Well , I am now officially "old" and have received my first Old Age Pension payment ( last Monday ,October 1st ). I celebrated by going up to the top of Vesuvius ! ( we also visited Monte Cassino ,Amalfi, Sorrento,Pompeii,Assissi ,Florence and Cianciano Terme ; but not in that order !).

This is how I felt about aging

GROWING OLD DISGRACEFULLY

I'VE ALWAYS BEEN A MODEL CITIZEN
I ALWAYS TOOK THE RIGHT PLACE IN THE QUEUE
BUT NOW THAT I AM AGEING
MY BLOOD HAS STARTED RAGING
WHEN SOMEONE TRIES TO TELL ME WHAT TO DO


CHORUS
NOW NEARING THREE SCORE YEARS AND TEN
I'VE STARTED LIFE ALL OVER AGAIN
I'LL FIND THAT SECOND CHILDHOOD, JUST YOU SEE
I'LL SHOUT IF I DON'T GET MY WAY
I'LL THROW A TANTRUM EVERY DAY
AND TRY MY VERY HARDEST TO GROW OLD DISGRACEFULLY


I'VE ALWAYS TRIED TO KEEP MYSELF IN SHAPE
WITH EXERCISE AND DIET I TOOK CARE
BUT NOW MY SIZE IS GROWING
I DON'T MIND THE BULGES SHOWING
I FLAUNT THEM JUST TO MAKE THE YOUNG ONES STARE


I'LL ARM MYSELF WITH ZIMMER FRAME OR STICK
I'LL THREATEN EVERY YOB OUT IN THE STREET
AND WHEN I JOIN MY MATES – IN
ELECTRIC BUGGY RACING
THEY'D BETTER WATCH JUST WHERE THEY PUT THEIR FEET


AND WHEN I TAKE MY VEHICLE ON THE ROAD
I'LL SHOW THE WORLD THAT I HAVE TIME TO BURN
THOUGH THIS MAY BE MY LAST GAME
I'LL DAWDLE IN THE FAST LANE
AND MAKE ALL THOSE BOY RACERS WAIT THEIR TURN

Have fun.............

OVER THE HILL

It's not the grey hair that makes a man old
Nor the faraway look in his eye I am told
But if the heart makes a contract the body can't fulfil
You're over the hill, brother, you're over the hill

If you look at a Venus and just heave a sigh
If you hear a rude joke and you laugh till you cry
If it's all in the mind and you can't raise a thrill
You're over the hill, brother, you're over the hill

You can fool your dear wife with the tenderest of lies
You can shear the old sheep, pull the wool over her eyes
But if she asks for an encore and you say that you're ill
You're over the hill, brother, you're over the hill

Now life is a struggle and the conflict is keen
There are just so many shots in the old magazine
When you've fired the last shot and you cannot refill
You're over the hill, brother, you're over the hill

Now this is my story, alas and alack
When you've squeezed out the toothpaste you can't put it back
So if you want to make whoopee don't wait until
You're over the hill, brother, you're over the hill

[Bill Williams
Changi prison camp, Singapore, 1940s].

Thanks, cousin Will !( and everyone else of course ).Admission to Italian museums is free for over-65s ,so I tried like crazy to get in for nowt , using my passport , but all the museums I tried were privately ,as opposed to State , run ! But at least admission to Pompeii on Sundays is free anyway !
          I'm now living in Tewkesbury , Splotty ,and playing for "Happenstance" border morris ,so hope to see you and The Dame at the next Upton ( we might come by boat !).

Hell, let's make it a music thread.

How many of you (like me) toddled around the kitchen singing "Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I'm 64." when you were actually 64?

Now that you are older, has the song lost its charm? Do you sigh and say, "Ah, to be 64 again" ?

Have you ever been to the Isle of Wight? I know it only from the crossword puzzle.

I have led a good life, full of peace and quiet
I shall have an old age, full of rum and riot.
I have been a good boy, wed to work and study
I shall be an old man, ribald coarse and bloody.

I have never slit throats, even when I yearned to.
Never sang dirty songs that my fancy turned to.
I have been a nice boy, and done what was expected
I shall die and old bum, loved but unrespected.

He sure did need me, because I was feeding HIM. Didn't I did mention that I sang it in the kitchen?

I'm heading for that landmark on October 18th, having been born on Chuck Berry's 21st birthday (or the day he was released from his first prison sentence, if you'd rather.) I'll be spending it in Sicily - did Sorrento, Pompeii, the Vesuvius climb, etc, a couple of years ago, otherwise they'd be on the bucket list.

Had a trip on a traditional sailing barge last week: this was one of my two remaining ambitions. As the other one requires the enthusiastic participation of Jennifer Aniston, it may possibly never happen.

Here's a song from the recently departed Kent singer/songwriter Monty Parkin to suit the occasion, to a tune only slightly reminiscent of 'Sweet Little Sixteen':

They're really rocking in Clacton,
In geriatric hotels,
On the prom in Southwold,
Way down to Tunbridge Wells.
As they cling to their Zimmers,
Their sense of rhythm survives,
The rock and roll generation,
The over 65's.

The over 65's
They love to do the frug,
As they bop in their bathchairs,
They wear a tartan rug.
In the middle of the dance-floor,
They shake their wigs and spin,
'Cos if they ever stop moving,
Rigor mortis sets in.

CH:   Oh doctor, doctor,
       Please may I go?
       I've had my hip operation,
       And my blood pressures low.
       Oh sister, sister,
       I've still got all my drives,
       And I want to rock and roll with
       The over 65's.

The over 65's,
They haven't given up yet.
All the girls look groovy,
Dressed in flannelette,
With an inch or two of make-up,
They still retain their looks,
As they dance in a circle,
Around their pension books.

CH:

They'll be rockin' in Frinton,
In retirement mews,
In out-patient clinics,
And Post Office queues.
All over the country,
They'll disrupt whist drives,
'Cos they've never quite grown up,
The over 65's.

(Substitute the names of your own elderly enclaves at will).
