Dave-
The alternative to getting/feeling oldER is REALLY LOUSY.
If you aren't getting older, you must be already taking the BIG DIRT NAP, which I have no interest in reaching anytime soon.

Well, for most of us here on this forum, whether we like it or not (and this is no ‘dig’ against anyone), we ARE ‘old’.

In a few days, I’ll be same age my father’s dad was in 1974. As a 12 year old kid in 1974, there is NO WAY I would have thought anything about my grandfather was ‘young’, and he was a VERY active, hard-working man and would remain so for nearly two decades more. But I did NOT think of him as young; geez, I did not think of my Dad as ‘young’ at that point and he was only 37 then!

Admittedly, some of what I just said is a common perspective from children; if you are older than about 28 or 29, then from a child’s perspective you look old. BUT, by the time one gets into their latter 50s — as I suspect many of us here are — then yes, we are ‘old’. Again, no dig against anyone here; and I don’t care about the comments “Well, I *feel* like a kid inside!”. Well, ok, great...BUT, we are still ‘old’.

Sorry.

Earl

Okay, so I’m old ... But I am still younger than most of my X-acto knives so I’ve got that going for me

I was able to get a line on a 1952 Xacto catalog. Once it arrives, I’ll scan and and if acceptable to him, I’ll forward to Scott for posting on the forum.

It's 'on the way' to me; I hopefully will have it around the end of this week. Will scan after receipt and get to Scott to post, maybe by mid next week; sooner if I can.
