Today's blog is a special "Christmas Gift" to my senior readers. And, for the rest of you, just remember, in a few years you, too, will understand and experience the joys of aging that are shared in this song. Beware - it comes more quickly than you expect! These words are to be sung to the tune of "Sleigh Bells Ring/Winter Wonderland":
Sleigh bells ring? Its tinnitus
What's that pain? My arthritis.
We're both growing old - You're grey-haired, I'm bald
Using walkers in the winter once again.
When we try watching TV:
"Turn it up! Can't you hear me?"
We don't like the shows, but that's how it goes,
We feel about a century too old.
In the kitchen: "What did I come here for?"
Guess I'll go ahead and make a snack.
"Have you seen my glasses?" "Shut the fridge door!"
"If you use my dentures, could you give them back?"
Early on, we retire,
Eating prunes by the fire.
We've had a great life;
We're husband and wife.
"Tell me what your name is once again?"
