If the program will allow it, put the decimal sign in there to make it even stronger.

By the way, I just passed your tip on to a friend of mine. She has been using familiar dates and names to protect her computer and her daughter has been breaking into it. Please allow me to thank you on her behalf.

Since I can't see where anyone has posted it, I'll be the one to say it:

"Getting old sucks -- but it still beats the alternative."

Here's another thought:

"Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional."

RETIREE HEALTH MESSAGE

As I was lying in bed pondering the problems of the world, I rapidly realized that I don't really give a rat's ass. It's the tortoise life for me!

1.. If walking is good for your health, the postman would be immortal.

2.. A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks water, and is fat.

3.. A rabbit runs and hops and only lives 15 years.

4.. A tortoise doesn't run and does nothing, yet it lives for 450 years.
And you tell me to exercise?? I don't think so.

I'm retired. Go around me.

God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

Now that I'm older here's what I've discovered:

1. I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it.

2. My wild oats have turned into prunes and all-bran.

3. I finally got my head together, and now my body is falling apart.

4. Funny, I don't remember being absent-minded.

5. Funny, I don't remember being absent-minded.

6. If all is not lost, where is it?

7. It is easier to get older than it is to get wiser.

8. Some days, you're the dog; some days you're the hydrant.

9. I wish the buck stopped here; I sure could use a few.

10. Kids in the back seat cause accidents.

11. Accidents in the back seat cause kids.

12. It's hard to make a comeback when you haven't been anywhere.

13. The only time the world beats a path to your door is when you're in the bathroom.

14. If God wanted me to touch my toes, he'd have put them on my knees.

15. When I'm finally holding all the cards, why does everyone want to play chess?

16. Its not hard to meet expenses . . . they're everywhere.

17. The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.

18. These days, I spend a lot of time thinking about the hereafter . .
.I go somewhere to get something, and then wonder what I'm hereafter

19. Funny, I don't remember being absent-minded.

20. DID I POST BEFORE..........??????

Default Old age.......

When your family thinks its time to take away your toys. Because you can't drive to the range, and you start shooting phone books inside the bed room..........

You know you're getting old when you start forgetting to zip up. But it's getting serious when you forget to zip down...

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I'm 68 and as far as my shooting skills go, I have seen no drop off that is noticeable to me. I work out with weights 6 days a week and keep in good shape for my age. The thing that bothers me is that I'm tired of carrying my G36 every day. It just bothers me to have that weight around my waist or in my Pocket Holster but I will continue to do this until I no longer care about Guns or Self Defense or maybe not!
