It's a bit weird being the same age as old people.

I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.
If a friend seems distant, catch up with them.

I hope you're resisting the temptation to wear a "hoody" ?

The Q

Went to a model Railway show last year, and was asked,, are you a concession? IE do you qualify for a pensioners ticket..
I went ... Oh yes I am, I'd been to a couple of other shows and forgotten...

emjaybee

Hmm...

...there's a few on here you have to make concessions for!

It's not just weird, it's downright inappropriate. Five years ago I was 30 and now I'm in my 60s. How did this happen?

Tutankhamun's not as old as most of David's jokes.

We live in a time when intelligent people are being silenced, so that stupid people won't be offended.

Oh Dannyboy, thank you; I thought everybody was being silenced.

How old is old? I'm 67 but I don't feel old, but I suspect there are many younger than me that do. It's down to mind and body and luck I think......

 
I had my only pensioners meal when I wasn't even 60, with my wife and friends who were all well under 60! I've only managed free bus travel since actually becoming a state pensioner.....must try harder!

I'm 75, but I admit to no more than late middle age...

The only thing that makes me feel old is when they say that things like Bridge over Troubled Water came out 55 years ago.

The Q

I joined my first railway society . Not long past... 49 years ago.
A couple of years ago people started asking me about the running of my sailing club, even committee members.. I've only been a member 44 years. I know members who were founders..in 1938 I did know and raced against founders of the original sailing club which was in 1910...

I used to say to a youngster trying to advise me on computers,  I soldered a computer together before your parents were born, now I say it was before your grandparents were born... And was living in Bletchley Park before that ( just)
