Aches And Pains



Aches and pains, aches and pains Is this what old age is about? What about sailing off into the sunset Instead we complain about gout It hasn't been bad at least not for me Been one of the fortunate ones Count all my blessings every night Each morn I welcome the sun Why me I ask, how come I'm the one To escape those old age symptoms Like gall stones, cholesterol, and diabetes Lived a lifetime most can't fathom One day, that day will be upon me Hope the hell it's quick and painless A sissy I am and I always will be Perhaps I'll continue to be blessed © Jack Ellison 2013

    My 107 Aunt used to say... Stay active and the pain stays away... Worked for her!... Now with Dragon... The more active he is... the more bruises we get... I began sitting down too much when I broke a few bones and everything ached. Started running around and all the pains went away!... for now... I'm lucky. They told me to be careful with my ankles. I have considerable arthritis is them... Never knew I had any there... Maybe like Dragon... I'm not all there!... He heard me! Gotta run!... LOL

    Oh yes, aches and pains... they come and go, travel from legs to back to arms to feet!!! Must say I've been pretty lucky and free of it until this year. My old legs have supported this body for a long long time... they're finally complaining! LOL Hang in there! Hugs xoxox
