At My Age



let’s see...

At my age, now,


so what’s so different?


There’s more salt in my hair than pepper.

An’ I still walk, uh...

kind’a straight

‘cept now an’ then

I get this hitch in my getalong.


Uh, what was I saying?

Oh, yeah!

My memory ain’t much worse

then back than when I was...

Uh, what was I saying?

Yeah, I still remember stuff


Oh, yeah!

I remember,

uh, where’s the toilet?

it’s there...


Then there’s teeth.



really there’s good an’ bad here.

Bad ‘cause bubble-gum don’t work so good.

Good ‘cause I don’t have toothaches


An’ I’m not all that much heavier

now than when I was...


so they say

as women age their stomachs go to their butts


so they say,

when men age their butts go to their stomachs.

Okay, so my butt’s slipped front-side

so now my belly’s like where my butt

used to be,

an’ my butt’s...?

hell I don’t have a butt no-more

‘cause my butt’s where my belly use’t’be.

What else?

Oh, yeah,

I see stuff far away

but not so good close to me.


Huh, what’ch’ya say?


Sex, yeah...

Always thought

when I stop thinkin’a  sex’ll

be the time I’ll be ready for diein’.

an’ as I ain’t ready to be diein’

I’ve become kind’a like a deranged

kind’a chemist thinkin’...


If I take a half’a’ one those almond colored pills in the mornin’,

you know that pill that’ll maybe’ll give me a four hour erection...

hell, we...

my lady’n me’ll settle for a twenty minute erection.

an’ I take one’a those blue kind’a pills an hour before,

maybe it’ll work an’ we’ll...

hell you know!

Oh, yeah,

an’ I almost always gotta pee.

What a hoot, Mark its like the old saying goes, growing old is not for sissy's...everyday surprises you with a new, shall we say twist, just when we thought we were in control of this aging thing. (smiles)
Well done!

Yep, that's life through n through. I know all about that salt in my hair, and my stomach well it's going somewhere as I don't have a big butt it must have gone straight to my boobs lol. But hey I'm not as good as I once was but I'm as good once as I ever was as Toby Keith says in his song. Great one Markie.

Your #1 Newfie Friend Hugs XOXOXO, Rose

"aní I always gotta pee" ain't the only one, though you ought to try a foley catheter, and though I don't like it forever, it is nice to sleep all night through and not have to pee constantly...LOL, ED

Much amusement here my friend. An' like they say a four hour erection might lead to Mr. Potato Head and his famous sprinkler system. Patrick
