    Default A new forum for old timers?

    Would like a forum for outdoorsmen who are past their prime... in their golden years... over the hill, etc. Topics which would be of interest to folks between the ages of 50-?. We could post about challenges, health issues, vintage stuff, reminiscenses, etc. Just a thought.

    I resemble all the above.. Can we speak English, I can't understand all this hash tag this and hash tag that. I thought hash was for breakfast and a tag is the thing on my underwear that irritates my backside.

    I am only 62. Can you make the old guy forum for those over 75? I still have a sheep hunt or two in me.

    With my new stints I can stay with the green dots no worries. Yep I would like a forum where only over fifty can post but all could read. Not sure I will ever make it to over 75 forum like Kingfisher. King saying I remember when this was all water should give a clue to his age.
    Now left only to be a turd in the forrest and the circle will be complete.Use me as I have used you

    Hey, sometimes it's preferable being old and alone to hanging with the yoots.

    Believe it or not I tried to have my daughter explain this # crap to me and I STILL don't get it. Gotta be one of the most stupid things they've thought of yet....

    But that's what my parents were saying about the Beatles haircuts when they first came out too.....

    Guess it's gone full circle......lol
    Sheep hunting...... the pain goes away, but the stupidity remains...!!!
