Number 3. Feeling stiff? Wink

As for number 15 and number 34, at my age high court judges look young and I shifted from Radio 2 to Radio 4 years ago! Used to love Terry Wogan and his talks about TOGs.

Re: 50 signs you are getting old !

Is it bad that a lot of these points fit me and I’m only 29?
I suspect I might start saying “Get off my lawn, you kids” soon. Cheesy

If you should find a suppository in your ear - you'll know at that moment where your hearing aid is.

It has been said that the volume level of the groan made when getting out of an arm-chair is directly proportional to age.

How about adding 'When more of the people you know are dead than alive'. Sad

Sadly, about 40 out of 50 for me (if one of the other 10 had been 'going upstairs, then standing in your bedroom thinking "now, what did I come up here for?"' it would have been 41! Crazy2)

@Infinity

Now be fair how do you expect me to remember a list that long at my age ?

How many was in the list again ?

Years ago a old chap I knew went to the doctors complaining he was tired a lot of the time and doctor told him to go home and look at his birth certificate. (True story)

I am around that chaps age now.

You're only as old as the woman you're with at the time.  Grin Mind you, 'wifey' keeps telling me to grow up...I'm 65 in 3 weeks time.  Roll eyes

A float tip is pleasing in its appearance and even more pleasing in its disappearance.
Growing old is inevitable...But growing up is optional.
