Default Am I the youngest one here

I started thinking about it and I suspect I'm hanging out with 16,000 senior citizens?

I recently turned 53 and I have this feeling the average age is a tad higher . Was thinking about coming back in another 12 years perhaps , or is it never to early to learn wood working?

Sorry Rick.

It is experience and good looks that count, not age.

As you have not posted and avatar , we cannot see how you measure up.......LOL.

PS 16K seniors in a population of 100K +, is about average....

Do not worry Rick, in 2 years you can join the club . AARP and start getting senior discounts
55 is the magic number, so I guess we will have 16001 senior then, also remember we all were 53 once.

Been eating those funny brownies again, eh? Well, I am not a senior citizen yet. I'm just middle-aged. I figure on living until I'm 144, so that has to mean I'm middle aged, right? Smartass damn kid.
