What makes YOU feel over the hill?

You know you are "old" when......

Your favorite songs and t.v. shows are now called "classic" or "retro".

The "younger" fashions look ridiculous when you wear them and they make you feel ridiculous.

The vitamin supplements you take are for 50+.

You drink less alcohol and the alcohol you do purchase is higher priced and higher quality-sipping and enjoying a good cocktail or vintage is more important than getting wasted.

You have confidence in yourself and your decisions so you don't care what others think about you-I no longer have my nails manicured and polished. They are nice, clean, trimmed and healthy but are not at an unreasonable length like claws and they are not fussy with colors and decals and decorations.

When out on the town on a Saturday night, you wear outfits that are classy and sensual; not trashy and sexy.

Your style is dictated by your heart and your essence, not by fashion and trends-I wear white after Labor Day and I decorate my living space with a retro pink flamingo mirror and a retro pink flamingo porcelain figurine I bought at an antique store and with some original works of art from local artists who I have met.

That's about all from me! lil mikie

About six years ago, while wearing a bomber-style leather jacket and carrying a book about, I think, the Luftwaffe, I stopped in at a drugstore to pick up a prescription. The Arab pharmacist said to me, "Excuse me, sir, but I'm curious....did you serve in the Second World War?". I arrived home in some anxiety, which my wife dispelled by saying "Relax, who knows how much history they teach where he's from? He may think the war took place in the 1980's". Which was probably the correct explanation, but I took a searching look at myself in the mirror all the same.

I took advantage of the 55+ menu at Oerkins last week while out with my son. The receipt clearly said (SR).

You know you're old when your Pastor refers to as an, "Old Broad". Yep, true story.
To put this in perspective....he turned 60 in February and I will be 60 next week, so my reply to him is, "I'll always be younger than you are, you old fart"! laughing laughing

When I see parents in church whose children are receiving their 1st holy communion and I remembered when they received theirs. Watching adults in church and seeing them with their children, makes me realize that they are the younger generation and I am not LOL

When a teen in the neighborhood asks you if he may carry your groceries for you. It's good he can't read minds.

Or, how about this, when your one grandbaby runs you ragged in a single day and you try and try to figure out how you could manage four under the age of five every day all day when you were just a mom . . . lol. . .

I hear you, Lauren!

We had a standing joke in our house when talking about someone who acted mature, we'd say, "like Victor." No one has a clue what I mean anymore.
