I jumped out of a plane once in 1978, in an attempt to 'cure' my aversion to heights........didn't work.....and there's no damn way I'd go out on that ledge...with or without a parachute.

I guess you'd have a hard time doing this then. I don't know the guy's name, he was just in front of me in a zip line group. And yeah, it IS hard to step off the platform but two seconds later it's fun.

This is me right before graduating from USNA in May 1981, with my 15 year old sister. I know it's not a recent photo, but we both still look the same.

I don't care how high up I am now......as long as I can keep one foot on the ground.

Khan,

Is that a pic of your and new DH's hands from your wedding? Interesting rings, they look like class rings or something along those lines.

His high school class ring from 1970.
Mine a ring given to my mother from 1934.

We were discussing buying rings, and I thought why waste money if we have rings?

I used to have my mother's high school ring from 1946. It was a similar style.

Nice idea to use rings you already had, especially since they go together.

Congratulations!

That's sweet, Khan.

The photo reminded me that both of us have not worn our rings for some time now. It interferes with our daily activities.

Swinging?

If you're offended, I meant the kind on the playground. Holding on to metal chains scratches up rings something awful.

I often need to take my ring off when working, and forget where I put it down. So, I thought why bothers? My wife is also afraid of knocking the stone off her ring doing housework.

Until now, it never occurs to me that people may look at our hand. I never look to at someone else's hand. So, when we are in public, people may think that we are boyfriend/girlfriend. So what?

Congrats Khan! But you're not quite a geezer. I think geezerdom starts at 95
