What does it matter? If you want to call me old you can. If you don't, you don't have to. Nothing of importance relates to artificial markers of age. "youth" "middle age" "dotage" are analogue markers. The digital markers relate to chronology and are the ones used. You vote at 18 or 21 or whatever else is legal in your society. You qualify for your pension at 55 or 60 or 65 or 70 or whatever the legislators have decided.

Doesn't matter if you're an "old" 55 or a "young" 70. Digital markers govern your admittance to the cinema or your eligibility for the Presidency of the USA. Analogue markers may be relevant to your fitness for either. Doesn't matter if you call Bush or Blair young, middle aged, old or whatever. They are the age they are. They're in the physical condition they're in. They have the mental faculties they have.

How realistic is it to think that 'old age' begins ... it when virtually none of us will reach age 120.

My father-in-law, who died in his late seventies, considered himself to be 'middle aged' right to the end.

I was called "middle aged" right here in AUE when I was barely in my thirties. I wonder if that poster has sinister long-term plans?

The bible gives us three score and 10 years. So where, pray tell, do you think middle age is?
Having reached the remarkable age of 60 today, I ponder this question. Surely, I'm now an old man, not someone ... as the article puts it. I wonder what's middle about it when virtually none of us will reach age 120.

When I reached 60, I thought I was starting on my last lap.

Then I thought, what if there are 10 laps, not 7?
So I went back to my penultimate lap, and entered the final one at 63. There was no escaping it then. Hey, there might be a victory lap, but that doesn't really count.
When I get older
losing my hair
many years from now
will you still be sending me a Valentine?
birthday greetings? bottle of wine?

Nearly there with you, except for some old geezer who looks back at me from the mirror, feel quite young. Thank God for Vitamin V.

Do that too often and you'll go blind. Seriously: consult your physician.

"Old" = 75! C'mon Shelley! Once you're 25, you're considered old; EVERYONE know that!
Happy B-Day! I didn't realise you were so old yourself. I thought early to mid 50's.
