    Once you get to the top of the stairs, there's nowhere to go but down.

    That's actually the same thing. Mortality-wise, as the past gets longer, the future becomes shorter.

    when you look in the mirror and dont like what you see, because your no longer the young person you use to be

    it can be terrifying like the scene from What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? with Betty Davis

    Not so much in a mirror, but as a follow-up to this June 20th post...

    ...I didn't have to take the written or driving test, but they did have me read their eye chart and have an updated photo taken. Now, every time I look at the photo on my license I think, "Jeez, who's that old man?" :p

    And many now are four generations removed.

    You really know you’re getting old when when you’re surprised to see someone from your generation in the crowd.

    You know you are getting old when you
    forget why you are getting old. :)

    You know, you are getting older, when you prefer fresh bedclothing more than in your 20s. :):D

    You know you are getting old when you
    start using empty tennis ball cans by your bedside because you are too cold
    and tired to make the trip to the bathroom which now is an all night affair
    especially in the winter months.

    And you are definitely getting older and
    sentimental when you feel bad that you
    have to wake up Polo and Sundance who
    have made it a ritual of sleeping on top
    of you
    when you have to use the tennis cans by
    the bedside because you.... oh hell...
    I already explained why I have to get
    up! :mad:

    This is why properly designed night stands have a little cupboard on the bottom.

    With my luck... in the night, I probably would be too lazy to put
    it back inside the cupboard or put the
    lid back.
    I can see Polo on top of the night stand watching and knocking
    that digital clock into you know where!

    If I leave my chest drawers opened just a tad... Polo will open them and take out all my socks and poo-poo undies and throw them on the bedroom floor.

    Something's definitely wrong with
    that cat.
    In the afternoons he will take a nap with his head inside my canvas Tretorns.:(

    A funnel, attached to a hose, connected to a watering can makes for a good alternative bladder relief. If you happen to have somewhere to site a hook for the funnel it will negate the need to get out of bed. I have the next best thing, an en suite bathroom.

    I think you have your next picture opportunity for the "Things That Make Me Smile" thread.
