    This neighborhood was built about 35 years ago and the original buyers were all middle aged. About 20 years ago a few of them started to move out. That's when I moved in. I was the first of the "young guys". This year we are having a massive sell off by the last of the old guys. My next door neighbor was 91. There are a bunch of young families moving in with tons of little kids. Halloween should be fun again.

    It's just strange I'm really one of the oldest guys left. I plan on becoming the resident geriatric hippie. Unlike the old guys when I moved in, I love the young neighbors. I'll just educate them with proper music at inappropriate hours.

    Sounds like a good opportunity to scare the crap out of little kids again.

    I hope I never get so old that I don't like the sound of children laughing.

    So
    Sorry Hannie for my post. I forgot that any mention of poop, or a reasonable facsimile thereof, would draw you to the thread. My apologies.

    Yea... when you look around a room full of people and the sudden realization hits that you are the oldest one there...

    The nice part about being an old guy is that the young ladies pretty much relax around you, thinking that you’re harmless. Certain sights you see may raise the blood pressure a bit.

    Also, you can say some inappropriate things, and they will say, “Silly old bugger. Ain’t he cute!”

    I’m enjoying getting older much more than I thought I would.

    I find myself "flirting" with the ladies way more than I ever did... I am not only the "old guy in the room", but I am happily married - so I am not trying to pickup anyone. Really just having fun. I am not talking blatant or even subtle sexual flirting... just joking around and talking.

    as I scanned the audience before the Alice In Chains concert this week, i saw no one older than I.
    not unusual anymore.
    felt "officially old" when i became an orphan fifteen years ago.

    Man, that's one miserable old woman. I feel sorry for her.

    I'm not happy about growing old but its part of the deal and it could be a lot worse. Billions of dead people can attest to that.

    Yes, It's sometimes fun to be the old guy in the group. Most of the time the young Girls will flirt with you too.
    And they look to you for protection.
    They feel safer with you and enjoy you being there.
    My Wife doesn't mind, she knows I'm harmless, and don't mind me flirting, or being Flirted with. She is not Jealous and neither am I. She came back from our Doctors office the other day and told me that The Girls asked about me. They told her that I could always be depended on for a Smile, a Hug, and a Kiss on the Cheek. They always treat me the same way.

    I celebrate being an old guy. It means I survived. Still love Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Cream, JethroTull and all the music circa 1967 - 1975. About to turn 64, and look forward to seeing what comes next.

    Just my 2 cents.

    From my perspective: Yes, broken, and getting capped in a week and half. The less wonderful parts of getting up there.
