Besides the first pair of those "reading glasses"
When you have to decide rather you want to step over the trailer tongue or walk around.

Heck, glasses since I was 15! Old is a state of mind IMHO.

Staying active has to be a way of life, as long as you are physically able.

I really felt 'old' when the doc said I have a heart situation 5 years ago; but I'm still 'tickin' & 'kickin'

"OLD" is when the doctor looks like a 'kid'

You know you are an old inspector when 110.26(D) is your most common violation.

Being a gray haired sort of gent from a young age I used to say "Better gray hair than no hair" Till the other week when I decided that a crew cut would suit my maturing years better.

Now I say "Reciding hair line. Its not sore" [Linked Image]

I found myself single again at age 37. At that point in time, any gal who had finished college was in an age range where it was plausible that we could date. Fifteen years is a bit of a stretch, but there are certainly many mainstream couples around where the husband is 15 years older than the wife.

After several years of being single, it was quite a shock to realize that many of the attractive women of marriagable age around me were way too young. No longer was any available SYT fair game. [Linked Image]
