I just thought of this. I used to walk down to the store and buy my grandparents cigarettes when I was a kid. 8 or 9 years old

Yeah, I think it does show your age some. :poke:

 

That's ok, I often FEEL every day of it! I remember buying ditch-blasting explosves and blasting caps when I was 15, I drove the bosses tractor to Southern States to get it. Now my son can't even buy ammo for his own .22!

L.C.D.  lowest common denominator.

 

 

     Example : certain entities want us to believe that 50 mpg is attainable for the effort and it is .  The wise know that fuel taxes would

 

     have to double should that happen .

Does it show my age that I remember this?

I think I am old enough to remember this.The reason it came to mind was that I remembered a news special about dynamite after the Oklahoma city bombing "it may have been before that".There people going undercover and buying dynamite form hardware stores and there were still quite a few places selling dynamite.

Ryan I think most of use feel your pain as we have been there too. In the state of New Jersey, you can legally buy a .22 caliber rifle at the age of 18 with a firearms ID, but you can not buy the .22 ammo to shoot out of it until you are 21 because some handguns shoot .22 ammo... Keep in mind I turned 21 i April so

i know how you feel haha. Don't be too upset about it and want to older, because life is fast you might not realize it now, but I graduate college in the spring, and it was just a blurr. Enjoy being young, because before you know it... You will be saying this to someone else.
