    CARTOONS FOR SENIORS THEY FINALLY FOUND CARTOONS ABOUT ME! 

    From: Ralph & BA

    Subject: Fw: Fwd: CARTOONS FOR SENIORS THEY FINALLY FOUND CARTOONS ABOUT ME!

    Cartoons for seniors

    By the time a man is wise enough to watch his step,
    he’s too old to go anywhere.

    Old age is when you have stopped growing at both ends,
    and have begun to grow in the middle.

    A man has reached old age when he is cautioned
    to slow down by his Doctor instead of by the police.

    Don’t worry about avoiding temptation.
    As you grow older, it will avoid you.

    You’re getting old when you don’t care where your spouse goes,
    just as long as you don’t have to go along.

    Statistics show that at the age of seventy, there are five women
    to every man. Isn’t that an ironic time for a guy to get those odds?

    Old age is when it takes longer to rest than to get tired.

    God Bless America!

    A dog’s seeing-eye dog….Wow!

    Lily is a Great Dane that has been blind since a
    Bizarre medical condition required that she have

    Both eyes removed. For the last 5 years, Madison ,
    Another Great Dane, has been her sight.

    The two are, of course, inseparable.

    "People will forget what you said; People will forget
    What you did.

    But people will never forget how you made them feel."

    The angels we have been waiting for are already here.

    I couldn’t resist passing these on!

    STRONG PERSON

    A strong person knows how to keep their life in line. Even with tears in their eyes, they still manage to say "I’m ok" with a smile. Send this to a strong person. I just did. Be honest and send this to anyone who made you smile this year.
