This will make you feel old...
On January 1st, 2022, less than five years from now, anyone who wasn't born this century will be legally allowed to drink in the US. Sad

When I was a kid it was 16.
Then they made it 18.
Then they made it 21.

Clearly I am old.

That doesn't make me feel old.

The other day I realized I have been living in this falling down tinderbox I call a house for over 30 years.


That sorta made " old" a bit more meaningful.....

I started feeling old when I noticed that most professional athletes were younger than I was -- and that was over 30 years ago.

More recently, every day our newspaper lists celebrity birthdays. Most of the ones under 50 years old are people I've never heard of. I only know the older ones.

Fucking A!
I have had to virtually rebuild my entire front porch to keep the code Nazi's off my back. I'm no spring chicken and doing construction work takes a toll.
I haven't walked without a limp in a month.
And yeah I know I'm old when I look at the tabloids in the Supermarket line and I don't know most of the "celebs" that are gossipable.
One upside. My music has become very affordable.
The bargain bin at FYE is just full of great stuff.

Drinking age when I was young was 21. I had my first real drink at 18. TAKE THAT SOCIETY!

Oh, I have all kinds of ways to feel old. I recently realized that there's a whole generation of military retirees I never met because they were still in High School when I retired from the military. That's a bit unsettling. Shocking

If I had stayed in, I would be getting my 10th sleeve stipe in 14 months...
