Should I post here?
 
Hi folks. at 49 years of age, (just turned) I don't quite make the cut for posting here. But, I'm looking for a place with a more appropriate demographic.

So, Should I post here? :o

Yes, but there is a "per post" fee which should be sent directly to me.

The fee per each post is 1 cent per year for the difference in our ages until you reach 50.

That means 17 cents per post, please!

I take credit cards.

- ha! lived in Braintree 20 years ago and commuted into South Station every day (worked across the street from Hook Lobster at the Club Fed bldg.).,..

- post away, but you may get your ear bent...

:-)

I think we've found that you are more than welcome to post if you have the "outlook and perspective" of the 50+ crowd around here. Please note that there are numerous & varied opinions and ideas but we all seem to be able to express ourselves without offending each other. But I guess it always helps to send Dnvr the posting fee to help pay for his spinning classes.....

Sure you're 49! I've been saying that for 10 years... OHB

Welcome Trackhub

Now why would you want to join up with a bunch of over-the-hill, washed up, has-beens? We don't actually do any riding, but we make up great stories....

Well, aren't they made up? They're too good to be true (according to pre-50ers).

Have fun -- and tell us about it!

You are more than welcome to post here. Send Denver the 17 cents per post. Please send me 1 Coors lite per post & we will call it even. Bob

Boy, at 49, it would be an extreme compliment to be carded. Wish someone would card me.

By the way, I don't mean AARP carded when I ask for a senior discount at Dennys.

We like younger women, although sometimes we forget why. :eek:

GrannyGear 02-04-06 01:04 AM

Drink a large bottle of Geritol without taking a breath. Try unsuccessfully to find your bellybutton. Fail to notice Tyra Banks is sitting next to you. And, finally, perhaps most importantly, forget why you walked across the house.

If successful at the above....you're very welcome. BTW, what was your post?

bentrox! 02-04-06 01:22 AM

You're asking us? Hell, just do it - think of it as pre-season posting if that helps.

Trackhub,

I've been posting for nearly 6 months and they haven't kicked me off yet even though I have two years to go and I haven't sent DnvrFox 18-19 cents each time. ;) Possibly they are affraid to mess with a "man of the cloth" or they don't know what to do with me because I ride these old Schwinn 10 speeds and a Cannondale Comfort Bike. I think they are worried that if they say the wrong thing that I possibly have power like Elijah over the prophets of Baal in 1 Kings 18:40. :eek: Actually, you will find the nicest set of posters and responders you could ever hope to find anywhere on the WWW.

While I'm not "official" I'll let you post as long as you promise to tell all your neighbors to drive safely around every cyclist they encounter when they come north to vacation in NH. :D

Have you balanced your checkbook lately?

126 posts x's $.18 = $22.68 - the amount your checking account should be out of balance (I gave you just a bit of a discount, not charging $.19)

It is amazing the financial things you can do on the internet.

pastorbobnlnh 02-04-06 08:55 AM

DnvrFox,

Do you accept PayPal?

Bob

If it will make you feel better, you can borrow a couple of my years. I've got some "extras".

Welcome Trackhub! What brand/model bicycles and riding type/styles do you enjoy?

In Korea they celebrate a persons first birthday when they turn three months old, because that's one year from conception, so as long as you're at least 49 years and 3 months then you're old enough.

Irma's is not closed, Skipper, the weather, and I have just not been very successful in co-ordinating our plans. It hardly seems fair to drive to Irma's to eat pie. It must be earned! However, I'm awaiting a phone call from Skip.. I'' try to talk us into a ride one way or the other.
Welcomes to Trackhub!

Yikes, that means I'll have to ride my bike all the way from Northern California just to try Irma's famous pie!!! :D

trackhub 02-04-06 02:42 PM

I feel right at home already! :D

Now that is not going to happen. If Trya were anywhere near me, I'd notice.

As for the requested fees, I've got them, but payment will be made in Turkish Lira, indian rupees, or Swiss Francs.
