Default To Be a Geezer

Age is a state of mind and as we have said on here, multiple times, GEEZERS Rule!

How do you qualify to be a geezer?

1.) At least 40 years old or have at least one child asking, "Dad, Mom, can I have the car keys please." (Once you have a child at this age, you will know why you are now a geezer.)
2.) A goal to be in better shape then the youngsters in your local gym.

Not hard at all to join the geezer brigade, though it is a select club.

edit. These rules are open for interpretation and editing.

I turn 49 in a few weeks. 3 Daughters, 24, 18, 13. I get called Sir more often than I used to.


2.) A goal to be in better shape then the youngsters in your local gym.

I train at home alone, but I think I can still qualify for this.

I'm quite happy to be the age I am.
