Doesn't this make you proud to be mature - Humor

Velma sent me this one a while back.  I got a chuckle out of some of it, disagree with some but find most of this one to have a grain of truth.  Enjoy

Now doesn't this make you proud to be, well,  MATURE

Senior  citizens are 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.

And  we certainly are NOT  the 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!


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.

Now  if I could only remember who sent this to me, I wouldn't  send it back to them!

Go  Green  -  Recycle CONGRESS!!

Remember  the three R's:

Respect  for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility  for all your actions.
