Hi All,
Well the weather here has been dry and warm today,
After taking the dogs for "Walkies" down to the stream and back i decided to remove the old dog wood tree, its old and well over grown so it's now no more
But ive taken half a dozen cuttings for future use (fingers crossed)

I must admit i feel a bit stiff due to not doing much back breaking work for a while but i really enjoyed being outside.

Its a funny thing really gardening "your working away at what ever your doing "but" your mind is thinking about something else, !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! a bit like when your driving along and your turning the wippers on or changing gears
Once you've got more into the driving or gardening it becomes a natual next step without really paying to much attention,
I was thinking about those 400 babies thats been dug up in that workhouse grounds in ireland, how did it happen and why?

I guess we'll never really find out but lets hope this never happens again. Sad

It was the nuns away of dealing with a problem. Scandalous.

Hi tagwex,
It really makes you think, some evil folk in this world
Sometimes until you read the likes of this we dont know how lucky we are,

I think every man/woman has a fear in the back of the mind and as you get older you start to notice that time is so very important,
How many times have you looked at the papers when they've reported some pop star has died and you think christ he was only a few years older than me?

Or you hear the average age for a man to die is such and such and then you start looking at your own age ?
My fear is two fold really , one who will go first "me or the only real love ive ever had in my life"?
One part says if im left then its me and a pet (dog) and just carry on.
But if i go first will she be ok? she's such a nice trusting irish girl and so many times i wish she'd see another side to life, con artist etc and we've met a few
but she always says the same thing "they needed it more than us"
And then the real killer "we've got each other have'nt we"

I wonder if anyone has this thought or is it just me getting old Laughing

Maybe we should start a thread off "KNOW WHEN YOUR GETTING OLD?"

Know when your getting old = when the viragra (excuse spelling) dont work
OR
When you go into the shed stand there and wonder what the hell i came in here for ???
OR
When you leave the wife in the motorway service area and drive home
OR
When you start wearing Y fronts
OR
When you can remember how to write a letter (all "e" mails these days)
OR
When you can remember only two TV stations and the close down time?
OR
When mars bars cost 3pence and christmas stockings had nuts in them but no knutcrackers????

Anyone got any more KNOW WHEN YOU OLD?

Good night tagwex im going to have a whisky and share the settee with the dog Laughing

I don't know what it says about me, but I got to the 'getting to the top of the stairs and forgetting what I'd gone up for' a LONG time ago. Shocked

My best Senior Moment was standing in front of the open fridge door with a hammer .....err?

Just lately I seem to be developing Menopausal TOURETTES! I shout at the telly. Amuses Dave no end.

When I bend down to pick up something I wonder what else I can do when I am down there.

Hi Folks some great ones here,

you know when your getting old;

When you start wearing black "CLOTHING" and gold chains
OR
When that out of date shirt the one with that paisley design on it comes back into fashion
OR
When someone tells you so and so is tobe burried and you say have they really died

Or
when you start dancing at weddings etc and all the younger ones swear they dont know you
Or
when the phone rings on the tele and your picking your hand set up only to hear the dial tones
when you put something in someone's trolly in the supermarket and walk off with it and you swear you never bought those things
Or
when men think those machines in the gents are chewing gum machines
Or
when like the stars at night come out So do your teeth
Or
when you remember when a mouse was a small hairy creature that ran around the skirting bourds and a tablet was something you swollowed.
OR
When you keep saying "HOW MUCH".

AND LAST FOR TODAY

"When you can remember those long long SUNNY 6 WEEKS SCHOOL HOLIDAYS when it never rained???????
