You are looking forward to your old age. (0)
says ChuckTom on May 15th 17 (#809411)
Not at all.
says Tiffanee on May 15th 17 (#2567220)
Bosh... you are uncomfortably wise now yet your life is full of laughter.
Old age is an absurdity and you will surely appreciate the joke once you get there :)
says ChuckTom on May 15th 17 (#2567224)
Forward? I'm right in the middle of it, but I'm still looking forward to some good things (like retirement in December).
says JanHaskell on May 15th 17 (#2567227)
I bet your daughter is gonna love it when Dec gets here :)
says ChuckTom on May 15th 17 (#2567230)
No....I'm experiencing it and it's downhill all the way....
says Platinum on May 15th 17 (#2567228)
A MOST philosophical codger
Once SAID of old age, "It's a bodger.
Though it's MOSTLY downhill,
Life remains quite a thrill,
'Cuz I've STILL got my BEST friend, my todger."
says Thinkerbell on May 15th 17 (#2567277)
I hardly see my best friend anymore....
says Platinum on May 15th 17 (#2567298)
Looking forward to retirement and looking forward to old age are not the same thing.
says JustJimColo on May 15th 17 (#2567229)
I'm looking forward to retirement. Unfortunately the old age comes as part of the deal. :)
says Will_Janitor on May 15th 17 (#2567241)
Sadly not for everyone...
says Platinum on May 15th 17 (#2567296)
What can you do? Cant look backward
says Carla on May 15th 17 (#2567323)
If I look backward too quickly I get a crimp in me neck... :(
says ChuckTom on May 15th 17 (#2567354)
Yeah.....like an electric shock:[

I spend a lot of time not looking at my hands :(

I want to be one of those kindly old gents who understands and nurtures rather than one who'll teach those damn ragamuffins a thing or two.
says ChuckTom on May 16th 17 (#2567776)
Hell with that...I ain't looking forward to tomorrow
It really doesn't bother me at all...it is gonna happen one way or another.
It gives my family something to talk about at the next reunion...I almost feel like a celebrity
says Lil_Princess on May 16th 17 (#2567786)
no i hate the thought every year i hate birthdays now.
says LorraineTwevlehundredRaineTwelvehundred on Jun 19th 17 (#2593769)
I'm looking forward to when I no longer have to answer to anybody else and yet will somehow be comfortable and in peace.
says DW2 on Jun 19th 17 (#2593786)
There will always be someone or something to answer to... :(
says ChuckTom on Jun 24th 17 (#2596389)
I disagree. The way I have it set up. The only person I truly have to answer to will be me. Not saying that I won't be hypercritical. That's kind of the point.
says DW2 on Jun 24th 17 (#2596483)
Once I can no longer work I'm screwed and not in a pleasant way
says OzSurfer on Jun 19th 17 (#2593791)
You mean income wise, D?
says ChuckTom on Jun 24th 17 (#2596390)
Yeah, most singles who are on average incomes struggle to pay for rent on their own as well as the rising cost of electricity and other basic living costs, not to mention health insurance etc. There are many older single people who find most of their pension goes in rent, and with electricity costs so high due to moving away from fossil fuels and increasing numbers are choosing between heating or food during winter, with some having their power disconnected due to failure to pay bills. These aren't irresponsible people, or drunks or people on drugs, it's mostly people in my parents age group, ones that grew up during the war, and have always paid their way and suddenly found that they've lost their partner and all their savings for some reason such as ill health, and are struggling to survive on their own. I don't want to end up like this, so it's my goal to work as long as I possibly can by staying as health and as employable as I can.
says OzSurfer on Jun 24th 17 (#2596411)
MAybe if I were one of those people who run marathons at 100, yes. In my body, no.
says Trish on Jun 19th 17 (#2593925)
At my age I don't even buy green bananas.
