The good news is you can do whatever the hell you want. You're too old to die young and too young to be old. Have fun!

Why was this moved when it is obvious that the guy was saying three more days until he turns 50 years of age and becomes an "official" member of the 50+ forum/board?

A guest appearance only.

No, those are NOT the rules.

Some moderator is going a bit crazy this am!

I wrote a moderator and also "reported" this post as to why it was moved. Please feel free to do the same.

Okay, I am "light." Sorry I didn't recognize your humor. I am a bit "humor impaired."

Still want the post moved back, though.

'Sokay, I forgot to add the laugh track Have you always been that way or has this curmodgeonly trait been slowly aquired with through the years? Maybe you should consided exploring the possibility of a humor transfusion.
