Re: Older people - How do you define 'young'

I'm very sorry about your dad, macloudt.
If you need someone to compassionately listen to your midlife experiences: health and fitness-wise I'm in much in the same situation you describe. Including being "equatorially challenged" I keep getting surprised when I look into a mirror. The image I have of myself is 20 years younger and 20 lbs lighter LOL. Memory is a funny thing.
It might actually be fun to hang out online together and just whine about stiff joints, thinning hair, the difficulties to sleep a night without waking up 10 times or how much slower cuts and bruises heal all of a sudden.

_C_ welcome to the board! (Better late than never. The welcome, I mean)
I very much agree with you that age is a question of perspective. I found that the older I get the bigger gets the gap between my current age and what I consider to be old. Did you make the same experience?

BTW, the USSR had no office of "president." Nikita Khrushchev held the dual positions of First Secretary of the Communist Party and Premier.
Thanks. I didn't know the correct word and completely forgot about teh possibility to simply look it up online LOL. I definitely need more sleep!
