Hell, I've talked the Supervisors at work, most of whom are either over 60 or damned close to it, to form an Olympic-style pistol team and when we're reasonably good we're going to challenge and out-shoot the Police Department supervisors.

And we're going to wear our Library raid jackets when we do, too!

(Safety, I hasten to add, is paramount. There will be literally hours of study before they even pick up a pistol and even more before they send a bullet downrange.)

Then we're going to send an article to "American Libraries" where it won't be published.

There is nothing like being older to become...eccentric? Odd? Or is it simply a new perspective on enjoying life?

When my father in law died, we 'inherited' his car. It's a big Toyota Yaris Estate - short but big, a cherry red box with a low slung body. I love it, but it's so obviously an old person's car, great for the arthritic and careful. I drive it around London and take great joy in seeing people's faces when they pull up alongside me at the traffic lights and hear Meatloaf, Status Quo or Jez Lowe blaring out of the stereo... and it's even better when I see their faces in the rear view mirror as I tear away from the lights!

So often springs to my lips the famous line from the film of 'Fried green tomatoes at the Whistlestop Cafe'...

"Let's face it girls, I'm older than you and have better insurance!"

I had a letter recently from an old friend who's also godmother to my two kids. She's a definite member of the GODS (Growing Old Disgracefully Society)and shows how we should never streotype the 'mature' generation.

Cabs has just truned 60, she's married to Tony who's in his seventies and is a 'retired' professor of English who now writes dictionaries and is working on three books full time. They have 6 grown-up children - three from Tony's first marriage and three they adopted from the streets of Colombia - and 9 grandchildren.

Cabs is a fantastic artist and has recently completed a fine arts degree. She writes:

"What I most enjoy about reaching sixty is that it is a licence to become even more eccentric. Long live my second adoloscence. I love having purple hair and being the art group jester (as well as being the art group granny). We held three group exhibitions, two of which were more concerned with experimental work."

That's what the GODS is all about.

Incidentally, Growing Old Disgracefully was a course run by the Workers' Educational Association, who my wife works for. It was run by a wonderful lady in her seventies (sadly now deceased) and was one of their most popular courses in the York area (and probably the reason there are so many tattooed 70-year olds in York).

Probably the best way to keep a seat is to scratch. A lot. Most of the the time people will even move somewhere else. If asked, just mutter, "Oh, it's nothing to worry about" and if pressed just say you can't pronounce the name.

Absolutely!! I think she's wonderful, and all the Harvey Baines's of this world should get one for Christmas.

But Christ on a bicycle Liz, why ever have you decided to GROW UP??

That's letting the side down, Liz.

Why my 39 year old daughter, and my 38 year old son are both older than me. They HAVE to be responsible! I've retired from that grouping.

Richard Bridge is right too. There's an ineffable feeling of delight as you watch the hot hatch with two tons of woofers and tweeters in the boot (trunk for you Norte Americanos) dwindle to a dot in your rear view mirror, as you accelerate away from the traffic lights.

Passing one on the motorway at slightly over 70 (ninety, to be precise), and changing up into top when alongside also ranks as one of life's joys, but DO remember to check for the Plod (Smokeys) beforehand.

Reminds me of the story about the faith healer. He'd preached and worked himself up into a fine show just before performing a "miracle" and then passing the plate. He called for someone from the audience to come forward, and a little old lady on crutches, helped by a friend, came forward.

"Do you believe?" he asked and the old lady agreed completely.

"Now step behind this curtain and PRAY for healing!" And the lady and her helper did.

The preacher prayed out loud for a couple of minutes and then yelled, "Throw out your crutch!" and a crutch came sailing over the curtain.

He prayed for a couple more minutes and yelled, "Throw out your other crutch!" and the second crutch came over the curtain.

"And praise the Lord! What has happened?" he shouted.

And the companion replied, "She fell down, ya silly bastard, what do think happened?"

Drifting but still a wheelchair story: I was pushing a saga gal with MS through the crowded county fair in her wheelchair. We went over some thick electrical cables, when a mass of sparks exploded around us. The crowd turned and looked in horror – she stood up, raised her palms outward and upward, yelling "It's a miracle!!"

The crowd did NOT think it was the least bit funny.

I own a copy of Dr. A's (Isaac Asimov) "The Sensuous Dirty Old Man." It is full of wonderful ideas and thoughts about growing old disgracefully.

Yesterday we went to finish up our wills and associated crap, which we've forgotten to do for since 2006. The lawyer looked at me and say, "So, how old ARE you?" and he about fainted when I answered "63." And then he asked my wife -- who just applied for Social Security at 65 and 10 months.... Poor chap might never recover.

I'm leaving my banjbodhcordion to the county landfill, if the government doesn't confiscate it first as an instrument of mass destruction.

Warning - When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple

By Jenny Joseph




When I am an old woman, I shall wear purple

with a red hat that doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.

And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves

and satin candles, and say we've no money for butter.

I shall sit down on the pavement when I am tired

and gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells

and run my stick along the public railings

and make up for the sobriety of my youth.

I shall go out in my slippers in the rain

and pick the flowers in other people's gardens

and learn to spit.



You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat

and eat three pounds of sausages at a go

or only bread and pickles for a week

and hoard pens and pencils and beer nuts and things in boxes.



But now we must have clothes that keep us dry

and pay our rent and not swear in the street

and set a good example for the children.

We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.

But maybe I ought to practice a little now?

So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised

When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.

With profuse apologies for stabbing him, they'd get the message and I'd get the seat!

I have a wonderful book called "Growing old Disgracefully" by Rohan Candappa. I strongly recommend it.
The subtitle is, "how to upset and perplex your children with increasingly erratic and unreasonable behaviour". on the back it says, "Do you really want to embrace old age? wouldn't you rather wrestle it to the floor and then sweet talk it into coming away with you for a dirty weekend in Barcelona?"
It deals with subjects as diverse as slang, sex, farting, lycra and death (with some recommended theme funerals),among many more.
It is a real laugh, and I reckon it should be issued free of charge at 50, let alone 60 - it's too good to leave until then!

I was under the misapprehension that the qualifying age for SAGA was 60. I was wrong. It is 50. So I qualified to be a saga lout nearly 10 years ago - and Don has been at it for considerably longer than 7!

Another game that both Don and I enjoy is the innocuous looking Grandpa wagon - in my case Volvos, in his a Ford Scorpio - with enough oomph seriously to embarrass children with hatchbacks with fart-box exhausts...

I'm working on the in-car sound system to ensure that children with "duff-duff" boxes in their boots can be treated to about 120 Db of crumhorn solo in traffic jams, too.

Being some seven years into the era of Grumpy old Gittery (GOG 1st class), it does my old ticker good to see all you enthusiastic young'uns limbering up for the fray.

The best Weapon of Mass Disruption is the simple, old fashioned, walking stick.

The guy that pushes past you so rudely can be dealt with in several ways

1. The low level approach, in which the stick is reversed and becomes somehow hooked around his ankle, affording him an eye level view of the dirt under the counter opposite, and giving you something soft to wipe your feet on.

2. The high level approach in which you "accidentally" catch the back of his collar, bringing him to a sudden halt, while at the same time depriving him of the ability to swear at you.

3. My particular favourite this. The steering arm approach. Careful timing in attaching your hook to one elbow, combined with a sudden alteration of your own pace, and course, will, in the best case scenario project him violently into the chill cabinet on top of the American fries and frozen broccoli.

Profuse apologies, with a beaming smile, and a couple of inadvertent digs with the other end of the stick, as you help him to his feet, will rub salt in the wound and ensure that he will frequent a different supermarket in future.

It's fun growing old, as long as you remember not to grow up.

Just gotta cultivate bloody-mindedness, Herga Kitty. Ever see a British comedy series called Waiting for God? It's a pretty good telecourse on how to go about it.

Examples:   Love in the retirement home, and Psychiatric evaluation

Barring the availability of a Star Trek-style ship-mounted phaser cannon, I'm thinking about having a couple of .50 cal. machine guns mounted on either side of the footrests of the power wheelchair. This would be to get the attention of the hordes of people who weave back and forth along the sidewalks in the nearby business district with cell phones grafted to the sides of their heads. Same problem as cell phone addicted drivers on the freeways and streets. I have to yell a lot to keep people from winding up in my lap (although whether I do yell or not sometimes depends on the age and gender of the person with the cell phone). I actually saw somebody once, lost in conversation, run into a metal light pole. Very satisfyingly resonant "BONG!"

A full-powered blast of the phaser cannon or an enthusiastic burst from the .50 calibers would mainly be for the kids with the low-riding pants hurtling down the sidewalk on their skateboards who think the curb ramps at corners were put there for their exclusive benefit. I once got sworn at by one of these acne-studded cretins because I was about to cross the street and was going down the ramp just as he came tearing down the sidewalk behind me aiming for the same ramp.

I'm not the only one. Fully ambulatory and agile folks have to stay alert and nimble in order to avoid the same kinds of collisions, and I've seen more than one sweet little grey-haired lady come out of a grocery store and get knocked ass over teakettle by one of these mindless kamikazes.

But just remember:   Experience and treachery will triumph over youth and speed every time!

I have two wheelchairs, one a "Quicky 2" manual, and a Pride "Jazzy" electric that I use if I'm going any long distances at all. It has a range of about 25 miles on a full charge and it weighs a bit—close to 100 lbs, not counting me. I was using the electric at the time.

I didn't actually chase the guy down. I was cruising down the aisle of a drugstore in my neighborhood—not really going that slowly—and I didn't even know the guy was there until he tried to shove past me and I felt one of the big power wheels run over his foot.

He uttered an incoherent yelp and danced a lot on one foot, holding the other one with the tire tread imprint in his hands.

Gee, fella, sorry about that!   (But not really, you rude bastard!).

Saga - a company that specialised in package holidays for the over 50's, now expanded into many areas of over 50's living.

Has, over the years gained the sobriquet 'Sex And Games for the Aged'.

A Saga lout is one over 50 who indulges in the sort of unpleasant, loud and alcohol fuelled behaviour usually indulged in by the younger generation or 'lager louts'.

I'm really looking forward to when I can join!

I understand the meaning as used for this thread, but the words "saga lout" don't mean that, usually, to me. I thought at first someone had really turned into a SAGA game addict and was spending all of their time on the sofa playing video games. Then I thought, well maybe it is someone being quite dramatic and creating a "saw-gah" and being a bit rude about it. So, then I open this and find that nutty has to have had a birthday and she's not taking crap from anyone any more. Good for you, Hazel!! (I guess I've been a saga lout all of my life.**bg**)
