    Nope, bad idea....too much work while I'm "young," I'll build up to it!
    Let's start with the teens and 90's. Anyone that young or old?

    By the way, I got a phone call from a stranger today who wanted info on a Bernese Mountain Dog they rescued. I don't know why, but he said... "I assume you're in the 50+ group? We have an internet forum just for people in the 50+ group, if you want to join." I was actually startled for a moment, expecting that one of you had played a joke on me! But I guess not!

    OK, anyone in their 90's or teens can pop in later.

    Let's continue on! Anyone in their 20's or 80's read the forum?

    Sorry, I'm 105 and can't take the chance by delaying posting. Tried to ride my age last Saturday but only managed a Century.

    Same here, fthomas! Mrs. Road Fan would say I'm approaching 20 backwards. But how'd this 34 years backwards go so fast?

    I am as old as life on the Earth, for as it is stated on Wikipedia:

    Tom Bombadil's origins in the cosmology of Middle-earth were left vague by Tolkien. He calls himself the "Oldest" and the "Master". He claims to remember "the first raindrop and the first acorn"

    Unfortunately what I cannot remember is where I put last night's mail.

    It's a lifestyle quiz. If you smoke and have unprotected sex it will tell you that you already died.

    I'm in the middle with 56 years behind me...when I worked in the mission in Venezuela there was a saying: Let's move forward, behind us is too scary.
    Be patient all, the young ones will be posting soon, that is my prediction.
