If at least 65, you are a ?

I've been a baby, child, youth, young adult, adult, and middle aged. At post-65, none of those fit very well. But I really haven't found a word that I like that accurately names the post-65 set of people.

Below is a cobbled together list of names of the post-65 set that I compiled from various sources. Doubtless there are many others.

Regardless of the age you have attained, what word (on the list below or not) do you think best describes post-65 people as a group?

aged
advanced
advanced in life
advanced in years
age-old
ageless
aging
along in years
ancient
anile
antique
auld
been around
broken down
crone
dateless
debilitated
declining
decrepit
elderly
enfeebled
exhausted
experienced
fossil
geezer
geriatric
getting on
gray
gray with age
gray-haired
gray-headed
grizzled
grown old
having one foot in the grave
hoary
impaired
inactive
infirm
long in the tooth
lot of mileage
mature
no spring chicken
not young
of advanced age
old
old as history
old as Methuselah
old as time
old-fogyish
old-time
olden
oldish
on last leg
over the hill
past it
past middle age
past one's prime
pensioners
retired
ripened
seasoned
senescent
senile
senior
skilled
superannuated
timeless
tired
venerable
versed
veteran

Phlisophical observation RV.

Perhaps a metaphor for the life some of us may have led.

K(C)rusty Dave. Or is that Rusty Dave....not quite over 65 yet.

I am older and don't care for euphamisms.

We used to be old people.
Then that became not PC and we became senior citizens.
Then that also was deemed not PC and we became seniors.
But seniors are not old people, they are really young people in their last year of high school or college.
In short, it makes no difference what you are called. Act how you feel, and do what you enjoy and are capable of.
The politically correct crap is just...crap.

Nicknames change with time.

Right now, over 65, are simply "Baby Boomers" -- the kids of the "Greatest Generation".
