    I am a middle child of 8, there has always been a joke "how old is Val?" And, because I am older than 50 I've carried this question on to boyfriends, doctors, getting a senior discount at the movies, etc. I really don't know how old I am. I really tell my doctor that, and I really had a boyfriend for 4 years who thought I was 5 years younger than him.....

    I watched Portlandia on Netflix the other night. Fred had this same problem. His girlfriend didn't know and his mom wouldn't say, and his doctor kept saying "it's just math - you were born in .....". But they never said it! Just like my life - thank you!

    My mom used to yell out "well you were born when we got the big RCA TV....it must have been 1959 because the shakers were a bonus." recently she gave me the RCA S&P shakers, maybe because she didn't really remember how old I was? Thanks Mom! What is age anyway, just a number right?

      Thanks Kevin - same age as Barbie but haven't aged as well.

      Thanks Kyra - oh, yes, young-at-heart-Mary trapped in a middle aged un-Barbie like body. LOL

      Very nice condition there Val.
      Depends on how well you can see them in the morning? :0)
      It's what's on the inside that counts in human years anyway!! And you are looking very good. :)
    15. valentino97 valentino97, 5 years ago
      Thanks OneGoodFind! Your comments made me feel good, yes the inside counts most.

      Nipper !!!! This totally reminded me of the beginning of the Cyndi Lauper "Time after Time" video . She's holding a big Nipper. I'm a fan.
    17. valentino97 valentino97, 5 years ago
      Thank you Dragon! She is holding the Nipper in that video. :-)

      Mary I "loved" your doggie shakers earlier but didn't get around to reading your description which to me is just hysterical, I know so well how the family can mess with your age, for example, I'm born a couple wks before the end of the year, so I'm always made a full year older by everyone. My maternal grandma had two birth certificates in both the US and Italy, one made her a full year older. Yes, age really is just a number!
    20. valentino97 valentino97, 3 years ago
      Hi Jenni - That's not fair that your family automatically thinks you're older. LOL I think (BUT, I cannot confirm) that my big 60 is next year....yet I think I turned 56 Oct. 27, LOL. I didn't buy a present because I'm planning a road trip next week and expect to find a few treasures. XOXO.

      Phil - thank you for your comment .....geez, it was 6 months ago? LOL
    21. Newfld Newfld, 3 years ago
      We'll just keep confusing everyone about our ages, works for me! :) Have a fantastic road trip Mary, enjoy yourself

      Thanks T for the Nipper info. He was such a great mascot, glad that he was buried with honors.

      Thanks friends for your loves over the years.
