    Okay kats and kittens I have a question.We went to a NewYears gathering lastnight and I was asked to give the toast because I was the oldest ont there.I was called "the old man" the rest of the night.Iam 62 and dont feel old in my mind but the body is giving out.What I would like to know is when is it time to resign to the fact that you are indeed old? By the way this old guy took four poeple home cuz they couldnt drive.:smile2:

    Depends on who you ask! My students who range from 14-18 usually, think that 35/40 is OLD! I however think 60 is lookin REAL young to me! I am 51 as of this month! I agree that's it's in your perception and I have always said that I will never get old as long as I teach, cuz being around youth day in and day out keeps me thinkin' young! n dat is whut I like! LOL!

    If your still kicken then you should not have any time to think about age. Were not old they are just young (Thats the way my grandaddy said it)

    I've always been told that you know your old when that 48 yr old looks better to you than her 18 year old daughter. :wink:
