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
Joseph

C7:
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.

Pete that makes you older than me. :shock: I thought I was just a bit older than you. Don't the policemen look young these days.

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.

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.

Ganga:
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.

I used to think that until June of this year.

What I enjoy is the ages we are at do not have bearing on the amount of knowledge imparted on these forums. A young fellow like Nick (either one of 'em - Brown or C57) can go HTH with us older hoary fellows - Tattie and Musky and Rob B and present exceptionally well. All are welcome and appreciated.

I further maintain that the day you don't learn something new is a bit of a waste.

I'm a little worried that there's nobody over the age of 61... Is this the cut off point? When the liver finally gives up the ghost?
