Do you have a comforter you carry around?

Wee Eddies reply to my Water Thread made me think if I have one,and at 55 I must confess I do! thogh never realised it.

It is a brass tag I bought at the Mary Rose Exhibition about 20 yrs ago.

One one side it reads

Nobody is perfect

other side

Except the Captain

Having sailed with a few of these Perfect Captains I found myself carrying it around and rubbing it when I was getting a leture from Captain Perfect.

Large bottle opener on my key ring which I would be lost without. If I drop the keys anywhere I know immediately by the clatter when the large metal object hits the ground. Does anyone remember those big wooden squares attached to big bunches of keys, which were used in the forces to make sure keys couldn't be lost?

my comforter.

I get panic-struck if I find that I have left the house without it!

This growing up lark is not all it's cracked-up to be but it come to all of us at some time.

Last night I was in Tesco and met one of the girls (in her mid 20's)from the Aerobics class I used to attend. After a long chat, she asked why I had not been in for a while. I said that at 62 I felt that I was getting a little long in the tooth and anyway I was finding it frustrating not being able to do the High Impact Burn any longer.

That got a snort of derision, she said that about half the class never managed the High Impact bit anyway, so I should not allow that to get in my way. Maybe I should do a Frank Sinatra!

It has saved my life once, it is a brass disk 1" in diameter that I keep on my keyring. It has a letter and two numbers on it, they are my initial and caving club number. If I get lost underground (at 58 not so lightly now) the disk will let the others know that I have not returned and after the return time they will come looking for me - I hope. I worked once when I was trapped by a sudden flood.
