Average age / Age of individual FReepers
Freerepublic.com | 3/24/12 | Blue Highway

Posted on 03/24/2012 1:53:59 PM PDT by Blue Highway

Hey all just wanted to start a thread to get some perspective on the ages of us here. I know we are a diverse group, but just wonder if the majority is 40 and up and wondering if there is a growing younger crowd signing up here. If it's ok to post this here maybe we can start a FReeper log of:

Name - Age - Sex

I'd understand if people might not want to post this info so if it is a good idea feel free to post.

180+. It gets hard to remember once you get past 150.

I still enjoy skydiving and the occasional marathon.

I planned for my future.

Oh, and if I knew I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself when I was a young’un.

The second time I was stationed in Korea, I was assigned to the 2nd Infantry Division (hence my screen name) at the G-2’s DTOC Support Element, a Top Secret Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) with about 8-10 other personnel. Our mail was brought to us from another camp and placed in a holder on the wall. One day, I spied a return address of RR#1, Kelley, Iowa (population at that time about 105) and commenced to tear the letter open. It wasn’t for me. One of our warrant officers had a sister who lived in the same tiny burg that I did!!

No no James, never give in to grey hair. It makes you feel older than you are. There are all sorts of hair colors that are easy. I think that Grecian Formula is designed just for men. Just don’t use black. It is too phony looking. Go sandy color and nobody notices that it’s color. Just advice from one who will never again let the white show through. I did that one time and it gave me apoplexy and nightmares until I could get to Wally World for color.

Two weeks shy of 27. I was 16 when I registered, hence the now long outdated name.

Half a century and getting garbage from AARP.

Heard an ad. on Rush yesterday for "Generation America". It is a more right wing organization for folks over 50.

I was just wanting to see some answers to refute the MSM and leftists that most conservatives are older white males.

What do you think? Why don't you just ask if anyone remembers listening to Johnny Dollar on radio? Or ask what it was like to see Sputnik pass over the night sky?

You could ask individuals where they were when President Kennedy was killed?

You might ask each person how many Tom Swift Jr. books they read in their youth. "Tom Swift and His Megascope Space Prober" was my most memorable title.

Remember - ll,ss.

Female. Old enough to be married for 53 years, and have 5 great-grandchildren. Found FreeRepublic in 1998 and lurked until I registered on 1-6-2000.

I love Neil Diamond. Got to see him at the Circle Star Theater in Redwood City Calif. He said he knew the policy was NO picture taking but you can do it, I don't care. What a fantastic performer. Do you play all those guitars?

Yes, I was referring to the book “Blue Highways”. funny, I remember the book but not the author. I read so many books that only a few of them stand out. I’m pretty much a speed reader and addicted to the printed word.
