I've just assumed everyone on here is younger than me unless they've said otherwise :-)


Mauatthecoast Report 25 Apr 2013 16:28

None of your business :-P... but I'm 40 and a likkle bit :-D

edit to say "me nose is itchy and I can't reach to scratch" ;-)

Kay ??? . That is such a nice thing to say, and goes to prove that age does not define the person. I honestly do not feel any different in my head than I did thirty years ago.

I am going to copy Porkie Pie and will be twenty-one from now on :-D :-D

me I am 40 and a big bit lol

Its all in the state of mind tho some are old fogies at 30.

Our grown grandchildren know that nan can banter with the best of them and know what they are talking about too .

As far as searching is concerned some of us have the knack of looking outside the box . Its, too me ,just as satisfying finding info for others as it is when I had BINGO moments on my own searches . As am back to parish records on most sides of my tree and not in the area they came from then helping others is satisfying :-D

That is so true Staffyknot, I was born in Brereton and lived at Etching Hill till I was 9 so I remember walking through the cannock Chase a lot. Just mention the name and I smell pine!!

I'm 65, hate routine and only remember my age when my back gives me jip gardening!! :-S

Rock on Porkie, they don't make them like you anymore


Dermot Report 25 Apr 2013 15:35

Being at the extremity of old age, I have no desire to accept gifts from the devil.


BarneyKent Report 25 Apr 2013 15:35

76 and still going strong. I have been round the Go-Ape tree assault course in Cannock Chase Forest twice in the last year.

Age is state of mind. Think old and you are old.

Paula, It keeps me Young at heart,

I still go to live gigs and only stopped clubbing abt 10 years ago, More down to the cost than age, my intake of alcohol dictates and its expensive in those places

Still rocking and rolling as they say

Exotic dancer indeed!!....don't think we had many of those in the clubs where I played!
It was mainly male dominated and I was sooo shy I was even embarrassed to go off to the Ladies.
Im still in touch with some of the musicians (who are still with us) through the Internet and met up with one last year that I hadn't seen for 55 years! ...we even recognised each other!!...don't know what that says??


PollyinBrum Report 25 Apr 2013 15:14

PP I like your way of thinking. I am now officially 21 too. :-D :-D :-D :-D


CupCakes Report 25 Apr 2013 15:10

Sorry I edited my post at the top about my age - I find it very difficult to handle the age issue I have to admit


Porkie_Pie Report 25 Apr 2013 15:07

As you have asked directly I will be honest

I'm 21 years old or I was the last time I celebrated a birthday as I believe if you don't celebrate it never happened so Ive been 21 ever since
