You know you're old when you not only know how to use one of these but you own a couple and they have been in storage along with your drafting tools for 30+ years.

My Instamatic uses those 110 cartridges and the pop-up flash that uses the AG1 bulbs. Still got some.

When this is how you purchased shoes. No guessing what so ever. Always a perfect fit.

Clarks are one of the best. Though some would say pricey, comfort and wear are worth the extra money for sure.

Playing one of these with your grandpa at the local club. Haven't seen one in years. Question for those a little older then me....was this the spin off of duck pins bar style? I will say the one we played didn't have a puck, it was a small bowling ball. Man I cleaned grandpa out many times playing this one.

California animal slaughter fees: renown carbon emissions fees, high sells tax, over the top summer electric bills. Downtown business association fees.

My privately owned shoe shop charged me $90. Including all above as the wife paid.

Another old codger from the Korean Conflict yodeled out “You better get another Pair troop!”

“These days old dudes can’t get what Feels Good now... only later, try to come back and buy new, their gone...”

Nothing like a good pair of shoes.

someone mentions they need a new router, and that's the first thing that comes to your mind.

YKYO when

You remember a gallon of gas, loaf of bread or a pound of hamburger being about $.20. A new Chevy Impala was less than $3000. Your telephone was rotary dial and likely a party line. You remember when your family got its first color TV and you were the remote. If you wanted to watch "The Longest Day" you had to go to the theater. You had your rifle or shotgun in your car at school so you could head out hunting as soon as classes let out. The flag only had 48 stars when you were born. Your surprised you still remember all this!

When you tell stories about fighting in WWI.

If you tell stories about fighting in WWI, you're dead!

If you tell stories about fighting in WWII, you're very old.

If you tell stories about Nam you're getting there.

Yep. Shuffle Bowler. I have one stored up in my garage. May sell it someday. FWIW, I restore arcade stuff as a side hobby. I moved the bowler out a year or two back to make room for more pinballs.

I was never a pinball wizard, but this was my favorite. Which makes me old.

Willams Flash, had 2 of them over the years. System 3 CPU if memory servers. I've about 9 pins online and a couple in storage at the moment. Fun hobby, but Jeep stole all my time/money since last summer.
