Senior citizens are constantly being criticized for every conceivable deficiency of the modern world, real or imaginary. We know we take responsibility for all we have done and do not try to blame others.

HOWEVER,  upon reflection, we would like to point out that it was NOT senior citizens who took:

The melody out of music,
The  pride out of appearance,
The  courtesy out of driving,
The  romance out of love,
The  commitment out of marriage,

The    responsibility     out of parenthood,
The  togetherness out of the family,
The  learning out of education,
The  service out of patriotism,
The  Golden Rule from rulers,
The  nativity scene out of cities,
The  civility out of behavior,

The   refinement     out of language,
The dedication out of employment,
The prudence out of spending,
The ambition out of achievement or
God out of government and school.

And we certainly are  NOT the ones who eliminated patience and tolerance from personal relationships and interactions with others!

And, we DO understand the meaning of patriotism, and remember those who have   fought and died for our country

Just look at the Seniors with tears in their eyes and pride in their hearts, as they stand at attention, when the American  Flag passes by in a parade!

I'm the life of the party.....Even if it lasts until 8 p.m.

I'm very good at opening childproof caps....   With a hammer.

I'm awake many hours before my body allows me to get up.

I'm smiling all the time,  because I can't hear a thing you're saying.
I'm sure everything I can't find is
in a safe secure place, somewhere.
I'm wrinkled, saggy, lumpy, 
and that's just my left leg.
I'm beginning to realize that aging is not for wimps

Yes, I'm a SENIOR CITIZEN and I think I am having the time of my life!  Now if I could only remember who sent this to me, I wouldn't send it back to them. 
Or, maybe I should send it to all my friends anyway. 
They won't remember, even if they did send it.

Spread the laughter Share the cheer

Let's be happy   
While we're here.
