    With all the new technology regarding fertility recently, a 65-year-old woman was able to give birth.

    When she was discharged from the hospital and went home, her relatives came to visit.

    'May we see the new baby?" one asked.

    "Not yet," said the mother. "I'll make coffee and we can visit for a while first."

    Thirty minutes had passed, and another relative asked, "May we see the new baby now?"

    "No, not yet," said the mother.

    After another few minutes had elapsed, they asked again, "May we see the baby now?"

    "No, not yet," replied the mother.

    Growing very impatient, they asked, "Well, when can we see the baby?"

    "When he cries!" she told them.

    "When he cries?" they demanded. "WHY do we have to wait until he cries?"

    "Because I forgot where I put him, ok?!"


    LOL I could've killed my DH the other night, he asked me how I liked being "elderly" (I'll be 56 in 6 weeks);

    I said I don't think of myself as 'anything' regarding age ...

    He said "what else can you call it, being in mid 50s+ is not 'middle-aged' after all..."

    --and yes, he's older (61), he was serious --at least halfway!

    Words DO have power...

    Altho 'Senior" sure beats "elderly"... there's gotta be other better word/s!?! I can accept "elderly" a bit later of course, but the 50s & 60s for most today is not the same as it once was, I think? And I KNOW if a friend of his called him that, he'd be nonplussed!

    Any suggestions? Let's have a vote!?!?!!

    I like the word mature middle aged. Don't like elderly in the 50's or 60's the ones that are still healthy living life are not elderly. Even tho there are many of us that are older than our years because of the illness's that have robbed our bodies of many years.

    I have a 84 yo aunt who could run circles around me,she is trim and NEVER a hair out of place or without makeup.

    There are baby boomers, genex and others I can't recall at the moment,lol. It was there before I started typing the sentence. Now that is elderly,lol. But you know where I am going, I hope so cause I don't, sorry just kidding.

    There needs a be a positive word for those of us in our 50-60. I will be 52 this year. So let's see what someone else has to say-Carla

    A cousin in-law X 2 said I cannot be considered elderly unless I've been a Grandmother a couple of times at least... but hey, I know people in their early 40s who are that and I certainly wouldn't call them elderly LOL...

    and on the other side, I have a video of my aunt when 81 sitting in a yoga position... I can only hope I can do half-way what she did. She lived to be 98, was on her way to put seed in her bird feeder and literally dropped dead.

    YES, we DO need some redefinitions here, at least for a way of thinking if nothing else...
