The Perks of Being Over 50

Snagged from this website:

1. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.
2. In a hostage situation, you are likely to be released first.
3. No one expects you to run -- anywhere.
4. People call at 9 p.m. and ask, "Did I wake you?"
5. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.
6. There is nothing left to learn the hard way.
7. Things you buy now won't wear out.
8. You can eat dinner at 4 p.m.
9. You can live without sex (though not without glasses).
10. You enjoy hearing about other people's operations.
11. You get into heated arguments about pension plans.
12. You have a party and the neighbors don't even realize it.
13. You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.
14. You quit trying to hold your stomach in, no matter who walks into the room.
15. You sing along with elevator music.
16. Your eyes won't get much worse.
17. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.
18. Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the National Weather Service.
19. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them, either.
20. Your supply of brain cells is finally down to a manageable size.

Is she taking medication for incontinence? There's a drug for that which causes hallucinations.

Comment by David R. on July 15, 2017 at 4:25pm

Andy Mann, I am so sorry to hear what it going on in your family.  Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers, and know that you have brothers here doing the same.

Comment by Andy Mann on July 15, 2017 at 4:12pm
I was sure that my mother, who's 77, was dying Sunday. She woke up at 4 with hallucinations and a slight fever, constantly asking fir a drink of water. It may have been a UTI, and she was fine after sleeping from 6:30 a.m. til 4:30 p.m. Her pulmonologist says that she's beaten the odds and the rest is up to God. Neither he nor her internist has recommended hospice, but she's had a rough month since being hospitalized for six days. I've got three sisters but I'm usually the one who spends time with her. I explain to her that I have to work and even work out, and she's fine on her good days, but only about half her days are good.

Andy, is that good news?  (Sorry about my ignorance.)

I turned 55 last week and found out today that I've been selected for O-5 in the naval reserves.

Happy Holidays! Here's to hoping you hold up under the stress that may come with this time of year. Take time to relax, laugh and spend time with the ones you love to be with.

I'm still getting used to the 1990s being called "a long time ago"!
