      You wake up in the morning and everything hurts.

      You bend over to test your tub water temperature and everything touches.

      People start calling you  "maam"

      ...you have sense enough to take personal responsibility instead of stupidly assuming things will take care of themselves.  You make an effort and create concrete plans to control your destiny.

      You have the wisdom to see people and situations for what they truly are, rather than be blinded by image.

      It takes you 3 months of training to run a mile nonstop, when as a child it took you seven months.

      You can climb Mt. Everest without becoming emaciated.
      Age is my best friend!

    When someone says  "Hey mister could you just move out of the way "
                                                  and you think they said
                                        "Hey buster  would you  hang  with me today "

    When a kid looks at your old typewriter keyboard and asks, "Where's the screen?"

        When there are more years behind you than ahead of you.
        When you are the elder one in the family as your elders are dead or dying off.
        When you reminisce about the good old days.
        When you appreciate the tunes of Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, & other old masters that YOUR PARENTS LOVED.
        When you can't/don't/won't understand the music of today. 
        When you frankly don't understand the youth of today(really, I have reached that stage- oh the.....HORROR I am becoming an old curmudgeon).
        When you know that death is NEARER than you think. 
        When you know that in 50 years time you will be........GONE.
        When you look in the mirror and see an old person looking back.

        Oh dear, getting depressed just writing this..........Oh, crap, crap, crap.....alas.

    When you reach for things and always knock something else over (Dang that psychomotor spatial acuity!)

    Don't remember what you wore Monday and wear it again Thursday -  - and don't care.

    Need your reading glasses to eat.

    Why do elevators always give me the shaft and bring me down?

      Because you don't listen to enough Aerosmith!  "Love in an elevator - livin' it up while we're goin' down..."

        I firmly believe you are only as old as you feel. I have lots of energy and look forward to great, new experiences with people I probably haven't met yet.
