People have told me I look 68.

When I was 18, the age of the original poster, computers, forums and sites of any kind weren't even dreamed of. You made phone call on a dial phone, period. We had 3 channels on TV, NBC, CBS and ABC. and in black and white. Now I REALLY feel bad.

Come on guys, I think it's interesting to note everyone's age. It gives us a little knowledge about who we are. Helps us to understand the nature of their posts. I like knowing a little more about the people I interact with. Is there anyone older than 70?
Awe come n you look much younger when I almost saw you over Christmas.

Here's a story, when my middle son was 12, we were using the regular phone and he wanted to make a phone call. You know how 12 year olds are, they have to make IMPORTANT calls. I told him he could use the phone in the living room, it was rotary dial. He could not figure out how it worked!

I'm 39.99 + shipping and handling. Or it's in my profile.
