    Heh,heh,heh. Yeah you can lose weight up the yahoo and go to the gym and work out for hours but the fact is that you are still 60++ and nothing is going to change that.
    You can think young and behave like a teenager but you aint gonna turn back the clock . Ya just live with it , hope you stay healthy , and make the best of whatever is left.

    Well I'll share a little personal info here and I bet I won't be alone. I got caught up in this grown children come back home thing. According to the National News, its the latest thing. My youngest ,recently divored, daughter, now 35 came back home with the two grandkids 'bout 4 yrs ago . I only had a single wide mobil home w/2 bedrooms (everything paid off), but, I had a extra lot I could build on. Well fast forward 4 yrs and she's now living upstairs and I'm living in the basement of a new doube wide manufactured home (trailerhouse) W/30yr mortgage. According to the bank I gotta live tilll I'm 85 now. We'll see how that goes. I guess I live by default, I go by "what happens next". Now, we're countin' every nickel and trying to keep the electric bill down, hence the used pellet stove. I suppose Too Much Information, here. bjr23

    Here`s something I just received today and kinda relevent to our thread with regards to us old folks.

    As I've aged, I've become kinder to
    myself, and less critical of myself. I've become my own friend. I don't
    chide myself for eating that extra cookie, I am entitled to a treat, to be messy, to be extravagant.

    I have seen too many dear friends leave this world too soon; before they
    understood the great freedom that comes with aging.

    Whose business is it if I choose to read or play on the computer until 4 AM
    and sleep until noon?

    I know I am sometimes forgetful. But there again,
    some of life is just as well forgotten. And I eventually remember the
    important things.

    Sure, over the years my heart has been broken. How can your heart not break
    when you lose a loved one, or when a child suffers, or even when somebody's
    beloved pet gets hit by a car? But broken hearts are what give us strength
    and understanding and compassion.
    So many have never laughed, and so many have died before their hair could
    turn silver.

    As you get older, it is easier to be positive. You care less about what
    other people think. I don't question myself anymore. I've even earned the
    right to be wrong.

    I like being old. It has set me free. I like
    the person I have become. I am not going to live forever, but while I am
    still here, I will not waste time lamenting what could have been, or
    worrying about what will be. And I shall eat dessert every single day (if I
    feel like it).

    The older folks will likely continue to be in the minority, and I s'pose it's anyone's guess as to why...don't have computers, don't spend their time on the Internet, don't give a crap, whatever. Here's a thread from some time ago when I asked the same question in the Hearth Room. If anyone wants me to re-open the thing so that they can respond and see the poll results, I can do that. Rick

    This is not the type of thing people usually proclaim, but kudos to you man for making your undies last!

    BTW, just turned 34 on Friday. Scorpios are statistically in the highest percentage of people who are murdered so I have some excitement to look forward to.

    My Dad is a Ret. SGM, I'll ask him how many stripes his shorts have. I'll get back to you.

    Tell your Dad 'Thanks!'. I was a submariner during Vietnam in the Pacific roaming around that area. I got a few extra stripes a few times on those patrols too.

    I'm female, so I refuse to answer this... Suffice to say I hit 40 a few years ago and since then stopped aging.

    Aah! Yur all a bunch of whipper snapper kids. The youngest son of one of my friends calls me a cantankerous and cranky old goat. Actually, I am older than God's goat. However, most gorgeous young women call me gorgeous, loveable, handsome, huggable, adorable, charming, a hunk and cute. They also say I have great hair, the best teeth, and dress impeccably. I will not confirm or deny any of these charges. I have just repeated what I hear THEM say.

    At age 71 I enjoy being a little silly. Hell, I even enjoy being a lot silly!

    With the large numbers of members in the two higher age groups, perhaps pellet producers should start making long range plans for packaging in 20 or 25 pound bags.
