Zizkov. Since I retired I have suffered awful back pain, agree it's an age thing, mind you the wife has been telling me for
sometime that I'm a pain in the back (side). :D

Allows you to recognise a decent player from a hyped up one.Yesterdays game was a good example.
Tammy Abraham and Jack Grealish.
Reasonable Championship players but not the world beaters that the pro Villa commentary tried to portray them as.

Lightweights three times a week; afternoon rides on my motorbike; touring on the bike around Spain etc; backpacking around Southeast Asia. Retirement has been fun so far.

Getting older is compulsory, but growing up still remains optional; for myself and more especially the wife, we're still waiting for the age when I'm old enough to know better.

Great post, especially the ''some people in their 40s'' bit. It's so true. Listening to some people that age speaking, you'd think they were on the point of death. When I entered my forties, I felt like I was still in my twenties. Genes help here. When my mother was in her early 70s, she moved like a young woman.

Being old, is when you realise people who were not even born when you started drinking. Now have children old enough to drink :|

I keep fit, work out 3 times a week (weights - heavy), not overweight, walk a great deal, never use a lift (even when I used to work on the sixth floor) and had kids late so they kept me young and the grand kids now do the same. And I'm mentally childish (unashamedly so).

Of course all this is very well but I wish I could get through the night without at least two bathroom visits. :lol:

I don't know whether I should post this on here as most will get wrong impression
I believe age is just a number especially when 2 people are truly in love with each other

Get old gracefully.....sod that for a game of soldiers!

I am 68 going on 38 and my Beautiful
and she is Beautiful fiancee is 21 going on 31

So only 7 years Age difference :D

I may not see the year out :D

But on my tombstone it will say ......

It was the way he would have wanted to go :lol: :lol: :lol:

Not leaving home without paracetamols in your pocket.
Tying shoe laces becomes mission impossible.
Short term memory loss.
Going into a room and wondering why.
Forgetting names hence calling people "there" ...."Hello there, how are you?"
Being introduced to "touchscreen" and realising you have dyslexic fingers.
Short term memory loss.
Ensuring there are plenty of toilet stops when planning a trip.
Cups of tea are a pleasure to look forward to, realising you are beginning to sound just like your Parents.
Short term memory loss.
