Getting Old Doesn't Mean Losing Your Sense of Humor

DEAR ABBY: Your entertaining messages about "You know you're getting older when ..." remind me of one that recently brought me to a sudden reality: You know you're getting older when you introduce your son to someone as, "My son, the grandfather!" -- CHARLES J. COOK, MIDLOTHIAN, VA.

DEAR CHARLES: That's great, Great-grandfather! Congratulations on the new arrival.
