    I guess getting older is finially paying off. Ordered our lifetime Hunting & Fishing license today. The total cost for DH & I only $71. We have been paying $35 each for a one year license.

    How to know...

    I thought that I might be getting old when I was invited to join the AARP...:confused:

    I knew I was getting old when I accepted their invitation and joined...:(

    Then the teenage boys started calling me "Sir", and the teenage girls started holding the door for me, I knew that I was just over the top of the hill and starting the downward slide! :eek:

    But when I started getting the senior discounts without asking for them, I knew that I should look for a suitable bucket for future kicking! :cry::D

    I have never been asked to show my fishing licence - I keep it nice-n-dry in a little zip-lock wallet just in case someone ever decided to check on it ..

    If I remember right, my licence last year cost me $14 ...

    My limited fishing license is $15 all inclusive is $28-I never get out on the big lakes anymore so I don't need the big salmon/trout sticker. But I only have to add that sticker if I get the chance to go out on the big lake.
    And I have been asked for my license a few times in my life and they checked the stringer and buckets too.
    But I gotten the Sr. discount in restaurants and stores when I am with my mother-I don't color my hair and it is a glorious white/silver/light auburn and folks just assume I am my mothers younger sister.. she shows her discount card and they assume I am just a bit younger than her and bingo! I get the discount. I figure that if they aren't gonna ask then their loss.

    I've had 'premature grey' hair since I was 16 :lolsmash: now it's a bit salt & peppered, I walk with a cane... by the time I'm 30 it might all be silver! :eek:

    yes, I take advantage of discount tickets at the movies too :p
