While I was briefly & superficially exposed to Lisp 1.5 when I
was 25 or so (can you say "Eliza"?), it wasn't until I was 46
that I seriously started learning and using Scheme, some time
later still to begin reading about Common Lisp (including "ANSI CL"
and "On Lisp"), and it wasn't until I was *56* that I started
seriously coding in Common Lisp (and dropped Scheme).

Oh, well, some of us are slow...   ;-}   ;-}
