    new alphabet

    Hello quilty girls & boys
    I know I am WAY older than all of you, but you will soon catch up, & then you just might need this new alphabet:

    New Alphabet :
    A is for apple, and B is for boat,
    that used to be right, but now it won't float!
    Age before beauty is what we once said,
    but let's be a bit more realistic instead.

    Now The Alphabet:

    A's for arthritis; B's the bad back, C's the chest pains, perhaps car-di-ac?

    D is for dental decay and decline, E is for eyesight, can't read that top line!
    F is for fissures and fluid retention, G is for gas which I'd rather not mention.

    H high blood pressure--I'd rather it low; I for incisions with scars you can show.
    J is for joints, out of socket, won't mend, K is for knees that crack when they bend.
    L 's for libido, what happened to sex? M is for memory, I forget what comes next.
    N is neuralgia, in nerves way down low; O is for osteo, bones that don't grow!

    P for prescriptions, I have quite a few, just give me a pill and I'll be good as new!
    Qis for queasy, is it fatal or flu? R is for reflux, one meal turns to two.

    S is for sleepless nights, counting my fears, T is for Tinnitus; bells in my ears!
    U is for urinary; troubles with flow; V for vertigo, that's 'dizzy,' you know.

    W for worry, now what's going 'round? X is for X ray, and what might be found.
    Yfor another year I'm left here behind, Z is for zest I still have-- in my mind!

    I've survived all the symptoms, my body's deployed,
    and I'm keeping twenty-six doctors fully employed!

    If at first you DO succeed, try not to look so surprised.

      Just exactly describes me today!

      I feel like a MILLION DOLLARS!!! (. . . all green and wrinkled.)
      Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
      it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

      "...pal carajo con la negatividad..."

        Too funny. Thanks for sharing.

        I got a sewing machine for my husband. Good trade, huh!?!


          Re: new alphabet

          That's very funny!

          Hang in there!


            Re: new alphabet

            I laughed all the way through that one. I love it.
            A bed without a quilt, is like a sky without stars:)

              Very cute and oh so true!
              Home, where each lives for the others and all live for God! ><(((((o>

                OK, I was going to say I identify, but then realized that means I am getting OLD! My mother always used to say, " I am not getting old, just older". I have adapted that train of thought. Thanks for the laugh!!!
