    Age range check - lot's of new folks, however, some of us getting older so???

    Since the 50+ forum started several years back, those who have stuck around have, obviously, gotten older. BUT, we have a lot of new folks of all ages and many have dropped out. It seems to me the age range has expanded - more older folks?? Anyway, let's find out. If interested, please respond by checking your age range as of December 9, 2012.

    (correction to the poll - Make that 85+)

    You beat me to the posting of the poll!! I entered as fast as I could, but the software requires posting the thread OP first before posting the poll.

    One-fingered typing, and have to remember to press the enter key! Each time. That's a lot of processing.

    Just had a birthday in the last two months so between this poll and Medicare I got a splash of cold water about age.

    No, I used it and found some of my age ranges were spelled incorrectly.

    Wasn't it bad enough that we had to admit to being over 50 when we joined this forum? Now you're asking us to be somewhat specific?!?!

    According to SWMBO, I'm about 13 but I usually lie about my age and get away with claiming my mid 50's
    I had a good bike ... so I FIXED it
