know someone else who does those silly things but as the first commenter says, we have to try harder at having the presence of mind. Thinking about what you are doing, concentrating on it .ai even have to tell myself what I'm doing so that i remember it. Loike: "I have shut the garage door" when I do it so that I don't get to the top of the street and wonder if I shut it or not. A good list and very true.

diane said...

Sorry about the many typos...getting tired and lazy.

Maribeth said...

Great list and it's a good thing you don't iron anymore! Bet the cats and Mr. Gattno are all relieved!

Brenda ND said...

LOL, who says aging can't be fun and funny? Thanks for sharing.

I am Harriet said...

I'm attempting to put off the prunes for as long as possible.

Enjoy your Thursday!

What a great list! I love #10. By the way, I used to live in Mons and remember a school field trip to Waterloo - we walked all the way to the top of the monument - I'd never make it now!

Jennie said...

#9 is my favorite - mostly because I already relate to it, with 3 small children in the home! :)

Those are great!

Melli said...

I LOVE #1!!! And I don't iron either! As a matter of fact - that's a 4 letter word at my house!

Loree said...

Not sure whether to smile or to cry. Some of those are so true :)

I entered old age at age 35 but I knew all was not lost, as you said... though I had no idea where it was. Akh!

Gattina I had a mysterious question for you, can you do steno? And if so what type would that be, DEK or Duploye/Duployan..? I saw some German shorthand written down and it looks amazing. Like Martian. Very pretty, not like Pitman's shorthand which is just angles. or Greggs which is scribbles. I learned Greggs shorthand bc I wanted to be a journalist and I didn't trust dictaphones back in the 1980s. Told you I was old.
