So, I was leaving the eye doctor's office when a young man coming the other way did a u-turn and walked back to the door of the office so he could hold it open for me.


I think I may be old...

Happened to me last year.

Of course I accepted it.

In Oregon a couple years ago... by ana (4.00 / 1) #4 Tue Apr 09, 2019 at 08:21:47 AM EST
I was vacationing, surrounding a nephew's wedding, waiting for my sister to clear out inlaws who had come for the festivities. I went to a National Park Service facility, and was just old enough at 62 to qualify for a lifetime pass to the national park system for the princely sum of $10. Then I went down the road to a desert museum, privately owned, who enquired if I was old enough for their senior discount (65). So only partly old.

I shall qualify for that come June.

Talking with the team for one of the projects I mentioned that I will be 54 next month. Assistant team lead, a very smart cute and perky girl said, very perkily, "My Dad's 54!"

So, kind of her way of telling you to take a step back, you Biden wannabe!
