Hi Peter ~~ These are all good. How we
change our tunes!!
Yes a good week to talk Football.
John gave me a door-bell that plays the

LOUDLY. I'll attach it to the door when we win our next Premiership. I should
live so long.!! Cheers, Merle.

Hi Peter,

thanks for the tip about the ^^^^^

Some guys could get some use from the magic mirror, or perhaps it doesn't worry them what shape they are in.

Walter has taken to wearing braces, says they are more comfortable that the belt trying to hold the pants in remotely the correct position.

Before you say it "Poor Walter"

Hey! How did you get my photo?? ROFL

What is the men's side? Big boobs all the way then at 72, "big boobs that don't hit the floor?" ;-)

Have a great day!

G'day Pop

I've been meaning to ask you for ages, how do you do that strike out thing through a word where you can still read the word? You've done it a couple of times and I've seen it elsewhere but can't track it down myself.

Oh, Oh. I'm 52, but it looks like I'd fit the bill for a 62-year-old lady.

Peter...I love this list and I'm going to send it to my Aunt Virginia who is 79 years old to read...she'll get the biggest kick out of it.

I saw a cartoon with 2 mirrors...in one mirror the beer bellied man saw himself as muscular and in very good shape and in the other mirror the perfectly shaped slim woman saw herself in the mirror with big fat hips.

Peter ~ Sorry... but I think most women see themselves just the opposite! ~ jb///

I'd say those are pretty accurate, Peter. Good post, per as usual.

Sad, but true!

Miss Cellania said...

I would go with the age 72 list. My last husband couldn't keep up either of those. I'm past the point of pickiness!

In fact, I told a young man in India that my requirements for a man are: 1. Be on MY continent. b. Not married, and 3. over 21. He only qualified for one of those.
