DU age poll

It's been a while since I have seen a poll on how old DUers are. How old are you? I am 41 but it sure doesn't seem that way! How time flies.

At least I look young for 41. Probably 25-30 depending how much my bald spot is showing.

I had a big one at 70, so I'm not looking for another one just yet. Maybe at 80. YIKES!

remember: With age comes wisdom!
As long as I don't have to look my age, I'm good. However, I still hope I die before I get old.

Two things I'm not likely to give up easily: weight....and age.

Dream on!

69 until August. I’ve always loved whatever my age has been. I plan for my 70s to be great now that I retired!

my husband and I just said this morning.....we think we've got it pretty good compared to some others we know. But I do love that saying, "getting old isn't for sissies".

I know (I'm 37) that I've seen several posts that scream GET OFF MY LAWN and bash people for doing things like using smartphones instead of landlines.

There was also another that screamed age discrimination at a group who's main goal is to build a bench of young Democratic elected officials.

If you (generic) want younger people here, you need to be careful about posts that would turn them off.

I wish we had more, but I think we lost some during the primaries due to a candidate I won't name. That person turned them further against the party and organized politics.
