Since I will be passing a major milestone at the end of this week (I will turn 60 on Friday), I thought I'd post some jokes I've accumulated on aging. Also I had a bit of a health scare recently. Though I'm still consulting physicians about things, it seems that the symptoms I've been experiencing are caused by a mineral deficiency rather than something more serious. Therefore since I'm thinking not just about aging at this time, I'll add to today's mix some humor on health also. I especially appreciated several of today's jokes and hope you get a laugh or two also. Here goes!

The son said, "Why are you so weak?"
She said, "Because I haven't eaten in 38 days."
The son said, "That's terrible, Mom. Why haven't you eaten in 38 days?"
"Because I didn't want my mouth to be filled with food if you should call."

"I guess that's the price we pay for getting old."
"Well, it's not all bad. We should be thankful that we can still drive!"
