    Like THAT will last.... I just thought I'd give the ol' pendulum a push in a positive direction before all heck broke loose.

    1) I like my Scott Cheyenne better than my Atlantis.

    2) Horseback riding hurts worse than bike riding.

    3) Possums are the ugliest roadkill.

    They make up for it by being so tasty.

    I tossed and turned all night worrying about this whole divisive age thing going on here.

    Over the last 2 days I've ridden 62 miles and wondered if that would qualify me for an "I've almost ridden their age in two days." post. It was such a relief to awake to the this Young'ns Thread.

    "Young at heart" is a loathsome expression. It invariably translates into "old coot".

    I'll have none of it.

    My obsessive summertime fear is that a ripe, swollen, several-days-dead raccoon will be run over by a car and that I, riding along in proximity to the car and raccoon (minding my own business) , will be sprayed with hot roadkill juices!

    Yes. And if you think they are ugly when they are dead in the road...

    Usually when they are racing an armadillo from the road side to underneath a car or truck tire to see which one can get a tire track over them first.

    Can't we all just get along? I'm gong over to the 55 1/2 forum. Maybe I'll find I have something in common with those good folks.
    Never trust anyone over 56!!
    And you know that notion just crossed my mind.

    Just what I keep saying- Youngsters have no respect for their elders.

    Now go to your room and read your comics---and NO supper.
