The Adventures of Getting Old

I was in the doctor’s office again yesterday. It seems my blood pressure has a mind of its own and continues to rise despite the array of drugs I am taking.

One drug worked fine but it had a side effect that would require me to take an additional drug should I want to get funky with the Mrs. I used to think that condition was funny, not so much now. I stopped taking that drug right away and restored my man stuff.

So we tried this new drug and the doctor said the side effects might be a dry cough and my lips could swell. As long as other parts of my body swell then fat lips are fine by me.

Well, I now have a dry cough, normal lips, and normal other stuff along with a dry cough with high blood pressure.

Gigi is suggesting yoga classes. Do men have to put on those body suits to do yoga?

I probably told you more then I needed to, buy hey, aren’t we all family here? Besides getting old is an adventure I’m finding out and I wanted to share.

Hell of an adventure all right.

Take a green one
Take a yellow one
Take the pink one in the morning time
Take a blue one
Take them all the time, cause they all go down just the same.

but did you ever take the "other" pill? I laugh at the commercials telling you to tell your doctor if "it" lasts more than 4 hours. If I ever get "it" to last 4 hours, forget calling the doctor, I'm calling everyone I know.

No....I never took one of those pills. Gigi didn't want any part of it.
