Co-worker was explaining how to tell if you are getting old.

He said you are getting old if you think you would have better luck going under a ladder than trying to climb it.

I can still climb a ladder well ehough to do low level work but I had to buy a pair of work boots with a steel shank in the arch to prevent pain. Worked well.
I also bought a ladder at home despot for about $150 that has a fold down shelf about 5' up that supports up to 300#'s. What a great invention!

It's all good. mostly

You know you are getting old when you go to bed at the same time that you use to go out !

It's hard to be nostalgic when you can't remember anthing

I may be getting older but I refuse to grow up.

It's been said that the second thing to go when you get older is your eyesight.

Danged if I can remember what the first thing was.

I know I am getting old because it takes me all night long to do what I use to do all night long.

You know you're getting old when you no longer have to ASK for the senior discount, they just give it to you, and then make a big deal of it that you're even getting it.

My wife will ASK for the senior discount; then, they will ask to see MY ID, but never hers (???)! That really ticks her off! I tell her they probably think I'm her son or something.

When you take your son and his friend swimmimg and they go off on their own leaving you by yourself. While every female sees an old man by himself, thinking he must be some kind of pervret or something!

When my co-workers tell me to put my hat back on because the reflection from the shop lights hurts their eyes.

Fell off a 40' ladder one time. Good thing I was only on the first step.

You know you're getting old when buying cheese is considered a long term investment. No need to worry until buying green bananas seems wasteful.

Life is to short to ride an ugly horse or drive a Ford

You know you're getting old when getting old jokes aren't as funny as they used to be.

You know you are getting old when you are at the license bureau and they ask you if you want to renew for 2 years instead of one.

Then you have to ask yourself:

"Am I feeling lucky?"
