Oldest Combined Age: Couple, Single, Pets :)

Everyone says Nancy and I do not look our age.

My next thought... what are they trying to sell us today?

- Married Couple combined ages and combined Pet ages.

- Single person and combined Pet ages.

Nancy, myself and two Blue Heelers: 161 Years.

We could go combined weights, but then estimates do not count and are usually inaccurate. I am six feet tall and between 175 to 180 pounds. At the Doctor's annual physical, I look at the chart and I am borderline Obese. I like to know who put that together.

But age. Can anyone beat 161 years combined? No rounding up for a year. Your pets must be living with you.

We easily hit 174 based on the low side of current veterinarian estimates of how old our 4 little rescue dogs are. We dont have first hand knowledge of their age for two of them. The two elder ones have been with us over 10 years each.

But keep in mind, its not the age, its the mileage. Im feeling the mileage.

Officially Im 5 foot 12 inches tall (according to the draft board lady, who rounded up my height when I registered back in the 60s). My weight ranges from 190-211 depending on the number of restaurant meals and trips to Disney where a lot of walking takes place.

DWs statistics, of course, are highly classified, and if I told you, Id have to immediately kill you and eat your brain...as the saying goes.

Im often greeted with great surprise if I happen to let someone know (close to) my actual age. Generally I obfuscate for online security reasons. My usual answer to, are you over 21? Is , Yes, at least three times. Bless you, child, for asking!

The real shocker is the fact that DW and I, total opposites, are rapidly approaching a full half century of marriage to each other. That how and why we havent figured out quite yet...get that question a lot.

If you add up my husband, myself our three dogs and two cats, we are a young 155. When you add in my mother who lives with us full-time bump that up to 237! Some days, I feel every bit of that 237!!!
