I received this as an email but I thought it would make an excellent blog post!

Perks of reaching 50 or being over 60

And heading towards 70 or beyond!

01.    Kidnappers are not very

          interested in you.

02.    In a hostage situation, you

          are likely to be released first.

03.    No one expects you to run  –

           – anywhere.

04.    People call at 9 PM (or 9  AM)

           and ask, “Did I wake you?”

05.     People no longer view you as

           a hypochondriac.

06.     There is nothing left to learn

           the hard way.

07.     Things you buy now won’t

           wear out.

08.     You can eat supper at 4 PM.

09.    You can live without sex but

           not your glasses.

10.     You get into heated arguments

           about pension plans.

11.     You no longer think of speed

           limits as a challenge.

12.     You quit trying to hold your

           stomach in no matter who

           walks into the room.

13.     You sing along with elevator music.

14.     Your eyes won’t get much worse.

15.     Your investment in health insurance

           is finally beginning to pay off.

16.     Your joints are more accurate

           meteorologists than the

           national weather service.

17.     Your secrets are safe with

           your friends because they can’t

           remember them either.

18.     Your supply of brain cells is finally

           down to  a manageable size.

19.     You can’t remember who sent you

           this list. And you notice these are

           all in big print  for your convenience.


Never, NEVER, NEVER, under any circumstances,

take a sleeping pill, and

a laxative on the same night!
