Allan, I see you`re still behind the times down under in the colonies. :-(

We dont have "OAP`s" over here in the motherland anymore matey. :-D
We have moved on since those days, We are now uprated to "Senior Citizens" :-P

The great thing about about gaining this new status is... we can act the fool and not be chastised for not acting our age, Oh! and we go back to getting pocket money again, just like we did when we were kids :-D :-D

Have a nice one today, and neck a few beers for me matey. :-D

Happy birthday, Allan :-D You would have been too young to join Beatles, Rolling Stones, Cliff and Shadows. Still a lad :-D

Happy Birthday Allan

Should have guessed you were a Pi$*... pisc...Piscean (artistic in nature)

- Compassionate
- Adaptable
- Accepting
- Devoted
- Imaginative

Pisces needs a dominant partner of role model in their life or they will very easily fall into a pit of self-pity and self-undoing. When they are independent and inspired by life's events, their creativity comes shining through but they are unable to be on their own for long before they start dreaming in their imaginary world of happy people and happy endings. They need other people to keep them grounded and on the right track. :-D :-D

Have a great birthday, Allan! Will you be celebrating with a Barbie? Or is the weather not so good in your part of Oz at the moment.
Anyway, enjoy your official retirement.!
Love from Lynda xx

Many Happy Returns fort omorrow hubby's 60th was on the 10th!!
You get some great concessions over there.....makes me wish I'd emigrated too.
Hope you have a lovely day. :-D <3


Allan Report 16 Mar 2013 21:23

Thanks all

It is now early morning here so I am officially 65.

To the Invisible man, I'm sorry but I couldn't see your post! :-D :-D. In the land of Oz there are many payments of benefits which attract the official name of 'pension', so the one for us Seniors is still officially called the Age Pension :-(

LWS, my wife is also a peskyun....sorry piscean, so if I ever need a dominant influence, I may have to hire one by the hour ;-) :-D

And also thanks to Annx and Tec.

Later today I will finally be opening a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label, which I was going to open when I was 60. I know that on this day I should be drinking Irish Whiskey, but that would be so predictable :-D :-D
