Hey old fart, I am 51 in RL (21 in SL, like most people :-) ) and perhaps I can help you find your way again, like how to get dressed, remove the prim hair off your butt and so forth 😉
All joking aside, I can imagine how it is hard to try and catch up after 10 years of absence, so tap me on the shoulder in-world and we can have a little chat and perhaps a friendship 🙂

I'm 62 in rl (and 25 in SL ... sigh ...). Ah well.

I made a small retro hangout in SL – "Little Moons" – during these lockdown times.
It might appeal to some of the more mature SL:ers. Maybe not everyone, but some might like it. Pop by and visit if you like.
It's in the "Snowshoe (87, 44, 35)" region.

Tried to create a mix of:
(1) my grandfather's backyard as remember it from the 60s and 70s...
(2) something from a Ray Bradbury sci-fi story (with the UFO over the chimney)
(3) a few mini-games from vintage fairgrounds/carnivals (fortune teller, slot car racing, human cannonball ... always open to ideas)
Everything is haphazardly put together with duck tape. 😊

Little Moons is Moderate - I avoid the overly 'explicit' animations, but there are some dances and cuddles, a little pond to dive into and a number of places to just sit and chat. Swing from the moon... bring a friend and chat about old times, this, that and the other.

Be nice, be what you want to be – all preferences welcome – and enjoy, we're not in Kansas anymore.

Oh boy this is so me.. lol. I first started in 2007 and left in 2013 for work and illness. Came back fully last November after a 7 year absence and it was a lot to wrap my head around.. 51 in RL, 25 in SL.  Feel free to IM me as well. 

I even have a newbie under my name on this post.. lol. Oh for shame.. 😂

Returning resident from 2008, been MIA since 2011. I was 42 back then so does that make me an “old fart?” Ha-ha! Just upgraded to mesh last week. Very pleased to meet you all!

Welcome.. welcome. Yes,  you're most definitely eligible for the old farts gang.. lol

I am also returning after some years...I think 2015 was the last time I checked in. I had been on since 2008 and I have no idea why I went away. Anyway, I am self-isolated because of COVID-19, so I am back looking to talk to actual people and recapture the fun I had back then. I am remembering and learning how to walk and fly and it is all coming back to me. Old dogs, as they say. Anyway, as a 65 year old (25 in SL), I am glad to meet you young old farts.

Welcome back.. Send me a message in world, we can connect. I actually joined SL in 2007 but my original avatar got corrupted and became a permanent pink cloud for years. Even LL couldn't fix her back then. I've since gotten her back with 0 inventory and the dreaded pink and white polkadot dress from the library. She's now the red headed step child.. literally.. LOL. We really should form a group for us returning old farts. LOL. I might just do that when I'm in world today.. LOL.
