You know you're getting old when 8pm is too late to post anything on these threads because you're already sound asleep in bed.

1. When you can't run a mile in 5-6 minutes anymore.

2. You put on some weight (can't be 120lbs. anymore, I'm now 130lbs., but normal for me).

3. When you color your hair a little more often now (especially if you're Brunette, that grey just creeps up on you.).

4. You watch a little more T.V.

5. You only go out every other weekend or 1 time a month.

6. You can only workout 1 time during the day (when I was younger I was running/jogging 2 times a day; earliest morning and in the evening).

7. When you sleep a few more hours now and go to bed early (before 11pm).

8. Your tattoos start to fade some and the color is almost gone (I don't have any, but I've seen it in other people who do).

9. You start joining a pool league or a dart league to occupy your weekend afternoon.

10. You start to prefer a tankini over a bikini, in females (not me!! I still wear bikinis, but I've seen other women, after age 35, opt for the tankini).

You know you’re getting old when you think back to the last time you used a payphone and you remembered it only costs 10cents for the call.

You know you are getting old when you are at a teaching hospital and the residents look 10 years old. HOW in the heck did they get old enough to finish med school, much less become a resident.

Or you remember the first big jump in oil prices...went from $.25 cents to $.50 cents a gallon almost overnight. Happened about the time I bought my first car. Liz

You are reminded of news...and discover they happened years ago!

When your normal bra doesn't do it anymore...

When you have a stack of old calendars in your closet, dating back more decades than you have fingers on your one hand, and with appointments made in your handwriting!

When you decide to walk instead of run a marathon...
