Cost is going up but hers might be good for a carload of people...check. She might be worth keeping.

That's because they believe you're not smiling at them in order to pick them up. Still, in my mind, I want to believe it could still happen!

I'd venture to say this is first on the list!

Advantages of being old?

You may only have one more roof to replace and one more car to buy.

And when the dog dies, you might prefer to watch dog videos on YouTube rather than buy another one thus resulting in significant savings on vet bills.

Just tipping the iceberg with this starter list.

Let's face it - other than various discounts there are NOT ANY advanatages to getting old. Unless we consider that being retired is an advantage, and I believe it is for most people.

Therefore, I modify my statemetn: Other than various discounts the ONLY advantage to getting old is not having to work full time anymore.

I can't see my wrinkles if I try. Neither can my husband.

Not taking "myself" and life so seriously has allowed me to seriously appreciate life and myself!

as mentioned the cost is going up to $80 for a lifetime pass but seems it will be maybe july or so.

your wife's pass will work for up to 5 in a car, i believe, regardless of age of the car's occupants.
