At least one <50 knows an awful lot about Medicare. Let me know if you have questions.

Also been through the PCa thing, the heart surgery thing.... *yaaaaawwwwn*

And I wouldn't mind hangin' out with the 70+'ers. That's who I'm more in tune with. Maybe I could be a mascot 'til I can prove that my mindset belongs with an earlier generation.

Since you mentioned it. I turn 65 in Sept. and am getting swamped daily with adverts. and some serious stuff from my (now) primary insurance company, and govt. stuff wanting a decision. It's over my head. This kind of thinking just ain't my bag. I'm surprised I got this far in life with minimum screw-ups.

Absolutely not!
What could a 65 year old possibly have to say that could be of any interest?
I'll stick to the children in the 50+.
Were such........children.
