Default You know you are VERY old when

I am very worried where the Freewing A-10 wing is, and I am not hungry for food.
Took 1/2 hour to find it. Right behind my work chair.

You're fine. That kind of thing has been happening to me in my workshop for years and my planes still fly fine.

But as of today I am officially worried.

I was on hold this morning and decided I needed to check the calendar on my phone to double check an appointment time. I spent 5 minutes walking around the house looking for my phone - which I was holding to my ear listening to elevator music

Getting old sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think I need a signature.

Yeah,

We are getting to the age where everything hurts. And what doesn't hurt doesn't work anyhow.

you know your getting old when your building a kit in the workshop....



your trying to find that very important pc of balsa you sculpted by hand and look all over every table 3,4 times only to discover you've run the pc over with the rolling chair your sitting on so many times ya can't use it or recognize it any more.......

and your ancient when you do this with every kit you build.

narrow is the place to land...wide is the space to crash....choose the narrow way!

I have spent an hour working on a part for a plane, then found what was left of it the next morning, after my dog found it.
I was too forgetful to put up the barrier, to keep my dog out of my space.

We have a cat that LOVES warmth of a Notrebook PC keyboard ... so any time I leave it alone - I have to cover with a magazine to protect the keys !!

We have a young 9 month old dog that destroys anything it can get hold of ... especially if its mine : Pens, PC Mouse, Paper towel rolls, Phone chargers, cables, you name it - she tears it to pieces. At night we have to segregate her of to a small room with literally nothing in it she can destroy ... so we can get sleep without waking up in morning to the carnage she used to create !

We know all about doggie boredom etc. and 'experts' reasons for it - but she seems to do it because she's showing US she can !!The other 3 dogs we have watch and ignore her.

I got that beat. I remember my [then] landlady asking me if I had seen her reading glasses, either of them. She told me she had been looking for them for the better part of an hour, and I had to keep from laughing. You guessed it; BOTH of them were up on her forehead!

Me? I've always been addlebrained.

I'm sure you've all heard about the 3 things you lose as you get older. First is your memory. Second is, ummm, well I forgot what the other 2 are!

You know you're getting old when you walk in to the Barber shop, get a haircut, walk out, and the same song is playing on the radio .

It's quite normal for the over "50" to experience a bit of dementia "senior momements" occasionally....our cognitive skills slow down as we age. It increases at different rates as we hit the "60", "70".... golden years.

The positive side is much of what we try to remember stresses us out.....like why we forgot, when we forgot, who we forgot, what we forgot.....stress just adds to the decline.......now I can legitimatley state "I don't" remember at conveiniant occassions.........

Serioulsy though, the fact that most of us here experiencing the "golden" ages, keep our cognitive skills healthy by building, flying, conversing, typing, fixing, programing, experimenting....ect, ect.......with our hobby.....sure beats doing crossword puzzles and baking (at least for me).......

I'm actually enjoying the "slow down".....I find myself looking at, appreciating and understanding my environment alot differently then when I was 30, 40, 50...........or was it when I turned 60.....

Indeed. And things that really used to torque you up, don't seem so world-shaking anymore.

I have a tendency to stick a ink pen over my ear at a call sometimes and having to brorrow one from the driver. Then realize when I stratch my head, that's where I put it.

My degree is Math/Physics so I got a jump start on ditzy-brain as in absent minded prof. I've been known to get lost in a walk-in closet, and the standing joke when friends came over to work on our hobby projects is it took more time to find the tools than to use them.

Yeah, getting old is forgetting where you put your car keys. If you forget what the car keys ARE FOR, you've got real problems!
