Senior citizens

I never thought of myself as a 'senior citizen' until I
 realized thatI
 thought the Super Bowl Halftime show, sucked and
 most of the entertainers on the Grammy's weren't 
much better.Time has passed me by...

YES, THIS IS US!!!
Senior citizens are constantly being criticized for every 
conceivable deficiency of the modern world, real or imaginary. 
We know we take responsibility for all we have done and
 do not blame others.

HOWEVER,
upon reflection, we would like to point out 
that it was NOT the 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 
nativity scene out of cities,

The 
civility out of behavior,

The 
refinement out of language,

The 
dedication out of employment,

The 
prudence out of spending,

The 
ambition out of achievement or
God out of government and school.
And we certainly are NOTthe ones who
eliminated patience and tolerance from
personal relationships and interactions with
others!!

And, we do understand the meaning of
patriotism, and remember those who have
fought and died for our country.

Just look at the Seniors with tears in their
eyes and pride in their hearts as they stand
at attention with their hand over their hearts!

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.

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.


And, MAY GOD BLESS
AMERICA
AND MAY AMERICA THANK GOD!!
Go Green - Recycle CONGRESS!!
