I have used that Vitamin D mouth spray thing before, I think it helps, must buy more.

OP, yes old age comes to us all in the end. When it does we should take the rough with the smooth.
Of course some people were born old. Their posts sound like their brains were frozen in time - the prehistoric period. :ooer:
Always start a story at the beginning. If you start your story-telling in the middle, you are deliberately trying to omit the most crucial part, the part which puts everything into perspective.

I do not imagine myself being old at all, I am old.

I am in good nick due to my years in the army and boxing.

Since the middle 90s I have shot and fished.

I have aches and pains like most over 50 though.
LOOK AFTER OUR OWN FIRST.

To all those who have asked, I am lucky to have family near by, and carers coming in 3 times a day, I manage to get a few hours to myself most days.

Thank You for caring.

And I went and told you that you should spell better. My apologies.

I look after my dad, who is 90. He never believed he'd be old either, and still talks about the 1950s like it was yesterday. He mentioned watching Top Hat the other day, and remembers walking away from the cinema and looking back and thinking Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers were now having tea up in the top of the building. We worked out that this was in 1935, when he was 8.

Nothing changes, it's still the same life, you just become decrepit and die.

Thanks.

Yes, he is quite funny, actually. I found him the other day staring at the floor, and when I asked what he was doing he told me he'd seen Cary Grant's face in the pattern in the carpet and was trying to find it again.
