As the story goes...
To commemorate her 69th birthday , actress/vocalist, Julie Andrews made a special appearance at Manhattan's Radio City Music Hall for the benefit of the AARP. One of the musical numbers she performed was "My Favorite Things"  from the legendary movie "Sound Of Music".  The story adds that Ms. Andrews received a standing ovation from the crowd that lasted over four minutes and repeated encores.

Sadly, the story is NOT true, but the lyrics were a hoot and helped me laugh on an evening where I was feeling particularly old and busted. So I give to you some clever person's parody of 'My Favorite Things'...

Maalox and nose drops and needles for knitting,
Walkers and  handrails and new dental fittings,
Bundles of magazines tied up in string,  
These are a few of my favorite things.

Cadillacs and cataracts ,and hearing aids and glasses,
Polident and Fixodent and false teeth in glasses,
Pacemakers, golf carts and porches with swings,
These are a few of my favorite things.

When the pipes leak,  When the bones creak, When the knees go bad,
I simply remember my favorite things, And then I don't feel so bad.

Hot tea and crumpets and corn pads for bunions
No spicy hot food or food cooked with onions,
Bathrobes and heating pads and hot meals they bring,
These are a few of my favorite things.

Back pain, confused brains and no need for sinnin',
Thin bones and fractures and hair that is thinnin',
 And we won't mention our short shrunken frames,
When we remember our favorite things.

When the joints ache,   When the hips break, When the eyes grow dim,
Then I remember the great life I've had, And then I don't feel so bad.
