    without giving it out, is there anyone on this forum who is embarrassed by his or her age? embarrassed enough to not want the rest of us to know?

    Not me. What's to be embarrased about? It's a fact and it doesn't make a bit of difference to me. I am what I am!

    wvdek - Right there with you! Mine happens in April how about yours?

    Never ashamed of my age, I am as old as I am...some days I feel everyone of my years and then some, others I feel very young in spirit!

    why do you ask? ...and no, age is one of those irrefutable facts of life. I'd rather be whatever age I am than entertaining the alternative.

    let me rephrase the question: is there anyone here who is willing to announce hers or his age out loud? i'm not embarrassed to begin. 66 years old and loving every minute.

    It ain't the years that are important, it's the mileage.

    Oh well I might as well tell the world, 61, everyone at work knows and it's the head and the heart that will always be young...age only counts when I hurt.

    I will be 34 in May! I have enjoyed my 30's more than my 20's

    I'm 57. I told my sister today when I called her for her BD, "I'm still 5 years younger than you.":lol:
    OBTW when our younger sis turned 50 she sent sympathy cards to us as our baby sister was now a half century old and the rest of us even older.
    Having a sense of humor keeps us all young :thumbup:

    I was 75 last August and didn't start making quilts until 3 years ago from last September... loving it... mainly community quilts. You are never too old to learn anything at all...

    Yipee. I'm 57 too and I love it. I've earned every gray hair and all my aches and pains and life is still wonderful. I have great kids and a wonderful DGD. Life is good.

    I will be 52 January 10th and very grateful to still be breathing and creating. I wouldn't trade anything for my life or my gray hair, I've earned and learned with every day.

    48 and worked darned hard for it. THAT SAID, I went to the thrift store three days ago. I picked up two little books $1.00.. the woman said oh today is Senior day so you save... I was speechless.. I don't hesitate to say I am as old as dirt but when you look oh 20 yrs older than you are.. sigh.. to come home relate the tale to my dear one who laughed went out and got the mail. Tossed it on the table and waited. A letter from AARP for me. So no I dont mind my age, it doesnt mind me. I do and would rather live and EARN each additional year vs be gifted it in doses!

    62 and loving retirement. I'm a red head, no gray hair, except a few that peek out between dye jobs.

    I am more than happy to say my age 47 in April. I am lucky to have survived a massive heart attack at 36 years old. My children were only 7 and 7 months old. I am just grateful and blessed to be able to grow old with my husband and two children.
    Cheers Jakcie.

    I just turned 55 in Nov., sometimes I feel very old and then other days I feel like a teenager.

    I have learned a lot throughout these past years, wouldn't change that if I could.
