Egads! I am getting old


I suddenly realized last night that I am getting old. It was a brief epiphany while watching a show that I had TiVo'd. It was one of those PBS fundraising week specials, the Roy Orbison and Friends - A Black and White night which was the special last night. I'll confess that I love Roy Orbison's music. But here I am at 11:15 p.m. watching Roy, Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Bonnie Raitt et al do their thing when I should be in bed because the alarm will be going off at 5:45 a.m. I hate the PBS fundraising specials, especially the obvious Baby Boomer-targeted ones. But I couldn't pull myself away from "Ooby Dooby" and the other songs.

I must be getting old when I start to get transfixed by the Boomer stuff on PBS. This is not a good sign for me.

I feel like I'm getting old. I have seen 11:15 only a few times in the last year. I just can't stay awake.

Also, here's my standard response to the "old" thing: As least you still have your hair.

I, too, cannot stand PBS fund raising.

I'm w/bishopman, I don't see 11:15 all that often! I DO like those PBS specials, depending on who's on- gotta love Fleetwood Mac.
