So, what's the appeal?

Maybe we should be the 45+ group?

(That was a joke - moderators, don't get all excited.)

Just break it up boys....I'm the self-appointed moderator here.....You, Dnvr, come with me--you've run over your quota of shennanigans.

***wonder if we could start a birthday swap thread....I'd be happy with anything in the 1950's. In return, you get the dignity of the 1940's from me. Takers?

Last time I, "tongue-in-cheek" suggested a 65+ forum, there were evidently big moderator discussions.

Believe me, if I was interested in another forum, that is NOT how I would go about it. I know my basics of community organization and advocacy. That isn't one of them.

Not as big as you think... seriously. If we took it just as seriously, we would have thrown it around for a bit. Don't stress.

Perhaps we could sell our "age" much like buildings in downtown can sell their air space or industries can buy and barter clean air vs pollution. 'Tis a thought!

I'll sell you two years of my age.

Then you will be 50 for BFN purposes, and I will only be 64.

If only they didn't prohibit buying and selling on the regular forums.

Contact me by PM and we will make a deal.

(How much do you suppose a year is worth?)

I'll pass thanks. I think I'll just put in my time in the other forums until I'm old enough for this one.

I'm aging fast enough as it is.

We all recognize that people "ripen" and mature at different rates and ages. I would think that anyone that feels and acts like they are mature enough are more than welcome to join in the 50+ discussions. We're only as old as we feel!!
