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.
