The Perks of Old Age

Just had to share this with you......received from my lovely friend NANCY...who is also on the downhill slide of life....

Perks of reaching 50 or being over 60 and heading towards 70!

01. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.
02. In a hostage situation you are likely to be released first.
03. No one expects you to run--anywhere.
04. People call at 9 PM and ask, did I wake you?
05. Things you buy now won't wear out.
06. You can eat supper at 4 PM.
07. You can live without sex but not your glasses.
08. You quit trying to hold your stomach in no matter who walks into the room.
09. Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the national weather service.
10. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either.
11. Your supply of brain cells is finally down to manageable size.
12. You can't remember who sent you this list.

And you notice these are all in Big Print for your convenience.

And the sad thing is that I can relate to most of them.....

    70+ wife to 70+ husband: "Let's go upstairs and make love."
