    It is all your state of mind. I know guys in their 50's and early 60's who have decided that they are old men, and dress, walk and act like it. On the other hand, I know guys in their 70's and 80's who are still active and vibrant. So, who are the seniors?

    Being considered a "senior" is a constantly moving target. It's always at least 5 years older than I am. I'm currently 55 so a "senior" would be considered to be at least 60. In August, it becomes 61.....

    Bits of me are senior already, I hit 40 this year and my back, knees and parts of my head are well into their sixties.
    They say that when you hit 40 you realize that this body has to last your whole life, it's true... I've abused it all my life so far, working too hard, falling off bikes, generally treating it like it was invincible. Now it aches and is getting to be a liability.

    I am not looking forward to saving a few dollars on a sandwich if it means I have to go get it in a wheelchair, so from now on I am watching out for my health more.

    I did that one, I was 25 from age 15 to my early 30's. Then the portrait in the attic fell off the wall needing repair.

    Being a senior comes at 500 posts doesn't it?

    Well, let's see ... Average life expectancy is ~75yrs. Half that is ~38yrs. So, anyone 39 and over is in the senior half. 40yrs is fleetingly senior. 50yrs is marginally senior. 60yrs is mostly senior. 70yrs, undeniably senior. 80yrs, senior-a-go-go. They say that the memory starts fading by 40, with various "urges" sometime thereafter. Though, by 60 you're starting to have other "urges" ... more-frequent ones, by all accounts, though that's spotty. Hm. Hm.
