At what point did you start to feel your age ?
For me it was when my bladder became my alarm clock.
(which is not as bad as an older friend who says
" never trust a fart")

When I get to that point, I'll let you know.

Actually, I do everything I've always done--haven't slowed down any. I do feel very young--I just can't understand who that is staring back at me when I look in the mirror!

When I turned 50 and noticed weight was staying on me more. At age 55, when my hip was hurting me more and more and a found out that I needed a hip replacement done. When I found out that I couldn't drink as much water before bedtime as I use to......to much water/pop means getting up 3-4 times a night. The wife and I notice now that we can not physically do the things we use to be able to do!!!!!!!!!

LOL, I think the same way! Actually I got kind of a rude awakening that my age was showing...a few times while getting my hair cut the hairdressers would ask me if I dyed my hair. I didn't get it...why would they ask me that? Then in dawned on me...I don't have any grey hair yet, but by the wrinkles and such on my face, the hairdressers assumed I dyed my hair because....I Look Old!!! Oy Vey!

lol Fox Terrier.

I turned 52 last week, and this was the year I hit the proverbial wall.

Gravity sucks, ya know?

It's okay. I can still go to the occasional concert. I still like to play music so loud that it bounces off my lungs. But yeah, I've got the wrinkles, and a few white hairs are sprouting on the old head.

Now, when I don't know the name of every song playing on the hit radio stations here.

And when I finally get a chance to drive with no one (my 3 year old) in the car with me and instead of blasting the usually not kid friendly music as loud as I can, I put on something soothing like Norah Jones. It' relaxing after hearing my son all day some days, but it makes me feel old. oh well...

And when I took my boombox (sub-woofer) out of my truck when my son was born. For one reason that I would never get the chance to crank it up and the other reason is that I drive a suv and if I were to roll it over that 40 pound speaker box would do some damage to his or my head. I still have a nice stereo and door speakers but it's not still loud enough for me.
