Maybe we should start a survey of all our members here to find out who our oldest is. I know I ain't.

Really? Somehow I got the feeling you were much younger in your posts. :) I guess age is a matter of the mind.

I have always enjoyed your posts, Might I say. I wondered why you were so knowledgeable in linux. Well, You got more years on me! LOL.

Thanks for sharing!

Of course age matters - especially if you are a 15 year old wanting to get into a nightclub.......;)

My older clients usually say "Hold on. Im writing that down" when I tell them something about linux mint. I used to laugh at that but now I use a legal pad all the time to write things down. I think I have become my older clients - lol...

I've heard that sex after sixty is like shooting pool with a rope.



There's an older-ish couple and they went to the doctor for the husband's yearly physical exam.

As the husband is changing out of his gown and back into his own clothes, the wife talks to the doctor.

“How's my husband doing?” she asks.

“Well,” he said with a bit of a sigh, “it's going to be a bit of touch-and-go, but if he gets three warm meals a day and a lot of good loving, I think he might just pull through.”

A little while later, the couple is in the car and heading home.

“So,” asked the husband, “what did the doctor have to say?”


...


“He said you're gonna die, hun.”
