Lagomorphs: menace or underutilized resource?


« Reply #15 on: May 06, 2008, 01:32:28 PM »

Well I'm a fine vintage 1963 so I'm a tail end baby boomer or a tweener depending on your reference. I don't think old, feel old, act old but I'm sure if you're 20 right now I'm old. I know that when I was in my early 20's I thought those that were in their late 30's and beyond were old.

Yeah, I find that the older I get, the younger old people seem. In my head, I'm still in my twenties for the most part. I know my body says otherwise, but why should I listen to some stupid meat popsicle? And yet, I can't relate to the general twenty-something generation. Granted, I couldn't relate to them when I was that age, either, but I notice it more now.

Talking to my mother (she's 82), I asked her if she felt old. She said she still thinks of herself as a young woman, and she can't really get her mind around the concept of "old." She still parks farther out wherever she goes to let the "old people" have the closer spots. She teaches the older ladies' Sunday School class but feels inadequate because she's one of the younger ladies in the class (our church has two ladies that are 100 years old).

I was born in 1967 so I don't know what that makes me...

Well, if you come to America Trevor you won't need underpants. We all secretly don't wear them. This has been the key to our nations success. We're just like France we don't wear underpants. 

A friend told me yesterday he had to go to a big fancy wedding this past weekend and he wore underpants for the first time in years. He said it was actually quite nice and he may start wearing underpants on a regular basis!

Yea, I'm 43 and feel it sometimes, but I still like to be goofy like a kid. When talking to to 20 somethings I usually find a disconnect as far as life experiences go and find myself being a kind of mentor adopting a role that awakens and hopefully guides young(er) people.

I'm in fair physical health, but am always trying to get in shape. I have a specific weight and tone that I'm trying to get back into since my surgery last October. Last Summer I was in my ideal condition. I'm not far from getting back, but I'm not doing any heavy lifting with free weights till this fall. Don't want to bulk up eithier, but rather to be nicely tone and free of any nagging injuries of the past. It's seems that every time I'm on the right track something comes along and bumps me off course.   Smile

It's been a rough 2 years for me, but I'm grateful for all the insight that suffering provides.

I was up on a 2 story roof today with a 12/12 pitch (that's 45 degrees for you non-builder types in other words steep for a roof) Well, when I was 20 I thought if I fall I'll land hit and roll and all will be well, I'll dust myself off and get back up there. Now that I'm 44 I think if I fall I'm going to break something or die and have to call 911.  As a rule I don't do steep roofs anymore for no other reason than gravity, anything over a 6/12 pitch I tell them to call someone younger (and dumber). Heights don't bother me, falling doesn't bother me ... it's the landing that bothers me. I don't bounce as well anymore.

Well back to the roof I ran by the shop here to get a safety (repelling) harness and rope ... something I would have never used when I was 20 on a roof ... those things are for pansies I'd said ... well paint me pink and call me a pansy at least I know I'll be safe and unhurt tonight. Amazing how age will change your outlook on things and attitude.

I have absolutely no idea, Derf..... hang on, my neighbor hangs his washing quite close to the wall that separates our properties. So, if I can can avoid getting zapped  hot by the electric fence thingummyjiggy, I can steal his underpants and use them.

Then I'll tell him you told me to do it.  TeddyR

Well, I'm not sure this will help your morning underwear dilemma Trevor, but last month I bought two triple packs of size "32" Hanes underwear because they had a sale on underwear at a local department store. Took them home and put them in a drawer. A month later I went to open one of the packets only to find they were size "42" ! ! ! Fortunately the other pack was size "32". In my underwear haste I must of accidentally picked up a packet of the wrong size.

My problem is that although they all have retained their freshness after a month in the drawer I'm stuck with 3 pairs of "42's" and without a receipt. Without a receipt there is absolutely no chance of returning them unless I leave them at the entrance of the store without getting a refund.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
