    you are starting to get old when your mind says "no problem" but your body says "wait a minute..."

    You know you're old when the cop who caught you doing a burnout (Datsun 240Z with a small block Chev in it) says, "Come on, Gramps, grow up!" and drives away shaking his head.

    Or when the E-3 kid next to you at the USAF qualification range for the last time after 34 years in the Air Force Active and Reserve sees your target and says, "Wow, that's scary! How come you shoot so well when you're that old?". Guess who got to be the latrine queen that weekend.

    Sooo, the 21-year young flight instructor at a local airport calls The Olde Head - Moi - for advice as how to deal with an older student he has.

    Seems this old guy doesn't respect him, doesn't listen to him, won't do what he's s'posed to do in the airplane.

    So I sez things like "teach responsibility," mention that YOU hold a pilot certificate and he doesn't, that he can't fly solo until *you* say he can, look for common ground other than his daughter, 'splain the lesson plan, etc.

    The young instructor sez he's tried some of that and more, so far not so much luck.

    So I asks him, "How old's this student."

    In a deep and serious voice he sez "Twenty-three."

    ARRRRRRGH! :banghead:

    It's been about 15 years, but a buddy of mine retired from the Reno NV PD with 13 years of service, and told me that some of the FTO's were too young to shave.... Seems they were grabbing 'em off the street as soon as they figured out which end of the Patrol Unit was the front....

    I was that young once.... What surprises me is that my dad actually did know something :), and that I wish I knew now what I thought I knew then.... Not to mention trying to keep track of a 24 year old daughter.

    Regards,

    Remembering the days when the whole country was more gun friendly and dumb gun laws were few if any.


    .....no one here is that old. Those guys are all dead.
