    HEY...Lets start a splinter group composed only of members in their 80's!

    We would thus distinguish ourselves from those "Junior Seniors".

    I would have the following as Charter Members:

    Bill Boggs
    Lois Winters
    Lon Tanner
    Myself
    Al Amoling

    Hal (That's me in the rear)

    I would like to arise but I am so sleepy and tired. I'm in after I take a nap.

    Careful, @Thomas Stearn. They might not allow young whipper-snappers in this thread. :eek:

    I propose that we nominate the eldest member as our spokesperson...we'll call ourselves "The Octos" !

    I know, Hal, you mentioned that before and said how proud you were about that and rightly so. I know that you stand head and shoulders above me. :) Love your sense of humor, I really do.

    Wondering how many members we would have...

    Hmmm... so far I think, Lon, Hal, and Tom. Anyone else?

    Come on in... the water's fine. :)
