I'm Having A ~Senior~ Moment
~Marge Tindal~ 1999

I'm having a ~Senior~ moment
it's right there in print.
Try as I might,
I can't find out,
where my ~Youthful~ status went.

I've been ~New~
I've been told ...
that I would know
if I was ~Old~.

I've been a babe.
I've been a chick.
I think this ~Senior~ Thing
just might make me sick.  

Well, okay Ron, if you insist.
I guess it's time that I admit,
I'm having a ~Senior~ Moment
and I guess that's it!

Rally round the birthday cake.
Help me blow the candles out.
Ron says I'm a ~Senior~
and he's the one with clout.

I don't think I'll forgive him
for causing me this grief.
I'm having a ~Senior~ moment,
forgive me please.

You've gained your ~Senior~ status rather quickly! Not to worry - to me you'll always be a Forever Young! hehehehehe

Congratulations on your status, Marge! Boy that was fast!

I have to say that senior
makes me think of pensioners
but I guess it's just another way
of saying we're seasoned messengers..*g*

Denise -  Thanks ... I guess that kind of makes it okay, huh?  Forever young I like.

RainbowGirl -  
Now I LIKE THAT THOUGHT
But could we make that
Seasoned Messengers?

Kevin -  
I like the rules.
I'll play your game.
I'm as young as I want to be.
Give me the mind I've got now,
but make my body TWENTY THREE !

A wink from Balladeer
is just the thing for me.
I'm glad I've got
this 'social' security.

They say that when
I'm old enough to collect,
there may not be any cash left
to include in my check.

So I'll just count on
all my friends to see
that while I'm experiencing
a ~Senior~ moment ...
I'm happy as can be !

Oh Marge!
But your poetry is so youthful
Your heart is so young
You're in your prime, honey!
Go for it!

This is really cute Marge...lol
I go by the old adage...'You're not getting older, you're just getting better'....'S'....


 A soul that writes from the heart and shares it, truly gives a gift extraordinaire!

Love it Marge!  Gee I thought I had at least 25 years left before I hit senior status! LOL

Well this Senior is taking her old butt to bed now




Goodnight and sweet dreams!

Elizabeth, my friend -  
I'm only having a ~Senior~ moment at Ron's expense.  
Other than that ... I'm a teeny-bopper.
Prime, huh?  I'll try to remember that.

Pepper -  I'm not sure about that adage.
It should read something like ...
you're not getting older ... you're not getting older ... you're not getting older !
LOL !  
I long ago learned that I like whatever year I'm in ... especially when you consider the alternatives !

Caroline -  I've got a few too.  But, for all concerned, AARP now tells me that I qualify for membership.  
McDonald's little juvenile delinquents wait for me to ask for my ~senior~ coffee.
But, my bank still hasn't offered me FREE checking !  Go figure !

LOL....well, at least you have determined what you are. I'm at a loss of what my title means. I think it's Rons way of cursing at me
