Age is just a number!!! :D

Your as old as you feel.

After I had couple of drams of Solera last night I felt like a 21y.o. Whisky ( in moderation) will keep all of us feeling young. :thumbsup: :smoke: :sleep:

We may need to run this poll again as people move from one age bracket to another, upwards in most cases!

Lots of young pups on this board.

This year I will be 62!

A few years back when I was the age of most of the forum readers, I didn't care for Whisky (a long time Port drinker). It took a few more years of maturity and wisdom to learn what I was missing! But it seems I am in good company now!!

Cheers

That's only 9 no... (doing math in head).. 8 years ahead of me. Means we're in the same cadre of life experiences. (Howdy Doody; Uncle Bob; peanut gallery; Capt. Kangaroo; Lone Ranger; Bikini Atoll; Sputnik; Kennedy; Gemini; Apollo...) Gad! We've seen a lot.

Musky:

We sure have, do you also remember Superman, Ozzie and Harriet, Wagon Train (young Clint Eastwood),....... lots of good stuff to grow up with.

My Dad used to wind down at the end of a hard day's work with a Canadian Club in those days. Good thing he didn't drink Single Malts back then, I probably would've started drinking a lot younger.

Les:
It was probably just my youthful exhuberance spilling over. :P
...And yes they do look younger. Heck, 20 years ago when I was a hoary "old" jailguard at the police college for training, a troop of rookies marched by. My comment then was "Oh my gawd, we're being protected by babies!" It's only gotten worse, only the OIC is around my age now.

C7: I remember watching Clint on wagon train, then when the reruns hit, it was oh my, that's "Dirty Harry", etc. We received our first TV (a black and white) a day or two before the first manned Mercury launch in May 1961. Until then I had to depend on neighbours for any telly watching.
My grandfather watched the last pony express rider leave Rhode Island as a child while I've seen Mars landings and incredible leaps in technological communications. We can dram with another person on the other side of the globe in realtime. That would have been inconceivable two generations back.

I've asked relatives (especially my Mother), I've looked out my birth certificate, I've checked the census, I've considered the fact that my eldest daughter is 17, I've counted the number of cars that I've owned, I've thought about the fact that I have owned a considerable number of houses, I've even checked the dates on the records in my collection and I find myself faced with the brutal truth that I am no longer 21. It turns out that I am in fact 44 :o . How can this be? I think I have to reconcile myself with the fact that I didn't do a single sensible thing for the first 25 years of my life. By this logic I started to grow up from that point and I am now 19. Ah its good to be young!

I'd say you were too young to be drinking with us but then I remembered that you're in the UK. :oops: :D

Is this a different Pony Express than I'm familiar with? I always thought it was St Jo, Mo to Sacto. But I do understand the sentiment here. BTW, the last widow of a CSA soldier passed away recently.

Sorry, I'd missed the response. Actually I was being a trifle sarcastic ... in actual fact he watched the last Mail coach leave Providence R.I. Family myth says it was a Wells Fargo coach but you know family myths!

"Slightly older guys." you mean...just a wee bit follically challenged and with the odd wrinkle of distinction, but
still "young at heart..."

I like that! Les you know you're only as old as your soul...and that's older and younger than any whisky.

Oi! It's not only the 'slightly older guys' that have problems retaining their hair you know. I turned 25 last month and I'm folically challenged!

Mind you, in the future I'll be saving loads on haircuts and shampoo and will never need to worry about bad hair days. So really it's a good thing.
