Gene - So that was you in Austin all those years ago, on the other side of the stage, your head buried on the speaker!! I always wondered who the other ZZT nut was. You won't remember, but I had my straw cowboy hat in my hand, my head also too close to the beat & was wearing my Navy-issue faded blue bell bottoms. The hat helped to start a camp fire, the nice head of hair is 'thinning out' and I still want those bell bottoms back! In retrospect, not worth the loss of hearing, but a great time to recall never the less.

I wish the poll also had people 70-79, 80-89, and maybe older.

Whitsend, my head was in the speaker in Niagara Falls, not Austin. I see you just celebrated 10 years as a Forum member. Congratulations.

Gene

In all seriousness Gene, there's nothing like a visit to opthamologist to make you feel real old, real fast. E - O - L - B? Oh wait, I think that's an R. No it's a B. I'm going to say it's a B.

Your friends,
I've had to wear hearing aids (2) most of all my 74 years. I do not know what 'normal' hearing is so I don't feel handicapped.....except when the batteries die.

Ole 'Ben must have said that after his kite/lightning experiment. It doesn't make any sense to me.

You (and I) are only as old as you (or I) choose to be. Years since birth often don't even factor in.

Someone recently pointed out to me that I am a smart ass. (a fact that I am already aware of and perhaps even proud of). While contemplating this, I decided it was preferable to the alternative. To me logically , that would be being a dumb ass.


Ken

By the way, I am 68, in time only, for another month and a half

I'm 56, but 57 is Sneakinup on me! I'm a lot older since I got my Airstream though. It's keeping me young, and killing me at the same time. I suppose that is what a "younger woman" would do. She is born in 1977.

The real woman in my life is 3 months younger than me... and in WAY better shape than my Airstream!

So is it bad that I'm 34 and feeling semi old-ish? It might be the fact that I'm surrounded by actors most of the time, but still, I don't see many of my peers restoring vintage airstreams because they find the lure of a mirror shine important... Perhaps I'm "seasoning" early...

Check the forum rules. I'm pretty sure it is a violation to use the words puppy or kitten without accompanying photo documentation.

I seriously have NO idea how people have kids and restore an airstream. My children would be in foster care so quickly their heads would spin:-) Just kidding....kinda....
