    Bring on the observations and punch lines......

    You might be in your 50's if....

    ......you celebrate the life, and still mourn the passing of Ronald Wilson Reagan.

    You might be in your 50's....if you have ever dialed a phone, and at one time thought a fax was high tech.

    You might be in your 50's…. If you are considering replacing your reading glasses with real glasses.

    That cop who just let you off with a warning and a lecture about safety and responsibility on the road, instead of a speeding ticket...
    ...looks to be the same age as the twit that just took your youngest daughter to
    the Prom!:confused:

    As a kid rode your bike thru town with your .22 on the handlebars and nobody cared.

    The bike you rode with your 22 on the handlebars had a sissy bar and a banana seat

    Hell we had a rotary phone and a party line we shared with a couple neighbors. I'm only 36 but grew up in BFE. One channel on the TV and I remember the first time my parents brought home a color TV and I watched the Flintstones on it. And yes from the age of 10 on, .22 was my constant companion.


    I was probably one of the last ones to grow up like that.

    Every backyard in the neighborhood was part of your playground.
    Played "Kick the can" and "First bounce or fly"
    Played outside till midnight and no one worried.
    Only came in Sunday evenings to watch "Wide World of Disney"

    I'm only 34 and I remember all this.
    Man, I'm finally at that age that I started saying, back whem I was a kid.

    My wife had our 2nd child the other day and we were in the hospital room when someone called on the "old school" land line phone. When my wife hung up my 3year old daughter was so confused. Asked what the phone was.
    I guess she only thinks iphones are phones.
