I feel old too, but it's better than the alternative of not getting old.

Cool Oy and another oy

Trip... in searching our basement I found a box of our dishes from 1955..Brookstone Melmac...Parrot Pop is a hoarder, six boxes of books..and items that are now considered "collectible".. The poor trashmen must think we are moving with everything I'm tossing....Remember...Growing old is mandatory.. growing up is optional.....

Default Early Card Computers

I knew I was old when I took my kids to a technology museum and I saw the early computers of punch card and wires vintage behind glass that I had originally worked on in my youth.

Mind you they still ask me about latest trends and why their computer is not working. That is because they are true users or we used to say GUI plotters.
All they want is to turn it on and use it.
