I was looking the other day, and thought I didn't look too old - just classic ...

On those rare occasions when I feel "old", I go visit some of my WWII-vintage shipmates & comrades - those in their high 80s and 90s that still get out and about - they call me "kid" and "youngster" and I don't feel so ancient.

Hey Don, I've always wondered, do you pronounce it "sub-mah-REEN-er" or "sub-MARE-ih-ner"?

Both are used, but each has its partisans. I prefer SUB-mah-reen-er, because I rode SUB-mah-reens, not sub-MARE-ens. But unlike some of my shipmates, I won't throw beer bottles or insult your parentage or education if you say it another way....

It is said "You are as old as the woman you feel" - I bumped into an 18 year old the other day, now does that make me 18 years old again??

I've no idea Chris, Grace hates collars with a passion, I can imagine that cat doesn't like that costume much either.
