You Know You're Old When . . . . .

By
Real Estate Agent with Cindy Stys Equestrian and Country Properties, Ltd. PA License #RS297130

 

Just in case you weren't feeling too old today, this will certainly change things.

 

You know you're old when:

 

-  The people who are starting college this fall across the nation were born in 1990.

-  They are too young to remember the space shuttle blowing up.

-  Their lifetime has always included AIDS.

-  Bottle caps have always been screw off and plastic.

-  They have no idea what a record album is or a 45.

-  They have always had an answering machine.

-  They have always had cable.

-  They cannot fathom not having a remote control.

-  Jay Leno has always been on the Tonight Show.

-  Popcorn has always been cooked in the microwave.

-  They never took a swim and thought about Jaws.

-  They can't imagine what hard contact lenses are.

-  They don't know who Mork was or where he was from.

-  They never heard: "Where's the Beef?", "I'd walk a mile for a Camel", or "de plane Boss, de plane".

-  They do not care who shot J. R. and have no idea who J. R. even is.

-  McDonald's never came in Styrofoam containers.

-  They don't have a clue how to use a typewriter.

 

Do you feel old yet?

How about when there were only a handful of TV stations to watch instead of hundreds?

Hi Brigitia, I love your blog background.  I had a rescue standardbred named Mindy, when I was in the process of adopting a gelding I was going to call him Mork so I would have Mork and Mindy, my kids and some other people looked at me like WHAT!!!!.  It was too much to explain, named him Mooch instead.

I think that would have been neat.  My daughter had a dog at one time named Cagney and her sister was named Lacey.  Remember Cagney & Lacey?

My youngest is one of those that started college this fall ~ and yes, I feel old.  And, I STILL think about JAWS when I take a swim (I'll never get over that!)

How about three tv stations and a satellite dish was an appendage to the Apollo lunar module.  This is a fun list and reminds me to use the most of every day.  I may not have tomorrow!

Thanks for the reminder.

Edna:

41 isn't old.  (Only to a teenager, though.)  You're still young.  As I said before, you're as young as you feel.

As we age, yes we do feel it some.  That never stopped me.  OK, I don't do some things that I used to.  I'm a little more cautious now, but I still do many activities.

JAWS always comes to mind whenever I go to the shore.  I only go in the water to wet my feet.  LOL

Oh man Brigita I LOVE the new wallpaper--I wanna steal it!!

Yeah you made me feel old but as long as I can get my butt up on my horse (well it is a gaited horse--if I wanted to bounce I would buy a trampoline-that is showing my age) I am good to go!!

Riding and working with my horse is what is keeping me young.  I admit I need a mounting block to get on my horse (he's 16.2 HH), but I am still able to ride.  I will have horses until the day I die.
