Sorry guys but bbbam1 told me that only red xs were showing up. So I changed my album from private to public and resubmitted the pics. The wine I drank (usually only one but tonight called for 3!)(6 oz. glasses only) was Benziger 2005 Merlot. Quite frankly it's really good! So that having issues here gave me a good excuse to have a couple more than usual! I missed the Lakers game to boot. I started watching it at around 5 here on the west coast. Next thing I know it's 8 pm here and they won! (by a point). Really weird. I feel like last's night show of Medium where the daughter lost track of 10 years of her life. I think I lost 3 hours some how?

There have been plenty of times when I would have loved to have lost 3 hours.......

It's not a great picture, from a phone. But this is from yesterday at Four Mile Ranch Golf Course outside Cańon City, Colorado.

Great photos everyone. However, one thing that comes thru is you all look middle aged, which means the reflection I see in the mirror is true, which is a reason I don't take photos of myself. One thing I find hard about growing old, is the outer no longer matches the inner.

Hey! I've earned every one of these grey hairs. I wear them like a crown and don't mind looking my age, at all.

True, I am the same person as I always was inside (just a little lot wiser). I am simply in disguise as an older person these days, and the disguise helps me to get great discounts at restaurants, theaters, and nearly everywhere I go.

Cop out! Post now before it's too late. Give our photos ten years and you will marvel at how young we all look.

Looking middle aged is good! You could have said elderly, a word I am really not fond of. For me, I am only truly middle aged if I am planning to live to roughly 135.

Being tall, and relatively thin, plus the fact that any weight I gain goes right to the midsection, I have to keep it off or I look like a python that just swallowed a pig...

I find growing older a really weird experience. I look in the mirror and think I don't look too bad for my age. Then I have a photo taken and have to ask myself who is that old hag.

I think the greatest difficulty I have is reconciling that I am probably half way thru my life. I still refer to my siblings and myself as the kids, mentally I feel way younger than my number.

However, glad so many people do feel happy with the middle aged label.

We is what we is

At least the Middle Ages sound better than the Dark Ages. (which got their name because there were so many knights )

I'd love to be middle aged. To me, middle age is 40, so since I'm 52 I'm way over middle age. Ain't no way I'm gonna live to be 104!

Where's that groaning smiley when I need it

I love the photo thread and seeing happy people in our generation. If we weren't inundated with photoshopped magazine cover photos of people barely past puberty all the time we'd think hey, we look pretty damn good.

Because we do.

Awwww, I'm so glad I got to check out this old thread! You all look great and all smiles, too! And a whole bunch of you boys definitely married up! I also love the ones with your pups! So cute!

And I know I'm late to the party, but I can't resist sharing. Here's are two that appear to indicate I have had a lifelong phobia about using a hairbrush!
