Two years out of High School. Chasing women, getting stoned.

I was 8. We moved from CA to eastern KY. My Grand father had died and My grandmother was alone so we moved to allow her to stay home.

Oh and I thought everyone talked funny. Now I talked the same way.

I was chasing little girls around at age 12; didn't catch any either. Married the first woman who looked at me sideways, still married to her.

Is it too late to trade her in or get a refund? I have the receipt.
Despite the "Low Blue Book Value"...at this point, I'm sure you must know..."It's cheaper to keep her"!!!! :lol:

The Mrs. & I have had that conversation.

She's afraid I'm going to end up with a 30 year old chippie with an after-market chest who just wants my money. My reply is always, "so what's wrong with that?"

I just tell her I'm renting next time.

I had a traveling job and I told my new wife that good jobs were a lot harder to find than a good wife.

I was 11 years old and really into the "space" thing! The Apollo 11 mission had me glued to the television. I built models of the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo spacecrafts. My personal favorite was the lunar module all painted and foil wrapped to look like the real thing!...those were the days! :-D NO VIDEO GAMES AND SOCIAL MEDIA CRAP!!!

Glenn, Same here! I think I had the same models you speak of - the lunar being the coolest of all. My dad did most of the building and I remember him freaking out any time I wanted to touch it. At 7, I wanted to play with it as much as stare at it on my shelf, but didn't want to wreck it and get clobbered.

Maybe it was the cocaine years? It’s all a blur but it was fun. Especially the sex! Somethings you never forget.

After that it was the 80’s and I threw up for 10 years. Movies suck, disco still sucks, cars suck. The whole decade sucked!

Your math isn't right. You trade in a 60 year old for TWO 30 year olds...

In theory it sounds good but, then I'd have to talk to two vice just one. Don't get me wrong, I love the ladies but just in smaller doses nowadays.
