Caught By Surprise

The longer I'm in this old world It seems the older that I get I guess I knew that would happen I just didn't think it would be yet Wait a minute, I'm over weight? I didn't think that would happen I walk a block for my fast food Maybe it was all the nappin I have to stop and catch my breath When I drag back that old trash can What used to be just a speed bump Is a mountain to this old man Caught by surprise, it's quite a shock When I lift my protective sheath I guess I'll have to suck it up Has anybody seen my teeth?

Priceless, Pat! Priceless! I'm the female version - brought in the trash bin just this morning and spend my days trying to keep from falling! Priceless! You made my day!

That makes me happy Sunlite, that it made your day, not that you can relate. I don't fall down at all but about 3/4 of everything I get a hold of does!.......Oh well....Later, Pat
