( Eat the color that signifies your symptom,
or on a really bad day. Eat the whole bag !! )

Black is for the sadness and despair
That comes with getting old
Purple is for the color of your hair
That you'll keep under a scarf and rolled
Red is for the arthritis and hurt
Your feeling more and more
White is for your memory
That you've already lost, I'm sure
Green is for the constipation
More fiber is what you'll need
Orange is for the deafness
Don't worry, You'll learn to lip-read
Pink is for the wrinkles
I'm sorry, But you'll have many
And Yellow is for the sex
Because you won't be getting any

"Your hair is now starting to turn gray,
You find a new wrinkle every day.
You notice that your step is slower,
You find your body parts getting lower.
This might come as a bitter pill,
But don't look now- You're over the hill!

A floral arrangement with purple flowers and put the little packages of prune on wire and inserted them in the bouquet so they were always fresh
OR -
50 prune bouquet.
If you make the yoyos its a 3 inch circle of purple felt.
Make your yoyo , put on a wooden skewer as jazbo said add a leaf they turn out real cute for "An Old Prune" -- julie

#1 -

For a "regular" kind of person
"Moving slowly" is truly no fun.
Partake of a prune from this bouquet
And you'll soon be "on the run"!

#2 -

When things aren't moving along quite up to speed
This bouquet of prunes is what you need
You could even say they are "Heaven sent"
When your 'get up and go' has got up and went!

#3 -

You're over the hill now, you surely know
Constipation's no surprise,
We all know the way to save the day
It's right here before your eyes!
You're over the hill now, and thus it seems
To keep your old body from ruin,
An aspirin a day keeps arthritis at bay,
To keep "going", just pluck a prune!

Notes from Marie:
? I've also put individual prunes wrapped in either Saran or cellophane on a bamboo skewer. ? You could black spray paint either an inexpensive glass/plastic vase or basket depending on how big a bouquet you want to make; also spray paint baby's breath black to use as filler (or you could leave it white for contrast).

Age is a pretty high price to pay for maturity.
Don't worry about wrinkles they're just antique smiles
For the unlearned old age is winter: for the learned it is the season of harvest.
Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional!!
I'm chronologically gifted It is easier to get older than it is to get wiser.
It's not how old you are, but how you are old.

Retirement: Twice as much husband, half as much money.
Retirement: When you stop making a living and start making a life.

The Golden Years The trick is to live a long time without growing old.
Warning: Dates in Calendar are closer than they appear.
You are only young once, but you can stay immature indefinitely.
Everyone has a photographic memory. Some just don't have film.
