Herb At 76: ‘Dude, Yer Old’

Herb Huseland, via Facebook: Today is my 76th birthday. With my lifestyle, I have no idea why I lasted this long and hopefully longer, but hey, I'll take it as better than dying young. As I've aged, I don't have much flexibility, I was discharged from the Air Force at 138 lbs. Now I'm over 200. But oh boy, what a ride. Now at this late date, I'm venturing into politics, running for Precinct Committeeman of the 4th. Time to take the Republican Party back from the out of state extremists and return the party back to the people. Gee though, I wish I had some training or warning about getting old. Instead of that whack up side the head. Dude, yer old.

Question: What age do you consider to be the beginning of old age?
