As long as they're black and over the calf you're ok.

"Old" in your sixties is your current age plus 20. It goes down by five years for each decade after that, so you won't really be "old" until you turn 100. And because of the better overall health care you have likely had over your lifetime, you have a slightly better chance of reaching the century mark from 60 than does someone who is currently 70. Woo-hoo!

Congradulations, but you are not old yet. I turned 80 in July and suddenly, I feel old. Thank you for your service. I enlisted in the US Army in 1957, only did 3 years, but got to enjoy 15 months in Korea. Dang cold place.
