Canal Canal on the water, Do I look old?

As I "gracefully"  age, I look in the mirror and think "do I look old"?

This past  weekend I felt like the mirror answered me. We went with friends  to Buffalo's canal side which has evolved over the last few years to a bustling port full of beauty and activities to see and do. 

One of the activities was a Ferry boat ride across the water to view the renovated light house.  It was a small Ferry with standing room and bench seats as well.

As we approached the seats there were a few small areas left to sit on--a woman on the bench that I would guess to be in her late 40's,  asked us if we needed a seat as she would offer her seat and she would stand.   If ever I felt old, that was the time..no mirror needed this time...just harsh reality, and I thought to myself "do I look that old?"

Well the 60's are good for some things--discounts at many places, extra courtesy given, and open seating.Wonder what the 70's will bring?
