I just turned 61 last month. I've come to realize it is never to late until you are dead.
I recently (4 months ago) started to play the Guitar. Never played an instrument until 4 months ago. Well I finally did my first solo performance of playing and singing a song by my self at church, two weeks ago Monday. I was petrified, but I was told I didn't do to badly. I didn't miss a chord, but my strumming needs work. But still after only 4 months at 60 years young. I feel good about it. I started to practice July 7th, and have played  2 hours a day every day since, with the exception of 3 days when my Friend and Partner Kaw-Liga passed away, even then I managed to practice a few minutes to get my mind focused. I recently become friends with 2 new guys art church, and find out they both are very good Guitar players.
I'll be looking up Finlover here in about another 6 to 8 months.
BTW, Guitars are as addictive as Phones, I went from one my Mom gave me, now I have 5. They are all different types however.

Hey one thing I have learned, age is but a number. I took a physical test in the National Guard last month. I ran the two mile run in 13:05. For my age group I had until 17:18 before I failed. Needless to say I maxed my run time. I beat even all my younger soldiers. Heck I was the fastest person in my unit. The next guy ran 13:10. Age is but a number!

It seems at 45 that I'm right on the average age for the group..though it took me far longer than a lot of you to get into the telephone hobby.
