    Every now and then while eating, you reach down to scoop up another spoonful or forkful of food and realize that your hand is empty, and the spoon/fork is still stuck in your mouth... Anyone else? Anyone? Ok, just me then... :D

    Found it. Some motherfucker took it out of my truck and used it for a sledgehammer. Sometimes a duck is a duck.

    My favorite line about getting older is still....

    Getting older is inevitable --- Growing up is optional... :cool:

    25 pages and 488 post. All becasue I was just resting my back while shopping with my wife. You know you are getting old when you have little of consequence to talk about.

    As a reasonable old codger, you just made me feel fairly young. Thank you very much Allyance. I should send you a geritol and peanut butter sandwich with a large iced cold prune juice smoothie some day soon, while we can still manage our walkers.

    Your tolerance for stuff that never bothered you in the past has you rolling your eyes and muttering at the screen. Or worse still saying it as it is.

    The usual reply being did you bother your arse to look before asking the question,that has been asked almost every day for the past decade. Ie oil, tyres , where can you buy this bit etc.

    You know you are getting old when you arrive at the elementary school with a couple un-baked pies and realize the grand children are in the oven.

    When you buy a scooter or begin riding your smaller, lighter bikes.

    You know you are getting old when you realize that you were once a really cool dude but now you get excited about shopping for a new vacuum cleaner.
