Mine too! Have for 20 some years! Think it has more to do with the jumping off the roof of the garage repeatedly than old age though... (It was a great hiding spot for hide and seek!)

I'm so old I remember the game "Annie, Annie...over!" You would both get on different sides of the house and try to hit a tennis ball over the roof. You would yell out that line when you were ready to hit the ball so the other person knew it was coming.

i remember my dad bringing home nixon's resignation speech on 5 level teletype tape (hole punch tape). he was a teletype op for the associated press at the time. he thought it would be worth something someday. unfortunately, you need a tape reader, and the last one that i saw, i was prepping it for display in the smithsonian. i guess back then he didn't foresee the speed of electronic progress.
