Getting old

Post by markp » Sat Aug 01, 2015 7:05 am

WTF

One day you wake up and notice pains that happen for no reason 8O

and also you start making noises when getting out ya split screen ( kind of like a moan / grown ) same noise when getting out the sofa at home

note to self ..... act younger / enjoy life and always tell ya family ya love them

You young MOFO's will not understand this but you ageing old git's out there will have a chuckle at this

Be young dudes and don't let the old age stuff take over ....... I ant giving in ever ...... I'll always be a loony


Over and Out

I'm with ya Mark. I'm 49 at the mo and now I've had to start wearing glasses for reading, My knees creek and groan, my back has popped more in the last 5 years, than it ever has. I see youngsters come to the gym where I go and within 6 months they doing more weights than I've achieved in 3 years !

On the plus side me and the missus are very immature :)

Reminds me of the old joke about the young bull and the old bull looking over the gate into a field of young fresh cows...
Young bull says to old bull..
"Let's run down the field and have ourselves a lovely cow?"
Old bull says "No.... let's walk and have several!"
