Being a Senior Citizen I Not For the Faint of Heart

Last Update: July 15, 2016

I heard the above statement from my late father and I thought, "Oh come on Dad." Now that I am a senior citizen I am beginning to realize what he meant.

Recently I have been trying to customize my website and trying to perform various tasks which I have done before and I can't remember how to perform now. SENIOR MOMENT.!! As one might expect frustration ensued.

I then remembered my belief that humor is the great healer. When you can laugh, especially at yourself, you feel better. Then I remembered a funny email about senior citizens that my friend sent me yesterday, and had to laugh again.

Attitude is the most important attribute in enjoying life and laughing does a great job in creating a positive attitude.

So did you hear about the travelling salesman...

All the time people were surprised I was as old as I am. Last fall I contracted Lymphoma, and at one point I didn't know if I was going to live or die. Luckily I got the good kind of Lymphoma and had six chemo treatments spaced three weeks apart. After the 4th treatment I was in remission, but still had to finish my last 2 treatments.

Today the treatments are done and I am in the followup portion of my treatment. No body is surprised about my age anymore, and my body is still recovering, but at leased I am above ground.

Sometimes, you will hear that age is a state of mind. Where does that leave you when the mind goes? Oh well, have to cross that
bridge when we get to it. Lol!

I am almost 78 and say it is great to be where we are. A whole lot better than the alternative!

As they say, getting old ain't for sissies.

My grandmother said she definitely believed in the hereafter.

Just about every time she'd enter a room, she'd say to herself: "Now, what was I here after?".

I'm 70 almost 71. You have more fun coming. After I turned 60 I started having health issues. So next year you can start with those. Anyway you are above ground so enjoy it while you still have a view.

Wait until you walk into a room and can't remember while you did it. Those are my favorite. When I used to ride a friend of mine would point as we passed a cemetery. One day I asked about this and he said we can ride and they can't. So at least I can still ride if I wanted to. :)

I had a customer I did a lot of work for over the years. He expressed the same feelings only with a bit more color! I am understanding what he meant now.

Another take on what your father said is, "Getting old is not for wimps." :)
