Thoughts about those of us blessed with many decades

A beautiful young person is a Coincidence of Nature.     A beautiful old person is a Work of Art.     attributed to William Shakespeare 

One’s Inner Self designs & illuminates one’s True Beauty.       anonymous 

Young People think fast.  Old People think deep.       an African saying

And a joke to end 2016 and start 2017:

An old doctor became very bored in retirement & decided to open a medical clinic.

He put a sign up outside that said:

“Dr Geezer’s Clinic.  Get your treatment for $500.  If not cured, get back $1,000.”

Doctor “Young,” who was positive that this old geezer didn’t know beans about medicine, thought this would be a great opportunity to get $1,000 so he went to Dr Geezer’s clinic.

Dr Young: “Dr.Geezer, I have lost all taste in my mouth.  Can you please help me?”

Dr. Geezer: “Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 & put 3 drops in Dr Young’s mouth.”

Dr. Young: Aaagh!! — “This is Gasoline!”

Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations!  You’ve got your taste back.  That will be $500.”

Dr Young gets annoyed & goes back after a couple of days figuring to recover his money.

Dr Young:  “I have lost my memory, I cannot remember anything.”

Dr Geezer: “Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 & put 3 drops in the patient’s mouth.”

Dr Young:  “Oh, no you don’t,  — that is Gasoline!”

Dr Geezer: “Congratulations!  You’ve got your memory back.  That will be $500.”

Dr. Young (after having lost $1000) leaves angrily & comes back after several more days.

Dr.Young: “My eyesight has become weak — I can hardly see anything!!!!”

Dr. Geezer: “Well, I don’t have any medicine for that so here’s your $1000 back.”  (giving him a $10 bill)

Dr. Young: “But this is only $10!”

Dr. Geezer:  “Congratulations! You got your vision back!  That will be $500.”

Moral of story  — Just because you’re “young” doesn’t mean that you can outsmart an “old Geezer”.

Remember: Don’t make old people mad.  We don’t like being old in the first place, so it doesn’t take much to tick us off.
