Laughs of the Day: Getting Old

A man has reached middle 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 "getting lucky" means you find your car in the 
parking lot.

You're getting old when you're sitting in a rocker, and you can't get it 

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

Middle age is when work is a lot less fun - and fun a lot more work.

Statistics show that at the age of seventy, there are five women to every 
man. Isn't that the dog-gonest time for a guy to get those odds?

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

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

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

Middle age is having a choice of two temptations and choosing the one 
that will get you home earlier.

You know you're into middle age when you realize that caution is the 
only thing you care to exercise.

You're getting old when you wake up with that morning-after feeling, 
and you didn't do anything the night before.

It's hard to be nostalgic when you can't remember anything.
