36 years when I turned 30, I remember thinking, "Wow....I'm old enough to be somebody's FATHER!"

When I was a kid I always thought someday I would know I am an adult...'all grown up'. Never thought about getting old, only about finally being all grown up....I am now 68, and still waiting to feel like all grown up!

I think my mind is actually getting younger now....I am learning how to play again! For sometime, I really just forgot how to play, my 6 Grandkids have helped me remember that skill...age is simply a state of mind! Even if the body fails, you can still be young of heart...

I think the classification in medical terms for older is 55 - 64? Being I am almost 59 I do not feel older than I was at 53? So, it may be m ore of the state of mind. But obviously, i am not what I was at 40. or even 30

Well, I remember once upon a time when I thought people my age were old - I don't think that anymore. So ... my Dad is 85 and doing quite well - you guessed it - 85 is old :-) I hope it I make it that long!

You will understand why many of us do not trust much of what the "medical" community tells us, when you actually get to 64!

I'm 50 and I think last month was the first time I fully realized that I do not get to escape death. I'm older but still a lot of young in me.
