How Young are you?

Ok, what is your age. Your physical age!

Well, let's see. By the calendar I'm in the 56 to 65 age group. I feel like the 38 to 45 bunch and act more like the 29 to 37 folks. I've learned that there's no profit in growing up. I can't help growing older, but I can control my attitude. Smile on!

I hate even thinking about my age!!! I am in my late 30s (OK very very late, I am clinging to them for a couple more months!) I am sure I am really only about 29 though.

I'm in the 46-55 yo group. I have an extra year in my life because I thought I was 53 last year but I wasn't....I turned 53 this year!

Right, Half Baked. My mother-in-law was 53 for at least 3 years in a row.

Just kidding you...but MIL #2 really did do that. I teased her about it, but she never did back down.

I'm going to have my 60th birthday in February. I don't know where the time went. I remember thinking as a child, that if I lived to see the year 2000, I'd be really old.

I've always thought young and looked young (except as a teenager, when I wanted to look older), but have also always had friends in all age groups, including older people.

I still have friends of all ages, but now I'm in the older group, and it's pretty cool.
*For one thing, I'm no longer weird...I'm eccentric.
*I can call young handsome men "honey" and get away with it.
*I often get hugs & kisses from those young men (it's OK to hug grandma).
*I have a cleaning lady and a yard man.
*We raised our kids, and then a grandson, and they are finally all gone from home.
*Kim is going to retire at the first of the year.

Those are some of the perks of getting older. Of course, the biggest perk is that getting older sure beats the alternative!

We get by with a little help from our friends

I'm the same age as my little finger, and a little older than my teeth.

Well past my first blush.

I'll be 22 1/2 next birthday.

I'm old enough to know best.

(These were the same answers my mother always gave when asked how old she was. I'm following her example.)
