List your signs that show you are getting older. Below is part of my ever growing list.

Joints are a little sore.
Cholesterol up.
Take a few pills every day other than vitamins.
Takes a little longer for sex.
Naps in the middle of the day.
Watching your diet.
Going to more funerals of friends.
Memory loss.
On a diet and watch what you eat.
Forgetting names or is that part of memory loss?
Thinking of the good old days that may not have been so good, just old.

"Going from one health issue to another is a real bad sign."

.....

Hmmmmm, let's see: 1999 diverticulitis surgery, 2ft colon resection, 2001 incisional hernia surgery, 2003 small bowel resection, 2005 hernia surgery, 2008 colon cecum cancer surgery/resection, 2009 five arterial bypass surgery, 2010, 2011, 2013 prostrate cancer radiation therapy...let me think What else?

Oh yeah, 2000 laparoscopic knee surgery and currently loosing right hip...Did I mention I turn 70 the end of May?

But...life is good and has been great with no regrets and yes the heart is in great shape and the cancers are in emission with no indicators present.

Wanting to know the name of the current "Top 40" records so you won't buy them by mistake.

It was interesting watching a music video with my BFF. I asked her "Do you know who the girl is with the white crop top is?" She told me "Natasha Bedingfield."

I went out to amazon.com and listened to her music and I liked it. Bought her three US-released albums.

I also watched the "We Are The World" music video with my nine-year-old nephew (on VHS, he's now thirty five). He was able to tell me the girl with pink and yellow hair was Cyndi Lauper and I told him the "old guy" was Paul Simon.

I've noted that most Wal-Mart customers wear higher-class sneakers than what they sell at Wal-Mart.

Having bought your music collection three times: the first time on LP, the second time on CD, and the third time is the remastered version from iTunes.

trugas-i am happy for you that your "growth" was not cancerous.
laughing at your barnacle-it SOUNDS like something on a barn or a ship.
me has had many lumps removed and knows that "waiting" until the doctor
says "not cancerous" and that feeling that you've been holding your breath
that whole time and now can sigh with relief.
none of my doctors ever called my lumps funny names-maybe if they had it would have made it a little less serious.

Listening to the songs from your youth is a reminder of just how old you really are. Right now I'm mellowing out listening to Frank Sinatra. The older I get the better he sounds.

The "Good old days" involves gas lanterns, wood stoves and outhouses- without going camping. Hanging clothes outside in the winter and they would freeze stiff, Hundreds of glass sealers full of every fruit, veggie, and pickle imaginable. Being able to drink raw milk without breaking the law. To be young again....
