Subject: BS: I'm 67 today and still as daft as 17...
From: Will Fly
Date: 23 Aug 11 - 05:21 AM

Strange how the brain retains the silliness of youth while the body marches on to a fanfare of added aches and pains.

So, while my body is 67 today (poor old thing), my brain is actively contemplating some additional folly...

I'm going to the Isle of Wight for the afternoon tomorrow - I'll report back and let you all know if it was open.

Although I'm a year older I know the feeling. I feel 25 till I look in the mirror & see my dad looking back! On one of his last recordings Big Bill Broonzy addressing a student audience in Denmark (I think) said much the same thing: the mind is 20s, the body's wearing out.
Let's all continue to grow old disgracefully.

As I zoom in on the big seven-oh, I keep thinking of a quote I saw, and can't remember exactly who or where...

"Inside every old person is a young person, asking 'What the f*** happened?'"

I'm almost 57 -- b'day on 4 September -- and I can't get over how much I look and sound like my mother at the end of her life. Except my hands, which look just like those of my 81-year-old aunt.

It's not fair, of course.

From the opening post:

Strange how the brain retains the silliness of youth ...

Are you sure it's "retention" and not the "recycling" that comes with dotty old age?

A couple of decades ago some medical studies called it "senile adolescence," or something like that. (When "senile" just meant "old" in med-speak.)

Of course I haven't been affected, but my young(er) trophy bride seems to get more childish every day ... .

Wow, this makes me feel better, I'm 61 on Saturday and someone makes me shave some old fella when I'm forced to look in the mirror.

I've even gone back to listening to the music of the 60's and most of the stuff I play hails from the same time.

I think it's called 'denial'.

Have fun and a very happy birthday - thanks for giving us a thread that's this much fun.

Just back from the Isle of Wight - it was open. And the sun shone and I had a lovely pint of Courage Best straight from the barrel behind the bar of the Bonchurch Inn in Bonchurch - a great pub which can't have changed much in 100 years.

Thanks for all the kind wishes. :-)

It's not so funny when you get to my age, go out to breakfast, order a three minute egg and they ask you to pay in advance.

Or you find yourself in the situation of the guy who came down to breakfast and found his wife undressed and lying on the kitchen table, saying "Take me! Right here! Right Now!"...Not being one to look a gift horse in the mouth, so to speak, he obeys. But when it's over, she jumps up and runs over to the kitchen stove. He asks her, "What was that all about?" She replies, "The egg timer's broken."

(Actually, I think I may have gotten that joke off of this forum in the first place. But that's one of the two good things about aging that I can think of: You don't have to worry about dying young, and you can enjoy the same joke more than once. I told that to my wife, and she added a third, that you always have someone to talk to. But in my case, that's been so all my life.)
