MORE ON GETTING OLD.....

I was watching tv today and saw 2 commercials within just a few minutes of each other that were pretty depressing.  The first commercial was The Six-Million-Dollar Man, Lee Majors, starring in a commercial about hearing aids.  Hearing aids!  And even though you could tell he had makeup on that made his face look pretty good, you could see the wrinkly, saggy skin under his chin and on his neck.  This was a little hard to take - The Six-Million-Dollar Man is OLD!!!

If that wasn't bad enough, a few minutes later another commercial came on starring The Fonz, Henry Winkler.  He was in a commercial for a retirement plan involving your mortgage!  I have to admit that The Fonz looked a lot better than Lee Majors, but a RETIREMENT PLAN??? 

It's bad enough having to look in the mirror everyday, without turning on the television and seeing these once hunky men getting ready to use a walker!  Aaaauuuugggghhhhh!
