Now 70 and used MailWasher since its inception. Still play with Wii with my grand-daughter. AND no grey hairs (like my father).

Well 50, 52, 55, 57, whatever no big deal, they all are about the same.

Just a bit older and a whole lot wiser. Oh if I knew when I was 25 what I know now! WHOA baby. :devil

If you're in the U.S. and over 50, you know the dread of the first junk mail asking you to join the AARP (American Association of Retired Persons) that arrives for your 50th birthday. They know how old everyone is.

Except my son. He got one of those letters for his 20th birthday. That's what comes of writing your "9's" so they look like "4's" when you fill out forms. :oops:

I wanted my AARP card as soon as I hit 5-0, "gimmie my coupons and discounts dammit". :rant

After years of people questioning my credentials because I looked too young, I'm going to enjoy every minute of it now that it's to my advantage ;)

OMG, I can't believe it, despite all the crazy stuff I've done for years I've actually made it this far.

I turned the BIG 6-0 on Sept. 28! Strange, I don't think 6-0, act 6-0 but the calendar says it's true.

.....and I'm not even thinking about any other milestones for a long while. :cheers

This web developer is 64.

Went back to school in 1998 and took to computer technologies like a duck to water.

22 customers; web hosting, too.

Shame I can't make much money, though - merely a penalty of self-indulgence and cowardly marketing.

What ever happened to "never trust anyone over 30"? :scratch

As a teenager I guess it sounds cool.

.....hey, maybe I'll put on some Hendrix or Zeppelin (and I also still have them in 8 track).

I'm pleased to see that I'm still a mere youngster at 65, even if I don't feel too sprightly after moving tons of Christmas Stock around this week for our Candle Shop in town!
I need to earn on line to provide a big enough "Pension" to pay off all the debts this recession has brought me.......... workin' on it, but not efficiently enough!

When I was 6 I couldn't wait to be 7, so I could learn to ride a bike.
Then when I was 10 I couldn't wait till I was 13, every one I knew was a teenager.
Then when I was 15, I couldn't wait to be 16, so I could drive, hardly any one I knew was 20.
When I turned 20 I could hardly wait to be 21, so I could legally drink beer, hardly any one was over 30.
I got married and got a good job, had a family, retired at 51, hardly any one I knew was over 65.
Had our grand children, and now our first great grand son, and guess what, 76 doesn't look to bad.

75 years old, married for 54 years, worked at one job for 30 years, retired 24 years ago.

Delighted to see that I'm by no means the oldest here at 62. :P .... despite having recently been told that I look like a hard-drinking 61 year old! :(
