I was married before most of you were born, 46 years ago. So yes, I'm old as dirt. Got my medicare card this month. Find that at my age I can say just about anything I want and people still love me, flirt with the handsome young men and no one cares and even though I have flabby thighs, fortunately my stomach covers them and my boobs cover my stomach.

I'm 57, and my only birth child Travis is 35, and awaiting his second trip to prison. He was out 8 months and decided he liked his meth better than him mom. I am married to a wonderful man who teaches math at a high school, I have 3 step children, the oldest is 38, owns his own business and is recently divorced, no children, the middle one is a 37 year old girl and she is a teacher also, she just had her 1st child 6 months ago and he is my 3 grandson. The youngest just turned 26, is married and the father of my 17 month old, 2nd grandson. My son that is awaiting sentencing is the father of my 1st grandson, who is 7 1/2 years old and the light of my life. I love all my children and grandson's but there's just something about the 1st grand baby...

Well...it looks like I've moved up one more group in the age poll thing...I used to be in the 40-50 group...oh well...life is grand. I've made a major shift in careers recently due to layoffs, I no longer am doing software testing but rather I'm flagging now. In the 13 years I was inside at the computer I was always wanting to join the groundskeepers outside...but the pay would not support my house. So after the layoff I decided to get certified (not psych) and start flagging...ITS GREAT. I've been married 31 years, we have a combined family (yours, mine, ours) of 7 ranging from 37 to 27, and 10 grandkids ages 2-17

heheh...feeling 22 doesn't mean you have to use the sense of a 22 year old.

I am 53 with a 26 year old son in TDCJ for the last 6 years. I have 2 older daughters and 5 grandchildren.The 16 year old lives with me.I am married,but I'm not sure he still lives in the house because I never see him--I work nights.I drive 8 hours to see my son each month and my husband may or may not come. I have literally worn out the tires of a 2006 Charger--twice.

I'm 45 years young with 2 son's my inmate child just turned 25! At 40 when my son was 19 and arrested everything changed~ I was looking forward to an empty nest but then regretted wanting that as I would much rather have my son home with us for 15 more years than him being in prison for those 15 years! I will be 55 years old when he comes home.

My drivers license says I'm 60, my gray hair says I'm way over 60, but my heart says I'm 40. My son in prison is 39. I also have a daughter (never been in jail) who is 36. I have 3 biological grandsons and 4 grandsons of my heart.

I just turned 40.
My son is 17 and was just detained 2 weeks ago but has at least 25 felony charges pending.
He is in NC with his father. I live in TX with my husband and 3 little girls who are 4, 2, and 8 months.

Hi tanya702..... My daughter will be going to prison here in california...She will be 29 August 9th...she has 4 wonderful boys. Maybe you can give me some info. about the prison. This is all new to us. I'm so proud of how my daughter is handeling herself...we have a very strong faith and she walked away from it for a few years, she is building up her faith again.
I hope to connect with you soon.
