I don't mean the physical things like illness or not being able to see the progress of your off spring once you have gone. Whilst I can imagine the future be I right or wrong I will never know. Those that have lived 100yrs have seen huge changes in a relatively short time. Any thoughts on this.

I hate it that I can no longer recognise the difference in taste between the Premier Cru Clarets, let alone afford them

I've had to downsize on my outdoor potted plants. It's not so easy now to look after them the way I used to. I've whittled 'em down to about twenty.

They say that age is all in the mind. The trick is to keep it from creeping down into your body.

My shoelaces seem to be getting further away from my hands!

My brain makes appointments that my body cannot keep.

Harder to do the "fine work" in tight spaces - can't get my head in the right place to get the varifocals to work. (I 'm struggling to see the shoelaces) ;0)

Can't do some of the things I did when younger the reaction times just aren't fast enough anymore never mind the physical side of it.

Names are fast going (although faces are still there) I going to start wearing a badge that says "I'm old, remind me who you are".

I certainly can't learn things as fast I as I used to even though I have learn't why.

Now I've seen how much the world has change in my lifetime I would love to see mankind reach Mars and other planets and stars.

Not being able to relate (or enjoy) to any of the music on the radio or most modern TV shows or movies.

I can remember when you had to put four old pennies in tp speak to an operator from a phone box. Do not have any problems with laces. Only my dance shoes and one pair of walking shoes have laces. Will not climb ladders. I do not nee glasses but if the print is very small, I will use a magnifying glass.
