I've had so many people take me for being in my late 40s - early 50s that it's become annoying. People in their mid-fifties saying to me things like Wait 'til you become my age when complaining about some difficulty they're having. The gal who cuts my hair was actually astonished when I told her my age. My dentist double checked my age with me because he thought my actual age was an error in my chart. At work I was poking some fun at a cow-orker's age while discussing said cow-orker with his thirty something manager. The manager didn't seem to appreciate the humor; until, I explained that I was the same age. Then he laughed and said I never would have thought that. So, I can't even tell age related jokes about people my own age without others thinking I'm being politically incorrect.

Maybe I should've been an old soul instead of young at heart to balance things out. It would've made it easier to attain my calling in life to become a dirty old man.

That's because you're physically fit, and have always had to be to do your job.

When I was 20 I thought 40 was crazy old.

Now, I think old starts around 80, and at the rate my life has seemed to pass I figure I'll be turning 80 a month a go.

See, now I didn't. Even when I was much younger, 'old' to me conjured a picture of someone with white hair, a walking stick and a lapdog. Or variations thereof.

When I was 17 I had the hots for an older guy I used to see in a cafe I went to regularly. I think he was probably in his late 30s/early 40s.

In many of the places I have worked, and certainly during my time as a councillor, I engaged with colleagues in their 60s and even early 70s and there was nothing old about them.

I think it's a state of mind - and also health I guess - setting aside obvious stuff like dementia or crippling arthritis, I think it is as much about what someone projects, which is in itself about how they perceive themselves.

I have known people in their late 50s who have seemed old. Everything about them - their style of dress, the music they like, their attitude to technology and their engagement with the world. At the same time I know people in their 60s and 70s who are vibrant and project a much younger self. I find it hard, mentally, to attach the word 'old' to them.

Bean is no longer quite so little -- she's four and a half now and a crazy ball of energy and questions!

But you were gone long enough to notice.

I know, because you were gone.

And I noticed.

thank you for checking in!

If you can't bring yourself to post some more and bring us all up to date, please at least give my best to Choco and Bean.

Nice seeing you again Kitsune. Come on back some, hm? Catch us up on life in Florida.

I notice that Orthodoc has returned.

Now, if we could just find Carruthers...
