From Gary Edens via Alan Berson (author unknown) – with a nod to my good friends, guides and mentors Robin Dyke and Bob Seelert.
Twelve Things to Remember.
1)         Talk to yourself. There are times you need expert advice.
2)         ‘In Style’ are the clothes that still fit.
3)         You don’t need anger management.  You need people to stop pissing you off.
4)         Your people skills are just fine.  It’s your tolerance for idiots that needs work.
5)         The biggest lie you tell yourself is, “I don’t need to write that down.  I’ll remember it.”
6)         ‘On time’ is when you get there.
7)         Even duct tape can’t fix stupid, but it sure does muffle the sound.
8)         It would be wonderful if we could put ourselves in the dryer for ten minutes, then come out wrinkle-free and three sizes smaller? 
9)         Lately, you’ve noticed people your age are so much older than you.
10)     Growing old should have taken longer.
11)     Ageing has slowed you down, but it hasn’t shut you up.
12)     You still haven’t learned to act your age and hope you never will.
And one more:
“One for the road” means peeing before you leave the house.
