I just turned 30 a week an a half ago ! Living in a college town in the Midwest, you start feeling old at 25 !!! And now I feel like a grandpa. Had a gal ask me why I had to ID her at the bar I work at cause she was really old, and she was only 23 !

I really feel sorry for those of us under 30 who think their whole life is already behind them.

They're being pretty dumb about it, and it tells me they haven't really lived.

Me? I'm staring 30 right in the eye and saying, "bring it, bitch". I'm looking forward to the rest of my years, because the biggest thing I've learned, is that the bad times never last, and there's plenty of ibuprofen and aspirin to go around.

I want either less corruption or more opportunity to participate in it.

Meister Brau out of Chicago introduce the first "Lite" beer, which later became Miller Lite - two of the most God awful beers ever created.

And because his birthday and Christmas were so close together, we couldn't say tell him what he didn't get for Christmas he could ask for his birthday and vice versa. If he wanted roller skates or a bike in the summer, we couldn't say it was a birthday or Christmas present. He just got them because he needed them. When he got older, he liked having his Birthday and Christmas present combined because then he could get a bigger and better thing than two smaller things. I guess it's what you make of it.

I remember party lines.
Riding a horse to school with a shotgun on the saddle.
Men acting like either men, or scoundrels.
"Ghetto" wasn't synonymous with African American thugs, it was where the Jews were pushed into.
Cocaine? What's that?
AIDS? You mean people are dying over sex?
Country music was Waylon, Jennings, Jones, and later, Straight. Marty Robbins was classic country.
The 80's ROCKED!! Until you looked at your family photos ten years later...
A mullet. Nothing more needs to be said.
Granddaddy still used a straight razor.
Daddy used a two sided safety razor.
Granny still rocked a bun
Mama did too.
Tv's had three channels. Get your ass up and change it if you don't like what's on.
It was also in black and white.
Slop the pigs, feed the horses, bring the cows around (on horseback), and GET THAT DAMN ROOSTER OFF MY TRUCK BEFORE IT GOES IN THE POT!! (It went in the pot anyway.)
Girls aren't unsupervised around young men, young men aren't unsupervised around girls, the girls didn't come home pregnant, and the young men weren't getting hit for child support before high school graduation.
You were lucky if you got to graduate. Those farm chores had a habit of wrecking the idea of getting a diploma...
Come check out your uncle's new ASSfault driveway!
Hey baby, I been thinking...let's try that indoor plumbing thang...
Oh no, I don't want nobody using the toilet in the house! And the hand pump is right outside the kitchen door, I don't need it inside, it'll just make a mess!
What do you mean the lights went out a week ago? My lamp is working just fine! (Notice no one noticed the tv stopped working)
Don't bother washing that truck, we live on a dirt road! Let the rain get it! Now go clean and oil your saddle, we're going to town tomorrow for Sunday meetin at the church, and them conchos need polishin too! And give George (the mule) a workout, he tried to run away with my buggy two weeks ago.
Don't wear your boots in the field, you'll mess'em up! Give'em here! Mama, I ain't got no other shoes...
You don't need'em on the tractor!

I'm 28.

On Bastille day, I will hit 52. Im not as good as I once was but as good once as I ever was! I may be old but Im not young! Growing old may not be fun but anything else sucks worse! I dont require anyone to respect my age but its wise to respect the front end of my old truck! Age isnt a state of mind, its simple math, 365 = 1 year!
