45 year owner with 21 annual meetings attended. Does that qualify as long term?

I suppose a really long-term owner bought a little before Warren Buffett bought his first shares.

I am only a 23-year owner and got my first shares in about the middle of August. The commissions in those days were very high. I never went to one of those annual meetings. I have a certificate for each of those shares in my safe deposit box at my bank. I wish I had the nerve to frame one and hang it on my living room wall. But I do not.
