    Quoted from Grayman_EM:

    The one restaurant we spent most of our time at when I was small and I remember all the prizes we used to get. I just wish it was still around and after watching most of the "The Food that built America" episodes I feel cheated that I haven't seen any giving credit to Burger Chef and what they invented and started. It was the owners who ran it into the ground but the people who ate there loved it.
    [quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

    Oh man, the Tomater Gator sticker, I used to have that and a bunch of the other Burger Chef stickers on the toy box my grandfather made for me. I think its still in my mom's garage.

    I never would have remembered that.

    You know you are old when you can screw up your knee just getting off a stepstool too quickly, and it takes six weeks to stop limping, and all the while the pain site migrates around as you adjust your gait to favor different muscles and tendons that happen to hurt the least for the time being, until they too get sore and you adjust your gait again.

    That's my life recently, and no, I didn't see a doctor, I thought I just twanged a tendon, I could still get around and even still push-mow my lawn, and my life could not tolerate surgery and recovery anyway (knowing full well what that would entail as my daughter did have knee surgery in November). But I may have to go see one after all if this keeps up, maybe I can get a cortisone shot or something...

    You also know you're old when you feel no compunction about complaining publicly about your physical ailments! However, I do realize that tons of folks deal with much worse.

    Still, to think one goofy misstep can cause this much aggravation. I hope I can still pass the "old man test" I posted about before come my next birthday!

    Parkour!! Park bench, more like!

    Be careful that you don't damage the other knee as it now has to take on extra weight.

    I take one daily, and it seems to help with stuff like that, though you won't notice right away. Sam's and Costco both sell it under their own brands, but it's the same stuff.

    If it makes you feel better, my dad had a much worse stepstool injury when I was a kid. It was a 3-legged wooden stool, and it flipped over when he fell off of one. One of the legs went straight up his butt, and he had to go to the hospital.

    “Rectum? Hell yeah, it damned near killed him!”

    Well damn, the myxoid cyst came right back after just a month. And a new one is starting on the next finger over. Now I really know I’m old.

    Quoted from swampfire:

    Here’s how you really know you’re old. I had a painful blister on my right index finger. I came to find out that it’s called a “digital myxoid cyst”, and it’s caused by osteoarthritis. Basically the joint degenerates and leaks fluid into the surrounding skin.

    So, what kind of U.S. news is being fed to the Maple Leafers up north ?

    #4970 37 days ago

    The US is North of me but, We get pretty much the same news you get. Same channels and broadcasting. Canada is trying to change that though. They are removing American commercials and replacing with Canadian. The only time I really hate it is during Super Bowl. So I just set up a cheap antenna to watch the halftime show!

    #4977 35 days ago

    Back in my partying days, I was always looking forward to retirement so I could be the old guy sitting at the end of the bar getting quietly pickled all day long, flirting w the waitress.

    Not so much anymore. Still looking forward to retirement, sure, but I'll find other things to occupy my time.

    You had at least 62 years to get ready for it.

    It's not that bad---if you are in good health. The only thing I miss are the friends and family who have gone before me.

    Now you will get to call your own hours. And throw the alarm clock away.

    I'm still going to work, I do home remodeling. Even at my age I was in an attic today in 80 degree heat outside and 100 in the attic running a 220V cable to relocate a range to a different wall. New outlet, tied into the breaker box and done. I think staying active is good.

    I was 14 when my paternal grandfather died. He was 83. I thought he was older than dirt. And now that I am 70, James Caan did not seem old at all at 82. But I am hoping for 90, like Sean Connery

    You know you are old...
    when it takes 4 fricking weeks to get over a pulled back muscle. Damn, I was just about to look into the dreaded chiropractor, and it went away. Last time I did that it took about 10 days, and that was about 10 years ago. My fault, my brain still says I'm 35...not 67, I'm NOT out of shape, but age does not care what you see in the mirror. You have to think about what you are going to do, and How you are going to do it, especially when it comes to those unusual physical situations that you don't work those muscles that often. I know better, but it's been so long since I screwed up..I forgot!!

    my body punishes me when I do anything out of the ordinary too - once or twice a year I pick up a truckload of firewood, haul it to the backyard and stack it - a much different day than 8 hours in front of a computer....oooh, the pain, the pain.......

    My wife broke her leg getting out of bed at 32 years old. Straight across. Needed a titanium rod put in.

    We were more concerned that it was indicative of some other larger problem. But thankfully it wasn’t. It’s been 9 years, and she’s perfectly healthy, full recovery, but she still feels the hardware when it gets cold or steps funny.

    Its wild how something like that can happen from the simplest every day things.

    Internet , bank machines certain credit cards curreny down for parts of Canada since 5am...I think it's an attack from the Russians. This has never happened before in Canada. My internet band bank is still down
    .Thanks ...I missed the second round of the NHL draft and had to return empties to replenish by beer supply.
    Joking aside..what if you needed money to buy baby food?? Lesson learned have a cash supply.

    I learned that in the early 80s. Friday evening rolled around and my pocketbook was empty. The banks had closed for the day. Actually, they closed for the weekend. No Saturday morning banking. And there was no such thing as a cash machine.

    It sucked.

    Cash = Federal Reserve Notes (in the US), and they’re at the tippy-top of the money pyramid, as long as that pyramid stands. Then the new pyramid is grain - whiskey - bullets.

    I like to keep $5k in our safe in case a cash-only deal pops up that’s too good to pass up.

    I can’t work today because Rogers is down. Made a great long weekend?! Monday will be crazy though!
