Cheers Ian. After reading all of the above, I'm just browsing ebay for zimmer frames, blue rinse wigs and incontinence accessories so I won't feel out of place in the forum

Don’t bother searching EBay, just ask the irregulars on here for best place for bargains.

Re: Age Survey

I find sleeping on an old rug by the back door helps with most of my bladder problems, at least as far as my owner is concerned.

Now here's a thought. Maybe there is an opportunity for the Zimmer frame with tripod-like mounts for Olympus cameras?

Welcome.

There are other ladies here but most of the time they, sensibly, keep their heads down.

Yes. Whatever happened to Chevvy or whatever her profile name was? She used to be on here a lot but I haven't seen her for a while.

No! Much of the banter (I think that's a fair description) in the wider forum is probably not considered to be worth their participation. That is a shame, because their contribution in e.g. the "Doomed" Brexit string would be of interest.

Don't thing any of the comments were a slap on the wrist. Just an (odd) sense of humour.

Really look forward to seeing you photos, we have a monthly Challenge going so a dramatic photo would be good to enter, or a Landscape next month.

You have a good camera there, what lens is attached?

Yeah - a lot of us on here have that! I'm reminded of a 'warning' on another site* - "May contain nuts!".

*The sadly now defunct 'Wild About Britain', which was by far the best wildlife related site on the Web.

Hi Rebecca, I see you have found your way to the Lounge. As you have noticed, this part of the Forum at least is mainly populated by members who are a composite of Grumpy Old Men, Men Behaving Badly, Last of the Summer Wine and Til Death Us Do Part.

Don't be put off by Harold, it is just his sense of humour - he's harmless really!
