Happy birthday to TR members TiggerTwo and cmiller5400!
I'm getting my baseball bat and am going to beat abcshopping### and wholemkt### with it. These two are driving us all crazy, which is a shorter drive for some than it is for others. Lynching is too good for these evil spammers!

... I just love you!

I got my first bifocals in my mid 30s and am not allowed to drive without them according to the State of Minnesota.

Of course, I got my first gray hair at the age of 8. True story. Lady Clairol is a good friend.

A friend of mine told me that now that I'm old, I am now entitled to say and do whatever I want because I will now be considered "wise". That works for me!

Even though I probably do need glasses to see distant objects
a bit more clearly, when I went to have my driver license renewed,
the state license folks had me remove my glasses for the picture???
What? OK, fine with me...plus there is still no "restriction" on my
license that I have to wear "corrective" lenses! But I think I've
figured out what they really wanted...an unrestricted view of the
crows-feet around my eyes!! Sneaky devils! I wonder if state
department employees sit around getting their laughs from
counting the wrinkles in my picture??
They also "grandfathered" (subliminal terminology??) my
motorcycle operating license, been riding for close to 40 years,
guess they figured I didn't need to take the state test to demonstrate
a proficiency at operating a motorcycle.
Oh, they do eventually offer a perk to older folks, at age 65
or so they waive the fee to renew a drivers license...again,
no test to show ability though???
Just some of those things that make me say "Hmmmmm!"

I'm Growing Old Disgracefully.

The Kids just leave me alone and no one else bothers particularly the Police when I pull off a Full Face Helmet and ask What's wrong Sonny?

Of course I take after my father who at 75 took Early Retirement according to everyone he worked with they kept asking why he was retiring at 50.

Me, I'm following the Jimmy Buffett model:

I look at them as a "face accessory". I had to take my glasses off in NJ too for my driver's license photo, but my license says I wear corrective lenses. Now, in NJ, you are no longer able to smile for your license photo either because it upsets the facial recognition technology . I wouldn't be surprised if they were data-mining those crows-feet. You never know about us oldies.

One of the biggest disappointments of aging was getting bifocals. I appreciated them for several days, until the first time I was walking behind my wife. I glanced down to check out her fanny and was appalled to realize it was out of focus; I was viewing it through the lower 'near vision' lens. I could tilt my head down, but then it becomes apparent to everyone what I'm doing.

Hey, at least it was your wife's fanny! You're forgiven.

I have had a small gray streak in my hair for years (since I was young). Now I am starting to slowly go totally gray (must be the stress of the IT industry ). I'm only 33; my Mom says that I look "distinguished"
