Let me see
For my 60th I had
A mug to put my false teeth in
a brown rinse to cover the grey hair
a walking stick
a shawl
And a wallet for my bus pass

Pays to look after your feet I find. Wear different shoes each day. Lets one pair "rest" be cleaned, while you wear the others


Jenxx Report 27 Oct 2008 18:48

You mean to say you can afford 2 pairs of shoes on a pension


David Report 27 Oct 2008 18:51

3 black dress shoes
2 brown dress shoes
3 black work shoes
2 black boots
