You know you’re a geezer when you wake up (this morning, 11/14) to your baby girl turning 50, and retiring tomorrow after 30 years of Fire Service.   I feel old.

 

Steve, congrats to your daughter and thanks for her Fire Service work. She has plenty of time for another (fun) career!

Mr. Sage, we don't believe that a sign of being  old or geezerdom. It is a sign of success. Congrats to you both!

You know you're a geezer when you can remember your dad putting curb feelers on the family car.

Curb feelers what a cool addition to a car.

My dad was way cooler.  He had a speedo bug deflector in addition to curb feelers:
