    The heck with middle age, when does old age start?

    I was visiting my daughter in northern Virginia, and the local news came on. She said that I looked very similar to the newscaster. To me the newscaster looked very similar to one of my grandfathers. When you look like your grandfather, you have to be in old age don't you? I'm getting a walker and one of those motorized chairs tomorrow.

    The guy I allegedly resemble is Joe Krebs.

    He looks middle age to me, but to a young person he would look old!

    As far as when does old age start? Someone once said that for women, it's when your tahs take on the consistency of overripe tomatoes.

    Age is relative. My mother and I were arguing over something as usual, and she says "some day when you get old". I said "what are you talking about? I'm already old". She's 92 and I'm 64.

    A couple years ago I went out to lunch with my folks, the restaurant had a sign posted that said "Children eat free." It turned out the senior discount was a better deal so that is what I took.

    BTW anyone older than me is ancient, anyone younger is a baby and no one is "old" unless they want to be.

    As soon as you let it! I'm a lot younger than a lot of guys I know that aren't as old as I am.

    By looking at them, talking to them you'd swear they were ready for the retirement village.

    Thinking: a friend was over with his 5 year old son.

    Another friend came over and I know him so well he just walked in the door.

    That friend is 11 days younger than I but the 5 year old blurted out "who's that
    fat old grandpa, does he live here too?"

    Kids! But that friend weighs about 90 pounds more than I do so I understand
    where the kid is coming from. I'd hate to hear what he says about me.
