Getting Old Is Not for Sissies

Someone once said that: “getting old is not for sissies!” I’m beginning to learn this first hand. It’s so unfair. You’ve paid your dues of raising the children, working nine to five for forty years and finally paid off the mortgage. Now, life is really ready to begin! No matter what scientists say about when life begins, life begins when the kids move out and the dog dies. Just when you think you’re ready for it to begin, all of a sudden your body and mind begins to lose it. The following story says it all.

An elderly couple had dinner at another couple's house, and after eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen.

The two gentlemen were talking, and one said, "Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great. I would recommend it very highly."

The other man said, "What is the name of the restaurant?"

The first man thought and thought and finally said, "What is the name of that flower you give to someone you love? You know ... The one that's red and has thorns."

"Do you mean a rose?"

"Yes, that's the one," replied the man. He then turned towards the kitchen and yelled, "Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last night?" Click here to read the rest of the story.
