Oddball Wednesday

Lovely Aging Cartoons Funny Maxine Cartoons

We have a house guest. No real post just a good laugh. Here are some fun reasons to love being over 50, 60 and more:

  • You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge
  • Your joints are move accurate than the National Weather Service
  • Your investment in health insurance is beginning to pay off
  • Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can’t remember them
  • People no longer view you as a hypochondriac

I don’t know where these originated but I can relate to every one. See you when I get back from the time machine. Have a great day!

  1. That “secrets are safe” point is so true. I went to tell a bit of gossip from the past to someone in the present– got started then couldn’t remember for sure who it was that I was gossiping about.

  2. Thanks for the jokes.
    I have to admit I still find speed limits a challenge. I’m pretty good, though, at watching for the cops.
    Have fun with your house guests.

  3. Maxine always makes me smile! I can remember when my mother-in-law would say to me, “Getting old takes courage.” I was probably 35! LOL! What did I know then? Nothing. Now I fully understand what she was trying to tell me. I think it was a warning to pay attention and prepare for what was coming. However, you can’t know until you arrive! Enjoy your houseguests!

  4. Calvin & Hobbes was the correct answer on Final Jeopardy last night!

    The Clue: These 2 were named for a European “theologian who believed in predestination” & a “philosopher with a dim view of human nature”
