    Can I still hang here?

    Or do I have to take my act on the road to the 60+ forum now?

    Someone want to point the way? I can't seem to find it. Maybe it's time for stronger reading glasses.

    Welcome to the club. Everything that you realized was happening to you in your '50s shouldn't shock you anymore.

    From the title, "Can I Still Hang Here?", I thought you'd found a way to get your age back below 50.

    Well, I hope they don't kick you out at 60. If that were the case, I'd have to start looking around in a little over 2 months.

    This is your way of fishing for birthday greetings, isn't it?

    Easy, when I hit 50, I started counting backwards. I hope to see zero.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    You don't need to have your eyes tested. There is no 60+ forum -- but the is a 60s forum.
