Now *this* is growing old disgracefully!

Sixty may be the new 40 but Bill Clinton hates it - Yahoo! News Apparently my whiny cohort, the Baby Boomers, are beginning to hit the big ole SIX-OH, and not liking it!
"Sixty is the new 40. You see baby boomers buying Harley-Davidsons and taking off on a trip," said AARP executive Shereen Remez."But baby boomers are also continuing to work because they didn't save like their parents. They used credit cards."
mine Ouch. I guess I'm more typical than I thought. My littlest baby is a 100th Anniversary DynaGlide. We won't talk about the credit cards.
In a book being released next month, "Sixty Things To Do When You Turn Sixty," a group of doctors, comedians, entrepreneurs and authors offer tips for turning 60. They from taking up meditation and running a marathon to being a grouch.
"Grouch". Great. That's what *I* wanna be! But Garrison Keillor says it best.
"There's a new survey out saying that people who take a positive view of aging actually live longer than those who grouse and grumble, which is hogwash and I am paying no attention to it," write U.S. comedian Garrison Keillor."I turned 60 last week and it's no picnic and anybody who says so is whistling in the dark."

Precious, Ha ha ha I love it!
Looking at 46 in another month, myself-- for some reason, this one bites a little more than the others. Eh, there is a very good reason for that, but life goes on.... and it's all good.<br /> <br /> And the ride? Her nickname is "Precious", and she <i>loves</i> to run!
Y'know, I'm thinking that when I reach 60, I'm gonna finally learn how to ride a motorcycle. Then I'm gonna take off to wherever. I'm turning 46 on the 30th, and I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do when I grow up. I don't anticipate 60 being different. I'm going to take each year I get as blessing instead of a curse.<br /> <br /> And it would be the likes of Bill Clinton and Garrison Keillor leading the whines.<br /> <br /> BTW, Laurie. Nice ride.
