    Mailman gave me the idea for this thread question, and his answer seems to be,

    > When you're playing shuffleboard and talking about your orthopedic shoes.

    I'll add,

    > when people say to you, "My Grandpa had one of those ! "

    How about you; how will you know when you've become an Old Fart?

    You know you're getting old when:
    Boy Scouts start asking if they can walk you across the street.

    You haven't taken the XS650 out for a ride in over a week.

    The wife asks, "So what are you doing today".
    I say, "Nothing"
    She says, "You did that yesterday"
    I say, "Yeah, but I haven't finished!" :laugh2:

    You turn on the MTV Music Awards, and the only artists that you even recognize are the ones getting a Posthumous Award.

    When I was working for the city of Austin I was offered the opportunity to drive celebrities to and from SXSW but after seeing the billing I'd never heard of them and and also thought they probably suck, so wasn't interested.

    "The Price Is Right & Wheel of Fortune" are the only 2 TV shows you watch and you complain about the neighbor kids dirt bike being too loud.

    Getting that "Senior Coffee" price of 99 cents at McDonald's without asking always kills me, then to add insult to injury a young lady holds the door open for me on the way out. :doh:

    When you say things like....

    I remember when you could get a cup of coffee for 10 cents!

    You call this music? I hate that rap crap!

    These kids today, they don't know what hard work is!

    Also, you can't get out of your chair without groaning.

    You remember when Bridget Bardot, Julie Newmar, and Ursala Andress were all hot chicks!
