I also forgot I was 50. Then I realized that I am 62. Of course that may still be a wippersnapper for some...

OK, but how is that even remotely relevant to this thread?

I believe AARP is related to being older. How are you even remotely relevant to this thread? Gee, John V mentioned joining AARP why didn't you scream at him too? Oh, that's right, you're a supporter of AARP. Now I understand.

You think?
John's post was more than a singular statement. He was describing a series of life events. Yours came across as a simple political statement. I blieve you have the right to that opinion, but most definetely wonder how it's relevant to the overall tone of the thread. And, BTW, screaming? Really?

I heard screaming in Indy. But that was just NY Giants fans at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Wait until you get to be my age, 71. I can't remember what I had for breakfast this morning, but I remember things that happened yesterday like they were fifty years ago! Wait, that doesn't look right. Uh, what was the question?
