Baseball's postseason! Will the Indians end professional sport's longest drought? Will the Astros or Nats finally win their first championship? And what about baseball's winningest team--the Dodgers? And don't forget about the Cubs!

Yup, it's the big 6-0. To be honest, I feel a lot better than I thought I would 20 or 30 years ago. A few more aches and pains, sure, but not too many, and it isn't like I was a great physical specimen to begin with. My mind isn't quite as quick as it used to be, but it's still pretty sharp, good enough to come up with a quick rejoinder or to win my share of games against my younger opponents. Health is still good and I'm still pretty chipper. On the whole, I still feel like I'm in my prime, even if my birth certificate says that's a lie.

I really think there may some truth to "60 is the new 50". Maybe it was because I was a kid, but when I was growing up, the 60-somethings just seemed slower and less vibrant than folks of a comparable age are today. Advances in medicine have surely helped, as have the fact that fewer people smoke today (or at least, they kicked the habit earlier). But I also wonder if attitude plays a big role; we no longer feel as if 65 is the end of one's useful existence. You can still be active and have lots of fun and not live exclusively for your grandkids.

Hey, I like my job, I love my hobby, I adore my wife, and we have the best dog evar. As long as my health remains good and my brain doesn't turn to mush, I can see enjoying the hell out of my next 20 years, and maybe more.

Just an optimistic message from your latest sexagenarian. You may now return to your series of copycat posts.

Technically, your thread title infers that you are now 3C old.
Congrats!

Sexagenarian. Not as much actual sex in sexagenarian as it sounds like there should be. I think that's when one starts to think about sex more with nostalgia and less with anticipation.

He's looking real sharp in his 1940's fedora. He's got nerves of steel, an iron will, and several other metal-themed attributes. His fur is water tight and he's always up for a fight.

He's a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action. He's a furry little flat-foot who'll never flinch from a fray. He's got more than just mad skills, he's got a beaver tail and a bill.

When I read the thread title, I assumed it was someone who just turned 16 years old.
