Joys Of Old Age part 1




I have learned so much from my AARP magazine. This month is one of my most favorite issues of the magazine. 


Above is the article on Sam Elliott. I learned he was 40 before he married, he Married Katherine Ross in 1984 and is still married to her.
His father once told him he did not have a chance of a snowball in hell in Hollywood. 
Wow! was he wrong
Sam can sit on my chair any time...



I also learned something about one of my favorite authors, David Baldacci, 
while While working his way through college, he worked as Pinkerton Security for 4 dollars and hour. He sat in a guard shack during the grave yard shift with nothing to do but read.
He read In Cold Blood and that book made him decide to become and author.

AARP article
 10 Mysteries of the Human Body by Julie Stewart

I loved it. A few of the ones I related to...

Why have I sprung a leak? (women you know what this is about)

How come I am suddenly drenched? (who, me?)

Who moved the bathroom? (my personal favorite)

Where Did these SPOTS come from? (the pretty brown spots from nowhere)
AND
Is it me, or is my nose getting Bigger... (my ears are to)

Don't fret yet.....
the answer is.. NO, they are not getting bigger, the bones and fat are sinking inward, making the nose LOOK bigger....same thing goes for why my ears look like taxi car doors open. The ears are drooping, the face is sinking inward, making the ears APPEAR larger.

Now don't you feel better? Just Knowing the Mysteries of OLD AGE and the reason we  have them...
Misery loves company.
BUT WAIT! there's MORE  to be continued

Thank you for explaining the growing ears and nose thing. I read they actually did continue to GROW!! I am so happy I didn't get pierced ears! My earrings cover up that long extra flap of EAR!!

Why can't I get up quickly when I bend down??That's a mystery .

Ann said...

Softening the blow about the mysteries with Sam Elliott was a smart move. I've always liked him. Does anyone know about the mystery of how I got inside this old lady body? And please tell me how to get out

DeniseinVA said...

I love to watch any movies Sam is in. He has one of those voices you can sink into, and handsome, rugged good looks. Can so relate to the rest and once again I had a good laugh. Thanks Sandra!

ClickNCamera said...

Same Elliot was always handsome and he is getting better with age, that's just wrong, but he is. Going to grab my issue and take a look with my second cup of Joe....Enjoy your day!

I love AARP - I agree with you - funny my hubs won't read it.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I like when our AARP magazine arrives!!!

What Karen Sees said...

You are a brave lady. I refuse to open that magazine...it's like admitting to myself I'm really old. And I'm really not! I'm not! I'm not! Oh, and one more thing, I'm not old! Oh wait, did I already mention that?

eileeninmd said...

Oh yes, who does not like Sam? I do! I had to laugh at the bigger nose mystery. The brown spots are not freckles?

Enjoy your weekend!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I fell in love with Sam Elliott's voice a long time ago, and he was good looking, too. Still is. What I want to know is...how did we get this old so fast??? It seems like it was only yesterday that I was a young chick. Now I'm still a young chick but in an aging body! And yes, I can relate to some of those not so wonderful aging problems. Except for the bigger nose. I haven't noticed that yet!

photowannabe said...

I didn't read my magazine yet either. Actually I mostly don't read it.
Too much TRUTH in it.
Seems I'm not aging well either. I can relate to most of those statements..
You made me laugh because I I was just thinking the other day that my nose seemed bigger.. (:0)!!

Dory and the Mama said...

You had me at Sam Elliot...;-)

Rose said...

I am not sure I want to hear more!!! But at least I am not the only one with these problems...

Gail said...

What was your post about...I just went google eyed when I saw Sam. The rest was a total blur!

He can sit in a box with a fox or anything else he pleases. I might even offer to wash his feet if I could get that low. Sam I Am...thanks. You made my day.

Kathy said...

Sam Elliott, huh? So that's his name? I only know him by that sexy voice! That's enough.

barbara l. hale said...

LOL! Interesting stuff, too. Well, I for one can't afford to let my nose get any bigger. It's plenty big all ready.
