    ...you have to put on reading glasses to trim your fingernails so that you can practice songs that nobody cares about anymore on your old broken down acoustic guitar.

    I feel old when I hear songs I used to jam out to on "Classic rock" stations. Or, before I retired from mil, I would see guys coming in with birth dates before I joined.

    Middle age for me was a moving target because I didn't think I was even going to live this long :D

    Typing on a smart phone but remember party lines . And a old gun/sports writer I believe it was Robert Rourke said . Women ,guns and booze are what's important in life. Age makes the difference what order they are in . Or something like that

    Yep. When you have to keep scrolling down to find your birth year on the drop down menu, you start feeling old. I think they do that on purpose. Bastards.

    Saw a meme recently that said, "You know you're getting old when you are filling out a form on your phone and you have to spin that year selector thing like you are playing Wheel of Fortune"!!!

    Me. I know I'm getting old when I get up out of my recliner and make those 'dad' noises.



    Then I ran across this one yesterday.

    This describes me in the morning. Apparently, I have Chronic Hypothermia!

    When you consider a Middle Aged person a young one and you look at a 40 year old as a child! When your skin crackles when you scratch yourself.

    Don't worry, I'll fix this for all of you. Since we're on the subject I'm sure that more than a few of you wear one of the following... Because nothing says it quite like these.
