In the Full Throes of Middle Age
« on: October 23, 2007, 07:24:08 PM »
Hey, today's my birthday :)

At 43 I consider myself fully in the grip of middle age.  I took the day off and went for a coffee in the ghetto and wondered where all these gay youngsters were coming from.  I went to a car dealership and veered very close to buying a stupidly expensive car that I really don't need.  My partner's away until tonight, so I'll treat myself to take-out pizza and a piece of cake!

Someone once asked me if I liked older men.  I said, Yes, until I became their age, now I like younger men. Happy Birthday Northern Guy.  Have the best day

annie is right.  43 middle age?  Hardly!  YOu're making those of us a few years older (I'm 57) feel like we're old.  I can assure you, that is surely not the case.

By the way, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

The Golden Years

I cannot see
I cannot pee
I cannot chew
I cannot screw

Oh My God What can I do

My memory shrinks
My hearing stinks
No sense of smell
I look like hell!
My mood is bad - can you tell?
My body's drooping
Have trouble pooping
The Golden Years has come at last
The Golden Years can kiss my ass.
