Planning to Retire Soon!
If you are planning to retire in the Philippines soon, I suggest you visit several excellent websites on pro's and cons of retiring in the Philippines. However if you want to retire in the provinces, where life is simple, standard of living cheaper, less traffic congestion and pollution, availability of fresh seafood and vegetables compared to the big cities, my island province is the place for you! If this is your first time in my site, welcome. Please do not forget to read the latest national and international news in the right side bar of this blog. Some of the photos and videos on this site, I do not own. However, I have no intention on the infringement of your copyrights.

Have You Heard of the Senior Citizen's Alphabet?
A senior friend from the Philippines send me this article. My friend do not know the author, but we both can identify with the article as senior citizens.
A for arthritis, B for bad back, C is for chest pains. Perhaps cardiac?
D is for dental decay and decline, E is for eyesight--can't read that top line.
F is for fissures and fluid retention, G is for gas (which I'd rather not mention.)
H high blood pressure (I'd rather have low,) I for incisions with scars you can show.
J is for joints, that now fail to flex, L for libido--what happened to sex?
Wait! I forgot about K! K is for my knees that crack when they're bent, (Please forgive me, my Memory ain't worth a cent.)
N for neurosis, pinched nerves and stiff neck, 0 is for osteo- and all bones that crack.
P for prescriptions, I have quite a few. Give me another pill; I'll be good as new!
Q is for queasiness. Fatal or flu? R is for reflux--one meal turns into two
S is for sleepless nights, counting my fears, T for tinnitus--! hear bells in my ears.
U is for urinary: difficulties with flow, V is for vertigo, that's "dizzy", you know.
W is worry, now what's going 'round? X is for X ray--and what might be found.
Y for another year I've left behind, Z is for zest that I still have my mind.
How many of the alphabets, can you relate to? If none, you are still not a senior citizen, but your time will come.
