Let's give some general hints and see who can guess your age.


Hints for me:

1) Truman was president.

2) The first time I was in college, the country was still mourning the losses of RFK and MLK. (If you have to ask who they are, you're too young to play :D )

:rofl: Sweetie, I tell people I'm 62. I've been 62 for about 3 years now. I never get tired of them telling me how good I look and that they thought I was in my 40s. That's with all the weight and everything!

BTW. You guessed wrong.

Okay, for me, I was in diapers when JFK was shot. That ought to be easy.

As for you, RFK was shot in 1968, most college kids start at 18. 18 + 38 = 56. Are you 56?

for me: Music Hints:
Little Kid: I used to think it was "Mrs. Brown, You've Got an UGLY Daughter"
High School: I never want to hear "Taking Care Of Business" again.
College: Fleetwood Mac

Mare - 57?

Alinell - 45?

When I started school, the kindergarten ahead of me was the first class to go K - 12 desegregated in Mississippi.

A member of the Bush family was a candidate in the first presidential election in which I could vote. (I didn't vote for him!)

When doves cry by Prince was the number one song the year I graduated high school.

My son was born the morning the Space Shuttle Challenger blew up. I was 25 when I gave birth. How old am I now?

Hint #2, I was a senior in high school when Elvis Presley died.

There goes Gary trying to rack up more brownie points w/the ladies :lol:

for the record, I just got into the bracket for "advanced maternal age" and I was a freshman in high school during the Challenger disaster. Nixon was the prez when I was born... no cheating and looking at my profile :rolleyes:

Too danged young. I watched the OJ verdict back in the 90's while on my second marriage. LOL

For me, 3 months before my birth, Dr. King was arrested and Malcom X was shot to death. It wasn't a good year for black leaders.

When I was 1 week away from my 8th birthday my dad woke me up about 5am to watch John Glenn take off into space for the first orbit of the earth for us. On a little black and white television.

EEEWW Alabama football and Bear Bryant clues? I'm gonna be ill!

Reba I'm guessing you are 40 heading to 41 during 2007.

Parliament brought the Mothership down when I was in the 1st grade.

Kurtis Blow and the Sugar Hill gang were in steady rotation on my radio in the 7th grade and the World's Fair - Energy Expo was in my hometown during my 9th grade year.

In my senior year of high school we all had to have glitter and lace socks and one lace glove or super straight leg button fly levis WITH the Ralph Lauren shirt, socks and belt to match but you couldn't mix the two looks.

NWA introduced "Gangsta Rap" when I was in college.

So far lily is closest guesser....I'll be that age next month.

The day the Challenger exploded, I was in college, working at a record store. That's one of those day's I'll always remember. That an 9/11--I was on a business trip when that happened--it was 2 days after my 20th high school reunion.

Okay...my age...

I wore bell bottoms when I was little

The Partridge family kid I related to was Stacey

The Brady kid I related to was Cindy

and Sesame Street started when I was in kindergarten

at the same time...

The girls I work with at the salon weren't born yet (or were toddlers) when I became a hairdresser

and I wore parachute pants when they were in style for about 15 minutes

I loved Journey, Boston, Kansas, Styx and Queen when they were on the radio and on American Top 40 and weren't considered "old school".

I actually saw videos on MTV and watched the first non-video show on MTV, Remote Control all the time.

OOPS! ROBIN! I thought that said "10 years!" No wonder I missed questions on my tests! I remember also that it was a Monday night the day Lennon was killed, there was a group of about 10 of us guys, friends and family, and our wives that bowled on Monday nights for 15 years. "Imagine" that.
