On another note, it'll be 4 years that I've not smoked cigarettes (which was one of my dumber "adult" decisions).
I honestly figured most of you guys were around my age 45. I guess that make me the youngster off the bunch... Lol

Re: Club40+

Quite a few older guys rolling around in XB's. Guess I'm not the odd man out, even though it often feels like it. Young girls always stare at my car and then look away when they see who's behind the wheel, lol. Going to be 47 next month.

Re: Club40+

Hot damn, Dion and Jeff! You guys are still around and driving xBs? I gave my xB to my daughter in 2016 to get her through her divorce. Been driving a Prius since (averaging 59.84 mpg over 15,000 miles).
I just had a birthday 2 days ago - turned 73. That probably makes me the oldest guy here.

my daughter's used to always want me to take them cruising down on ocean Blvd which is always bumper to bumper. I was routinely spotted cruising the Blvd in myrtle beach while playing little mermaid on 17 screens... Lol.

Ahh, Brother Darrell! Does my heart good for you to honor us with your presence.

Happy belated birthday. 3 cheers for the oldest (and wisest) OG there is. Speaking of green vehicles, I'm dreaming of getting VW's electric van once it's out, 2020 I believe.

Re: Club40+

Great to hear from you, brothers Jeff and Dion. I keep on trucking. I'm a prostate cancer survivor going on 15 years now. Was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease and Type II Diabetes in 2010. I turned the diabetes back by losing weight and improving my diet. After five years, my Dr. said I am pre-diabetic again. On the Parkinson's, my neurologist said i'm 95th percentile. Out of 20 PD sufferers, I'm doing better than 19 of them! My astronomy observing buddy is also a neurologist, and he said something similar. He said I'm doing as well walking as any 7 year PD patient he's ever seen. I'll take those findings any day, compared to the alternatives!

Darrell, Glad that you are doing well with all that's going on !! I was found in Oct on 2016 to have lymphoma cancer stage 3. Went through chemo for 6 weeks then a stem cell transplant and have survived that. I am now retired, a year early but still living the dream 1 day at a time !!

Oh yea...... Getting old does suck but I am not going anywhere soon !!!! LOL

What Jeff said. I'm in Solano County in the Vallejo/Fairfield area, Rob. I miss my xB, but my daughter is driving it daily. It was the most fun car I ever owned.

Life goes on. Got a hot date with the wife to pull weeds tomorrow
