I have no idea, but I wonder if forums will still be the preferred communication for the group in 14 years when I get to the right age to post in that thread...

Hah, stole my Depends topic Tom, but that was my guess for the 65+ers and why they wanted to keep it among themselves. Oh! And denture adhesives. Hemorrhoid creams are, of course, an open topic for all bicycle enthusiasts.

The youngin's

I guess I can lie about my age and post in this thread. After all, I'm still celebrating the anniversary of my 50th birthday and haven't actually reached 65 yet

Save your money on hemorrhoid creams. Get a recumbent instead.

Prostates. Or "prostrates" as they are frequently called.

Hemorrhoids. Recumbent.

I've been lurking. They set up a rules committee. And then went to bed. Tomorrow there's a workshop on how to use a tip calculator.

Let's tell 65+ jokes!

The Nursing Home

At the Nursing Home a man took his elderly father to a nursing home to check it out. He sat his father down on a sofa in the main aisle way and went to talk with the administrators.

The old man started to tilt slowly toward the left. A Doctor came by and said, "Let me help you." The Doctor piled several pillows on the left side of the old man so he would stay upright.

The older man started to tilt slowly to the right. An orderly noticed and put several more pillows on his right side to keep him upright.

The old man started to lean forward when a nurse came by and piled several pillows in front of him. About this time, the son returned.

"Well, Dad, isn't this a nice place."

The old man replied, "I guess it's ok, but they won't let me fart."
