signs that you might be getting old

This evening, the three of us went to catch a set of music from one of Brian's former co-workers, Jenny Drummey. The show was at the Bottle Works. Jenny has been a Johnstown staple for quite a number of years now. The music was all original and Brian described it as folk-rock. Jenny sang and played guitar (she's an incredible singer); there was another guitarist who switched between acoustic and electric guitar; and a drummer.

OK. Now for the old part. The ironic thing is that the Bottle Work's parking lot is adjacent to The Ace's Lounge, which we used to frequent in our younger days. So, this is how you can tell you are getting old...you go to a show at 7:30pm on a Friday night, with your 6-year-old kid, the show's an hour and 15 minutes long, and they're serving cookies and coffee as the food and drink. And you're home by 9:30 so you can play a game of Yahtzee and a few games of Boggle before you retire for the evening. I'm not complaining, I'm just saying...
