eventually comes to most people. But do we really consider what after 60 or 65 (shortly to be 68 for all) will actually mean to us.

You are as old as the person you feel ;)

My mother (who lives all alone) can't understand "How the old people manage" when handling things like mobile phones, digi boxes, and hearing aids. She had her 100th birthday in July and is quite capable of using all the above. She recently asked me to check that she was dialling the correct number to my son in the USA, and proceeded to rattle off a 15 digit telephone number from memory !!!
There's hopes for me yet.

My father in his late 70's said recently
"Idon't feel any differnet from when I was 18"
"I can still chase and catch the same women as I chased then"

Isnt saying anyone is old Ageist? Yes I just made a word up but I dont care. Only as old as you feal. I have nothing to loose so living it to the full. Now spuds close the topic and get back out there being yourself instead of getting caught up in this nonsense.

Getting old....isn't that what happens to other people?

PS Happy Birthday for the 3rd Kate.

Just what is old? Age is but a number. I suppose your concept of someone being old very much depends upon your age at the time! Old is a relative thing.
