  Observations on Growing Older ---

~It's harder to tell navy from black!
~Everything old is new again, but if you wore it before, you're too old to wear it the 2nd time around!
~Your kids are becoming you...and you don't like them!
..but your grandchildren are perfect!
~Yellow becomes the big!
~Going out is good. Coming home is better!
~When people say you look "Great"...they add "for your age"!
~When you needed the discount you paid full price. Now you get discounts on everything...movies, hotels
~You forget names...but it's OK because other people forgot they even knew you.
`~The last 2 outfits you wore had spots on them.
~You ask your husband or friend how your outfit looks and they tell you the truth!
~The five pounds you wanted to lose is now 15 and you have a better chance of losing your keys than the 15 pounds.
~You realize you're never going to be really good at anything...especially golf.
~Your husband is counting on you to remember things you don't remember.
~The things you cared to do,you don't care to do,but you care that you don't care to do them anymore.
~Your husband sleeps better on a lounge chair with the TV blaring then he does in bed. It's called his "pre-sleep"
~Remember when your mother said "Wear clean underwear in case you GET in an accident"? Now you bring clean underwear in case you HAVE an accident!
~You used to say, "I hope my kids GET married.. Now, " I hope they STAY married!"
~The best place to have a conversation with your husband is in the have his full attention.
`Who wants to wear 3" heels anyway?
`You miss the days when everything worked with just an "ON" and "OFF" switch.
~When .were unheard of and a mouse was something that made you climb on a table.
~You use more 4 letter words..."what?"..."when?" ???
~Now that you can afford expensive jewelry, it's not safe to wear it anywhere.
~Your husband has a night out with the guys but he's home by 9:00 week it will be 8:30 P.M.~You read 100 pages into a book before you realize you've read it.
~Notice everything they sell in stores is "sleeveless"?
~Many of the people in People Magazine you've never heard of.
~Your concealer doesn't conceal.
~Your lipstick bleeds.
~Your mascara clumps and your eyebrows are disappearing.
~You don't have hair under your arms and very little on your legs but your chin needs to be plucked daily!
~What used to be freckles are now liver spots.
~Everybody whispers.
~Now that your husband has retired'd give anything if he'd find a job!
`You have 3 sizes of clothes in your closet....2 of which you will never wear.
~~~~But old is good in some things:...old songs...old movies
And best of all OLD FRIENDS

Sandy and i usually have a day touring teh charity shops in Alloa, but tonight Rosemary has told us the Dunblane ones are really good so we'll be going there next - should be good - it's a really POSH town! ;D ;D ;D
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age

Thats what to do girls - if your ever in Yorkshire - go to the charity shops in
Harrogate - There so snobby there the stuff still has the price tags on and
its usually all from M&S or even more expensive designer shops.

Trouble is - not much in the way of country clothes - you need to be in Berkshire
or The Royal Tunbridge Wells to get the country set stuff ;D ;D ;D

Back on Subject - think I'm suffering from old timers since the hospital have put
me on the codeine tablets for pain - have no memory of things and then forget to
reply to stuff - so keep pestering me if I'm missing something for the next week or
two until I get my faculties back - whatever that is - and if ever ::) ;D ;D ;D
