From Facebook a fun story.
      Four older gentlemen go to lunch. The first three order healthy items
like a tuna sandwich, a salad without croutons and a bowl of soup but Jim,
age 85 ordered cherry pie ala mode and without hesitation added two scoops
of ice cream.
      A week later they were together again and Jim ordered a chocolate
parfait. The others finally had to ask, “what gives Jim?”
His response was something like: “I’ve never been this old before, so,
I’ve decided while I am still here it’s time to try all those things that, for
years, I’ve been ignoring.”
      He added: I haven’t smelled all the flowers yet, there are trout streams
to fish, golf courses to play, kites to fly and jokes to laugh at. I’ve missed
lots of sporting events and too many potato chips and cokes. I want to spread
peanut butter on my toast every morning. Life is too short. It’s time to do
whatever your heart desires!
      The other three in their group changed their orders and added whip
cream!
      That reminded me of a conversation with my dad when he was 88. He
ordered a meal and ask for it to be salt free. I inquired as to why at his age he
was depriving himself of real salt? He informed me that all but one of his
uncles had died of heart disease. To which I pointed out they were all in
their late 70’s or 80’s and had to die from something!
      This brings me to another Facebook post this offered by my friend
Wes Jones. These help pull this message together. It’s titled “Important
Facts to Remember as You Get Older.”


 Death is the number one killer in the world.

 Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.
 Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in the hospital,
dying of nothing.
 In the 60’s people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world
is weird, and people take Prozac to make it normal.
 And finally: Don’t worry about old age; it doesn’t last that long.
