    Just turned 50 in April.

    Age is a state of mind - since I ain't ever acted my age, not planning on it either...just a number.

    I rec'd my Curmudgeon status a long time ago. Just rec'd Reprobate - dunno what is next - going for it tho'.

    Life is cyclic - I graduated HS in '73, tie- dyed T shirts, flared jeans, clogs...

    Being an older returning College student- two classmates [ "you are older than my daddy" one reminded me...]

    "That is the coolest Tie-dye...where'd ya get it?"

    "It was my mom's...she graduated HS in '74"....

    You'd thunk she'd discovered Jimi Hendrix all by herself....toss a 8 track of Hendrrix to said cutie in tie dye, in a IT class, next class meeting...deer in the headlight look.

    It won't fit in a USB, a CD or Floppy drive either

    Talking

    When I was a kid we had to bang rocks together for long distance communication.

    We use to think fire was the greatest thing since… (sliced bread wasn’t invented yet).

    Every thing you wore was handed down from at least 3 other kids before you.

    Kids toys were hand made from wood, and lasted long enough to pass on the grandkids.

    Burning the midnight oil was really burning the oil.

    Kids were expected to work and help support the family, a 90 hour work week was considered an easy one.

    Kids begged to go to school to get out of the above.

    Kids carried all sorts of weapons to the above and the worst thing that happened was if caught the teacher kept them until the end of the day.

    and lastly

    Everything was uphill in the snow.

    ***My family could not afford the firestarter, you had to wrestle with him and win.

    ***Nobody gave up their clothes, Mom had to fashion them from tents
    Kids toys were hand made from wood, and lasted long enough to pass on the grandkids.
    ***We didn't have toys, they distracted from the workday
    Burning the midnight oil was really burning the oil.
    ***Oil was not available yet, the fish were to big to handle
    Kids were expected to work and help support the family, a 90 hour work week was considered an easy one.
    ***I did 80 hour weeks way into my 60's, not that bad
    Kids begged to go to school to get out of the above.
    ***I never begged for anything, I went without
    Kids carried all sorts of weapons to the above and the worst thing that happened was if caught the teacher kept them until the end of the day.
    ***They kept my pistol I carried to school in the 3rd grade.
    and lastly
    Everything was uphill in the snow.
    ***The problem with the snow and uphill was Mom had the only whip.
    I liked the list pretty much

    May the splinters never point the wrong way.

    Just turned 27. I thought I was young until I got married a little bit ago and became step-father for an 8 year old. I thought I could keep up but he tires me out. But.. it's worth it.
