In the not-too-distant past, it used to cost me $55 round trip when I towed my dual-axle enclosed race car hauler down to Lawn Guyland for events. Many drivers from up here wouldn't even attend events down there because of the crazy tolls for a $2.00 plastic trophy...even those without trailers.

I crossed the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel last year, and remember that the $14 toll for 23 miles of bridge/tunnel seemed like the travel bargain of the century! For being on secondary roads through the DelMarVA, that whole detour was a pleasant drive that I definitely would do again.....

You know you're old when...thinking back to 1973, the first two credit cards your store accepted were Master Charge and Bank Americard...and neither one would approve you for one.

You know you're old...when remembering the time there were 10% CD's, new car loans were 15%, and a 13.5% 20 year mortgage was considered "good".

Graduated from High School 43 years ago today. I didn't go to the ceremony because I had the measles, despite having been innoculated.

Mine was in 1974, and I remember it like it was yesterday. If I could only remember what I did yesterday.

You may laugh, but when you get to be my age, it's serious shit;
Just as a woman's boobs sag, so will your testicles....
Mine damn near touch the water when I sit on the "pot" anymore.
Thinking of getting a scrotum tuck for my 62nd birthday in July.
With the skin they remove, I'll probably make a set of slippers for the wife
or I might wrap my steering wheel with it....

I'm 31 and had to call the cops (twice) for a noise complaint last Thursday night for a HS graduation party directly behind me, where it was obvious no parents weren't home.

It wouldn't have been a big deal if it was on a Thursday and my backyard wasn't only 20' wide. They were going strong for 6 hours and cops didn't show up till 1.5hr after I called. Wife and I had to work the next day, and got very little sleep.
