13 PERKS OF BEING OVER 50

Since I only have ONE more year until I hit the Big FiVe O
I've already searched the web for some of the advantages....



1. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.

2. No one expects you to run--anywhere.

3. There is nothing left to learn the hard way.

4. Things you buy now won't wear out.

5. You can live without sex but not your glasses.

6. You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.

7. You quit trying to hold your stomach in no matter who walks into the room.

8. You sing along with elevator music.

9. Your eyes won't get much worse.

10. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.

11. Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the national weather service.

12. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either.

13. Your supply of brain cells is finally down to manageable size.

This is my 15th TT- visit Thurs. 13! for more

I forgot what I was going to say! Not really. The one about the memory going is great, but I especially like the one about kidnappers not being interesting. I can't believe you have one year to go. That can't be right!
