    I heard a commercial this afternoon in the car, Marylou Retton promoting a remedy for hot flashes. OMG. Isn’t she 17? At least I remember her as a cute 17 year old on the balance beam. If she’s gotten old, what’s happened to me?

    When no matter how well groomed you are, you still look like a hobo

    My brother in law who is two years younger than I am, while riding with me one day said, "you've got that old alligator skin." I as gently as I could pointed out to him that he did too, comes with the territory.

    I realized I was old the other day when I tried to load my Vox Super Beatle into my 1964 Volkswagen bug.



    I went ahead and drove off in the Vox instead.

    Turn down that Schoenberg 12 tone nonsense!
    </Dad voice>

    Since Schoenberg did that in the 1920s, my great grandfather could have yelled that at my gramdfather.

    The women believe that it was cute that you posted the photo, not necessarily that your looks are cute to them. However, after I got into my sixties, I seemed to notice that women in my age group seemed to be more curious about my health and assets, as though I might become available at some point.

    Female gymnasts’ first commercial gig is promoting tampons; the menopause products inevitably follow, along with calcium supplements.

    I'm not aged. I'm relic'd. And the process started in my 20s.

    I tried to climb up on the top of a trash can from a 5 gallon paint bucket the other day because I didn't have a ladder handy. I couldn't balance myself. I hate getting old.

    There are some that say you know you're getting old when you realize that you're not as young as you used to be. Maybe. I think you're getting old when you realize that you're not as young as you NEED to be.

    I was asked to join MeWe today by a friend of mine. I asked where we had met her and he laughed.
