The age range is about what I expected. Thanks to all who posted and stay tuned for the final count and amount. I'll start a new thread for it. Merry Christmas to all of you wonderful ladies & gentlemen!
    There was a tally about four pages ago and she's still keeping track. :-)

(amazement in his voice) You look healthy even (shocked tone)Wow - how old are you anyway? (Sigh)

    Wonder how old I looked to him when he was 10? I was younger than he is now at the time.

    I've taught in the same small town for 25 of the 32 years I've been teaching. It has become very common to walk into that same grocery store and have some child say, "Mom! That's my music teacher!" Only to have the mom say, "I know, Honey - that was MY music teacher, too." When I start teaching the grandchildren - I'm retiring!
    How wonderful for the children in the town to have such continuity in the school! We recently had a teacher retire - after her last grandchild was through her HS English class! How much the school has lost!

    Well, I will admit to late 50's, but my mom says that after 50 we get younger every year, rather than age! I'd rather do that. :lol: :lol:
