Good find, JAP69.

Looks like since that poll was five years ago every one who voted in it has moved up one age bracket!

Scared

we must keep in mind that 50 is the new 28, LOL

      When I go to play my tickets, at 49 years old I am by far the youngest person there.

      I am 66 years old and play Pick 3 and Pick 4 FOR FUN. It is one of the few things left in my life that I truly enjoy.

      The other reason I believe most of us old folks play is HOPE.

      Nobody needs us or wants to be around us anymore, and

      like the Pink Floyd song says, "No one cares if you live or die."

      So, just the hope of winning some cash now and then,

      and the thrill of an occasional hit gives US HOPE. 

      To all cigarette smokers and beer drinkers that look disdainfully

      at me when I purchase my tickets, I normally look at them and say,

      "At least I get some money back now and then.

      When was the last time you got any money back from your cigarettes or beer?"

        That sounds a little odd coming from the ranking member of "The Over The Hill Gang".

          I generally buy my tickets at the same place, but stop in other places when its convenient. Being over 70, still have all my hair (none of it grey) and often told I don't look over 50, most of the ticket buyers I see are younger than I am.  I've lead a full adventurous life, still do, and expect to win the big one soon.  To be collected without publicity.
