Your cooler didn't have the opener built in to the side of it with the box to catch the cap? Maybe my store opted for the upgraded cooler.

I play more doubles than singles in tennis now.

Back and knees hurt every morning.

Paying more and more service folks to do work I used to do.

Takes me longer to get out of the drivers seat on my 335i.

NCAA men's basketball players look like 10 year olds.

Don't remember that one. Had to look it up. Kind of reminds me of Astro Boy. Remember that one?

First aired on TV in 1963.

...or were actually one of the kids on it? Does it make me a bad person?

FWIW, I believe that the woman who was Miss Louise on the NYC version passed away a few years ago, after a long career in education.
