Are you Middle Aged

You are Middle Aged if you;

  • Don't understand what young pheasants are talking about.
  • Struggle to read Chaucer in weak candlelight.
  • Hate rowdy taverns.
  • Constantly worry that you might have the Black Death.
  • Don't know or care who Blondel is sleeping with.
  • Tell your wife that Crusaders seem to look younger every year.
  • Struggle with new technology such as the heavy plough and the longbow.
  • Find Gothic architecture too modern.
  • Keep forgetting who the King is.
  • Dream of buying a second hovel in Farnce.

LOL.

I have two middle-aged sons and a daughter that is nearly there.

She could still be!

travis_farmer: Hmm, guess you never can tell how old people are when all you see is text. i had you pegged for being in your mid to late 50's.

66 next month. And male.

“You are Middle Aged ”

When you trim your eyebrow wires.
When you need to cut your nose hairs so you can breath.
When your ears have tuffs of hair at the top.
When the only coloured hair on your body is down there.

I haven't lost my hair, it has just relocated.

Robin, you’ve also ruined my grandmammy image of you! I’m not going to be able to unread your words.

Love it! But I had to do this:

You are medi*Evil* if you;

  • Don't care what young pheasants are all about.
  • Don't read Chaucer cause you can't read.
  • No tavern is rowdy enough.
  • Constantly hope that your neighbor has the Black Death.
  • Listened to The Amazing Blondel in the 970's.
  • Trade your wife for a younger Crusader every year.
  • Love new technology such as the rack and thumbscrew.
  • Find Gothic architecture too Goth.
  • Want to forget who the King is. (No, really.)
  • Dream of buying your peasant neighbor.

Thats me but I'm OLD by most standards except mine. 61 Define what young, middle aged, old, ancient are in years.

Nice.....but you forgot... " jus primae noctis " Tom... :)

TomGeorge: Define what young, middle aged, old, ancient are in years.

It's all in the mind. I am 25.

travis_farmer: my body went soft on me.

The only responses I can think of would not be allowed during family viewing time.

It’s probably for the best Robin...

travis_farmer: having just finished a second floor composite desk, in full cold weather gear, and the only available access via a ladder, plus trudging around in the snow... my mind says i feel about 78 :o

way too many days without work. my body went soft on me.

Yes, but look at all that fresh air and exercise and frostbite and pneumonia you got.... Invigorating :o

To quote Groucho Marx.. "You're only as young as the woman you feel." wagstaffnet.blogspot.com.au/2013/06/the-comedy-of-groucho-marx.html

Tom... :o

You know you are middle aged when you just got a shot of ‘Prevnar 13’ (Our latest purchase $100 each). :confused:

Here, Australia, it is covered by PBS, Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme.
My wife was on Disability Pension Card, so her shot was free, being over 50yo helps too I think.
The two PBS are for Centrelink Benefit Card Holders and Non Card Holders I think.

This is 2015 patient cost of the shot.
I’m not sure if they are the same, but Pneumovax ie what is dispensed.
Just found a listing, they are the same, put the two names together and you get the full pharmacy name.

Tom… :slight_smile:

ardly: Don't understand what young pheasants are talking about.

What a fowl thing to say.

TomGeorge: This is 2015 patient cost of the shot.

It would be interesting to see the impartial scientific study that justifies the extra cost between $49 and $126.

I wonder if it is the same as the difference between Sainsburys and Waitrose supermarkets? It is said the main purpose of Sainsburys is to keep the riff-raff out of Waitrose.

(Apologies if the analogy does not make sense in OZ).

I had mine a couple of years ago for free. (Another benefit of the NHS).

It would be Coles/Woolworths/Aldi and David Jones Stores here in Victoria, OZ. Tom... :)

You still have Woolworths? They went bust here, about 5 years ago.
