    One day it dawned on me that my favorite songs are "classic rock", I don't know any of the songs on the "new rock" radio station and I don't like them either. That was the first time I felt old.

    The second time I felt old was when I realized that I (1) get up early no matter what, (2) I watch documentaries and the news, and often yell at the TV, and (3) I complain about the price of stuff, usually comparing "it" to what "it" cost 20 years ago.

    I never play my '72 Precision at bars. I only played it at weddings until they too, got out of control. HH

    I made it past the 55 threshold and thought I was doing okay. Then my wife comes home from the bank and informs me that she changed our checking account to an "old goat" account, meaning we got free checking, free travelers checks, etc.

    Couple of weeks ago I was having lunch and a young (early 20's) waitress comes by my table with the coffee pot.
    Without asking, she tops my cup off and even before I got "thank you"out of my mouth, she says "my Grandpa likes his coffee to be really hot and I thought you like it that way too"!:steamed::crying::supergrin::rofl:

    I was talking with my 12 year-old Stepdaughter last week about cameras and when I started talking about different types of film, she went blank and asked what camera film was.

    I felt older than King Tut's farts.

    When I was getting ready for my first colonoscopy,the Doc said " Don't worry,it's only about the diameter of a finger,But,it's marked off in FATHOMS"

    Don't you just love medical humor??

  12. Well to be fair, that mix crosses a broad spectrum. So at any given moment she might not have known the particular song Gramps and the Gray Beards were playing :)
     
  13. Well I'm 61 today and glad to make it this long,( had a minor stroke in August). Anyway I was at Mickey D's a few months ago to get coffee and the kid said that will be 62 cents, or some thing like that, can't really remember. I said I thought it was a dollar he says "senior discount". He might have been 18, at least he didn't say sir.

    My mother was living in a retirement home and changing apartments and I was helping her move. One of the other residents asked me if I was moving in.
