How old are you, DUers? (poll) Please vote! lol [View all]

Last edited Sat Mar 5, 2022, 04:58 AM - Edit history (1)

I was driven to create this poll by the seeming absence of DUers in the late-night hours, so I have my suspicion as to how it will turn out... hell, I would not be awake myself at this time, and lately am not-- except I woke up so early yesterday (5 am) that I fell asleep in the early evening for 5-6 hours, and am thus now awake in the middle of the night... lol

Love you all!

Edit: sorry, I forgot, I am 59 years old... but looking good for my age-- genes from my father. lol
