Now I feel younger thanx to you John:) My youngest is only turning 6 in July...
That awful 4 isn't that bad after all, I can live with it... (hmmm... )

Just as soon enough I'll have live with the big 60 one day, next stop for Me, 53...


You're still young for a man, Victor :)
Different with women though, they're called 'old' at 50...

Tell that to Barbara Eden, She recently put on the Jeannie costume once again, She works out 3 times a week and lifts weights, not bad for 78.

Still I would like to live up to one of My known ancestors age, 94, but We'll see.

I think it all depends whether you are talking old in appearance as in saggy bits and wrinkles, old in attitude as in a grumpy old person, or old as in physical years. Middle age is supposed to be 45-60, old age over 60, old fogey status over 70. I've been trying to grow old disgracefully for years ....

I can only tell you that in my life I don’t remember ever meeting anyone who was truly ugly. I have always believed that there is a beauty about everyone.

I'm just about the most un-photogenic person on the whole planet!

Nah, that would be either Herman Munster who supposedly could stop a clock just by looking at it or maybe Me.

Vic, not too long ago you had your photo up as your avatar.
Didn't stop or break any clocks within sight of my monitors.....

How "old" you feel is a state of mind.

My father is 89 next month has had two wives, out lived them both and was in his garden cutting down a small tree on Sunday afternoon. He is quite active just problems with his eyesight frustrate him. We still discuss politics and set the world to rights.

I hope I am as active as him if I get to his age.

In the show, Herman would look at mirrors and they'd break, He wasn't bad looking, just that strange/exaggerated things would happen. But that's TV, it wasn't real.

Okay, now you can all see how ugly I am. I added my Facebook profile pic as my avatar here. Before posting it to FB, I carefully cropped and darkened it to hide what I really look like.
