  • OT: How to tell when your old

    My shop is about 30' behind the house and in winter I have to make the long cold dreary walk to get to it. Of course in winter the cold makes me need to pee so by the time I get into the shop I have to go back to the house.

    The town I live in POP: 3000-ish still has a movie theatre in it (since 1917), newly renovated. It was shut down off and on for the last couple of years with covid and since it has reopened I took the wife unit to a show. Now it runs movies only at night on Thurs, Fri. Sat. and Tues and Sunday afternoon shows. When I was a kid the matinees where on Sat. afternoon and it was always packed with the town brats. We went on to the Sunday matinee and there was a decent turnout but there wasn't anyone there under 65, no childrem. I guess we old farts just can't stay up a night. Times have changed.

      You don't worry about product warranties.

        As a (now deceased) friend of mine used to say: "I'm now old enough that I don't even buy green bananas"

                    I can remember how to rebuild engines that nobody (almost) remembers.
                    I pumped gas that was 24.9 cents a gallon
                    I can remember when Linda Ronstadt was HOT
                    I can remember the license plate number of my first Ford Pickup
                    I can remember my high school girlfriends phone number

                    BUTTTTT

                    I can't remember where my 13/16" wrench is, or the last time I used it
                    I can't remember how much gas was the last time I filled up
                    I don't know any names of the hot girls nowdays
                    I can't remember the license numbers of the last few Ford Pickups
                    I can't remember my own cell phone number

                    ANDDDD

                    I can't believe I'm still married to the same woman, and it's been 45 years
                    I can't believe It cost way over $100.00 to fill my truck
                    I can't believe I spend lots of time in my shop, and manage to make good parts, mostly
                    I'm really happy I still have good friends, and they still like me (I think)

                    It's a good day above the grass!
                    I cut it off twice; it's still too short

                      The game that used to be played by men is now being played by boys.

                            That's what I was going to say. If I walk back to the house I'll forget why I went to the shop.
                            It's all mind over matter.
                            If you don't mind, it don't matter.
