When I turned 55, I discovered that I could get the senior rate at the golf course. It was a pretty good discount too, but I always had to ask for it.

This morning, the guy behind the counter looked at me and asked, "Senior?"

So, in addition to feeling my age now, I guess I look it as well.

Seems like last week I was getting asked for I.D. by the bartenders.

Love, a 53 year-old guy.

It gets easier with practice.
Now repeat after me:

"Yes I'm a Senior. Now Gimme my damn discount!"

See?
Easy Peasy.

One of my fishing buddy's called me last week and asked me if I wanted to fish the Senior Trail Bass Tournament Trail up in Orlando next year.

I laughed at him saying sure why not, then I realized he was serious.

Then he explained the minimum age requirement is 3 years younger then myself.

Then I tried jumping in front of a north bound train.

For me, these have been some of the benchmarks of my advancing age through the years:

1) Always been a baseball fan. At some point in my early 30s, I realized that I was older than most MLB players.

2) I was a deputy sheriff for 28 years. At one point towards the end of my career, it ocurred to me that we were hiring new deputies that hadn't been born yet when I got hired.

3) In 2008, this country elected, for the first time, a president that was younger than me.

The next benchmark that I can see in the future is my 62nd year. I'll have outlived my father by then, and will be eligible for Social Security, if it's still around.

I can still remember being fifty-something, but I seem to be content with life at sixty.

Too many people think my kids are my grandkids. That pisses me off although it's a reasonable mistake.

On the other hand, I can take college courses for free. Then again, the kids in class could be my grandkids...

They don't even ask me anymore...apparently, my appearance makes it quite obvious. Interesting since I spent most of my adult life having to show ID as I always looked younger than my actual years.

I play in a senior golf scramble twice a week. Some of those guys make me feel young at 67.

Mine started early. My older brothers sent in a request postcard to a hearing aid place with my name on it.

I was 14 at the time. And hearing was fine.

That place sent literature for years, only stopped 'cause I move away for college.

"The new guy at work was 2 years old when I started there."
