Seriously, a need for that forum would need to be demonstrated - and besides, we can post in all forums other than the Young Adult forum...discussing our aches & pains, prescriptions, metamucil (I'm not quite there yet!), 45's, bell bottoms, disco balls - all the fun things of our youth.:)

Well the thing is I would bet the young adults can post their post nearly anywhere on the board too! But they get this forum just for them...which I don't understand actually....:hmm: I will look tomorrow and see why they need this form just for them so I can figure out why us 'older' members need a form just for us too...;) (maybe we need larger print!..I know I had to go get reading glasses just to read this board!!!! :eek:)

Zzz.. (uhgh?) …Oh, Yes. I remember now.
When I was a boy I lived near the railroad tracks. We were always told not to play around the trains, but I wasn’t scared.
One day I decided to run away. I was mad at my folks, but not really all that mad. Still, I wanted to be selfish and the best thing I could think of was to run away. It turned out that my friend, Peter was also mad at his folks, so we decided to run away together.

We got together some sandwiches and went down to a sitting freight train. Sometimes they would park a train there on one of the tracks, while they did some work on the tracks elsewhere.
Anyway, we went down and climbed onto one of the coal cars. The coal car had a platform on either end of the car, because the hopper was larger at the top and smaller at the bottom.

We sat there waiting for the train to start moving – taking us away from our “mean” parents and on toward adventure. We waited and waited.
Finally, Peter ate one of his sandwiches and I eyed mine, but I wanted to save them for when I got really hungry. So we waited some more.

Peter, was never one for sitting still too often, so he decided to go back home. The metal platform of the coal car was getting uncomfortable and it was getting dark. I sat there for another half hour and gave up on the train moving any time soon. So I gave up and went home – thinking of how much trouble I had avoided by not ending up in Albany and having to call my folks to come and get me.

Now shoo. Let me git some rest! <grumble grumble>

Ok here is the purpose of the young adult forum posted by MightyMutt


Young Adults Forum Guidelines
Just a few key things to consider before posting in this forum...

1. This forum is only for those who are 25 years old or younger. Anyone who is 26 or older, well you're not a young adult anymore. So you "old-timers," please don't post here, or your post will be deleted without notice.

2. The purpose of this forum is to provide a safe place for peers to discuss the Christian faith, especially in light of ever-changing young adult culture. The word of God is eternal and unchanging, but as culture changes sometimes practical application needs to be re-examined.

3. This is not a "singles forum." I don't think we need to add anything to that.

Aside from all that, the normal general Bibleforums rules apply here.

Ok I can understand that...they do have alot to deal with!

But us older adults have to deal with it too...only in different ways...first we have to deal with OUR kids dealing with this...lol...(yes that could fit under the family forum) and our grandchildren who have to deal with the every changing world...plus we have too try to keep up! And for us it can be harder because we tend to be more set in our ways. :rolleyes: which comes with age. For instance many older adults were raised to always dress up for church and struggle with the church changing and relaxing more to allow for casual dress to attach more young adults. For some this is extremely difficult...others not so much. Our generation also has more life experiences and while the young adult are talking about going through some things in this world for the first time...we have already been through it.

On top of having to try to keep up with an ever changing world we also are dealing with more ...health issues as we age. Like I am convinced my mind is still very young! But my body simply doesn't agree! The things I want to do ...or try to do my body refuses to do...or it causes my body alot of pain when I try to do what my young mind wants! Its very frustrating!! I also have seen older adults get very depress simply because they can no longer do what they used to do...dealing with aging itself, can be quite a struggle. This is not something the young adults are dealing with...yet.

There are things I would like to talk about in regards to getting older...and trying to keep up with life and the struggle, frustration and yes depression it brings on...having to accept the fact I am getting older...(something I was sure would never happen to me! :rolleyes:) But I don't bring it up because I don't feel it fits in any forum and I really don't want to post about it in the counseling forum...its not an individual problem...but something we all have to deal with.

More and more I can relate to this passage:

2 Corinthians 5
New Bodies
1 For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands. 2 We grow weary in our present bodies, and we long to put on our heavenly bodies like new clothing. 3 For we will put on heavenly bodies; we will not be spirits without bodies. 4 While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh, but it’s not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us. Rather, we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life. 5 God himself has prepared us for this, and as a guarantee he has given us his Holy Spirit

Anyway that is my thoughts on this...so far...I am sure I will remember some more later! (something else we deal with...forgetting things alot...:rolleyes:) Though I claim I have always been forgetful! :lol:

God bless

Oct 20th 2008, 09:43 AM
Are you old enough to remember 78s?

Yes; we had a record player that my Dad built from scratch that would play all size records, including his beloved Jerry Lee Lewis. We also had one of those huge reel-to-reel vertical tape players (I remember Burl Ives singing 'Ugly Duckling'), and we had silent cinefilm of Laurel and Hardy, 1930s cartoons like Jack and the Beanstalk and Tom and Jerry, and faded family holidays from the 1950s; we had a rolled pull-up screen that went on a stand. Mum still has them in the loft.

My Dad drove the same beloved Austin A60 Cambridge from the early 60s until the late 80s (replacing his Ford Seven):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Austin_Cambridge

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_7W

Early holidays for me were a boarding-house in North Wales, run by a spinster called Miss Jones; Mum and Dad went there for 20 years every year, and it smelled of boiled cabbage. We used to set off at 4am and stop at 7am by the side of the motorway to cook bacon and eggs over a camping stove. It was the only time we had breakfast cereal in those little individual variety multi-packs. We never ate macaroni and rice except as sweet milk puddings, never had mayonnaise (only salad cream - mayo was 'foreign'). Even ketchup was a rarity. Didn't even know what curry and pizza were - unless it was shepherds pie or steak and kidney pudding or Friday night fish and chips, every dinner was plain meat, boiled potatoes and veg, and the only seasoning in the house was table salt and ground white pepper.

McDonalds didn't exist in the UK in those days until the mid 70s - it was table-service Wimpy Bars only. It was Charles and Di's wedding in 1981 when we first ate savoury pasta - I made spaghetti bolognaise, and it was the first time we all ate mixed herbs, bought a dried packet and measured it out very carefully. A salad was a leaf of lettuce, a few slices of cucumber, and a quartered tomato, with a wedge of cheese and Heinz salad cream - pickled onions on special occasions. Never had French bread - we bought plain white loaves from the milkman who also sold the incredibly exotic orange juice in glass bottles (but we didn't have that because it was 'special' and too posh for us - Dad got an orange one Christmas during WW2 and held them in high regard ever after). He made orange marmalade and wine with stuff he grew on the allotment.

Duvets were viewed with suspicion as foreign; 'proper' beds were made with sheets and blankets and candlewick bedspreads. We only drank tea, never coffee unless it was liquid Camp coffee made entirely with hot milk.

My Mum drove an Austin A30 bubble-car until the late Eighties, and still has an olive-green kitchen and a light blue tile and orange cork bathroom. I proudly have Axminster-type red patterned carpet, and a shelf-full of my and hubby's singles and LPs. She still can't work the video player she bought in 1982 though.

Yay - that's the one. It had no seat belts and these bar indicators that flipped out on the side. Mum sold it to a local hippy and we used to see him beetling around in it for a couple of years, but I expect it's scrap metal now. I loved that car - never went above 30mph and was like a Flintstone car. They don't make 'em like that anymore.

Since you said "extended play", you qualify. ;)

According to ACCM (post#72), 16s played on gramophones.

Our old library style turntable played 'em too, and my folks had a couple of 16s at the time.

You know you're getting old when:

your ideal night out is to play "Bingo".

you get complaints from your neighbors that your TV is too loud.

you have a party and the neighbors don't even realize it.

you bend over to tie your shoe then look for something else to do while you're down there.

your new easy chair has more options than your car.

your little black book only contains names ending in M.D.

you have a party and the neighbors don't even realize it.

you bend over to tie your shoe then look for something else to do while you're down there.

your new easy chair has more options than your car.

your little black book only contains names ending in M.D.

you go from hoping for a BMW to hoping for a BM.

LOL I liked this on the best: You bend over to tie your shoe then look for something else to do while you're down there.

I can identify. :thumbsup:

btw do all old people overuse smileys?

Do you realize this message started in 2008 and it's still going?

Maybe there could be a forum for old people, young people, ugly people, smart people, fat people. The list could be endless. :hmm:

I do like me some smileys.

Perhaps one for fat kids, skinny kids, kids who climb on rocks, tough kids, wimpy kids and even those with chicken pox?

It seems like no matter what your age is, there is someone younger than you who thinks you are old and someone older than you who thinks you are still young. ;)

My mom always says you should surround yourself with people older than yourself if you want to feel younger :).

Hey, does anybody here remember wooden Tinkertoys? I looked it up on Amazon the other day and nearly fell off my chair when I saw the price. They mostly make it out of plastic nowadays.

Another big favorite when we were kids were board games (Ludo, Snakes and Ladders etc.). Books. We used to read a lot. Swim in the dam, climb mountains and excavate caves.

It was fun!

Haha, this whole forum feels like the older section to me. :P

But that's one of the main reasons why I come back, actually. I like getting perspectives from people outside of my own social network and real-life encounters.
