So, today an invitation to join the AARP arrived. Of course, I'm not old enough to qualify for membership (not quite yet), but looks like they're willing to be broad-minded and let me pay for a membership even if I can't actually become a member for some time yet. Perhaps they've mistaken me for my father, who of course had the same name (with the addition of a "Sr." at the end), not having noticed that he died long, long before reaching retirement age himself (just after his thirty-seventh birthday)? A puzzle.
