Something for a dull Tuesday just to make you smile

Subject: Fw: Once again, my so-called "friend" sent this to me today. Entitled: This is us! :roll: Just thought you may want a wee laugh at your afternoon break. :lol: Nothing whatsoever to do with H&S, although it could help with the Stress factor! ./thumbsup..
(Just justification for posting this so that none of our Moderators (or worse Jack) moderate me!) [smilie=sorry.gif]

Some senior citizens are being criticized for the present deficiencies of our modern world; real or imaginary, present or past, foreign or domestic.
We take responsibility for all our actions and omissions; we do not try to blame others for our past imperfections, ignorance or failures.
Our generation saved the World from Fascism, Communism, and Racism, while we raised the Standard of Living, Health Care, and Life Expectancy.

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 civility out of behavior,
The refinement out of language,
The dedication out of employment,
The prudence out of spending,

And we certainly are NOT the ones who eliminated patience and tolerance from personal relationships, and interactions with others on a face to face basis!!
And, we DO understand the meaning of patriotism, and remember those who have fought and died for our country.

YES, I'M A SENIOR CITIZEN!
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; but I haven't made my skin look like wall paper or snake skin.
My ears, nose, tongue, or naval haven't been pieced with metal rings.
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.
"A candle loses none of its light by lighting another candle."
