Am I the oldest member of the board

Gene LGene L Senior MemberPosts: 11,743 Senior Member
I realize I'm the best looking, from what I've seen of pictures posted by others, but I wonder if I'm the oldest.  I'm 75 and have been here a long time, both on this board and on this planet.  Just curious.  Sam may have been older than me, can't remember.

    I believe Jay is older than you by a couple of years.

    I think Jay is in his early 80's.

    I'm kind of to the point that it's not how long I've lived. It's what I've outlived.

    You know you're getting old when all your favorite celebrities are dead. 😥
    Luckily, I still have a few left 🎉

    It's ok, my wife is older than me also, a fact that I keep reminding her of on a regular basis.  :D   But I know she is plotting something for my 50th birthday...... :#

    I quit counting birthdays.  Now it's just some anniversary of turning 21.

    I have now outlived 3 of my closest best friends.  Make me a little nervous at times...

    That doesn't scare me as much as the fact that our recently departed tactical throw cat almost outlived me. That's an eye-opener......

    It never crosses your mind (mine anyway) that your pets might outlive you. Weird realization when they almost do.

    Thats funny, the new puppy we just got had me thinking that if she has a comparable lifespan to the others we've own I'll be into my 70s when she passes so she might just be that last dog I own.  Very weird thought...

    I guess if I rescue another dog from the local shelter, I'm getting the oldest dog they have. Just to be safe. 👍

    Put the laser dot on the face of an intruder.  The cat will do the rest.

    At your great age do you remember, is it an intruder, a visiting relative or just a cat.

    I think Gene would conduct himself in a manner we'd all wish to achieve.

    On a more serious note.

    My first remark wasn't, obviously.

    Gene will, I am sure, act correctly in any circumstances he may encounter.

    Hmmm......a LGTTC (Laser Guided Tactical Throw Cat)......I never thought of that upgrade.  Now I may have to get another cat.....

    I'm not sure "guided" is the correct term for a cat, more like a LETTC, changing the G to an E for "encouraged"  ;)

    We did have a cat that was definitely laser guided......she could never resist that red dot.  She would have been a failure as a weapons system though.  If anybody outside of the immediate family set foot in the house she would disappear like a puff of smoke and not resurface until they were gone.

    I like that idea. If I can get an after market laser.....I'll have to figure out where/how to mount it. Could get interesting.

    You don't mount it, you just point the laser dot where you want the cat to attack (like the crotch for example 😵)
    Then you throw the cat with the most attitude at the target.
    Then leave the room as quickly as possible because it won't be pretty.
