    Wait until your medicare card arrives in the mail it's like you know what's in the envelope and when you open it I felt older than an antique even tho I don't feel my age some days and then their are the other days. Stay 39 forever if I knew then what I know now wow.

    * * * The bright side is * * * you should now start asking for senior citizen discounts - there are so many diifferent age qualifications for this depending on where you shop - age does have its advantages!

    In Oklahoma you can get a license plate for your car that says "Antique" if it's 25 years old. Boy I'm really old, but I'm still running on all 8 cylinders.

    I went to the Dallas quilt show recently and didn't realize until later when I was sorting my purse that I had been charged the senior rate, although I am 2 years too young for the posted cut-off. I didn't notice at the time because I didn't remember what the ticket price was supposed to be (a senior moment, no doubt). I don't know if I'm happy to have saved that dollar.

    When I go to "antique" stores, almost everything seems like a flash-back to my youth. Sigh. I tell myself that there just aren't a lot of real antiques in Texas because almost nobody lived here before air conditioning. Seriously, to be an antique, doesn't it have to be at least a hundred years old, unless it's a car? "Vintage" just means "old enough that most have been pitched".

    Age is only a number for some. Attitude and a little white lie are much better. I refuse to get older (dreadful word).
    As I have every intention of staying here until my number say 90 I have to keep a young attitude.
    Antique and vintage are not the same thing. One would hope to be worth quite a bit by the time we reach antique status.

    I've noticed a whole lot of ebay sellers don't really have a clue what they're talking about.
    Hey at least we can say we are collectibles. :)

    The worst moment for me was having the music on as I sew, and having my DD ask "Why are you listening to that 'old' music"? Aerosmith and Queen are old????? I think I need a nap. :oops:

    You mean toys that don't make all kinds of noise. Real toys. Not electronics :?
