Thread Name: What counts as young?
Subject: RE: What counts as young?
Well I'm definitely one of the 'new' old. Not only have I got two grandchildren, I've got an 8-year old daughter and she's several years younger than her cousin's children so she's an aunty with nieces and nephews older than her. Family gatherings can be very confusing!
Anyway, I'm with George Burns when he said that old age isn't so bad when you consider the alternative - I hope I continue to grow old disgracefully for a very long time - that way I may even have paid off the mortgage before I die.
