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

By
Real Estate Agent with Cindy Stys Equestrian and Country Properties, Ltd. 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.

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.
