Hi there,

This is my first post so where do I start? I think I am old enough and according to my OH I am definitely grumpy enough so here goes:

1. How old do you have to be before you start saying "Do you know how old I am?" to perfect strangers? I had the urge to do it when I passed sixty-five but nearly five years on, although I am still resisting, the urge is getting stronger!!

2. How old do you have to be before you go "Aaaargh!" every time you bend down to pick something up? I seem to have been doing it since I was about sixty and it is getting worse.

3. How do you know when you have changed from being a "lusty young lad" into a "dirty old man" where noticing excellent examples of the fairer sex becomes "unseemly"? (Actually one of my long time moans is why do women buy bras with adjustable straps and then walk around with one breast sagging four inches lower than the other? Also, having made a spectacle of themselves in this fashion, why do they get upset when you point it out?)

4. Why do they play music on TV programmes so that you can't hear what is being said? I can cope with it during a drama (not really interested in what they are saying anyway) but it annoys the hell out of me during documentaries! I have complained a few times to the BBC but get the usual brush-off that tells me the producer was "working within BBC guidelines" as if such instructions were introduced by Moses, are cast in stone and can therefore never be changed!

5. Why are we sending our brave young lads out to far away places to get themselves killed? I regularly visit the cemeteries of WW1 over in France to remind myself of the sacrifices that have been made to allow me my existing lifestyle; and to remind myself of what happens to ordinary people when politicians get it wrong! At the moment it seems that we are attempting to go against the flow of history, particularly in Afghanistan where the British Raj, the Russians and now the Americans and ourselves are yet again throwing away lives to achieve what? According to our leaders we are there to nullify some nebulous threat from terrorists. Has it never occurred to them that if we stop interfering with other countries the people of those countries may stop attacking us?

I think my five grumps are enough for now so "Have a nice day!" everybody.

When the girls are no longer interested and feel sorry for you rather than attracted to you.... My father will get the message one of these days! (he thinks if a nurse holds his hand or talks nicely to him he's hit the jackpot) lol4

Love it!!! allthumbz

My Mum donated her body to science and was most indignant when Nottingham University sent her a letter when she reached 75 years of age telling her that they didn't want her body because it was too old!

My Dad listened to the tirade of complaint from Mum and, after she had stomped from the room, turned to my wife and I and muttered "I should have given my body to science you know; there are bits of my body that have hardly ever been used!"

As we digested that gem of information he stood up and headed for the door saying in a reminiscent sort of way with "I've never been a lustful man either," and after a slight pause and as he headed for his pigeon loft, "but maybe I got that bit of my life all wrong anyway!"
