I am 59 and proud. I am not offended by the oversight or mistake. My mother (really my mother-in-law) is 83 and still manages a 1500 acre farm. She uses the web and email. We bought her a digicam for Christmas. She still learning but is willing to try. Closed minds find new things difficult to accept. I am glad that my parents (who are both deceased) encourage me to be open minded and try many things.

Colt-45, you're hillarious :lol: Boy, after a long Monday, I sure needed a good laugh :P Thanks!

I'm sorry but I beat you with your age. Let's just say that I'm older than you are and just got my first digicam about a month ago :roll:

Ok, ok... I'm 42 and will be 43 this November :mrgreen:

I remember when I hit 40. It wasn't so much the age or how I felt that made me think I'm going over the hill. It's those darn doctors! It's the year that I paid the most expensive diagnosis for just going in for my annual physical and eyes check up!

The doctors asked me if I was having any "out of the ordinary" symptoms. I got out my list and started reading... yes, that many symptoms, so I had to write them down before I forget (oh yes, that was one of them too, forgefulness).

Both doctors did this. They read the top of my chart then concluded the diagnosis... "you just reached the age". That's it ?!? I paid a $300 deductible for that !!! Ok, ok... I see... losing my thinking is part of going over the hill too...

Ha-ha... At least I'm only 1/2 the age of 84.

41. shall I get the Zimmer frame now ?

Joking aside this does highlight the ludicrous situation of ageism. In the work place in particular it seems once you pass early thirty you are considered over the hill.

Yet in my experience it's the people past this age that bring the most relaiability, experience and common sense amonmgst other qualities.

Ah well I'll get my cardigan, cup of cocoa and sit back in my rocking chair listening to Val Doonican and Roger Whittaker !!

Bah old people who needs them...

I'll be young for the rest of my life!!

Well I'd miss the older people cause they teach us (most of us) youngens lots of lessons and stuff in life.

Now as to photography...seems to run in my family for a while, so far I know my great grandfather was doing it, and my grandfather was going it, and so am I.

I have 2 stereo cameras and some other odd camera from the past. Too bad I can't get stereo glass slides for them anymore.
