    The funny thing about age is that I don't give a puck!
    I have not had a birthday in two, three, or maybe more decades and just don't care enough to keep track of that meaningless to me number.

    People look at me like I am nuts when I am asked how old I am and I respond. "I have no idea".
    Sure, I could do the math, but as I said above, I just don't give a puck!

    How old do I feel? I guess based on what I already typed, I can only say I don't have a frame of reference to go by, but I feel fine.

    Age my spouse thinks I look and act like? Sometimes she accuses me of being childish, so take it from there.

    Age that others see me as? Well I don't get carded when buying booze much anymore, so old enough to drink.

    I am starting to get stuff from Social Security so I guess I am getting up there a little bit.

    It was only about 11 years ago that I bought some Black Jack gum, bought some Necco's too. There's a place in Seaside, Oregon that sells old fashioned candies, can't remember the name of the store. They probably still sell it.
    Couldn't afford it so we got the next best thing on our trips down to Grand Isle: "gomme de la mer".

    (French for "gum of the sea").

    Wait until the tide went out, picked up the natural black tar in the sand, rinsed and chewed it.

    Free, and pretty much the same ingredients as Black Jack Gum ... petroleum based, but salty.

    Ha! I made out with a buck-toothed girl one night at a drive in, and I had red lips too! She almost gnawed my lips off.

    I think you were workin the wrong end!

    Don't know the place in Seaside, but there's one in Bandon that sells Salt Water Taffy that you can watch them make, and pull, and pull, and pull........................................................
