You know you're really old when;

You're out for a walk, pass some "senior citizen types" and they say "good morning SIR."

You lose something, can't remember where you put it, and can't be certain you even own one.

You're staring into the open refrigerator (trying to remember what you wanted) and one of your grandchildren asks you if you're trying to get a tan from the refrigerator's interior light.

The only women who think you're "cute" are all grandmothers.

You know how to use a rotary dial phone.

You know what a typewriter is for, and how it works.

You still own a VCR, a reel-to reel tape recorder, and a record player, & you call them "records", not "vinyl."

Your "ride" is a minivan.

You're "big bad bike" has three wheels, a big grocery basket, and no engine.

You think "texting" may be something like knitting.

You don't recognise any of the celebrities on magazine covers at the doctor's office.

Your favorite movies are in black & white.

You know how to read the time from an analog clock, (the kind with hands.)

You have hearing aids, but don't want to bother putting them in.

Your body has as many metal parts as one of your model locomotives.

You think a "hipster" is someone who has had one of theirs replaced.

You think "Starbucks" is a character in Moby Dick.

You drop a train part on the floor, and have to switch to a different prescription pair of eyeglasses to look for it.

When you bend over to pick it up you think, "what else can I get while I'm down here?"

Kneeling, getting back up, walking, sitting, and even lying down, all hurt.

You actually say "grovey" where people can hear you.

Your children aren't children, they're parents.

Your friends look really old.

You remember hearing about Woodstock on the news. If you were there, you were probably too stoned to remember anything.

You don't own, or want to own, a cell phone.

Practically everyone you meet asks you if you're OK.

People say "have a good day" like they think it's probably your last one.

When you don't care who makes you really angry because "life in prison" is not that much of a deterrent.

Did you ever see the movie "Going in Style"? THAT was funny! (The original from 1979, I mean.)
