Hello, this is my 1st post, though I've been lurking here for years. I'm more of a reader than a poster, but I thought I'd start with this one...

You know you are old, when you built a model airplane with a battery-powered motor that you would hang from your bedroom ceiling with fishing line. You could watch for an hour as it did nothing but fly in circles on that line.

You know you're old, when you cherished the Sears Wishbook. Out of that Wishbook you bought a assemble-yourself mini-bike that was powered by an old lawnmower Briggs and Stratton engine.

You know you're old, when you're 'tablet' was a Big Chief notebook of ruled-paper. AND it was not NOT considered racist.

Welcome.

Old is considered a four letter word around here.

Like Toned or Diet.

Oh by the way, I'm neither toned or dieted(sp). I'm fatty with fatceps.

Yep. I can go to sleep at 10:30, wake up at 4:30, walk the mall at 7:00, watch Wheel of Fortune at 4:30 and call it a day.


Just kidding.

Umm...what? Are you drunk? BTW, this was a comedy post. Just trying to say "Hello" in an different way. Rather than saying "I can't lose my gut" or " Can I build muscle after 40?"

Monday, March 30, 1981. I was sitting outside the Vice Principles office, as usual, and news came over the radio that Reagan was shot. I forgot what I did but it was my 7th offense of the year (that I got caught at least) and was due for 16 swats. It was a new school record!!! Not bad for a 4th grader. Those were the days.

Realized that I was old today (or perhaps just my eyes). Got ready to do my Incline DB Flies this afternoon and couldn't figure out what was wrong with my right arm until I looked up and realized that I had a 55 in my right hand and a 42.5 in my left.
