This is cute but kinda sad too. It happened yesterday.

You know you are getting old when - walking into a grocery store and a mom with two little kids, one about 4 and the other probably close to 3 are walking out and the little one stops, does a double take at my white beard, gets big eyes and makes a big round "O" with her mouth, and points to me while Mom is getting a big chuckle. First time I've been mistaken for Santa that I'm aware of. Man, does that EVER make me feel old. Must be the season.

So, is that oh well or ho ho well....

Barry

No need to feel sad! Think of yourself as "Santa's helper" and go with it. When the children point you out, just put your finger to your lip like it's a secret, and wink. It will be a memorable moment all 'round, especially if you make a point of wearing a red sweater or someting else evocative ot the "Old Elf".
Have fun!
John

Beauty, really is, in the eye of the beholder. I find personality and soul to be much more intriguing. Humour is the icing on the cake.

When your wife puts her bra on backward and it fits better....


When you start to believe in the "here after"...you go to the next room and think..."What am I here after?"

When daughter's cute, mom is pretty...now grandma..there's a real honey!!

...when out of 70 some cable channels available you would rather watch re-runs of GUNSMOKE over and over.

...when your wife checks your spelling on simple sentences like this.

Getting Older Alphabet



Getting Older Alphabet

A is for arthritis; B is the bad back,
C is the chest pains, Perhaps car-d-iac?

D is for dental decay and decline,
E is for eyesight, can't read that last line!

F is for fissures and fluid retention,
G is for gas which we'd rather not mention.

H High blood pressure--We'd rather it low;
I For incisions with scars you can show.

J is for joints, out of socket, won't mend,
K is for knees that crack when they bend.

L is for libido, what happened to sex?
M is for memory; we forget what comes next.

N is neuralgia, in nerves way down low;
O is for osteo, bones that don't grow!

P for prescriptions. We have quite a few,
Just give us a pill and we'll be good as new!


Q is for queasy, is it fatal or flu?
R is for reflux, one meal turns to two.

S is for sleepless nights, counting our fears,
T is for Tinnitus; bells in our ears!

U is for urinary; troubles with flow;
V for vertigo, that's 'dizzy,' you know.

W for worry, NOW what's going 'round?
X is for X-ray, and what might be found.

Y for another year we are left here behind,
Z is for zest WE still have -- in our mind.
