    I still get chills down my spine, every other day when knowing, there has been a million serial killers waiting for me, down the road inside time frames... I often wonder how did I ever grow up in such fear, and still feel cheerful?

    You know you're old when the AARP magazine has Carlos Santana and Woodstock on the cover. 82792570_949225002358117_2255971175680314525_a.jpg

    The other night found the wife and I dinning at my favorite restaurant. I've frequented that restaurant for over fifty years. The owner came to our table and we started laughing as we recalled the old days when he was bussing tables for his parents and how little the food cost back then. Later he asked if I had retired yet. I told him no, that I enjoyed working, and had no plans to retire. He then told me he was looking forward to retiring and had less than three years until he was 65. Man.. that just doesn't seem possible. I still think of him as that little kid busting his buns in his parents Restaurant.

    Reading the sign that says you must be born before 1998 to buy alcoholic beverages.
    That gets me anytime.

    Also if you ever have to input your date of birth online and you spin that sucker like wheel of fortune to get to your year.

    So I went to the doctor for a check up last Saturday. During the process the doctor made the remark "your still pretty young" that made my bleeping day;):D:cool::blushDroid::cashdroid::thumbsupdroid::specsdroid:

    This is hilarious! :D This quiz on MeTV.com attempts to guess your age, based on your responses to their The Andy Griffith Show quiz. Here's their guess at my age:

    Bwaaahhh! Damn, that's not just telling me "you're old," but "you're really old!" :eek:

    PS I know that 74 is not considered ancient in today's world, but still...

    Wow, that's almost spot-on.

    I think what throws them off is preferring, and knowing more about, the B&W seasons--they assume you watched them in real time. I didn't--I just happen to think they're better.

    Fun quiz though. Maybe I'll try again--answering completely differently--and find out I'm 34, not 74! :D

    Actually, so does mine, but a friend of mine, from High School shared it with me. Guess it made me feel old.

    My youngest just discovered a manual typewriter while we were cleaning out the storage barn. We explained what it was and how it was the only way to write papers on for school when we were kids, no spell-check, etc.

    Oh, the look of horror on that (not so) innocent face!

    If I buy a song I'd like a B-side. Only old folks can relate to B-sides.
