1. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.
2. In a hostage situation you are likely to be released first.
3. No one expects you to run--anywhere.
4. People call at 9 pm and ask, "Did I wake you?"
5. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.
7. You can eat supper at 4 pm.
8. You can live without sex but not your glasses.
9. You get into heated arguments about pension plans.
10. You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.
11. You sing along to elevator music.
12. Your secrets are safe with your friends, because they can'tremember them either.
13. Your supply of brain cells are finally down to a manageable size.

Loved your over 50 perks. Sheesh, I can't believe how many of them I live by, LOL! I signed up for your newsletter, Mary! Can't wait to read it : )

Did you get the copy I forwarded to you? I don't know if I can send you from from the group without re-sending it to everyone.

I am such a techno-dork.

If the Heartsong Presents books don't get there you can buy them through the Barbour website or wait a year and buy it as part of a collection with my other two HPs The Clueless Cowboy and The Bossy Bridegroom.

Over 50, indeed . . . I had to laugh at the list because some of them rang true. I think, though, that we over 50's are doing quite well.

I'm still looking forward to being over fifty- but I still enjoyed your post!

The first one reminded me of one of my favorites that I find quite comforting- "All other factors aside, fat people are harder to kidnap."

Very funny! Many on the list are a little too familiar! Yikes!

You're not over 50.
