    One Mans Opinion

    Part ICongrats to the New Orleans Saints. The city deserves their time in thesun after the disaster and I might add the cartoonish response to the stateof the union made by their governor last year. I like the city and the footballteam, but I think I was mostly rooting against the Colts, specifically PaytonManning. Dont get me wrong, he is one of the most successful quarter-backs in the modern era, but something about him just rubs me the wrong way, kind of like a few years back Ialways rooted against Denver because something about John Elway bothered me. I know my feelings dontmean anything to Payton (and his brother Eli, because he troubles me too) or to Elway, but theyre my feel-ings and Im entitled to them. I will continue to respect and admire their success on the field, but I dont haveto like it. So in closing: Cry Payton Cry, Stick Your Fingers in Your Eye and Let the Water Fly! GO Saints!WHO DAT!

    Part IICan somebody tell me what Congress is doing? Looks like nothing to me. Since the Democrats lost the itssuper majority nothing seems to be happening. Obama brings forth an initiative and it gets stone walled,doesnt get out of committee, or gets lobbied or puditised to death. Do these politicians realize they wereelected to run the country, to make life better, healthier and safer for every man, woman and child? It seemslike the Republican political agenda is to mark time and stone wall President Obama at every turn until thenext election. Woe unto us and shame on you Congress.

    Part III

    Arent you glad you dont live in the Northeast? Snow, snow go away, those folks, especially in theWashington, Dc area are really catching the blues. When I lived up there, just a half inch of snowwas enough to bring out the areas worst drivers. Fender benders, guard rail crashes and parkedcars get trashed was the norm. I can only imagine whats going on now. I just hope that the cityresidents heed the warnings to stay home if possible, if they have power and enjoy the extra daysoff. Im sure our politicians up there have no problem, doing nothing for a few more days. Hint, Hint.

    Just, One Mans Opinion.Live Long and Prosper

    A policeman pulled a car over and toldthe driver he had won $5,000 dollars inthe seatbelt competition. "What are yougoing to do with the money?" asked thepoliceman.

    "Well, I guess I'm going to get a driverslicense", he answered.

    "Oh, don't listen to him," said a womanin the passenger seat, "He's a smart al-eck when he's drunk."

    Then the guy in the backseat said, "Iknew we wouldn't get far in a stolencar."

    At that moment there was a knock fromthe trunk and a voice said, "Are we overthe border yet?"

    A woman walked up to a little old man rock-

    ing in a chair on his porch.

    "I couldn't help noticing how happy you

    look," she said. "What's your secret for a

    long happy life?"

    "I smoke three packs of cigarettes a day," he

    said. "I also drink a case of whiskey a week,

    eat fatty foods, and never exercise."

    "That's amazing," the woman said. "How

    old are you?'

    "Twenty-six," he said.

    An Ode to Old Age

    There's quite an art to falling apart as the years go by,And life doesn't begin at 40. That's a big fat lie.My hair's getting thinner, my body is not;The few teeth I have are beginning to rot.

    I smell of Vick's-Vapo-Rub, not Chanel # 5;My new pacemaker's all that keeps me alive.When asked of my past, every detail I'll know,But what was I doing 10 minutes ago?

    Well, you get the idea, what more can I say?I'm off to read the obituary, like I do every day;If my names not there, I'll once again start -Perfecting the art of falling apart


    I've sure gotten old. I've had two By-pass surgeries. A hip replacement, newknees. Fought prostate cancer, and dia-betes. I'm half blind, can't hear anythingquieter than a jet engine, take 40 differ-ent medications that make me dizzy,winded, and subject to blackouts. Havebouts with dementia. Have poor circula-tion, hardly feel my hands and feet any-more. Can't remember if I'm 85 or 92.Have lost all my friends.

    But.....Thank God, I still have my Flor-ida driver's license!

    Two elderly women were out driving in alarge car-both could barely see over thedashboard. As they were cruising along theycame to an intersection. The stoplight wasred but they just went on through. The

    woman in the passenger seat thought to her-self "I must be losing it, I could have swornwe just went through a red light."

    After a few more minutes they came to an-other intersection and the light was red againand again they went right though. This timethe woman in the passenger seat was almostsure that the light had been red but was really

    concerned that she was losing it. She wasgetting nervous and decided to pay veryclose attention to the road and the next inter-section to see what was going on.

    At the next intersection, sure enough, thelight was definitely red and they went rightthrough and she turned to the other womanand said, "Mildred! Did you know we justran through three red lights in a row! You

    could have killed us!"

    Mildred turned to her and said, "Oh, am Idriving?"


    I am a senior citizen...

    - I'm the life of the party... even when it lasts 'till 8pm.

    - I'm very good at opening childproof caps with a hammer.

    - I'm usually interested in going home before I get to where I'm


    - I'm good on a trip for at least an hour without my aspirin,antacid...

    - I'm the first one to find the bathroom wherever I go.

    - I'm awake many hours before my body allows me to get up.

    - I'm smiling all the time because I can't hear a word you'resaying.

    - I'm very good at telling stories...over and over and over and


    - I'm aware that other people's grandchildren are not as bright asmine.

    - I'm so cared for: long-term care, eye care, private care, dentalcare.

    - I'm not grouchy, I just don't like traffic, waiting, children, politi-cians...

    - I'm positive I did housework correctly before the Internet.

    - I'm sure everything I can't find is in a secure place.

    - I'm wrinkled, saggy and lumpy, and that's just my left leg.

    - I'm having trouble remembering simple words like... uh...

    - I'm realizing that aging is not for sissies.

    - I'm walking more (to the bathroom) and enjoying it less.

    - I'm sure they are making adults much younger these days.

    - I'm in the *initial* state of my golden years: SS, CD's, IRA's,AARP.

    - I'm wondering, if you're only as old as you feel, how could I bealive at 150?

    - I'm anti-everything now: anti-fat, anti-smoke, anti-noise, anti-inflammatory.

    - I'm a walking storeroom of facts... I've just lost the key to thestoreroom.

    - I'm a Senior Citizen and I think I am having the time of mylife... Aren't I?

    Pondering Old Age

    How do I know that my youth is all spent?Well, my get up and go has got up and went.But in spite of it all I am able to grinwhen I recall where my get up has been.

    Old age is golden-so I've heard it said-but sometimes I wonder when I get into bed,with my ears in a drawer and my teeth in a cup,my eyes on the table until I wake up.

    Ere sleep dims my eyes I say to myself,"Is there anything else I should lay on the shelf?"And I'm happy to say as I close my door,my friends are the same, perhaps even more.

    When I was young, my slippers were red,I could kick up my heels right over my head.When I grew older, my slippers were blue,but still I could dance the whole night through.

    But now I am old, my slippers are black,I walk to the store and puff my way back.The reason I know my youth is all spent,my get up and go has got up and went.

    But I really don't mind when I think, with a grin,

    of all the grand places my get up has been.Since I have retired from life's competition,I accommodate myself with complete repetition.

    I get up each morning, and dust off my wits,pick up my paper and read the "obits".If my name is missing, I know I'm not dead,so I eat a good breakfast and go back to bed


    A Final Diagnosis

    Thought I'd let my doctor check me,'Cause I didn't feel quite right. . .All those aches and pains annoyed meAnd I couldn't sleep at night.

    He could find no real disorderBut he wouldn't let it rest.What with Medicare and Blue Cross,We would do a couple tests.

    To the hospital he sent meThough I didn't feel that bad.He arranged for them to give meEvery test that could be had.

    I was fluoroscoped and cystoscoped,My aging frame displayed.Stripped, on an ice cold table,While my gizzards were x-rayed.

    I was checked for worms and parasites,For fungus and the crud,While they pierced me with long needlesTaking samples of my blood.

    Doctors came to check me over,

    Probed and pushed and poked around,And to make sure I was livingThey then wired me for sound.

    They have finally concluded,Their results have filled a page.What I have will someday kill me;My affliction is old age.

    Sudoku Solution


    An elderly widow and widower were dat-ing for about five years. The man finallydecided to ask her to marry. She immedi-ately said "yes".

    The next morning when he awoke, hecouldn't remember what her answer was!"Was she happy? I think so, wait, no, shelooked at me funny..."

    After about an hour of trying to rememberto no avail, he got on the telephone andgave her a call. Embarrassed, he admittedthat he didn't remember her answer to the

    marriage proposal.

    "Oh", she said, "I'm so glad you called. Iremembered saying 'yes' to someone, but Icouldn't remember who it was."

    Two police officers saw this old woman

    staggering down the street, stopping her

    they can tell she has had far too much to

    drink and instead of taking her to jail they

    decide to just drive her home. They loadedher into the police cruiser one of the

    officers gets in the back with the drunk

    woman. As they drove through the streets

    they kept asking the woman where she

    lived, all she would say as she stroked the

    officers arm is "Your Passionate" They

    drove awhile longer and asked again,

    again the same response as she stroked his

    arm "Your Passionate". The officers weregetting a little upset so they stopped the car

    and said to the woman, Look we have

    driven around this City for two hours and

    you still haven't told us where you live. She

    replied I keep trying to tell you: "Your

    Passin It!"
