What is the highest age of a Jelly, active on Fluther?

Asked by rebbel (29848points) 1 week ago

Obviously, if you don’t want to reveal your age, don’t.
Also, only tell your own age, not of another Jelly, of whom you know it.
I was listening to something about music media in America in the late forties and that made me wonder if there would be Jellies that lived through that era.
I didn’t, I’m 52.

Well, I would never ask a lady her age & would hope she didn’t mind me saying so, but I’d have to assume it was Yarnlady.

I’m 53 by the way.

We have a winner!

ucme's avatar

Who won & more intriguingly…how?

rebbel's avatar

So far, Lucille ‘won’, since she’s the oldest responder.
My plan is to announce a winner every time a Jelly tops her age.
No prizes are awarded though. ~

@lucillelucillelucille Ahh I see, old timer ;-}

I think the real winner here is lucy’s husband.

You may vomit any time you wish :D

65, kids, but I know of a few older than me.

Never thought I’d make it…

zenvelo's avatar

I am 64, but I know of older jellies, one I have met face to face has a couple years on me.

@lucillelucillelucille

“55”

Wow- you’re old enough to be my daughter! ;-o

Brian1946's avatar

I’ll be 73 later this year.

However, if Bill1939 isn’t yet 80, it’s reasonable to conclude that he will be later this year. He last posted about 3 weeks ago, so I’d consider him to be active.

IIRC, he attended the 1963 March on Washington, so major props to him if he did. But it might have been Pachy who Marched.

Thank you Brian…you’ve got me beat in a contest that I didn’t want to win!!!

Brian1946's avatar

You’re welcome and best of all- I’m NOT the winner!

<——————one of the tragedies of old age is facial chromatic inversion. ;-(

@Brian1946 Here’s my thoughts on your comment to me.
LOL :)

Brian1946's avatar

If I was also swayve & deboner, I could be another Joey Buttafucko. ;-p

Brian1946's avatar

@lucillelucillelucille

If your maiden name was Buttafuoco, would you propose to your husband ASAP, just so you could expedite the name change?

If his last name was Buttafuoco, what would you do?

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@Brian1946 – I’d never own up to it. LOL

ucme's avatar

I wonder what the youngest age of an active jelly is, responders must reply in crayon.

RedDeerGuy1's avatar

To muggles I am 42. To the rest I am over 20,000 years old.

KNOWITALL's avatar

Back end of my 40’s here, so neither. Dreading a colonoscopy and menopause lol.

SergeantQueen's avatar

@ucme I am 18, will be 19 in December. I know many people who are younger tend not to stay so I don’t know if I count lol

ucme's avatar

@SergeantQueen Of course you count youngling :D

Jonsblond's avatar

I’ll be 49 in January. I’m actually looking forward to turning 50 so all year I can yell “I’m 50 years old! I can kick, stretch and kick!” https://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/sally-omalleys-rockette-open-audition/2749879

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@Jonsblond -I am more than familiar with that skit.LOL!

Jonsblond's avatar

One of my favorites. :)

Brian1946's avatar

Mally Shonnan kicks air ass in that skit! ^

From my septuagenarian perspective, people in their 40’s are indistinguishable from high-schoolers. ;-p

@KNOWITALL there is nothing to fear from the colonoscopy. I refer you to this
expert testimony.

The menopause thing though, that’s a thrill ride that doesn’t end for years. I hit mine right when my daughter hit puberty. Satan grabbed cookies and koolaid to sit back and watch us like tv. I don’t know how my thermostat survived the abuse, her cold, me hot. The cupboards were a store of craving snacks and low fat microwave meals.

It’s the mammogram that you will hate. Your knees want to buckle but you don’t dare budge. Bring tissues, your eyes will water. It is hard to imagine the phrase aging gracefully with the right one pinched between glass plates.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@PattyMelt Did the mammogram twice already, I hate it but it’s doable. If I am ass up on a table, that’s where I get a little iffy, and I hate hospitals. I have to find a doc that will do it at the office…lol

Yeah, I’m already mercurial, I can’t imagine on menopause….haha!

Jonsblond's avatar

@lucille I was just watching an episode that had Sally and she pulled her pants up to reveal her camel toe. She called it her half-century lady hole. :D

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@Jonsblond -Was it that red jumpsuit?LOL

hmmmmmm's avatar

I’m 48, but I feel 90. Does that count?

rebbel's avatar

We have a winner!~

cookieman's avatar

Just turned 48. Let the mid-life crisis begin.

janbb's avatar

@cookieman Are you in the market for a cougar (well, pussycat really)?

KNOWITALL's avatar

@cookieman I think that’s a real thing, even for women…lol

Brian1946's avatar

@Brian1946

“IIRC, he attended the 1963 March on Washington, so major props to him if he did. But it might have been Pachy who Marched.”

I was half wrong- it was Pachy who Marched on Wash.

cookieman's avatar

@janbb & @KNOWITALL: It’s interesting that it’s called “mid-life” as, starting at 45, that’s optimistic at best. I’m fairly sure I won’t be around at 96.

janbb's avatar

@cookieman Someone I know had his midlife crisis at 60; I hope that doesn’t mean he’ll live to 120!

rebbel's avatar

Then again, midlife crises are not an official thing (in that they can’t be diagnosed, and they’re not covered in the DSM V, as far as I know).
I was told I had a midlife crisis, aged 31…
I was ‘just’ depressed and confused (in hindsight).
