How old am I?





Guess how old I am (if you already know, please don't post), then post your own pic and we will guess how old you are. After 6 people guess your age, you can reveal how old you are.

I have a theory I'm trying to investigate.

I'll guess a young-looking 66, Doohickey. What does it say on the helmet?

Yes... I can't remember the exact age, but I do remember you having a big yap, so I will refrain from guessing.

Okay, no one else wants to guess, so I guess the prize goes to cehowardGS. He guessed I was 37; he was only off by 11 years. robtown and TromboneAl were off by 14 and 18 years respectively. For those of you bad at math... I'm 48. (I shouldn't even be posting here.)

I guess you could say the years have not been kind to me!

Two points!!

First, you are correct, at 48, you shouldn't be here..Come back in a couple years!!

Second, you are wrong that the years have not been good to you. You are here, you are riding bikes, sheesh, I would say the years have been GREAT to you. Lot of peeps are not here/around, and a lot of them ain't riding bikes.

Now, beat it youngster, come back when you are old enough!!

How old am I? As old as my tongue and a little older than my teeth. A cute little saying I was taught as a kid.

Hey Doohickie - nice to see what you look like and personally if you hadn't said I would have guessed early 40's...
