1. Age is relative. I see so many people of ages many consider "old" who are nothing like these

stereotypes. While the list is clever & amusing in many ways, I'm going to strive to age like this new crop of relative "ageless..."

Still waiting for one of my friends at the VFW to approach with duct tape in hand to shut me up.

6. Old is....

Old is the next decade in age from where you are. I just turned 70. 80 is now old. 90 is ancient. Going the other way, 60s are middle age and 50s are young. Below that they are kids.

My late mother in law lived #6.

10. My personal favorite is #9

A friend of mine sent me a picture of an art show where many of my friends were attending. I haven't seen these people in 20 years as I moved to a different state. I wrote him back and said, "Who are all those old people?" And I meant it.

23. Odd how "senior humour" seems less funny as the years go by.

Nah...it's still funny.

25. Boy oh boy do those nail it. #5 strikes a real chord. Increasingly I get to the grocery store

and draw a complete blank. How many bags of shrimp can you fit in a small freezer? LOL.
