Nearly every bike ride I take ends with the same slog up a noticeably steep hill. I have been climbing this hill fairly regularly for the past twenty-five years, riding essentially the same bike. I can see that I am using a lower gear and getting slower. But i am still climbing the hill!

You know you are getting old when the senior discount is given automatically.....

LOL

Reminds me of an e-mail I received a few years ago, ( How do you know you became old) and it had about 20 points . Some made me laugh, and some made me wonder if someone was watching me that close !!! LOL .

Many of those points did fit local customes. One of them said ( you know you became old ... when you notice more young people calling you "uncle" ) and I noticed the young mechanic calling me "uncle" and the young engineer who supervised my house construction , also called me "uncle".

That's a definite sign ... LOL

Seriously Picard? I really hope your New Year's resolution is to stop trolling the forums here...

Why worry about something not in your control. We all age because we don't control time. We can mitigate aging by eating right, drinking less alcohol, working out and just doing good things for body and brain, but we can't stop it so worrying about it seems totally wasted energy. A guy I work out with is in his 80's. He's in the gym for 2-3 hours 5 days a week. He's in good shape (I will not qualify that by saying "for his age"); he looks his age but doesn't dwell on it. Personally I think worrying about it will make you age faster.

As for the comments by Teslinhiker, I agree. This isn't a whiner forum. You're worried about age spots? Really? frown That is so petty and narcissistic. If I had a trophy wife she could worry about age spots. I wear my age spots with pride.

Hey, relax, everyone. This whole thread is a little self-parodic, and it makes no sense to pick a fight. Worried about getting old? really? Even before Picard's post, there were already some posts that elicited a smile (from my face, anyway). 63 but looking 66? If you want to be self-righteous, you're at the wrong place.
