Old Age Is.....

I agree with this statement....

... although I'm not quite there yet, it's steadily approaching, and I'm not very keen on the alternative.

That's quite a statement. I agree.

What a sense of humor those Peelars had! Love it.

Why are Nelson and Myrtle in quotes? Nicknames??

What a wonderful statement. They must have known. I certainly begin to say the same thing.

lol

Hilary said...

With a sense of humour like that, they must have been Peelars of the community. ;)

I hope my headstone makes someone laugh someday. What a wonderful gift to leave behind.

That's exactly what my 93 year old father said the other day.

I'll bet they were a fun couple with a line like that! They said it like it was.

old age may be a bugger, but it beats the hell out of the alternative.....

Wendy said...

LOL! I wonder who put that on their headstone. Children? Nieces and nephews? Sisters and brothers (not likely). They sure had a sense of humour!

What a wonderful, unfortunately true, statement to put on gravestone! Wish I could have met them; must have been a nice couple with their nicknames and everything!

Libby said...

Brilliant! So true though!!!

I was reading blogs and you know how one thing leads to another site, another click, and I saw yours here - I am lauging my ass off at that comment on the grave stone. Bravo - Peelars! For a wonderful sence of hunor. Life's an adventure. Thanks for sharing.

That is a great statement. I have to agree that at times it really is a bugger. Considering the alternative perhaps its not so bad.

Isn't that the truth! Life becomes more precious every single day, Sham!

Hi, I had never heard of a "Peeler" until now, a quick look on the internet reveals it was probably an early American Policeman. What we in the UK would probably have called a "Copper" or a "Bobby", we are aways learning.

rosemary said...

Yup....the alternative is the bugger.

Neva said...

What a hoot....they must've been a fun couple!

Old age is a bugger and it sure is NOT The Golden Years. In fact, The Golden Years SUCK, Big-Time! (lol)
