When your kids are looking at University to go to.


At one time, I had to do a couple of resits in the summer. I obviously didn't do much revision so, panicking, came up to Bradford to do a solid day's worth in a Bradford Hall (hall-of-residence) room before my first exam. I could hardly concentrate all day because of the racket coming from the building of a new block of halls (Shearbridge Hall) twenty yards away.

They knocked down Shearbridge Hall about four years ago and Bradford Hall last year.

When you can't write coherent English any more.

I have never played a computer game; well not since Space Invaders in a pub about twenty five years ago.

I just wonder how much is spent trying to hold back the years? Plastic surgery, lotions and potions and hair transplants are a must for some people - and sometimes going horribly wrong.

When you see the sixth form girls on their way to college and you think "ooh I bet she's cold, she ought to put a nice warm coat on"


Wow! I hope I never get that old! :ph34r: :)

If you're really old, as in watched Benny Hill, then you think "ooh I wish it was still ok to chase after her and smack her backside".
