So, Cheryl, are you older than me? <G>

No gray yet, hooray! Don't expect any for at least another 20 years.

*laughs* I think you'll have to revise that "Board Baby" thing. June 10th, 1987 here- making me the ripe age of 17! I would be highly surprised if I were the youngest, though. What happened, all of the younger KT members went to one of the other "alternate" boards?

Actually, I DO have to revise the Board Baby...

The award for being the youngest goes to ........ ZOEY! According to the calander, he actually made his first appearence in October of 1998.

Bea... You are everyone's Momma! And I am amazed .....I know people 20 years younger than you who are afraid of computers. (Now..having said that...Bea, you MAY want to check the YEAR you listed?)

Zoey's not the youngest, his son Buster is. Buster belongs to Anneli and I don't think she's put in his birthdate.

As far as real board particpants though, you may be the youngest so far Jesserli, at least the youngest to declare herself. I don't know where the KT youngsters are going, but I haven't noticed any obvious ones around here.

surely u mean 1979 as the youngest? if Cheryl is older the Tresa,who was bored in 1980 according to her profile, then she must have been born BEFORE 1980, not after. Therefore i would guess between 1975 and 1979.

Apparently Ryuu can write, but not count! 1972 would mean she was lying about not being in her 30s! I say, 1977.

Tresa
not neccessarily so. Cheryl said that she was not between "mid-30's & mid-40's". I did the math

& 1977 would have to be out since Cheryl said the late-20's was wrong.

:
Actually if she were born after 1980 she would be in her early 20s at the most. I'm a 1980 baby in my mid 20s so trust me on this one

As Cheryl has said in various previous posts that she's not mid 30s and late 20s is closer but still wrong I'd guess she's not a dissimilar age to me.

I was originally thinking lower to mid-20's, but then I got to thinking about her reply to Terresa:
Quote:
Uh, yeah, definitely!
& I just got the feeling that maybe a 10yrs difference to that range. Given that mid-30's to mid-40's was wrong & upper-20's is closer, but still wrong, that still leaves lower-30's as the other option.

thats what the conclusion i came to as well... between 30 and 33.

i hope Cheryl doesn't mind us trying to work out how old she is!

Fun reading all these calculations.

Shall I throw another piece or two of evidence into the mix? I've been married for ten years. And if you've been reading all my posts, you'd note that I have a Master's degree

I'll wait for everyone to agree on an age before the grand reveal.

*thinks 1946was a wonderful year* (will let you do the math!!)

As to grey hair.....I love it (though must say I don't have much...genetics, I guess), but like Cheryl, one lovely white streak right in the front, which many folks have asked where I had it done!!!

I do like Lily's philosophy about growing old "disgracefully"...except I intend to hold on to the "Peter Pan Syndrome" as long as I can.

So Shani can't be younger than 30 1/2, but if Cheryl is 31 1/2 then Shani recently turned 31.

Well Ryuu since you are the same age as my husband yes I consider you a youngin'. If you'd rather I can consider you old and be done with it but from my experience people tend to like to be thought of as young. My mistake.

I'll allow you that. It's a well-known fact that I'm not really a kid. In fact, when I was about 11, an adult friend of mine looked at me and said, "You're not a child. You're an adult in a midget-suit." My mother tends to tell me to "grow down."

Cherlyn is two years older than I am, and her son is about two years younger than my daughter. Rollerskates? Cherlyn, we need to hire sevants to run after these kids!

I've had grey hairs for at least five years... they just slowly accumulate.

When I keep my hair short they're not noticeable, but they're there nonetheless.

Just out of curiosity, as you may attest from my photo on my website I have brown hair; but as a kiddliewink it used to be blond. Have you ever had hair change, or eyes change, dramatically like that as you've matured (or not, in C_ris' case... )?

I'm gonna let my hair go gray. My real mom did. I remember the shock of the day when I saw my grandmother with a head of fully white hair... she used to for a long time dye her hair brown when I was growing up.... It was back in the 1980s, I was cleaning my glasses and looked up in the airport, to see a woman coming towards me and my mother... I had to do a doubletake after putting on my glasses...

Cheryl, what did you get your masters in. BTW, you are 3 years younger than me, but you have been married longer.

I found my first grey hair when I was 16. I thought whatever and went forward. When my youngest was born, my grey hair bothered me to no end so once he stopped nursing I dyed my hair and have never regretted it. Here is to hair dye!

Just out of curiosity, as you may attest from my photo on my website I have brown hair; but as a kiddliewink it used to be blond. Have you ever had hair change, or eyes change, dramatically like that as you've matured (or not, in C_ris' case... )?

Until I was about 6, I was a definate tow-head, and most people considered my eyes blue, or blue-grey.

In my teens, the red highlights in my hair got more prominant... and my eyes looked mostly green-grey.

Now, my hair is reddish/light brown with some silver, and my eyes are considered a green hazel. The eyes change with my moods, though. When I am very angry, they are blazing green. When I've been crying a lot, they are definately green. When I am upset, they look grey.
