    Age is a state of mind. I'm 58 and as cute as a button, everybody says so.

    Got described as a "Dish" at a mates dads funeral last year.

    I think it's a state of mind, not a number...

    My Gran always used to say ‘I’m as old as my tongue and a little older than my teeth’.

    I’ve noticed with age you don’t quite bounce as well as you did when you were younger. Injuries also take a lot longer to repair. It must be a middle aged thing.

    Always watched this. Mainly for the intro song as it was by one of my all time favourites John Sebastian.

    Is middle aged is when you look forward to getting home after work to enjoy the other half's cottage pie, before a night in front of the telly when you fall asleep cause you feel knackered?....and have a headache!

    On that basis not looking forward to it.........

    It might be how severe the injury was in the first place as well, to be fair.

    I don’t think I would ever have bounced that well after falling 15’ or so!

    Ok. Back to hospital on the 5/2 to see if I need another op, can’t rotate my wrist and forearm- so the surgeon thinks the radius and ulna might be fused. I ended up using Bupa for physio and I’ve made quite a bit of progress. Had a CT scan in December on my arm. I have to say the NHS have still been brilliant, despite the pandemic and the strain that has put on hospitals every appointment has been kept.

    All the world’s a stage,
    And all the men and women merely players;
    They have their exits and their entrances;
    And one man in his time plays many parts,
    His acts being seven ages. At first the infant,
    Mewling and puking in the nurse’s arms;
    And then the whining school-boy, with his satchel
    And shining morning face, creeping like snail
    Unwillingly to school. And then the lover,
    Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad
    Made to his mistress’ eyebrow. Then a soldier,
    Full of strange oaths, and bearded like the pard,
    Jealous in honour, sudden and quick in quarrel,
    Seeking the bubble reputation
    Even in the cannon’s mouth. And then the justice,
    In fair round belly with good capon lin’d,
    With eyes severe and beard of formal cut,
    Full of wise saws and modern instances;
    And so he plays his part.
    The sixth age shifts
    Into the lean and slipper’d pantaloon,
    With spectacles on nose and pouch on side;
    His youthful hose, well sav’d, a world too wide
    For his shrunk shank; and his big manly voice,
    Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
    And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
    That ends this strange eventful history,
    Is second childishness and mere oblivion;
    Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.


    I reckon I'm a Justice, me.

    Round belly? Check

    Good capon lin’d? Umm, probably. If it means I eat too much.

    Eyes severe? Mincers are a bit dodgy to be honest. Varifocals help.

    Beard of formal cut? Is straggly, wild classed as formal?

    Wise saws? Hell yer, I'm renowned for me clever sayin's.

    Modern instances? Too righty, matey. I'm down with the kids me!!!

    One of the most bizarre comments I've read on here for a long time.
