Was thinking about the demographics of Barthmobile, (that's what you do when you're my age).
80+
70 to 80
60 to 70
50 to 60
less than 50
I'm 81. I think Carl Flack may be out oldest member at 90. Carl's so old we should make a special category for him ROTFLMAO

Are the two of you going to tell us what category you fit in? OTOH, I was told you never ask a woman her age wack Maybe this can be sort of a poll.
Tere is 60. I'll keep a tally and report the results.

Wow! Carl,

Where and why did all those years go by so fast???

I only feel & act what my mind tells me, however I know I must be older than 42. ROTFLMAO

Let the good times roll on. Maybe the expression "keep on trucking" fits us all.

The older we get the less of a percentage a day of your life becomes.

It can be a mixed blessing! As one with plenty of hair, sometimes my brain overheats and people tell me I act weird.
(That's my story anyway)...

Have Barth, will travel, soon Tooling Along

At this point I still cannot call myself a Barthmobiler, though I have belonged to this group sense 2012. And have been searching for the perfect coach sense then. (Not really that picky, just have to find the one you like and can pay for.Cool)

I certainly can relate to the aging part though. The hair thing I can't complain about. I have two brothers, one 13 months my senior and one five years my junior. Both bald from the're early twenties.ROTFLMAO.
I'm now 66 and still have a decent head of hair. Thinning on top but still there.

As Marvin+Doris have stated, "getting old beats the alternative". Just before I joined Barthmobile I had been diagnosed with Bladder Caner, and a year later was down sized at the company I worked for. But it's all good. We all live on. I will never complain because my neighbor in all probability is worse off than I am.

The Cancer treatments were successful to this point. And I have been able to save some money to go toward the purchase of my perfect Barth. Aging or not, who has it better?

So far, only 5 Barthmobilers have been courageous (or brave, or boastful, or silly, or forthright, etc ROTFLMAO) to tell us their age. One is over 90, one is over 80, one is between 60 and 70, and one is less than 50. Thumbs Up

Jim--over 80
