when they bring you the retirement papers and you are many mango season older than the next guy in your unit.  when your handcuff key looks like something matt dillon used.


when you take out your backup gun, a j-frame with a tyler t-grip during qualifications and the rest of the units gathers around to see pops shoot the "old timer" gun.  when most guys in your unit don't know how to load/unload a wheel gun.

When you sit in a rocking chair and can't get it to rock.  I would also add that you are old when what doesn't hurt, doesn't work.

I think I must be right on the cusp 'cause Po'Willie doesn't know whether to let shrinkage or gravity take control, anymore.

....when your prostrate can cause you to piss more rounds, at one standing, than your Mini 14.

When, despite your affection for the Porsche 911 you try to get in one and it hurts bad enough that you instantly have no desire to own one. ever.

...when you tell someone to roll up the window and they start pushing buttons.....

...when you tell that same someone that the high beam switch used to be on the floor board...



The dimmer switch should never have been moved from the floorboard, by the way. 



I think that's another sign that I may be old? Now, get off my damned lawn.

When you remember taking a bath in a zinc tub in the kitchen and thinking you were rich.

Growing up in the fifties in the mountains, a zinc bath tub in the back yard made us feel rich! The same tub served double duty holding hog fat during kill'n time!

Remember driving up to the gas station and saying, "Fill er up with ethyl."

"Hey, Bob! I how's the new job at the gas station?"


"What job, Bill? I'm not working at the gas station."


"Huh. Somebody told me you was pumpin' ol' Ethyl..."

:rofl:  :rofl:
