I'm only 53, and I figure I still got a lot of living to do yet. I can still run with the big dogs, or I can stay on the porch. Only difference is I decide when I run or when I stay! You definately aren't OLD!

Default Old age

I not only opened the can of worms, seems I tripped over it and spilled it on the new carpet.

So, to use a term from from my reenacting hobby, we have a bunch of old "graybeards" out on the racetrack as well. This is too funny.

Now that we've done the bathroom and dysfunction jokes, all thats left is memory! Just hope I remember what I'm supposed to do once I leave the pits?

Maybe we ought to start the OFRA (Old Farts Racing Association).

Default Return to the track

In the long term, that's where the payoff will be. I look forward to that day when, just maybe, I can trade jibes with some of my fellow RJ members in the staging lanes!!
