OT- I\'m old

I went to change my picture in my signature and realized that it sayed "old hand" under my name.
It looked like old man at first!! [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] It also doesn't help that Jeepchick found gray hairs in my EYEBROWS!!! A few on my head wasn't so bad, but they're heading south too!! [img]images/graemlins/thud.gif[/img]
Sorry, had to gripe for a minute. I think that's what old men like to do. [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

LOL, I just turned 48 myself. Like my dad always said, it wasn't the hairs turning grey that bothered him, it was the ones turning loose.

Re: OT- I\'m old

OK... now I don't feel so bad. I think it was the bottle of Centrum Silver that Jeepchick bought me last night that sparked the thinking about aging. She did it as a joke (she's just a riot). [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] She will get her's though [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: OT- I\'m old

1. You're fast approaching what Joe Soucheray, of KSTP radio calls:
2. A GLA, or in layman's terms, A Great Living American...
3. Anyone who's lived to be over 55.
4. I was 42, and one of my younger daughters was 9,
5. I was a great dad, and got her a microscope for Christmas,
6. She promptly took some tweezers, and attacked me...
7. Pulling out a nose hair...
8. Declaring it grey [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]
9. And of course, sharing it with the whole 4th grade.
10. It's a wonder kids live to be adults! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: OT- I\'m old

I didn't feel old until my 3 year old grandson, who I was holding at the time, told my 84 year old mother-in-law in no uncertian terms; DONT HURT MY GRANDPA!

OK, memory test. What piece of equipment was on a fuel truck that isn't used any longer.

Re: OT- I\'m old

Just as I hit the "Continue" button, I realized I should have said LEVE is disqualified from the last time I asked that question.
