40ish and beyond... 40ish and beyond...

 Who is really tall or just overall large person (not short and fat) I'm talking like over 6'3 or more (I consider 6'2 average for a man because that's how we grow them in my family haha).

Joe and I went out last night and ran across a friend of ours I hadn't seen in awhile and I forgot how tall he was...he wears a 42/40 in jeans!! Can you imagine a 40 length?  I do know him and Joe wear the same size shirt because of their long arm length and long body length..because we used to fight over the shirts that a local western store carried. 

His nickname is sasquatch....hahaha

I am 5 foot even, first husband was 6'2",my second 6'1"....my daughters are 5'5" and 5'4"....my son says I am holsig him back because his dad is 6'2" but he is only 5'11"....my short genes are interfering with his success lol. He says a study says that men who are 6' or taller are more successful. My youngest daughters will probaby be short as well. My stepsons are both 6'3', oldest step daughter is 6' and the younger one is about 5'9"

One of my best buddies (one of my groomsmen) and best girlfriends (his "matching" bridesmaid) are, respectively, 6'7" and 6'3".  He used to be skinny as a rail, but now his girth is proportional to his height!

I have a cousin who reached 6'7 by the time he was 16.  His dad is about 6'0.

My dad was 6'4, mom was 5'2.  Oldest bro is 6'1, middle bro about the same and youngest bro was probably 5'11.  I'm 5'3 and shrinking.  My son is 6'2 and daughter is probably 5'10.  Mom and I were the shrimps of the bunch.

BTW, when I was in my 20s, I dated a guy who was 6'9.  I had a perpetual crick in my neck.  Ugh.  He was a sweet guy but at 5'3, it just got to be too much.  LOL.

One of my former students is now a freshman basketball player in college and 7' tall!  When  I taught him he was 6'9"!  

When he was young and a trouble maker, he used to like to use his size to intimidate people.  That didn't work on me.  When Robert got in trouble, I'd make him sit down so I could yell at/lecture him.  haha

I have a grandson who is 6'4".  He says he is still growing.  I think that the president of the college is about 6'7".
