I'm old...

I'm old and starting to smell funny. Kinda like talcum powder. I'm grumpy and prefer doing things my way. I can be taught, but grudgingly. I've lost most of my hair, and what remains is gray. I now carry a spare tire with me wherever I go. My knees hurt constantly.

Can you relate?

Isn't the line, eat more possum, less coon?

It's off to the 50+ forum for you, Juggler2.

Do you have a bike?

Holy crap Juggler2. You sound like those folks in the 50+ forum. Welcome to BF.

I'm 62 and still a youngster.

Don't we know that signature from somewhere? Is today April 1, or December 24?

Scurries off to find suspect...

I wouldn't know, I retired at 47. I wouldn't recommend anyone follow my example though.

I have a Schwinn Continental, that I purchased at a LBS several years ago. However I prefer to ride a '68 Schwinn Typhoon cruiser I reconditioned.

My goal is to ride across lower Michigan next year. From the west side of the state to the east side. That may seem pretty modest to most of you, it seems almost herculean to me as I plan on it.

Well, I'm off to the 50+ forum... I wanna get there early and get a good seat!
