    Aging Events We May Experience

    The Importance of walking:

    Walking can add minutes to your life.This enables you at 85 years old to spend an additional 5 months in a nursing home at $5,000 per month.

    My grandpa started walking five miles a day when he was 60. Now he's 97 years old and we have no idea where the heck he is.

    I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.

    The only reason I would take up walking is so that I could hear heavy breathing again.

    I have to walk early in the morning, before my brain figures out what I'm doing...

    I joined a health club last year, spent about 250 bucks. Haven't lost a pound. Apparently you have to go there!

    Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

    I do have flabby thighs, but fortunately my stomach covers them.

    The advantage of exercising every day is so when you die, they'll say, 'Well, he looks good doesn't he.'

    If you are going to try cross-country skiing, start with a small country.

    I know I got a lot of exercise the last few years,......just getting over the hill.

    We all get heavier as we get older because there's a lot more information in our heads. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    AND Every time I start thinking too much about how I look, I just find a pub with a Happy Hour and by the time I leave, I look just fine.

    You could run this over to your friends but just e-mail it to them! It will save you the walk!

    I believe in the hereafter because every time I go into the tool crib I have to ask myself what did I come in here after

    Old age and senility. the act of going from one room to the next and having forgotten what we wanted to get done. Then we walk back to the first room in hopes we will remember.

    These days I have to write it down before going anywhere I am on my second note pad already. Yet at least they are not forgotten anymore
    If it isnt broken, dont repair it.

    I like overalls because I can keep my notes right in the bib. Unfortunately, they're not part of the uniform. For that matter, not alot of people around here wear them at all anymore. The embarrassing part to all this is it's not a long walk back out to the first room. The too crib is literally turn around and take two steps
