    I've gotten to the "revised list for age 42".....pretty much fits my hubby to a "t"! Except he doesn't shave.....because I don't want him to, I love his beard and mustache!

    I'm definitely with the 40's crowd!

    I used to live in Florida (30's crowd back then) and an acquaintence who originated from Kentucky (hence a lovely southern accent) said this.

    "I used to dream of a man with lots of money and a nice car. Now I would be happy to find a man with a job and a drivers license."

    I have forgotten more than I remember in this life, but I'll never forget that one!
