    What happened?

    I was driving in my mini van today, when I glanced at the steering wheel, and was shocked to see a pair of bony, wrinkly, birdlike claws grasping it! Worse still, they were coming out of my sleeves! Nearly as bad as the shock I get every time I look in the mirror, and see that gray haired old man looking back! Anybody else ever have that kind of experience? I'm thinking possible alien body snatching.

    Those pesky aliens are no doubt involved, somehow.

    I was shaving around my beard the other day...and for one frightening second, in the mirror, I thought it was Willie Nelson looking back at me.

    Gee, my wife and I were talking about the opposite thing just the other day.

    Our kids keep getting older and now have kids of their own. During the superbowl we noticed how much younger the players looked than our kids. Our parents gradually got older and eventually died. Friends who we haven't seen in awhile? They all look older than the last time we met.

    We, on the other hand, are staying just the same.

    Some comic once said, "Sooner or later, you'll look into a mirror and see your father!"

    I still remember the shock when I shaved my beard off at age 55, after having it for about 25 years, and saw my dad's face looking back at me from the mirror!

    My son recently announced he would be 50 in a few short years. My replay was "Damn, you're getting old".

    You've got to start wearing your cycling golves all of the time.
    Oh I used to be disgusted and now I try to be amused. But since their wings have got rusted, you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes. But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain, that's when I knew that I could not refuse. And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.

    Just had the daughters wedding and saw a lot of relations I have not seen for years. Glad to say they have fared worse than me.

    I often wonder why that old man comes to my house everyday just to shave my face. Never see him any other time...it's odd.
