Aging #1LinerWeds

I don’t remember exactly where I saw this. If I saw it in your post, thanks. Wherever I saw it, it’s true.

One-Liner Wednesday is brought to you each week by Linda Hill and this station. Now a word about Fat Cat with climb-action traction, from Remco!

  1. That is funny and angersome at the same time because it is so true. I look at the kids today and think,..”just wait, your time is coming…”


  2. OMG so true John! Great one-liner. Getting old: I hate it! In fact I’m up now in the middle of the night because a) I had to pee (another sign of old age; I don’t even know what it’s like to have a full night’s sleep anymore!) and b) I figured well, I had to go, surely the dogs have to as well so I let them all out to pee, and c) because I need to microwave the heating pad for my low back because it hurts so damn much! Gettin’ old ain’t for sissies, that’s for sure…

    That Fat Cat (with climb action traction — wonder how long it took the ad men to come up with that line?!) was funny. Hey, it would’ve been a good one for Monday’s animal theme too…

    1. Lymphedema gets me up a few times in the night, so I can sympathize.

      I wasn’t much of a truck guy, but I knew a bunch of kids who were, and one of them had the Fat Cat. I think it took a couple of “D” batteries to run it, and you could get most of an afternoon out of two. Those old batteries didn’t last too long, and had a tendency to leak…


  3. But when we were younger we had to rely on the weather report to know of changes. Guess who knew about the thunderstorms expected here today before the news came on?!


  4. Creaky aches and pains here… reminders of youthful stupidity, when I carried a 117-pound Rhodes mk I stage electric piano by myself because I had no roadies – and because I could. That and reassembling a Yamaha CP-70 electric grand piano by myself – 130-pound keyboard-action section, plus 170 pound harp/strings section.

    Carrying 60-pound backpacks for 10 days in the Sierras. 80-100 miles of weekly bicycle miles with ~2500 total feet of elevation gain. And too much time sitting in front of a computer monitor.

    Yup, it all adds up.


  5. Hahaha! Yes, so many of us can relate. πŸ˜› Wouldn’t it be amazing to wake up pain-free one day? As the old joke goes, that would likely mean we were dead. πŸ˜‰ Those old commercials are always fun to watch. Times sure have changed.


    1. If it ain’t hurtin’, it ain’t workin’, right?

      Nowadays, if you give a kid a toy truck, he’d be like “what the hell is this?” Fifty years ago, we loved that stuff.

  6. Oh my gosh, trying to get my mind off my business & this was the place to do it my friendd… oh thank you… check out that commercial.. I remember that one. That one brought back a lot of old memories too! hahahaha~~ My brother use to push me out of the way to see his commercials & most of the time I’d fall on the floor yelling, “MOMMMMMEEEEEEE”! hehehehe~ Got him in trouble every time! No wonder he hated me.. I was a spoiled little daddy’s girl when I was little & Junior was six years older than me & always playing pranks on me like putting garden snakes in with my Tiny Tears carrying case. What a rotten kid… hahahaha! Later in years I was his jitterbug partner so he could practice at home for the sock hops & we were good & best friends. Okay, thanks for letting me go on!!! Have a great day John… your the best! hugs
