cmyx6go my wife turned 60-something on Saturday. We were out at dinner and NEITHER of us could remember how old I had picked a bunch of scratchers based on 62, which is why she didn’t win anything

Memory is the second thing to go …

Jeees, all this time I thought you were old! You're about the same age as me and I know that I'm not old so you can't be!

Congratulations Kid. What plans do you have for the next half?

I'll always be 29...plus shipping and handling.

Right now, my shipping and handling is starting to exceed my age.....

I've been 29 for 46 years. Make that 47 years this July.

Happy Birthday! I remember turning 60 and thinking I was old. Now, 13 years later, I'm realizing that the past years have been amazing. You have a lot to look forward to if you approach life the way I think you do based on your posts. Please report back when you turn 70 and let us know what an awesome decade you had.

In 1971, my dad was 48 and said he'd noticed that time was passing faster and faster as time went on.

That's been my experience, too, and I think in that context the old adage of 'if you want to do or experience something, there's no time like the present to get started on it' holds true.

Yes, indeed, and a very unpleasant fact that can be, too.

I lived off the strength of my memory at work, and today it's sometimes amazing how much it's diminished. Not general memories of the past so much, but more proper nouns. I'll ask the wife "Who was that gal who worked at such-and-such and did such-and-such with us when we lived at..." Those aren't particularly exciting interchanges in this household these days when we both go "I can't remember."

Funny – my dad was 29 until he passed at 75. Must be a popular age to be.

Mostly hurt my pride, although the fall did draw some blood on my knee cap. It seems to have undone some of my knee damage caused by the e-bike fall last year. I did manage to walk around the tree farm in the rain the next day.

Ironically, I fell trying to do the right thing and stay off of someone else's lawn at a rest area that was being renovated. Most people were walking across the grass, but I decided to take the sidewalks and fell on some steps where the handrails were removed and replaced with temporary chains between posts.....
