I’m Fine…..How are you?

 

It is better to say “I’m fine” with a grin,
Than to let people know the shape we are in.

 

I’M FINE!! HOW ARE YOU?

 


There’s nothing the matter with me,
I’m just as healthy as can be,
I have arthritis in both knees,
And when I talk, I talk with a wheeze.
My pulse is weak, my blood is thin,
But I’m awfully well for the shape I’m in.

 


All my teeth have had to come out,
And my diet I hate to think about.
I’m overweight and I can’t get thin,
But I’m awfully well for the shape I’m in.

 


And arch supports I need for my feet.
Or I wouldn’t be able to go out in the street.
Sleep is denied me night after night,
But every morning I find I’m all right.
My memory’s failing, my head’s in a spin.
But I’m awfully well for the shape I’m in.

 


Old age is golden I’ve heard it said,
But sometimes I wonder, as I go to bed.
With my ears in a drawer, my teeth in a cup,
And my glasses on a shelf, until I get up.
And when sleep dims my eyes, I say to myself,
Is there anything else I should lay on the shelf?

 


The reason I know my Youth has been spent,
Is my get-up-and-go has got-up-and-went!
But really I don’t mind, when I think with a grin,
Of all the places my get-up has been.

 


I get up each morning and dust off my wits,
Pick up the paper and read the obits.
If my name is missing, I’m therefore not dead,
So I eat a good breakfast and jump back into bed.

The moral of this as the tale unfolds,
Is that for you and me, who are growing old.
It is better to say “I’m fine” with a grin,
Than to let people know the shape we are in.

I’M FINE!! HOW ARE YOU?

A very powerful cartoon…..please keep it going.

This should be posted in every school in the ” USA ..”

Isn’t life strange? I never met one Veteran who enlisted to fight for Socialism!

86% will send this on.

I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG, OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA , AND TO THE REPUBLIC FOR WHICH IT STANDS, ONE NATION UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!

 

If Muslims can pray on Madison Avenue, why are Christians banned from praying in public and from erecting religious displays on their holy days?

What happened to our National Day of Prayer? Obama says we can’t have that; yet, Muslims are allowed to block off Madison Ave. , in N.Y.C., and pray in the middle of the street! And, it’s a monthly ritual!

Tell me, again, whose country is this? Ours or the Muslims?

I was asked to send this on if I agree, or delete if I don’t.
 
It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God.

Therefore, I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a problem in having ‘In God! We Trust’ on our money and having ‘God’ in the Pledge of Allegiance.

I believe it’s time we stand up for what we believe!

The information below I received just now in e-mail –  *** IT has Been checked and it is
CORRECT! *** – it just might be your time (or your wife’s  ( or girlfriend) ) to have
a Mammogram done and without asking you might not know) — and I would
rather get it out so YOU have a voice to ASK!

Precautions re Mammograms and Dental XRays/ A Useful Warning
A wife sent me this:
 
On Wednesday there was a TV segment on the fastest growing cancer in women, thyroid cancer. It was a very interesting program that mentioned that the increase could possibly be related to the use of dental x-rays and mammograms. On the apron/shield the dental tech places over your upper body during dental x-rays there is a little flap that can be lifted up and wrapped around your neck. Many dentists don’t even bother to use it. Also, there is something called a “thyroid guard” for use during mammograms.
 
By coincidence, I had my yearly mammogram yesterday. I felt a little silly, but I asked about the guard and sure enough, the technician had one in a drawer. I asked why it wasn’t routinely used. Answer: “I don’t know. You have to ask for it.” Well, if I hadn’t seen the show, how would I have known to ask?
 
I hope you pass this on to your friends and family.
