ARE YOU DREAMING YOU ARE AGING?
Are you aging. Yes we all are. Time stands still for no man. In your younger days we would be looking forward to school holidays, Christmas, birthdays and getting our first car etc. Now that we are aging we are looking back not forward. Are you aging well stop looking back and start planning for the future for when you hit your fifties and more.
A lot of people slow down and do not try to prepare for the future. When you retire from the work force you should have most of your big ticket items that you need for your seventies and eighties. Remember big items like cars in your latter aging years should be smaller car for easier parking with power steering and better vision all around. In the house all items should not be bulky and hard to move around or have to climb up to. Also allow for easy excess to the house and not have to climb up a lot of stairs front and rear.
We sure are, while you have been reading this and we are all living longer. In the early 1900s, some governments decided to give a pension to aging people when they reached sixty five years of age. In those days the average age people lived was about fifty five to sixty. A fair bet not too many pensions would be handed out. Since the second world war the average age has steadily increased into the seventies and now into the eighties. The government is in a panic mode as predictions are pointing towards the nineties.
Are you aging in that direction.
It will not be easy to keep up to the effort needed. Doctors can keep you alive even if your body, legs and arms do not want to help you.

An airplane was about to crash. There were 4 passengers on board, but only 3 parachutes.
The 1st passenger said, “I am Steph Curry, the best NBA basketball player. The Warriors and my millions of fans need me, and I can’t afford to die.” So he took the 1st pack and left the plane.
The 2nd passenger, Donald Trump, said, “I am the newly-elected U.S. President, and I am the smartest President in American history, so my people don’t want me to die.” He took the 2nd pack and jumped out of the plane.
The 3rd passenger, the Pope, said to the 4th passenger, a 10 year old schoolboy, “My son, I am old and don’t have many years left, you have more years ahead so I will sacrifice my life and let you have the last parachute.”
The little boy said, “That’s okay, Your Holiness, there’s a parachute left for you. America ‘s smartest President took my schoolbag.” ……………………………….

Jerry said, he kept saying, OOPS…
