I'm 53, same as Leslie and betctru (wow, that's hard to spell!)

I take my username for most forums from my license plate, betctru, which is Betsy True in license plate text.  Which is my name.  I just figured out how to change the published name from the username, so now it won't be so hard to spell or remember!

Ok, Leslie and Khabita, when are your birthdays--who is the oldest???

    Ok math majors...I'm 2/3 of Jeff's age.

    Sports Fans...The picture of John Riggins tearing away from a Miami defender in the Super Bowl that was on the cover of Sports Illustrated? You can't see Riggo's jersey number in that picture but that's how old I am.

    Douglas Adam's Fans...I'm two years older than the meaning of life.

    Edit!



    Well how about that...You can see his number!

    I am 58 but most of the time feel 39. My body is quick to remind me of my actual age when tested though.  ;D

    I am 39, but there are days when my body says I'm older!  People who say kids keep you young don't have any!  ;)

    I'm 46 but deserve to be a lot older. As Indiana Jones says, "It's not the years, it's the mileage."

    I was a lot vague upthread about my age, but looks like most are confessing.  Without saying the number . . . I'll be getting my first early retirement Social Security check in a few months.

    Welcome tecwriter! I had to tell my grands if they wanted to talk to NiNa to call instead of texting. Geez, I was bombarded with messages & still trying  to answer the first one.  Mademe grouchy! ??? I do love my Kindle and iPod though!

    Hah, my parents went out of state for a week, and I sent my mom so many texts, she finally bit the bullet and figured out how to send a reply.

    Eh, if I weren't around, my mother wouldn't know her way around anything more technologically complicated than a clock. So, I keep her up to date, at the very least.

    My license plate, the first vanity plate I've ever registered reads: RUNMBCL. Points awarded to those who can sound it out...I've found that only one in five get it first try. Hint: I came up with it last year as I was driving to town hall to renew my registration and someone cut me off in traffic.

    Yes, that one's good, too. I thought, Run, Imbecile! before Teninx ran him down with his car! LOL

    I'd say the three of us speak pretty good license plate, though!

    Are You An Imbecile? is correct!   Run, imbecile is also a fit but a little more agressive than I had intended.
