What time do you pensioners in the UK go to the pub ?

Depends on the quality of the company, Joe.

Well behaved and just like my mum = Hardly ever/never  :(

Occasional a bit naughty = 19:00 ish  ;)

Quite often naughty = 17:30 ish  :D

Very naughty and therefore my bestest pals ever = They're open!  :claphappy:  :beers:

Dave G
And we usually meet up a lunchtimes, so what does that say about us, Dave?

you have your priorities right  :beers:

Without letting the cat out of the bag @Malc , shall we just say that lunchtime is somewhere between 'They're open' and closing time!  ;)

Don't go the the pub any more.

The two nearest are "gastro Pubs" ie unfriendly to drinkers unless you pay a fortune for a meal.
The Next two, one I don't think it's been repainted since they banned smoking, but it is still a pub. The other is a pub that serves food, not too bad but not worth the journey. Once I  retire I expect I'll frequent a pub more often.. There's one just round the corner from the MRC, and I'll be spending a lot more time there..

Our 9 year old pooch has a problem with his skin and shedding a lot of fur. The last week or so he has started drinking more and doing huge pees so we thought we'd better get him to the vet.

Two bloodtests and a full MOT and it turns out he has "hypothyroidism" which is quite common in older large dogs. The bank account is now £300 lighter [insurance claim going in] and he's now on antibiotics and tablets to sort his thyroid out. Got to go back in 2 weeks for another blood test and see if the thyroid tablet strength needs adjusting. He'll be on those for the rest of his life, but fingers crossed he's now sorted.

I hope he soon gets sorted Philipp. Our pets can be expensive, but would we be without them?  :no:

It's an unfortunate fact that pets get more expensive to run as they get older. Our old dog was on tablets for a heart murmur for years (he always swallowed them without a fuss as he knew they would shortly be followed by breakfast or dinner). Then as he got frailer the visits to the vet became more and more frequent. The insurers paid up without quibble, but the premiums went ballistic. But he was a lovely dog - he was with us until just after his 16th birthday and he repaid us every penny we spent on him. We still have his great-grand-daughter and great-great-grand-daughter to keep us active!

Hope your dog is still with you for many years to come, Philipp.

Cheers, Chris

Those symptoms ring a bell :-[

Being serious, I hope the meds work and your pet is back to normality very soon.

Hope the meds do the trick. Always a worry when a special pal is poorly.

Our Blue (British Blue super cat)  is 11 and his insurance premium almost doubled when he reached 10.

Chatted with our home visiting vet (a blessing!) and we now invest the original premium in his own premium bonds account. So far just a few minor calls so no financial pressure and the tiniest hope Blue will make us a million!  :D
