After the dance, she offers you a 3-channel hearing aid ( to reduce your crew's frustration on long voyages) , a set of perfectly balanced canes, and a Dutch GPS ( so you can find your way home !) .

When she wants a selfie with you after the dance, and you have no idea what that means...

When you're introduced to the governor's daughter and she says she has heard of you - in history class.

A girl wanting a selfie with you could in time gone be created a few smiles too...

You are definitely getting too old when you don't fight the annoying captain (who is also getting old) because you both went upstairs to fight and forgot what you went upstairs for.

You don't fight Mendoza because you are too busy reminiscing and gossiping.

Remember when I rescued Maria from you back in '55?

Yes I do. A fine girl.

Her granddaughter invited me to her wedding.

You are also getting too old when you and Monty agree to call off your epic sword fight because neither of you can find his fencing glasses.

Also, when your biggest consideration in choosing a flag ship is whether or not the toilets (located under the poop deck) are handicap accessible.

It is also a bad sign when someone asks your age and you have to stop to count, possibly with the help of your fingers. (Sadly, I speak from experience.)

Oh yeah. When the lady from the historical preservation society won't let the governor hang you for piracy, because the old biddy says that you are part of the national cultural heritage, and should be properly studied by historians and then put in a museum.

You ask permission to marry the governor's daughter and he says '' No, but my father died six years ago, so perhaps you would care to meet my mother? ''

As an afterthought he adds, '' She still has most of her teeth, you know, and she prefers older men. ''

When you were young and went into a music store, you looked in the oldies section and hadn't heard most of the bands because they were before your time.

Now you go into a music store and you haven't heard of half the bands in the oldies section because they are from after your time.

All very good - but I had to read them several times - as I kept forgetting what I had just read.

Why thank you, Rusty. I like the fencing glasses one myself (though I say so as shouldn't) because I know exactly what losing your glasses is like. (I lost a pair in the ocean. I'll never find that pair again.)
