Didn't feel old to me until last August. That's when everything went to hell in a handbasket, first time in my life I felt old.

A elderly couple were on the couch contemplating their youth.
Wife says "Remember when your mum would give you a dollar to go for groceries and you'd come back with 6 eggs, a loaf of bread and a bag of potatoes...you cannot do that these days!"
Husband says "Damn right...too many security cameras!"

50?!! That's hardly senior. I think it at least needs a 6 in front of it.

As you get older it's how the herd thins out that brings it home. Almost all the people in my stories are dead. I don't imagine it gets any better as I go on.
Mind you, my friends haven't all been among the most insurable, but still.....

No. It thins out everywhere else and sprouts on the chin.

While we're being gross I'll throw in skin tags.
