    I stick to the Navy imagery: A battleship, two destroyers and a very soft PT boat.

    What about either an aircraft carrier (comes flying out at 200mph) or the submarine... That last little sucker sneaking out when you least expect it

    Okay, you know your getting old when you spend the afternoon on your knees bent over
    (no jokes, I wasnt grabbing my ankles) replacing my clutch cover, mind you had to get the old gasket off the engine which took some time, and fooking sore as hell the last two days. Even my glutes hurt....

    You know your getting old when you go to the doc and he gets you to do something while he is checking knee, foot, hand and elbow reflexes, and he gets you to do somethkng to distract you because you have developed the ability to manipulate those reflexes. Went for a disability pension review today and such was tbe case. Fooken doc banged away so much at my joints they are throbbing now.

    You know you're getting old when you shake your head for 10 minutes to remove the cobwebs from your head, get a massive headache, then come to the realization they are not cobwebs, but ear hairs.

    You go to the barber to fix your hearing problem.

    When you stand up to fast and you leave your thoughts down below, only to have them catch up a bit later.

    I've realized I have to quit putting things "in a safe place" if I ever want to find them again!

    When you become so mentally discombobulated that you do things like attempt to put a watch on a wrist that was already wearing one and/or SUCCEEDING in unintentionally placing a second contact lens onto an eye that was already wearing one... Swear! :(

    You know you are getting old when you call 911 because of restricted breathing and the EMTs arrive, load you up, and take you to the barber for a nasal trim.
