Worth a Fortune

Remember, old senior citizens are worth a fortune with silver in their hair, gold in their teeth, stones in their kidneys, gas in their stomach, and lead in their feet (and butt). I have become a little older since I saw you last, and a few changes have come into my life since then. Frankly I have become quite a frivolous old gal. I am seeing five gentlemen every day as soon as I wake up. Will Power helps me get out of bed. Then I go see John. Then Charlie Horse comes along and when he is here takes a lot of my time and attention. When he is gone, Arthur Rites shows up and stays the rest of the day. He doesn’t like to stay in one place very long, so he takes me from joint to joint. After such a busy day, I am really tired and glad to go to bed with Ben Gay. What a life!!...

The minister came to call the other day, and he said at my age that I should be thinking about the hereafter. I told him, “Oh I do – all the time. No matter where I am, whether it be in the kitchen or in the basement or upstairs or in the parlor – I ask myself… ‘What am I here after??’”
