(One More Time) Old Is Something That's New, Later

Perhaps Groucho Marx took exception to my quoting him (or Bush was upset I didn't quote him) but the post disappeared into the cyber world (heaven or hell?) so here's a repost.

'Maturity is only a short break in adolescence.'
Jules Feiffer

'Old age is fifteen years older than I am.'
Oliver Wendell Holmes

'Getting older is no problem. You just have to live long enough.'
Groucho Marx

'I intend to live forever. So far, so good.'
Steven Wright

'I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later.'
Mitch Hedberg

'I don't feel old. I don't feel anything till noon. That's when it's time for my nap.'
Bob Hope

'Forty is the old age of youth; fifty the youth of old age.'
Victor Hugo

'They thought I was a success as soon as I started paying the bills.'
Mahalia Jackson

'Middle age is when your age starts to show around your middle.'
Bob Hope

Age doesn't matter.

'You would not exist if you did not have something to bring to the table of life.'

MUSINGS ON AGING - Courtesy of Wonderful Russ

A middle-aged woman seemed sheepish as she visited her gynecologist.

"Come now," coaxed the doctor, " you've been seeing me for years. There's nothing you can't tell me."

"This one's kind of strange..."

"Let me be the judge of that," the doctor replied.

"Well," she said, "yesterday I went to the bathroom in the morning and heard a plink-plink-plink in the toilet and when I looked down, the water was full of pennies."

"I see."

"That afternoon I went to the bathroom again and, plink-plink-plink, there were nickels in the bowl."
"That night," she went on, "I went again,
plink-plink-plink, and there were dimes and this morning there were quarters. You've got to tell me what's wrong with me!," she implored.
"I'm scared out of my wits!"

Thegynecologist put a comforting
hand on her shoulder.
"There, there, it's nothing to be scared about."

(Ready for this?)
