    First, Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your
    age and start bragging about it.

    Second, The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line
    for.

    Third, Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want
    people to know "why" I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of
    the roads weren't paved.

    Fourth, When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth,
    think of Algebra.

    Fifth, You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or
    leaks.

    Sixth, I don't know how I got over the hill without getting to the top.

    Seventh, One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it
    is such a nice change from being young.

    Eighth, One must wait until evening to see how splendid the day has
    been.

    Ninth, Being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.

    Tenth, Long ago when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was

    called witchcraft. Today it's called golf.

    And finally, If you don't learn to laugh at trouble, you won't have
    anything to laugh at when you are old

    I find dealing with some young(er) folks who know everything and think they are better than us older folks to be less and less enjoyable.

    I like to think that I was not that stupid or arrogant when I was younger. I can think of a few things I did back then that frankly, I'm surprised I survived. But disrespecting my elders wasn't one of them.

    What ever happened to respecting your elders (in both age and experience)?
