Thank you for a good chuckle before facing my day of, "old age." Accurate description of the aging process. Never the less, life is good and I thank Heavenly Father for each day.

It's good to laugh at your self some times. I'm not sure if this wants to make me laugh or cry right now though as I am living this with my mother and myself and it is hard plus having a painful autoimmune disorder and still raising my last and helping raise 2 grands because their parents are on the autism spectrum.

Hilarious! Getting old is not as fun as it used to be!

With all due respect to Brother Howard, including in your daily offerings humorously-meant articles that reinforce all of the negative stereotypes of aging is not helpful to anyone. Fear of aging is the primary factor that feeds ageism in our world along with all of the devastation that it causes. Please seek out articles that promote positive aging just as your other articles promote positive gospel living. Thank you.

My grandmother lived a very long time, and her biggest complaint at her 100th birthday was not being able to hear or see the party we held for her. Losing her senses of sight and hearing left her unable to participate in daily life, and, at her death 5 years later, she was so grateful to be finally leaving to rejoin her husband. Grandpa had passed 40 years before. Old age is not for the weak, but for those strong enough to endure heartache, loss and physical/mental decline after a lifetime of work. At 68 myself, I am beginning to understand.
