It just didn't seem real until I looked at the spread of age groups and realised I was in the middle!

Middle age hey, time to start living it up!!!

Just turned 40.  The wife is still in her 30's.  Not much grey hair yet, but am starting to feel nomad urges.... :-)

I don't care what age group I am in as long as I don't have to act my age.

However, that said, I like the sound of "mature and wise".

Speaking from somewhere in between, it could be said that every old fart was once a young moron in someone's eyes. And to every young moron, this is what you've got to look forward too:-)

I was a young moron once - did absolutely stupid things in cars during the 1960s - but didn't crash one. Now 68 and drive quite carefully although not all the time off road. Try to understand the new breed of young morons and not judging them - it was me then - them now.

I chose 30-40 because I'm 35, however he's almost 43 and I must admit I have more than a few grey hairs apprearing already. Kids are 10 and 12 pretty much, but the camper we brought is the one that we'll take into retirement :)
