I'm actually old enough to have owned 16-2/3 rpm vinyl.  8;)

Anyone else remember them? Play'em at 78 and you could *really* make
those hamsters squeal.

Perhaps you are the only one here old enough NOT to remember:-)

Hmnnn...

I've noticed a regrettable tendency recently to attack, abuse, mock,
and otherwise denigrate hamsters in this forum... please be informed
that hamsters are mild, playful, incredibly handsome, and make
excellent pets when fed correctly and supplied with decent imported
beer.

Or at least still old but willing to admit it  :O)  I threw the Hamster in
to enliven the joint a little.  Oh, now that I said joint that reminds me
I better rest a bit...

Yes, I miss Donald. The last of the true hippies...

Incidentally, talking of joints - my neighbour's kids smoke up
frequently and often leave half-smoked blunts lying around. A few days
ago, one of their tiny dogs was taken ill, couldn't stand up, peed
himself, and seemed to almost stop breathing. When they rushed him to
the vet, the vet calmly told them he'd eaten a leftover roach and
would recover on his own in a few hours. He said he got these cases
frequently.

Wonder what *** would do to a hamster?

After a few years on the beer, they're also incredibly tasty. (It takes
about eight hours of long, slow braising to get the residual crustiness
out.)

I turned 66 in July.  Hopefully I can retire this fall some time.

I had to undergo a whole battery of cardiac stress tests, etc.
yesterday at the CORCare clinic.

They concluded I'm still alive.

I may even get to be 66 if I'm lucky...  :-)

I don't smoke anything, even cigars or cigarettes - never have, never
will...

Someone once asked me if I smoked after sex. I said, "I don't know -
I've never looked...".

You should be so lucky.  I'll tell you that at 66 your stroke is shot and you are lucky to run 2 balls in a row.  Even if you do you probably can't see well  enough to see them drop in the pocket.

66 isn't old... I regularly get beaten at golf by an 85 year old - he
shot an 83 last weekend. My best so far (I'm a beginner) is 92. I'm
working on beating 90...

Incidentally he hustles all the old guys playing snooker at the Legion
and usually beats me at pool as well.
