    Eight days and counting till I am legal.

    Yep, only eight more days of 49, and then you all are in trouble.

    I am wondering if there is anything I need to start prepping for to prepare for the big 5-0. Most of my hair is still with me and almost everything still works. Should I get in a box in case things start falling off?

    Definitely, in eight days your hair will fall out and more things will begin to hurt. Hey, you've been posting illegally all this time. Shame on you youngster.

    49'ers are coming out of the woodwork. Unixpro, now crtreedude. And that chip guy, let's just call him cowchip, was saying something about 9/11 & 50.

    Welcome crtreedude to the club. Hope you have some liniment, you're going need it.

    Your going to need a bigger mailbox. The AARP will be adding to your collection of mail. The days of just credit card offers will be over.

    Do you have any unique flavors of pie in Costa Rica that you could offer up as part of your induction?

    Keeping ones hair is easily done. All that it takes is a simple operation to eliminate the organs which produce the male hormones. There are few side effects. For instance, your beard will stop growing. Some guys miss shaving so they do their legs.

    Every time that I see a man in our age group with a full head of hair, I wonder. If he shaves his legs, I KNOW.

    Uh - I just noticed how much hair cowchip's avitar has.

    If only I could get my beard and leg hair that same platinum color, I'd be golden...err platinum.

    One of the true tragedies of living here is they don't know what pie even is, except that which is left by cows, of course...

    And you all thought I lived in paradise, didcha?

    You figured anyone who could be as grouchy as I can in P & R must be an old geezer...

    I would say I am as young as I look, but with hair nearly white, I might have to join the 70+ group... at it isn't because I am a blonde, either.

    In a battle of wits you're going to need a 2 to 1 numerical advantage. Isn't Zorro the kind of guy who brings a knife to a gunfight?

    That's what they all say, until that battalion of AARP paratroopers drops in for lunch.

    Wrong again. I'm just a twin and my brother's name is Quick.

    As for diaper wearing, you're the baby of this bunch?
